Makers Church Family,
As we continue to see the effects of the COVID-19 across our nation and the world, we want to assure you that we are taking every precaution to keep our community healthy. As often happens in times of crisis (both large and small), it is easy to give way to fear, worry, and doubt but we want to lead as the Church with messages of hope and healing for all of those affected.
In light of efforts to keep our communities safe, especially those most vulnerable, we have decided the following…
LOVE OUR NEIGHBORS
FLATTEN CURVE WITH SOCIAL DISTANCING
In attempt to strongly do our part to love each other well, especially the most vulnerable to this virus, and to mitigate its’ spread and effect, we highly encourage all of our people to adhere to all CDC recommendations regarding cleanliness, hygiene, social distancing and sheltering in place.
To clarify and reiterate, we are not canceling church! We are the church when we stand together, and thus the church is where you are. What we are doing, as the church, is finding creative ways to stay engaged and connected relationally, even as we maintain physical distance, and continuing to be a voice of hope and community of practical love. Social Distance does not need to mean relational distance or social isolation.
If you are sick or are caring for someone who is sick, we would love to pray for you and with you! Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
- For peace and trust amidst the fear and the unknown
- For supernatural protection and healing.
- That God would preserve our health and the health of those in our community.
- That we may walk in faith, remembering that, He has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind (2 Tim. 1:7).
- For wisdom and protection for those fighting on the front lines against COVID-19.
You are not alone. Do not need to let fear take over. Text. Call. Write. Check-in with each other and pray for one other. We are in this together! We are the body of Christ and we are family. As Makers Church, we will continually endeavor to be a light in our community during this season of darkness, a people of hope in a time of fear, and the hands and feet of Jesus to those who need a touch from God.
This is a great opportunity for us to BE the church and for us to be HERE FOR GOOD. Stay tuned for opportunities to respond in this crisis and be light and love in the city.
