It is no mystery that our world is going through an unprecedented time of crisis and challenge.
With the mass cancelations and delays of everything from travel to sporting events, to amusement parks, not to mention the closing of schools and churches. I can’t remember anything in my life that had the potential, as does the Covid -19 virus, to affect families at every age level and area of life.
On Monday, March 16th state and federal leaders have declared a health emergency limiting the size of gatherings to fewer than 10 people in order to stop the virus from spreading. While this may seem extreme to some, that’s the reality of a pandemic.
As a result, the Deacons and I have decided that out of concern for the safety of our members and community we are suspending all church activities immediately. This includes all mid-week services, Bible Studies, and weekend services.
If you have any needs or prayer requests please send them to the church as usual. We expect things to keep changing rapidly so we plan to communicate often with you providing as much information as we can.
Remember that church is a body of people, not a place, so while programs are canceled, we encourage you to stay engaged in church life in the following ways.
1. Trust in God’s plan and presence.
There is no need to fear. We are taking these measures out of an abundance of caution as we desire to proceed with wisdom.
Pray for the rapid containment of this virus and the challenges it is causing in the lives of all people. Pray for great wisdom and discernment for our leaders at every level.
3. Watch Online

4. Call or text friends from church to check in and pray together.
5. Continue giving to support our church.
Please remember that even though we may not be able to be together physically, our bills don’t take a break.
Going forward, we will evaluate the situation on a weekly basis and provide frequent updates.
Let’s take the lead in being God’s people who think from a biblical worldview and act in ways that bring a witness to our great God who has shown us a better way.
