Hello North Collins Wesleyan Community! We want you to know that we are praying for you! Covid-19 has brought all of us into an unprecedented situation. We are all stepping into the unknown. Fear of the unknown is often the greatest of all fears, please don't let it control you! Our God is GREATER! Nothing is unknown to Him; there is nothing He isn't prepared for. Our FAITH is greater than our fear. Stay strong in your faith, take a deep breathe, and offer grace to our world in this moment of need.
In John 16:33, Jesus said, "I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world."
Here are some updates about our ministries and services over the next few weeks:
1. Seeking to follow the most recent guidelines of social distancing set by many of our government agencies, we are canceling/postponing all activities and services at the church for at least the next two weeks. Listed at the bottom are all the events impacted. For the weekends of March 21/22 and March 28/29, worship services and videos for children will be posted online each Saturday by 5PM. These will be posted through YouTube and can be found on our Facebook Page, Website, and also sent via email & text message upon request. We don't know how long these steps will need to be taken, but we will continue to offer online services as long as needed. For the weekends of Palm Sunday & Easter Sunday, we are working on holding drive-in, radio, worship services. This will be weather permitting.
2. Know that we are here for you! To keep up contact and connection, and to further build a stream of encouragement, we will be often connecting LIVE on Facebook. You can expect regular moments of greeting and prayer on Wednesdays at 6PM, Saturdays at 5PM, and Sundays at 9AM (plus other random moments of connection).
3. Our office remains open - Tuesdays to Fridays from 9:00AM to 3:00PM. The sanctuary is open and heated during this time. Feel free to stop in for prayer. The church sanctuary will also be open on Saturdays from 5:00PM to 6:30PM and Sundays from 8:30AM to 11:30AM. No services will be held during these times, but those seeking a place to pray will find an environment to do so. We will continue to clean and sanitize the church following the precautions stated in previous posts.
