Revised Meeting Times
A NOTE FROM THE ELDERS (Updated 4/9/20):
These are increasingly difficult times with increasing concerns about the coronavirus and COVID-19. Your shepherds are still having conversations about the wisest and best course for our congregation. The following information reflects our thoughts and decisions for the group.
Last week (3/31) Governor Abbott declared worship services an "Essential Business" in Texas. That means by law we are allowed to assemble for worship. While we are thankful for this opportunity, we believe it is prudent to proceed with caution in the coming days. As your shepherds we have decided we must continue meeting as a church online through the end of April. We will reevaluate the situation and prayerfully make a decision regarding our assemblies at that point in time.
We are asking all members to stay at home when possible and avoid group contact, especially those who are elderly. We have several volunteers who will shop and deliver groceries, medications, etc. to your door. We will attempt to make short lessons available through on-line video/audio. You may also, if possible, live-stream worship. There are several congregation in the area we recommend. They are:
- Castleberry church of Christ (castleberrychurch.com)
- The church of Christ at Westside in Irving (justchristians.com)
- Campbell Road church of Christ (thebibleway.com)
- West Main church of Christ (westmainchurchofchrist.org)
Beginning this Sunday we will be taking communion together, via a GoToMeeting. We will end class at 10:10 and then begin a short LS devotion at 10:15 PM with prayer and communion immediately after each prayer. We have individual, prepackaged Lord’s Supper bread and cups at the building If you need us to bring these items to you please give one of the elders or deacons a call and we will make arrangements to do so.
If you have any concerns about this course of action, please do not hesitate to contact one of the Elders. Thank you for understanding and working with us in these matters. We appreciate your kind spirit and cooperation. Please pray for those who are directly affected by the virus and for doctors and scientists searching for ways to confront it.
Beloved, we hate this as much as you do. Keep the faith, be strong and courageous, and help one another stay well both physically and spiritually.
