A WORD ON (COVID-19) FROM IMPACT
Things are changing by the day with COVID-19 Pandemic, and we’re changing right along with it to help be part of the solution. With families in our community expected to be economically and emotionally impacted we are preparing to mobilize and partner with local food banks, schools, and organizations to maximize the efforts to serve others.
Many of you have expressed a desire to help, reminding us yet again why we love being part of the local church with you. As safe outreach opportunities arise, we’ll let you know. In the meantime, here are practical steps you can take starting today:
Pray: Prayer is our first response, not our last resort. We’re comforted and empowered knowing we serve a miracle-working God who is an ever-present help in times of trouble (Psalm 46:1). Ask the Holy Spirit to open your eyes and to show you how to pray for those on the front lines, at high risk, and in great need.
Prevent: The good news is that we’re able to impact the spread of the virus by taking simple measures like washing our hands regularly, distancing ourselves physically, and being especially cautious around those at high risk (the elderly and immunocompromised). These steps are proven to make a difference, and each of us can play a role, set an example, and spread the message.
Give: You’re a generous church, and we operate our finances in a way that allows us to give without hesitation in times of need and crisis. That’s exactly what we’re doing now and will continue to do. If you feel led to financially be part of our efforts to serve during COVID-19, you may give here.

While we exercise wisdom in keeping ourselves and our loved ones safe, we know that divine health and protection is from Jesus. Let’s continue to trust in His promises of protection in Psalm 91 for ourselves, our families, and all those who are affected by illness and pray that the virus will be contained and conquered.
Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge, even the Most High, your dwelling place, no evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come near your dwelling.
