In the past few weeks, we have had to adjust to a new normal as a church family. Although we have not been meeting in person on Sundays to worship together, we have been quick to discover new opportunities to connect not only in our city, but around the world.
Garrick and Dziu Roegner are HP Pres church members that have been living as missionaries in Spain with their family to share the love of Jesus on university campuses. The country was instructed to lockdown on March 13 due to COVID-19, and their family of five has been spending much more time together in their apartment. “One of the blessings that our family has really enjoyed is to be able to worship with our HP Pres family every Sunday,” Dziu mentions. “Our children look forward to it every week, and they have really enjoyed having the choice between traditional or contemporary.”
Although thousands of miles away, this season has brought the Roegners closer to their home church family. When word of online VBS made way, Dziu immediately signed her youngest, Violet, up. Because of their time in Spain, none of their children have participated in VBS before. Dziu is so excited to have Violet connect with our church family through silly songs and fun Bible stories.
