From: Pastor Timothy J. Hopson
I know many of you have concerns as it relates to the current coronavirus/COVID-19 outbreak. I have been closely tracking the progression of the virus in the Central Arkansas area. In the last 24 hours, the number of confirmed cases has climbed to six in the Central Arkansas area. This has called for school closers, large event cancellations, and travel restrictions.
However, city’s leadership and health professionals are allowing groups fewer than 200 people to continue to meet. Out of an abundance of caution, we will contine with our Sunday morning worship services, but will suspend meetings, Wednesday, and Sunday night services for two weeks or until advised otherwise from city and/or state governmental officials.
The CDC recommend avoiding close contact so we will limit our hugs and handshakes during the greetings and closing of our services.
Please know that I take very seriously your physical health as much as your spiritual health and will do what is necessary for you to remain safe and healthy during this season.
Please continue to pray for our world, our leaders, and health professionals, as well each other. And, if we must post information on social media, let us spread the Good news of JESUS and to TRUST in him during this time.
