Following the recommendation of Bishop Trimble, the leadership is announcing the suspension of Sunday Services and in-house activities through Sunday, April 12, 2020.
We reached this decision to protect everyone who worships with us as we deal with the outbreak of the COVID-19.
We will continue to reassess this decision during the weeks to come and you will continue to receive messages from us. Please share this and all other messages with any church member you might know who doesn’t follow social media.
Please continue to pray for our church, Pray for those who are affected by this virus – those who are ill, the medical professionals treating them, the scientists working on vaccines and cures and the leaders making tough decisions to try and curb the spread of the virus and keep us safe. Pray for those with mental health concerns, as well as those who feel extra lonely during this time –please reach out to anyone you think might be feeling isolated over the next few weeks.
Check on your friends and neighbors. If you know someone who may not have internet access, give them a call and share the information in this email. If this virus spreads through our community as predicted, we can continue to reach out and care for one another through phone calls, emails, and social media.
I will continue to stream messages and devotionals throughout this time.
Need to talk to? DO NOT hesitate to call me at (219)344-8688. Feel free to call the church (219) 683-7803 if you need anything.
Please continue to tithe by mail. As always, the church relies on your tithing and offerings to continue to serve the community. The building may not be use, but there is still upkeep and utilities.
Thank you for your support and understanding as we continue to take the necessary steps to resolve this situation.
Over 100 times, the Bible tells us, “Don’t be afraid.” In Psalm 27:1 David tells us why: The Lord is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid?
