OUR ROOF PROJECT IS WELL UNDERWAY!

How should we respond to the pandemic?
Here are some things we must remember;
1. We have no need to be fearful.
Jesus warned that in the last days there would be trouble including pestilences, but He encourages us to "see that we are not troubled". God has made provision for our health and wellbeing and we are fortunate to live in a nation where we have an abundance of resources to assist those in crisis..
2. We must use wisdom.
We should follow the advice of our doctors and medical professionals and protect ourselves and others to help prevent the spread of infectious diseases. Wear a facemask, wash your hands often and use hand sanitizer. If you don't feel well or have the symptoms of a cold or fever see your physician, get treated and stay at home until you recover.
3. We must be moved with compassion.
Jesus set the example in ministering God's love and power to those in need if healing. He was constantly moved with compassion in His ministry. Our first priority should always be the safety and well-being of our families and others. We should take the lead in caring for others, especially those who may be vulnerable in a health related crisis. Check in on your family members and friends, especially the elderly, and make sure they are cared for and have what they need to survive during this time. Let us look after others and make sure that we are part of the solution, not the problem.
Let us be active in applying our faith for our families and those we love. Psalm 91 is a revelation of God's provision for you! Meditate on it and confess it often over your life and family.
Pray for others. A massive outbreak of disease that kills hundreds and thousands of people is certainly not the will of God. If we pray earnestly for our nation and others the tide will change (II Chronicles 7:14).
We are always available to minister God's love and grace to you and help should you may find yourself under attack. Remember, we are all in the same covenant family and Christ has given us victory!
"Foundations" will run for 12 weeks on Wednesdays from 6:30 tp 7:30 PM in the "Coffee Clutch". Participant guides are available at the church.
