COVID-19 UPDATE – March 17, 2020
Important Information from Pastor Paul
As you are aware the spread of the coronavirus has caused major disruptions and changes to life as we know it. It has also stirred up in some fear, anxiety and even panic. Remember that the Lord is still on the throne and still at work. “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go” (Joshua 1:9). These words certainly bring us comfort in a time of unrest and the unknown.
Our Leadership team has been closely monitoring the situation. The President of the United States and TN Governor, Bill Lee, have sent out new directives limiting public gatherings to no more than 10 people in an attempt to stop the virus from spreading. In adherence to the authority placed over us, we will not be meeting at the church for our Wednesday Evening and Sunday Mornings Services until further notice. We will, however, live stream both services on our Facebook page. In addition, all small group bible studies will also be suspended for now.
Again, we will live stream our Wednesday and Sunday Services on our Facebook page. So, please join us as we continue our verse by verse study of God’s Word.
During this difficult time be assured that we are praying for you, our community and our nation and we invite you to do so as well.
A great suggestion was passed onto me this past weekend that I would love to share with you. We can still show the love of Christ to our community during the coronavirus outbreak by simply being a good neighbor. If you live near families who have high-risk individuals or elderly in their homes, reach out, see if they need anything. Maybe you can help them by picking up supplies or food if they cannot get out. We can still be the hands and feet of our Lord.
We encourage you to be praying for our leaders and our nation. Practice good health hygiene yourself and remember we serve a God who tells us not to live in fear.
If you need help, please let us know.
“Whenever I am afraid, I will trust in You.
In God I will praise His word, In God I have put my trust; I will not fear.
What can flesh do to me?”
