How We're Approaching This Time
If you have not yet physically returned to church and are wondering how things are going, this is for you! On Sunday mornings, all of our Sunday School classes are meeting, and things are going well. Two groups are still meeting off-campus, and some members are still engaging by Zoom. We are not having "Cornerstone Coffee" before Sunday School.
Our church services are also going smoothly. We ask that everyone wear a mask as they travel around the campus and that they enter and exit the sanctuary through the outside doors to make it easier to socially distance while finding seats.
On Wednesday evenings, we have restarted all of our events except for family supper. We have not announced when we will restart suppers. And as with everything else, it has been going well. We cannot stress enough the importance of policing your family's health. If anyone in your family is showing any symptoms of illness, we ask that you stay home -- help us protect the health of everyone in our church family.
Stuck at home? Hunkered down? Getting antsy?
This latest world crisis is no laughing matter. It's affecting countless lives and livelihoods. It's keeping people home and isolated. It won't be long before you start feeling lonely and maybe discouraged. Well, don't let those feelings win! We're your church family, and we're here for you.
Ask God, in His mercy, to stop this pandemic and save lives—not only in our communities but around the world, particularly in places that are unequipped medically to deal with the virus. (Isaiah 59:1-2)
Pray for President Donald Trump and other government leaders—international, federal, state, and local—to have the wisdom to direct us in the best courses of action for prevention and care. (Romans 13:1–4)
Scripture says—teach us to number our days carefully so that we may develop wisdom in our hearts. Pray that the Lord will give us wisdom in this moment of fear as the foundations of what we know are shaken, that others would realize how fragile life is and how real eternity is, and they would see their need to turn to God. (Psalm 90:12)
Ask God to protect our missionaries and their families around the globe, using this global crisis to advance His Good News to the whole world. (Mark 16:15)
