As we are all aware, the global spread of the coronavirus, COVID-19, has become a central topic of discussion and concern for many of us. It is causing us to think about the things we take for granted and to rethink how we go about the practices of our daily lives. Our approach as the church is to take it one week at a time and for us to consider new ways of continuing long-standing practices and traditions.
As you know, we broadcast the last 2 Sundays online only. Due to the high demand on streaming providers, we experienced some technical difficulties during our 9:45a service. Our teams scrambled to make some quick changes that allowed us to get the stream back to your screens. This Sunday, we are creating some backup solutions to hopefully avoid any outages.
On Monday our Governor asked faith-based organizations to avoid gathering until after April 6th. In response to this request, we will NOT host any on-site services at either of our locations in Canton or Jasper for the next two Sundays (March 29th & April 5th). We are also canceling all activities that take place at our locations for the next two weeks, including Care Groups and RevStudents. Our offices will remain closed, and our amazing staff is continuing to work remotely. If you call the office during our normal business hours, our team is still answering phones and will respond.
What about Easter? We are going to gather as much information as we can before making a decision for our Easter services. Our plans are to be ready for either on-site services or online only. Once we know, we will communicate with you again as we learn more about changes in social distancing measures over the coming weeks.
Make sure you are staying connected to the life of the church during this season. We have several ways to help you do that. We are:
- Providing a daily online devotional & prayer time at noon on Facebook
- Offering 2 additional online service options on Sunday evenings at 4:30p & 6:15p
- Building a new landing page on our website to quickly get all the information you need to connect with our Adults, Kids and Student ministries
- Updating our social media feeds daily - Facebook, Instagram, Twitter
- Offering text messaging alerts - text the word REVUPDATES to 1-888-682-7701
- Implementing easy ways for you to give at Give.Revolution.Church or by texting any amount to 84321
Even though we aren’t meeting in person, we are still the church, and we are still on mission. In fact, we had 3 people trust Christ through our online services and the daily devotional & prayer time. God is so good! I am praying for each of you during this time, and our church stands ready to walk with you through this difficult season.

We are committed to the health and safety of our church family. We also believe that as followers of Jesus, we are to respond in the current situation of the COVID-19 virus in a Christ-like way. It is important to be informed, sensitive and wise in our preparations. It is equally important to remember that our trust is in God who offers hope regardless of circumstances.
Our leadership team at Revolution Church has decided to move our weekend services online. We will not host any on-site services at either of our locations in Canton and Jasper for the next two Sundays (March 15 & March 22). In addition, we have canceled all activities that take place at our locations for the next two weeks. This includes Care Groups and RevStudents.
We are also postponing our Jasper Campus Grand Opening until further notice.
This is not a decision we have made out of fear, but rather out of love and our desire to be a good community partner. Beginning Monday, schools in Cherokee and Pickens Counties are closing for two weeks. Therefore, we want to join them in order to help stop the spread of this virus.
We are excited to continue teaching through Romans this Sunday. We will be digging into Romans 13:1-7. While we won’t be gathering together physically in our locations, we are looking forward to gathering online.
Join us online at 9:45a, 11:15a, 4:30p & 6:15p this Sunday.
