The elders and deacons met this morning to discuss and make a plan concerning the coronavirus national emergency. The hope is that it won’t have a big impact on our community, but we must be wise and intentional in doing our part to minimize the potential impact.
Please use this time to think about our priorities as Christians. How can we serve others? How can we encourage faith? How can we pray?
The elders have decided to continue with the 9:30 adult Sunday School class and the 10:30 church service tomorrow (March 15). However, children’s church and nursery will not be available. We will also NOT be serving coffee or treats.
Pete Thompson, Church Chairman, will explain the rapidly-developing plans, and there will be further updates on the website and Facebook pages.
In order to minimize the spread of the virus and protect our most vulnerable, church services, youth group, AWANA are cancelled as of March 16. The elders and deacons are currently working on organizing the congregation by area so that everyone will have opportunity to come alongside to help as needed.
Home groups: Leaders are developing a plan for home groups where people can meet, worship and hear a message from Steve through YouTube or the website. If you would be interested in hosting a gathering, please let us know.
If you play an instrument, please get in touch with Lori King.
Our hope is that in just a few weeks, we will be gathering at church again.
Right now, communication is key. Please make sure the church has your email address. You can send it to the church’s email address, which is on the lower right side of the main page of this website.
These measures might seem drastic. But the evidence shows it is serious and the best way to minimize the impact, is to take measures EARLY to keep people away from the virus. I’ll post more information about it. Of course, we trust God. But He also calls us to be wise, recognize danger and protect our loved ones.
