COVID-19 Update #1
Updated: Mar 19
I know that you are keenly aware of the impact that COVID-19 (coronavirus) is having. Community Church has decided to implement the following precautions. We believe that for now these precautions are prudent.
Please read the letter thoroughly.
For now, we will still hold our regular worship services this Sunday at 1400 Numa Rd. We invite you to continue gathering with us as you feel comfortable to do so. However, we will not offer nursery, children’s classes, teen class, or the DIG class.
This week we will try to live stream the worship service via Facebook. However, it is our first attempt at this and we are doing it last minute. The sound and/or quality may be lacking. Should you choose to stay home, please stay connected.
For those not on Facebook, the sermon podcast and video will be available ASAP on Sunday.
We are suspending all ministries and events next week. Please cancel your home groups until you hear further from us. We will send updates as we know more.
Please refrain from shaking hands and/or hugging. For now, a friendly smile and a verbal greeting will suffice.
The baptism scheduled for this Sunday (3/15) is postponed until further notice.
At this time we will not be offering communion during worship, but as always the altar will be open for prayer.
We will not be serving coffee for the time being. Please feel free to bring your own.
The offering baskets will not be passed, but you can drop your offering in a basket as you enter or leave the sanctuary. If you don’t already, begin online giving. Go to www.communitychurchofsusanville.com/give and follow the prompts. If you choose not to attend worship, we appreciate your continued support.
If you have a health issues or a compromised immune system, we kindly ask that you guard your health by staying home for now.
Take seriously the precautions that have been widely publicized.
We’re not in control of anything. So it’s a great time to share about the One who is in control of all things!
Under react and dismiss this concern as “overblown”.
Overreact and respond in fear or anxiety.
Be critical of others who are responding differently than you.
I do pray that God intervenes. Do your best to stay healthy and safe. Let’s be “salt and light” during this uncertain time and share our hope and faith in Jesus as the opportunity arises. I trust this will be short lived and we’ll all be back together soon.
