In light of the coronavirus outbreak in America, along with President Trump’s guidelines to have no gatherings of more than ten people, and further direction from the governor and in accordance with government guidelines, there will be no congregational worship service during this time. As per the most recent update from Governor Wolf, we are not gathering before May 25th.
We will continue streaming the worship service via the link below and you can continue your faithful giving here or by mail.
Our decision to move these services online came down to the biblical principles of submitting to “governing authorities” and “loving our neighbor.” We want to cooperate with government recommendations and to also do our part to protect our neighbors within our community.
All other church activities will be cancelled as well. We will have no Bible studies, congregational Wednesday night prayer meetings (link here to our online prayer meetings via Zoom -- check your email or contact the church office or Tim Svendsen for the password at firstname.lastname@example.org), or recreational activities. There will be no church activities until after May 25th.
Don’t worry. God is still in control. The Holy Spirit still lives in us. Jesus is still king. No disease or infection—not a single death or a single breath—is outside of his control. He knows what’s going on.
He has promised us that “neither death nor life” or, as Paul goes on to say in verse 38 of Romans 8, “nor things present nor things to come” can ever “separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
We are forever joined to God and nothing, not one thing that we encounter in this life, can ever take that away. That’s where we find our hope, how we find our peace.
The elders will continue monitoring the situation, and update the congregation accordingly.
Stay safe and God bless.
