Hello Family –
We are grateful for all of you who continue to pray with us as we develop our strategy for resuming in-person services. For the time being, we will continue offering online-only services, and the building will remain closed until further notice.
As gathering restrictions relax and more information is released, we are developing plans that will protect our congregants following the best guidance available. We agree with President Trump’s mandate pronouncing houses of worship as “essential places that provide essential services.” When we open our doors to resume in-person ministry, we will do so safely with biblical truths at the forefront and protocols that protect you.
Over these past few months, we have been touched by your outpouring of support and resilience as you continue to gather virtually. We want to remind everyone of one certainty – we know that God is with us, and He has already worked this out for our good. With this in our hearts, we can turn to Him today and ask in faith for wisdom and discernment to make the right decisions for Linked UP Church.
The ministry has been diligently enhancing our online broadcasts so that you always feel connected even in this era of social distancing. Our online-only broadcast continues each Sunday at 8:30 AM and 11:00 AM. Visit LinkedUpChurch.com to watch and for more info on virtual classes.
We are always here for you at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Pastors Joel & Patricia Gregory
Updated May 15th:
As promised, we wanted to provide a brief update on the reopening status of Linked UP Church.
My wife and I have decided to continue offering online-only services, and the building will remain closed. We do plan on resuming in-person services again in the very near future.
We are constantly in prayer while listening to the Holy Spirit, the government officials, and health experts to provide a re-opening date for you by the end of this month. More than anything, we believe it is our role and responsibility to prioritize your safety and protect your well-being, while still walking in faith and not fear.
The implications of the pandemic have been widespread and will require additional safety measures, logistics, and adjustments to reopen safely. God has already given us the victory! Without question, it is through discernment and knowledge that we have overcome this and will continue to endure.
Our online-only services will continue broadcasting at 8:30 AM and 11:00 AM on our website, Facebook, and YouTube. Please stay tuned to LinkedUPChurch.com and subscribe to our social media pages for updates.
We are still here for you at email@example.com

Hello Family and Friends –
Recently, Georgia governor Brian Kemp has permitted worship services to resume. We will continue to support and pray for wisdom for our local, state, and federal leaders as they navigate these uncertain times.
Linked UP Church has decided to continue offering online-only services, and the building will remain closed.
My wife and I will continue to monitor the situation and we plan to provide an update on May 15, 2020. Once a date is established for in-person services to resume, we want to welcome you back only with the utmost care while maintaining safety for everyone. Please stay tuned to LinkedUPChurch.com and follow our social pages for ongoing updates.
