From Pastor Charlie:
In all the years that the Lord has allowed me to be a pastor, I have never been faced with a situation like we have in our country right now. In the last four days, we have received much information about the corona virus from President Trump, Governor Kemp, and many other leaders in our community and country. We have been asked to limit our close contact with each other until the virus can be brought under control. At first we were told to not gather in groups of more than 200, and then it was 100, now it’s 10. With this in mind, your pastor and deacons met this past Sunday afternoon to discuss what we should do as a church during this time of crisis. At the time of our meeting we did not know that the Screven County schools would be canceled as well as all the schools in Georgia for the next two weeks. Our deacons decided to let the chairman of deacons, vice chairman, and the pastor, decide what we need to do as a church.
I realize some would say we as Christians don’t live by fear but by faith. Three times in the New Testament we read “the just shall live by faith.” We are to live by faith but not foolishly. Ephesians 5:15 tells us, “See then that ye walk circumspectly, (don’t take risk) not as fools, but as wise.” With this in mind, in order to protect our people, we believe that we should cancel our services until further notice beginning this Sunday, March 22, 2020. This week’s prayer meeting will meet at the regular time. I would ask that we not sit next to one another but spread out throughout the worship center. We will broadcast our Sunday morning service on Facebook without an audience. I realize that some will not agree with this decision, but it is better to err on the side of caution. If someone in our church caught this virus, I would find it hard to forgive myself.
I love you all,
Pastor Charlie
