An Update On the Coronavirus

In light of global precautions for the COVID-19 Coronavirus, and to ensure we are adhering to the direction of our leading health and government authorities, effective immediately, all regular church activities are postponed until further notice.

The Life Ticket Church leadership team is actively monitoring the COVID-19 Coronavirus developments as it relates to the health and well-being of our members and community.

Join Us on Sunday via Prayer Teams

We will continue to provide updates on this site as it relates to all developments regarding the Coronavirus. We invite you to stay connected by subscribing and joining our free digital platforms.

Our Response Plan:

1) Teaching – We are continuing the teaching series on “New Thinking, New Future” via livestreaming with our focus on healing and wellness with our ears open for what the Holy Spirit is speaking to the churches. Download the mobile app to receive notifications for when the teachings will occur each time and watch past teachings from speakers at Life Ticket Church.
 
2) Free Non-Perishables – We will be the ex caleo (ecclesia). We have learned the original meaning for the word “church” comes from the Greek language which is ex caleo meaning out calling. We will be the church through freely giving non-perishable goods in our local Herndon community on Sunday mornings from 10:30 AM – 12:30 PM. For location and instructions to join us, email us at info@lifeticketchurch.com to request a position on this team.
 
3) Prayer Teams – In addition to our freely giving, we will also meet in person on Sundays with teams of 10 people to pray and prayer walk to cover the communities we serve to include Herndon/Reston, Fairfax County, Prince William County and Loudoun County. Join our leaders as they coordinate meeting locations and times. We will invite Holy Spirit to lead us on mission for where to pray and who to pray for in our community. Email us to join a Prayer Team info@lifeticketchurch.com.
 
4) Tangible Needs – We believe that love must be demonstrated. We have set up a page within the Life Ticket Church CCB (Church Community Builder) for our LTC families to enter needs during this COVID-19 time and also for our LTC family to offer donations to meet these needs. The person with the need and the person donating will together be responsible for coordinating a neutral location to receive the donation. Life Ticket Church will not be coordinating the donation exchange. We recommend a neutral location such as a grocery store, coffee shop, gas station, or other public location.

What You Can Do:

Feed your spirit on a daily basis. Just like you do with eating food, you can’t wait 7 days before you eat a meal (unless you’re fasting). Some people wait 7 days, until Sundays, to be fed spiritually. If we do this with food, we will be malnourished. If we do this, spiritually, we will be spiritually malnourished. We can’t wait 7 days and we must not wait until this social distancing period is over to spend time with God in prayer and in His word. 
 
Life Ticket Church will continue to heed the counsel of public health authorities and take appropriate steps to ensure the health and safety of the community. If you are sick with COVID-19 or suspect you are infected, with the virus that causes COVID-19, follow the steps below to help prevent the disease from spreading.

STEP 1: Stay home except to get medical care
You should restrict activities outside your home, except for getting medical care. Do not go to work, school, or public areas. Avoid using public transportation, ride-sharing, or taxis.

STEP 2: Separate yourself from other people and animals in your home
People: As much as possible, you should stay in a specific room and away from other people in your home. Also, you should use a separate bathroom, if available.
Animals: Do not handle pets or other animals while sick. See COVID-19 and Animals for more information.

STEP 3: Seek medical care right away: Call ahead before visiting your doctor
Call your healthcare provider and tell them that you have or may have COVID-19. This will help the healthcare provider’s office take steps to keep other people from getting infected or exposed.

STEP 4: Wear a face mask
You should wear a face mask when you are around other people (e.g., sharing a room or vehicle) or pets and before you enter a healthcare provider’s office. These steps will help the healthcare provider’s office to keep other people in the office or waiting room from getting infected or exposed. If you are not able to wear a face mask (for example, because it causes trouble breathing), then people who live with you should not stay in the same room with you, or they should wear a face mask if they enter your room.

STEP 5: Cover your coughs and sneezes
Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw used tissues in a lined trash can; immediately wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol, covering all surfaces of your hands and rubbing them together until they feel dry.

STEP 6: Avoid sharing personal household items
You should not share dishes, drinking glasses, cups, eating utensils, towels, or bedding with other people or pets in your home. After using these items, they should be washed thoroughly with soap and water.

STEP 7: Clean your hands often
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol, covering all surfaces of your hands and rubbing them together until they feel dry. Soap and water should be used preferentially if hands are visibly dirty. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

STEP 8: Clean all “high-touch” surfaces every day
High-touch surfaces include counters, tabletops, doorknobs, bathroom fixtures, toilets, phones, keyboards, tablets, and bedside tables. Also, clean any surfaces that may have blood, stool, or body fluids on them. Use a household cleaning spray or wipe, according to the label instructions.

Other Actions to Consider:
Ask your healthcare provider to call the local or state health department. Persons who are placed under active monitoring or facilitated self-monitoring should follow instructions provided by the local health department or occupational health professionals, as appropriate. If you have a medical emergency and need to call 911, notify the dispatch personnel that you have, or are being evaluated for COVID-19. If possible, put on a facemask before emergency medical services arrive.
