Dear Solid Rock Christian Center Congregation,
Blessings to you on this day. I want to communicate the decisions our Solid Rock Leadership Team have made in compliance with the Center for Disease Control and our state and federal elected officials.
Sunday, the CDC modified its recommendations and urged all of us to avoid gatherings of over 50 people. On Monday, the President encouraged all of us to extend this to gatherings in excess of 10 people.
As a result of this, for the safety of everyone, we are canceling all ministry events, LABS, activities, and groups of any size for the next eight weeks.
These are difficult decisions. We realize for some, the fact that we are no longer gathering as a congregation has the potential for creating greater anxiety. We want to assure you this does not mean our ministry to you, as a member of our congregation, has been put on hold.
For Sunday services over the next eight weeks, our ministry team will be providing a live stream sermon, available to you each Sunday morning at 10am. This is an opportunity for our congregation to come together in even greater unity. This live stream sermon will be available live on our Facebook page, and you will also be able to view it later on our SRCC website and YouTube site.
We will be reaching out to you. We will be praying for you, and you can even send us specific prayer requests by calling 719-393-7625 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. And, rest assured, we will continue to communicate with you via email as the situation develops.
Let us continue to pray for those who work in health care, who are experiencing significant economic challenges, who now have challenging lives due to layoffs, school closings and so much more. As a church, we are looking for ways to continue to care for our congregation and our community, to include those who live alone, those who may have limited access to resources and those who cannot work from home.
Though there is uncertainty all around us, we are people of faith. God is still in control. I encourage you with the following scriptures:
Deuteronomy 31:8 Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord will personally go ahead of you. He will be with you; He will neither fail you nor abandon you.
Isaiah 43:2 When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you.
During this time, I ask that you continue giving of your faithful tithes and offerings through PayPal, Givelify or mail to Solid Rock Christian Church, 2520 Arlington Dr. 80910; or you can drop off your tithes and offerings at the church mailbox Monday-Friday from 8am-5pm. Please do not leave donations in the mailbox on weekends or after 5 pm on weekdays.
Please feel free to email @ email@example.com if you have any questions or concerns and we will get back to you.
Blessings and good health to you all,
Pastors Ben and Wanda Anderson
