As threats of COVID-19 (coronavirus) become more evident, we desire to respond in faith and responsibility. Like you, we share your concerns and want to what is best for both the physical and spiritual well-being of all. We recognize the important role our church plays not only in our lives but throughout our Cabot community. The health and well-being of our members and guests is always our priority, and as we navigate the rapidly evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) situation together, I want to share with you our plan.
First and foremost, please pray! As believers, we should be in prayer for the healing of those affected, for the medical community as they treat and tirelessly care for the sick, and for people to come to Christ even through this situation. Satan, as the author of lies, aims to cause fear, confusion, and chaos. God brings hope and faith. I pray our church family can encourage others and be agents of His peace during this time.
While we are aware of the concerns, we plan to follow our normal morning schedule this Sunday. In times of trouble we seek the heart and help of our great God. While we plan to meet this Sunday, we have taken practical precautions that we’d like you to be aware of:
- Our facilities are cleaned regularly, but we are taking extra measures to wipe down surfaces continually and clean at an even deeper level.
- In addition to hand soap being available in the bathrooms, we have a supply of alcohol-based hand sanitizers available for use at every location.
- We are filtering and ultraviolet treating the air in our building.
- We are monitoring the communication and recommendations from state and local government agencies.
As you consider your response here are a few things we would ask you to follow:
- We are a relational church, but during this time we encourage “elbow to elbow” greetings and waving while in church. Have fun with it!
- If possible, avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Stay home if you are not feeling well.
- Cover your mouth and nose with your forearm when coughing or sneezing.
- Wash your hands with soap frequently, for at least 20 seconds at a time.
- If no soap and water are available, use alcohol-based hand sanitizer with 60% or more of alcohol.
We will continue to update information as needed regarding
our schedule and other adopted recommendations from government officials.
Thank you so much for helping us serve our church family and community by taking these necessary precautions. We are so grateful for the Lord’s work through our church and look forward to worshiping with you Sunday. Let's lean into the Lord as we walk through this together! He is good and He is our hope.
Grace to you,
“For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” 2 Timothy 1:7
