here's what we're doing as a church staff
No matter how dire the circumstances get, the Lord remains our refuge and strength, “an ever-present help in trouble” (Ps. 46:1). To trust in the Lord amid trouble is to experience and bear witness to the power of Christ.
We must pray for the sick and the scared, for public health officials, for doctors and nurses, for researchers, and for caregivers. As Christians, we believe prayer has power, so we seek help from the Lord.
The media is inundated with daily updates and it’s impossible to read, absorb and respond to every news report, Tweet, or latest rumor. We’re following a reliable list of information for educational, planning and management purposes.
CDC on COVID-19: The US Center for Disease Control’s up-to-date resources on coronavirus.
CDC Resources for Community and Faith-Based Organizations: The CDC has also created resources specifically for faith-based organizations to respond to influenza pandemic, which are applicable in this situation. As a church, we’re implementing this guidance.
Managing Anxiety Around Coronavirus Coverage: The American Psychological Association created this resource to help manage anxiety around coverage of COVID-19.
Addressing Mental Health Issues: This resource from the Mental Health and Psychosocial Support Network provides guidelines for addressing mental health issues that may arise, and offers advice for messaging, including among children, older adults, people with disabilities, and those in quarantine.
Because COVID-19 likely spreads like the cold and the flu, personal hygiene is very important for all ages. We’re also doing the following:
We’ve established a staff team that is meeting regularly to review all of our efforts in response to COVID-19.
We’re following communication with local public health officials and staying informed of community updates.
We’ve postponed Forward Classes and Liberty Weekend to a later date (not yet determined).
We’ve adjusted both our weekend and Vertical services to be solely online until further notice.
LifeGroups are being evaluated week to week. As of now, they are meeting online via Zoom or Google Hangouts.
We’re determining the best way to help our communities that are being affected the most.
We’re putting all updated information on this webpage and our social media.
All Good Friday and Easter Services will now be held online.
here's what you can do to help
Pray for our community and those directly affected by COVID-19. Pray for the health care workers that are treating the sick and those public health administrators making difficult decisions. Pray that God would protect our community from the continuing spread of this virus.
Reflect Christ. In these anxious days, the church (all of us) can shine as a light of hope, care, faith, patience and prudence. We can demonstrate for the world how our faith provides true assurance against worry and fear.
Help serve our community. You can keep up with all updated ServeCLT opportunities here.
