LifePoint: COVID-19 UPDATE
This week, the governor of Florida declared a state of emergency as a result of COVID-19. His instructions include no large group gatherings in this state. Today, in compliance, we have followed our conference requests to cancel our worship gatherings until further notice:
1. Effective immediately, our worship experience is moving to online-only—which means we will offer our 11:30AM livestream service. This service will be streamed at LifePoint YouTube Channel, www.LifePointcfc.org, LifePoint FaceBook page, and LifePoint app (search LifePoint Jax in your App Store).
2. During this time, we are encouraging all to maintain a sense of community through phone calls, messages, online group Bible study and prayer, and other ways of communication. Gather with friends, keep social distance, but engage in smaller groups than we normally do. We (church) are not the service or a building, we are the community of Christ coming together, and where one or two are gathered, the Holy Spirit is present.
3. Regarding your tithes and offerings, please take advantage of Adventist Giving. If you prefer, you may mail your contribution to 4298 Livingston Rd, Jacksonville, FL 32257.
4. We encourage you to continue following the recommendations from the CDC such as washing your hands for 20 seconds, staying home if you feel sick, covering coughs and sneezes, and cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces.
5. If you are feeling anxiety and insecurity through this time, please feel free to call the church (904) 328-7912. We are trying to limit face-to-face contact in accordance to the recommendation.
6. If you have any ideas of how we could serve the community and/or our church during this time please send me an email (email@example.com) or call (904) 328-7912.
Lastly, remember, God is still present, we can still be the church wherever we are, and while we should be prudent, God has not given us a spirit of fear. Let’s pray, help as we can, and protect the most vulnerable in our community.
