This weekend, in response to growing
concerns over coronavirus (COVID-19), Governor Roy Cooper gave an Executive
Order indefinitely banning any gathering
of more than 100 people. The CDC later issued a similar statement, limiting
groups to 50. And just yesterday, a Presidential order recommended group sizes
no larger than 10.
In the interest of public safety, and as a display of love of neighbor, Christ
Covenant Church is making the following decisions and recommendations:
Community Group Gatherings
In light of the recent presidential recommendation to limit groups to no more
than 10 people, Community Groups should refrain from meeting in
person until further notice.
During our Community Group pause, we still want you to be well-equipped. We are
working on ways to wrap up our study of Deuteronomy and continue
practicing community (even remotely).
NO Gatherings Until the Lifting of the Executive Order
We will not meet for worship at our campus, this Sunday, March 22. In addition
to Sunday, Wednesday night prayer gathering and C3 Youth activities will be
suspended March 18. We anticipate this ban will affect future Sunday morning
and Wednesday night gatherings as well. Until we communicate otherwise, CCC is
not meeting corporately on our campus.
However, for as long as the Executive Order is in effect, we will operate as we
did this past weekend—live streaming our worship service, which will begin
Sunday morning at 10:45 a.m. on YouTube. You can access the
service on our FaceBook page and Website. The recording
will be available for playback through Sunday night. From Monday on, you can
access the sermon on YouTube, our website, and ApplePodcast.
other official CCC events scheduled between today and the lifting of the
governor’s Executive Order will not be meeting as scheduled. We will assess, in
due time, whether we can reschedule these events.
Sunday, John lead us to pray for wisdom in responding to our current
circumstances. While we will continue to take wise precautions (as mentioned
above, canceling our gatherings), we also recognize that we have a
responsibility to be the hands and feet of Christ, caring for the sick and the
vulnerable in times of great need. We are working on ways we can, as a body,
serve our neighbors during this time. Our ministry team will let you know about
those opportunities as soon as we are able.
The Gospel Coalition has an excellent article with an encouragement to believers
in how we are to respond to this pandemic. “Responding to Pandemics: 4 Lessons from Church History.”
We recognize that this is a dynamic situation with constant new information and
updates. While we do not know when we will begin operating according to a
normal schedule, we will continue to communicate updates on social media, via
email, and our website.
Our elders, staff, and community group leaders are always here to serve our
church family. Please let us know if you need help during this time.
