The Church Board has unanimously decided that we will not have Sunday Services for the next two weeks. There will be no services on March 22 and March 29. We will also close the Church Offices until April 1. The Staff will be working from home. We are also suspending all activities at the Church until April 1. We will still be conducting the funeral service for Joyce Clark Wednesday morning (tomorrow), viewing at 9:00 am, service at 10:00 am. We want to continue to love and support this family. We will ensure that all entries and pews will be wiped down and sanitized prior to the service.
As you may know, the CDC and the Federal Coronavirus Task Force have issued guidelines to slow the spread of the Coronavirus. These include avoiding social gatherings in groups of ten or more. The Board, as well as the Church Staff, feel it is important that we do our part in slowing the spread of the virus, and complying with the guidelines recommended by the CDC experts. Our response to the threat is not based on fear, but on love and consideration for our church members and community, and respect for government authorities. We also want to be good stewards of the health resources available, helping to preserve critical health services for those who will need them most. The guidelines also recommend staying home if your sick, staying home if your children are sick, staying home if you are older or have an underlying health condition, not eating or drinking at restaurants or bars, avoiding discretionary travel, not visiting nursing homes or long-term care facilities, practicing social distancing, and practicing good hygiene.
We will be posting our entire service, announcements, worship, and message, on our podcast at 9am on both March 22 and March 29. The podcast can be found on our website or iTunes. Our church website and Facebook page will be updated regularly.
If there is someone you know who does not have internet access, please call them and give them this message and let me know what I can do to assist. Also, if you know anyone who does not know Christ and the peace He gives, please have them call me. I would be honored to speak with them in regards to the salvation message.
As we all know, church is not the building, it is you and I. Although we won't be under the same physical roof, we will all be in one spirit. So we encourage you to not lose heart, but while you are listening to the podcast, engage with us in worship. Whether you are standing or sitting on your couch, set some time aside this Sunday and join us. Just a small word from us to you, Jesus tells us that we will have troubles in this world, it's a guarantee. However, He also promises that we have victory through our faith, because Jesus Christ has overcome the world! (John 16:33) We are facing some uncertain times, but be encouraged to press on knowing that we are overcomers through Christ. Please know that we are praying for you all.

We are a community of people who are in process. We have imperfect messy lives, but we are pursuing and experiencing a transforming relationship with Jesus and with each other. Everybody is welcome here whatever your story, your questions, doubts, or struggles. We’re all about doing life together in community, being intentional about our growth as people and serving one another and our broader community along the way.
We want to invite you to one of our Sunday gatherings to experience our community of Jesus-followers authentically engaging with the God we love!

The Church of the Nazarene is a Great Commission church. We believe that God offers to everyone forgiveness, peace, joy, purpose, love, meaning in life, and the promise of heaven when life is over by entering and experiencing a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ. We are called to take this message to people everywhere.
