Regarding the Covid-19 threat that has now become a reality for us to contend with here in northeast Ohio. On Thursday, Governor DeWine ordered that all Ohio schools be closed for three weeks beginning Monday, March 16 and that no Ohioans gather in groups of more than 100 people. Although Churches are not prohibited to gather for worship, the Elders and I have decided to support the Governor’s actions to slow the spread of this Virus, by suspending all Sunday Services, Wednesday Night activities, and any ministry activities of our Church, beginning today, March 12 through April 4, 2020. I am hoping that we will be able to resume Sunday Services and all activities beginning with Palm Sunday, April 5, 2020. Our Church office will remain open for our regular office hours (9-3 Tuesday – Friday).
Brothers and Sisters, we are a people of faith and wisdom; this is a good time for us to look for ways to be helpful to those in need, especially considering the elderly, sick and perhaps those who are in need of childcare. We have a great opportunity to represent Jesus in this situation. God’s got this. He is in control. 2 Tim. 1:7 “We have not been given a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and self-control.”
