Dear Church Family and Friends,
Many of you have asked questions about the coronavirus and its potential impact on our church gatherings. I am writing to encourage you that as we enter into this weekend and the upcoming Lord’s Day, your officers are working together to implement appropriate protocols so that we can continue to enjoy worship and fellowship together. We will let you know as plans develop for this.
I want to encourage you that this is an opportunity for us to remember that as Christians, we are secure in the Lord Jesus Christ. While there will be disruptions in the normal routines of our lives, the Lord has ordains our steps for good and not for harm. This is an opportunity for us to remember that our faith and trust are in Him, rather than how well we can prepare for any eventualities that may occur. While most of us have not experienced anything like the current conditions with the coronavirus, the Church has throughout her history. And the testimony of the saints of ages past was not one of fear. It was a testimony of faithful trust in Christ, out of which flowed peace and calm assurance. The fruit of such faith was that loving and encouraging one another, and loving and serving their neighbors, and even putting themselves at great risk at times to care for others in need. So, this is an opportunity for us to grow in faith, in hope, in love, in maturity in Christ, and service to those in need.
Know that your pastors and officers love you, and are praying for you.
Love in Christ,
