𝐀𝐧 𝐈𝐦𝐩𝐨𝐫𝐭𝐚𝐧𝐭 𝐌𝐞𝐬𝐬𝐚𝐠𝐞 𝐅𝐫𝐨𝐦 𝐏𝐚𝐬𝐭𝐨𝐫 𝐀𝐥𝐥𝐚𝐧 𝐀𝐛𝐨𝐮𝐭 𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐂𝐨𝐫𝐨𝐧𝐚𝐯𝐢𝐫𝐮𝐬
Hello church, and happy Wednesday to you! I won’t take up much of your time, but I wanted to address the growing concerns over public gatherings and the spread of the Coronavirus in our community. Please hear me: I don’t take lightly what is happening, this situation has created an atmosphere of panic and concern that has affected everything from air travel to toilet paper; from the Dow Jones to hand sanitizer.
I will not live in fear. I will not stop living my life. I will not stop ministry.
I will not stop greeting my brothers and sisters in Christ with a handshake and a hug, however, I encourage you to do what makes you feel the most comfortable during this time.
The Church is the Ecclesia – the “assembly” or “gathering” of God’s people. It is my commitment that we will continue to gather publicly and worship together. With all that said, God has also gifted us with a brain, so let’s use it! If you are sick, use wisdom and stay home to avoid getting others sick and watch our services online at New Life Church
We should be courteous in this area regardless of the Coronavirus.
Church, let’s not panic. Let’s use wisdom. Let’s also wash our hands (a lot).
But let us also continue to meet together and build one another up in the most Holy faith. And that can start tonight! New Life is the place to be on Wednesday nights! There’s something for every age and every stage in life.
We meet at 7PM and we hope to see you tonight.
I leave you with this:
