Join us for our Good Friday Online Experience on April 10. Tune in to the home page here on our website or Facebook page to follow the events of Good Friday in real time. For each major event of Good Friday there will be a Bible reading and short devotional point from one of our Pastors via video. This experience will guide you through what the Bible describes happened to Jesus from his trial before the High Priest through His death on the cross. Check back here on our website for a full schedule coming this week.
We are looking for people to help with cameras and broadcasting for our Sunday services. If you are interested in being a part of our weekend service, please reach out to our worship pastor, Charlie Flack at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Join us on Mondays at noon, for a Facebook Live prayer time. On Tuesdays at 6:30pm, we will lead a Devotional time. Both will be led by staff and possibly some guest hosts. It has been a great time to connect with our Spring Lake family and be encouraged through prayer and the Word of God! Click here for our Facebook page.
First off, we want to thank all the volunteers who have helped shift our services to online only. They have put in a ton of hours, effort, and creativity to allow us to gather virtually during this time. This past weekend, our services were in over 600 homes and viewed by many more people. To follow Governor Evers’ recent Safer at Home order, weekend services and mid-week events will continue to be virtual until further notice. Please stay tuned to our Thursday updates and the newsletter for the latest news.
We have kicked off two Facebook Live events this past week and will continue them until further notice. On Mondays at noon, we will host a Facebook Live prayer time. On Tuesdays at 6:30pm, we will lead a Devotional time. Both will be led by staff and possibly some guest hosts. The sessions were a blast to host and created a great way to stay connected as a church family. Together, over 450 people viewed and interacted with these Facebook Live sessions. Mark them in your calendar and join us this week as we continue Monday Prayer at noon and Tuesday Devotional at 6:30pm. Click here for our Facebook page.
Our Children’s Ministry has been extremely active through Facebook. If you haven’t already, please follow the Spring Kids Facebook page to stay engaged with all things Children’s Ministry. On the Facebook page, through our website, and regular emails your kids can continue to grow in their relationship with God. As a parent, you will also enjoy the updates and lessons given by our wonderful staff and volunteers involved in weekend services and Awana. More information can be found at the website also.
Student Ministry has also been busy connecting online, primarily through their Instagram account. Please follow springlakestudents on Instagram and their website page for the latest. By connecting with Student Ministry, your students will continue to receive solid teaching geared towards them and relationally connect with peers and wonderful adult leaders. It’s also a great time to check out Student Ministry virtually as a parent or a student who has not attended a Wednesday Night yet.
To abide by Governor Evers’ Safer at Home Order, our offices will be closed starting Wednesday, March 25 until further notice. Please stay tuned to the weekly newsletter and video updates every Thursday for the latest response from Spring Lake Church.
As you can imagine, those who regularly give during services have had their routines impacted. If you typically give while in a service, you can still continue to support Spring Lake online by clicking here or mail checks to the Bellevue Campus at 2240 Klondike Rd. Green Bay, WI 54311. Your generous gifts are greatly appreciated.
We will be cancelling weekend gatherings until further notice, but we will keep you updated for when things start up again through the Newsletter and our Thursday updates.
We will be starting a new Sermon Series this weekend called “Reality Check.” Too often we have this strange idea that if God is at work, then nothing will go wrong. But many times, just the opposite is true! What you will hear this weekend is that even when God himself came to earth, there was a reality check of what the people expected.
Through this time, it is so important for us to stay connected. Unfortunately, the latest mandates have made it very challenging for us as Life Groups. But be encouraged! We will still be meeting as Life Groups through virtual options! All Life Group leaders have been contacted about options that are available so that we are able to continue in community with one another online. This will give groups the opportunity to connect and have some “face to face” time to study through the word together and pray together. If you have been on the fence about Life Groups or were planning to attend the Life Group Connect event that had to be cancelled, please know that there is still an opportunity to join a group! We currently have 12 open groups that are available to join. We want to make sure you are staying connected within a community and are being pointed towards Jesus during this time.

There are so many opportunities to be spreading hope during a time like this! One way that Spring Lake is doing that is through a partnership with St. John’s Homeless Shelter. Spring Lake Downtown is being used as an overflow shelter to help our neighbors in need. There are many opportunities to help, but please do not take action unless instructed by Spring Lake Church! It is very important to prevent any spread of sickness to our vulnerable population. There is a list of opportunities to help and more information at www.springlakechurch.org/outreach.
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit!” Romans 15:13

Dear Spring Lake Church Family,
With the wave of cancellations in the news, you may be wondering how the spread of Coronavirus might impact Spring Lake Church. At this time we have decided to cancel our in-person services for this upcoming weekend. The good news is we will be live-streaming our services on Sunday, March 15 at 9:15 a.m. and 10:45 a.m. on our Facebook Page and here on our website by clicking here. Pastor Jack Guerra will be concluding our series on the book of Acts along with a closing round table discussion with Pastors Ryan Groshek, Adam Jackson, and Bill Van Kirk.
In addition, Student Ministries will hold their midweek event online and AWANA is already canceled for spring break. Life Groups will continue to meet at the discretion of their Life Group leaders.
Throughout the week, we will monitor and consult experts to determine if future services will be impacted. If further cancellations are made, updates will be part of our weekly newsletter the Thursday prior to the weekend. Updates will also be on our website and our social media.
As a reminder, please remain, as you always have, faithful financially. If you normally give financially during services, please consider giving online during this season.
Click here to Give to Spring Lake Church.
Please join us in praying for families impacted by the spread of the Coronavirus worldwide.
Spring Lake Church Loves God. Spring Lake Church Loves Green Bay!
