From your Pastor:
The past few months have brought hundreds of reports of the Corona virus in other countries. Now that it has entered the United States, we as Christians at Community Bible Church want to be pro-active with the hope that we can limit its spread. After considerable prayer, research, and thought, the leadership has decided we will only meet for the morning worship service tomorrow morning. At that time, we will discuss with the congregation things that we as a church can implement to decrease the likelihood of the virus passing from member to member. Because children are so likely to touch people and things, we will not be having children's church or nursery. The nursery will be open if you as a parent want to take your own child there, but we will not obligate the assigned nursery workers.
We are thankful that, at this time, we are not required to cancel services. At times like these, we need the fellowship and encouragement of other believers. We need the prayer support. We need to be reminded of the great God Who loves us so much and controls all things. While it is deemed prudent, we will hold services. We will continue to livestream each morning service as we usually do, however; particularly for those who cannot attend. This can be accessed on Facebook at Community Bible Church, Norfolk, NE.
Please know that what we do, we do NOT do out of self-protection, but out of love—love for Christ and love for others. We change our behavior because we love. Out of love, we stay away from people who are symptomatic, so we ourselves do not become carriers. Out of love, we stay away from people if WE are symptomatic. Throughout Scripture, we are told to help the weak. We ask those at risk because of age or compromised health to stay away from large group settings. We wash our hands, avoid unnecessary physical contact, use tissues to catch sneezes or coughs, clean carefully, etc.
Out of love, we do not judge one another. There are godly justifications for many parts of this equation. If you choose to stay away from services until the threat is minimized, we understand. Please do not feel that you are being pressured to be in church. You should be fully persuaded in your own mind and let others do the same.
Out of love, we also reach out to those who are in need. We pray and give. We sacrifice. We are "the hands and feet of Jesus" in this world. This is a time for caution and concern as there will undoubtedly be troubled times ahead for our country. But it is not a time for fear. Our God is bigger than any virus. Our times are in His hands. Our faith is not worth having if it is not bigger than this situation. There will be fearful people in your circle of acquaintances that do not know Jesus as Savior. What an opportunity to share with them a Friend Who controls all things! Will it not be worth it if souls are redeemed forever?
Be informed. Be careful. Be prayerful. Be loving. Be trusting.
"My hope is Jesus, the Anchor of my soul, the Ruler of this universe, the One Who's in control. He saved me, and He will keep me till the end. The Rock of my salvation, on Christ I will depend. My hope is Jesus." – Ron Hamilton
