NO WORSHIP MEETINGS
March 15, 2020 – April 5, 2020
Hello church family and friends! Our leadership team was literally on a planning call tonight to work through providing the safest environment for our guests when we received the message from FCPS that all Community Use is cancelled effective March 14 – April 12.
First, the Holy Spirit is real, to have us gather on the call at the very time we receive the message. Secondly, on that note, we adapt and get better with that same divine wisdom for how Life Ticket Church will continue to work the vision during this time.
Our worship meeting for this Sunday, March 15th is cancelled. Our leadership team is meeting to determine how we move forward for weekend meetings after this Sunday. For this Sunday and everyday, still commit yourself to growing spiritually in the word of God and in time with God.
Great news! There has never been a better time for you participate in our Small Groups. We have several groups meeting this week to include Sunday evenings, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. We have groups for teens, adults, couples, Bible study groups, and for men.
To address the growing concerns over public gatherings and the spread of the Coronavirus in our community, please hear me: I don’t take lightly what is happening, this situation has created an atmosphere of panic and concern that has affected everything from air travel to toilet paper; from the Dow Jones to hand sanitizer.
I will not live in fear. I will not stop living my life. I will not stop ministry.
I will not stop greeting my brothers and sisters in Christ with a handshake and a hug, however, I encourage you to do what makes you feel the most comfortable during this time.
We should be courteous in this area regardless of the Coronavirus.
The Church is the Ecclesia – the “assembly” or “gathering” of God’s people. It is my commitment that we will continue to gather publicly and worship together once we determine location(s). With all that said, God has also gifted us with a brain, so let’s use it! If you are sick, use wisdom and stay home to avoid getting others sick and watch our services online at Life Ticket Church. Important note: call on the elders to pray over you [James 5:14-16]
Church, let’s not panic. Let’s use wisdom. Let’s also wash our hands (a lot).
But let us also continue to meet together and build one another up in the most Holy faith. And that can start with Small Groups! Sign up for Small Groups now email@example.com.
I leave you with this:
“Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty. This I declare about the Lord: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; he is my God, and I trust Him. For He will rescue you from every trap and protect you from deadly disease. He will cover you with his feathers. He will shelter you with His wings. His faithful promises are your armor and protection. Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night, nor the arrow that flies in the day. Do not dread the disease that stalks in the darkness, nor the disaster that strikes at midday. Though a thousand fall at your side, though ten thousand are dying around you, these evils will not touch you. – Psalm 91;1-7 NLT
Better life is in Jesus Christ!
