Mid-Week Update and Devotion 3/31/2020

Update from Elders/Leadership

Dear Church Family,
With the implementation of the President’s initiative of “15 Days to Slow the Spread”, we have decided that Calvary will cancel all services for the next 2 weeks, in order to comply with the request of our government, in accordance with Romans 13. This is not an easy decision to make, as we desire to be together as a family and worship our Creator, Sustainer, and Savior with one another, but we know it is the right decision.
At this time, we plan to meet together again on April 5 at our regular times. We will continue to monitor this actively and rapidly evolving event. At the time I am typing this letter, we now have a confirmed case of coronavirus in our community that is not affiliated with travel, which means we have now entered a period of community spread of this virus. We ask for your patience and prayers as we navigate this unique situation.
We have asked our office staff to work from home during this time, in order to protect them and their families. We will be checking the mail and the phone messages on a regular basis.
Please join me in continuing to give to the church. This is for your good. In a time of uncertainty, to put your trust in the Lord by continuing to commit to give to His work is an act of faith that honors Him. We encourage you to give joyfully. His Word instructs us to give not just in times of plenty, but at all times. It is a constant reminder that we always have been, and always are completely reliant on God as our Provider. You may give online, or mail your check to the church office.
We ask all of you to be extremely diligent during this time, especially those over age 60 with chronic medical conditions, and all of you over age 80, as you are more susceptible to this virus. Please communicate ANY needs that you may have to us; we are here to serve you. We will gladly pick up groceries, meals, medicine, supplies, and drop it off at your house, leaving it on your doorstep. Please stay at home and limit your visitors for your protection. There are phone numbers listed at the bottom of this for you to reach out to us for your needs.
Continue to practice social distancing, as advised by the CDC. It is critical that we slow the spread of this virus, and we need to do our part to love our neighbor by keeping them and ourselves healthy.
Finally, remember that God is sitting on His throne. All is under His sovereign hand. He is in complete control. “The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything.” (Phillipians 4:5-6)
With all our love in Christ,
CBC Leadership
