Our position is that we are to be faithful and not fearful. “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” (2 Timothy 1:7) We would also like to advise our church family to be calm but vigilant as we exercise an abundance of caution in the wake of this international pandemic.
“The Lord bless thee, and keep thee: The Lord make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: The Lord lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.” Numbers 6:24 – 26
