We also understand that many families are experiencing financial challenges in these uncertain times.  We encourage these individuals to utilize our FWC food pantry to help ease the strain.  We are open M-Th from 1 pm – 4 pm.

HERE’S WHAT WE’RE DOING AS A CHURCH STAFF

 

TRUSTING GOD

Viral disease is a fact of biological existence and part of creation. Keeping perspective and not panicking apply here, just as they do for all risks we face as creatures in a finite world. No matter how dire circumstances get, the Lord remains our refuge and strength, “an ever-present help in trouble” (Ps. 46:1). To trust in the Lord amid trouble is to experience and bear witness to the power of Christ.

PRAYING

We must pray for the sick and the scared, for public health officials, for doctors and nurses, for researchers, and caregivers. As Christians, we believe prayer has power, so we seek help from the Lord.

PREPARING

Because COVID-19 likely spreads like the cold and flu, personal hygiene is very important for all ages. We’re also doing the following:

We are meeting regularly to review all of our efforts in response to COVID-19.

We’re staying informed of community updates.

We’re reviewing all of our communication practices with our church family and implementing appropriate communication when appropriate – like this webpage, Facebook, and through our emailed church newsletter (please check your junk folder as we are using a new service to send out a more extensive and visual email. Look for anything from info@fwcpo.org)

 

HERE’S WHAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP

Pray for our community and those directly affected by COVID-19. Pray for the health care workers that are treating the sick and those public health administrators making difficult decisions. Pray that God would protect our community from further spread of the virus.

Reflect Christ. In these anxious days, the church (all of us) can shine as a light of hope, care, faith, patience, and prudence. We can demonstrate for the world how our faith provides true assurance against worry and fear.

Practice recommended personal hygiene. Wash your hands frequently. Avoid contact with the sick. Stay home from public functions if you’re sick. Enjoy church online.

Our offices are open Monday-Thursday from 9 am-5 pm for any non-perishable Food Pantry donations.

Because of your generosity and support, we are able to continue helping our community and hosting our worship services online – for all ages. To continue giving online, click here.

Thank you for being such a giving church!
