Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make straight your paths.
So, let’s focus on God, seeking to know Him more, pray like crazy, keep informed of what is going on, and find ways to help others. You can also keep updated by clicking here.
We will get through this together!
As you may know, the Coronavirus is an emerging situation. The
World Health Organization has just classified COVID-19 as a pandemic. Though
this is an evolving issue, the Center for Disease
Control and Prevention has assured the current possibility of
contracting the coronavirus is quite low, especially in comparison to normal
strands of the flu. The death toll is also very low compared to those
associated with diseases and sicknesses that are very common among us.
We respect that fears are real and events like these can cause great anxiety. However, we can find hope! God invites us to bring our anxious thoughts to Him:
“…do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7
In addition to letting God guide us into peace, we can further alleviate anxiety by being well-informed by trustworthy sources. Check out World Health Organization live updates here and Orange County government Public Health Care Agency updates here.
These precautions and plans are to do our best to restrict the of spread the virus. But, let’s remember that God is fully in control and that we have an opportunity to demonstrate our faith in Him through this season. We would like to urge you to be praying for all the people involved and for our local government and community leaders.
Although there have been no cases reported at Neighborhood Church, we would like you to know that we are monitoring the progress of this virus and we want to assure you that we are considering and taking precautionary measures to protect and care for our staff, volunteers and all attendees.
