In the days ahead, we will continue to track the state of this virus and respond with the welfare and safety of the church in mind. More information will follow as we seek to navigate upcoming weeks with wisdom.
Many of you are involved in community groups, and that care and prayer for one another should continue even in virtual contexts. Please pay special attention to those who may be in need through this time and encourage each other in the Lord.
Finally, although we should demonstrate caution in our response to the Coronavirus, we should also think of ways that we can pursue new opportunities to reach neighbors, friends, and family with the gospel. People are afraid, and the effects of this pandemic are going to impact many. We need to ask God to give us confidence in Him and courage to share the gospel with others. Psalm 34:4-5 says, "I sought the Lord, and he answered me and delivered me from all my fears. Those who look to him are radiant, and their faces shall never be ashamed.” As we trust in the living God through this trial, he will make us radiant in the city. May he help us display the gospel of grace during this time.
