Dear Church Family,
I have served this wonderful church for almost 26 years, and I’ve done so with the realization that I will stand before God accountable for LCC. As I pray and seek God’s will, decisions are never easy, but a responsibility that I accept and take seriously.
I believe that the media - whether intentional or unintentional - has created a state of panic, and many are out of control. I believe even though we’ve experienced many other viruses and diseases, the spread of this virus worldwide seems to be unprecedented. I believe people can carry this virus up to 10 days while experiencing no symptoms. I believe the majority experience mild symptoms, but because of the panic, hospital beds could potentially be full and not available to those who really need them. Personally, I have no fear whatsoever, but I am responsible for many people. Therefore, I’ve been praying and seeking God’s wisdom.
With that being said, I have made the difficult but necessary decision to listen to those who know more about this than I do. If I err, I will err on the side of safety. As of March 16th, all of the weekly activities at LCC will be cancelled until further notice. The only weekly activity that will continue at LCC will be our Tuesday morning prayer meeting that begins at 6:30 am and concludes at 7:05.
Our Sunday morning service at 9:00 am will be live streamed. There will be no evening services until further notice. The pastoral staff will be closely monitoring the situation week to week. If you want to invite a few others to join you in your home for Sunday worship, I think that would be a wonderful idea.
Tithes and offerings are God’s plan for His Church. They allow us to minister locally and globally so please don’t forget to honor our Lord through your giving. You can give by stopping by the church office M-F, 8am-5pm or online by clicking here.
If you have any questions, please call the church office at 336-854-5433 or email us at . Our main line of communication throughout this time will be through church wide emails. Some of you may not receive emails while others of you may have emails may caught in your junk folder that you may need to check. As you get information, please help us to pass along the information to others.
Lastly, we are praying and planning how we as the body of Christ can help others during this difficult time. We want to be prepared and proactive. We are looking at and discussing numerous possibilities to help those who hurting during this time, so join us and let’s be positive in a world that is panicking.
For the King and His Kingdom,
P.S. We must not mistake precaution for fear. Fear is irrational and usually an erratic knee jerk reaction to the unknown. Precaution means taking measured steps based on the best information available in order to protect those that we love. Ultimately, our final
confidence is not in the government or in the medical community, but in God. (See Proverbs 3:5-6)
