- Dear GFLC members and guests,
As a result of the COVID-19 virus, and after very prayerful and careful consideration, we are regretfully canceling all of our services, including Sunday worship, through April 5. We will have and record a service with an empty sanctuary, and place it online in our blog (under the "Resources" tab, above and to the right) by Sunday afternoon, though in future weeks, we might record it earlier so that we can have it online earlier. During this time, we ask that you:
1. Pray for our government leaders that they would come together and make wise decisions to protect the vulnerable and ease the financial burden of those affected by the shutdowns, and
2. Pray for families challenged to take care of their children while one or both parents have to work, and the additional challenges they face of an extended withdrawal from school, preschool, daycare or extended family member care, and
3. Pray for businesses that they might survive, and eventually thrive again after this passes, and
4. Pray for doctors, nurses, and all of those in health care that will be working with patients, as some may fall ill and most will be severely stressed and taxed physically, mentally and spiritually by this working to deal with this disease, and
5. Pray for us, that we may be a light to our community, and share the hope and true love we have in Jesus Christ, and
6. Pray for the infected, regardless if they are symptomatic or not, that they would be healed, and comfort those who suffer loss because of this, and the other viruses causing illness through our country.
"Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you." -Deuteronomy 31:6
