Dear Friends and Family,
We are wanting to stay connected with everyone during this Quarantine time. We will use every possible means to make this happen.
This page has been designed to keep you up-to-date with any new information or announcements you may need as being a part of Word of Life or TBO. We will be updating these announcements as needed. So it may be good to check back periodically to see if anything has changed.
Please be patient with us as we learn how to do this in the most effective and efficient way. We are open to suggestions to better what we are trying to accomplish, so feel free to give your input. This is new territory for everyone, and it will be a work in progress as we learn how to did this the best way. Thanks.
We love you and are endeavoring to do everything possible to be of assistance and encouragement as we go through this very unusual and difficult period in our country.
This is the time to keep ourselves strong spiritually and your keep faith active. It’s very easy to get pulled into the fear and negative atmosphere that surrounds us, as well as the angry, fearful, negative attitudes of the general public.
We are a Covenant People, in Covenant with Almighty God.
We have access to ALL the Covenant Promises.
We are Loved by God, and Each Other.
We are a Blessed People.
No Weapon formed against us will prosper.
If God is for us, who can be against us, and because of the Covenant, HE IS FOR US.
We are the Light and Salt to this world, they need
us to be the Ekklesia Church now more than ever.
We are Over-Comers, and we will not only get
through this - but we will make a Godly difference in the people and the world around us.
We Love and Appreciate every one of you!
Pastors Vern & Mary
1) To see what the current Executive Order from the Governor says, please follow the link below.
a. In this order, all groups are to stop gathering. Churches
come under point #5.
2) In an effort to remain Connected and Available to each other, we are instituting a number of things that will hopefully help us accomplish this.
A. We will be “Live-Streaming” more:
a. Live Stream will begin Sunday's at 9:15 at the start of prayer
b. Sunday Service Live Stream will begin at 10 AM.
(Not sure what those will look like at this point - We’ll be learning as we go)
c. We are considering Live-Streaming every Wednesday at 7pm.
- This will include a time of interaction where you can ask questions
and interact with service (only LIVE, not recorded messages)
d. If anything major comes up in between Wednesdays and Sundays - we
will be in contact about updates and additional information.
3) Contacting each other:

4) Group gatherings are an option:
We are researching this, but appears that any recovery type groups are exempt from this
Executive Order. If this is the case, we will be running the ‘Conquerors Group’, and the ‘Betrayal and Beyond Group’ at TBO.
Check back. When we know, we will post it.
5) This is the time for you to minister to each other:
To our knowledge you can go to each other’s homes, as long as you are not compromised. Group size is the stay 10 people or less, if possible.
Please check with the person to know if they want visitors before you showing up.
So whether it’s for a ministry purpose, or just to spend some time together, feel free to stay connected with each other.
Now is the time for you to get involved and help meet people’s needs.
(Helping each other with ?????? - whatever is needed)
(Buying / bringing food to those who are not wanting to leave their house)
(Praying with them)
(Fixing something that breaks in their house)
(Spending time with the ones who feel they need to stay in their homes)
6) This is a good time to grow your relationship with God.
All the messages are available online. Feel free to catch-up or just listen to new things.
7) Stay POSITIVE and FAITH FILLED!
Turn on some praise and worship, speak life, faith and the Word over yourself, your family and communities, unplug and remember Who is in control.
We will get through this together and with God.
In peace and in health!
