The LifePoint Ministries Executive Council met (via internet) last night to pray for you and to discuss the pandemic crisis of the Coronavirus. We realize that you are having to make decisions to cancel or postpone your church services.
While every situation looks different, we have provided you resources below that can help you determine the best steps to take in serving your community. I encourage you to spend time in prayer, evaluate your situation, and look for creative ways to minister to your congregation. I also suggest that you follow the recommended guidelines set by local, state, and national governments. If you are struggling with the situation or making decisions, I am available by phone to discuss this with you. It is during these times that we can be at our best, if we seek and follow God’s purposes and plan. This is our opportunity to step up and serve with excellence. The need is great, and the harvest is ready!
“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, of love and of a sound mind.” – 2 Timothy 1:7
