Peace Update on the Coronavirus
From Pastor Courson
Worship Services are Canceled through the End of March
Please read the message below:
When I asked the active Medical Professionals who are members of Peace whether or not they thought it was safe to continue having Worship services with all of the precautions we have put in place, they all responded “No!” After passing this information on to the Elders and Directors (elected leaders) of Peace, the decision was made to cancel all public Worship services through March. The decision will be revisited after that time on whether or not we can begin holding services again in April.
We live by faith, trusting that the Lord is with us and will help face any challenges that may come our way. We also use the wisdom that the Lord gives to us to care for and support one another. We will do all that we can to help, support and serve one another during this difficult time. We also try to work together to help and meet the needs of people around us.
We pray that the medical professionals will remain healthy, that our leaders will have wisdom to discern the right things to do at this time and if it is His will, that God will cause the Coronavirus spread to cease.
