From Pastor Chris:
Dear Second Family,
In light of the coronavirus that is at the forefront of the news and our desire to communicate effectively, I wanted to send you out this communication. As you already know, information is flowing at a rate that is next to impossible to keep up with. We have been in communication with our sister churches, health officials and our school district. In light of the information we have received we believe it is in everyone’s best interest to modify our worship/church schedule. All regularly scheduled activities will be cancelled for this week through March 22. Based on the recommendations from health officials we will not meet corporately on our campus this coming Sunday. We invite you however to worship with us online at home through the medium of Facebook live. You can go to our church website at yoursecondfamily.org. You will find a link to Facebook live on the homepage. Our service time will be our normal time between 10:40am-12:00pm. We will be re-evaluating our church schedule each week so please be on the lookout for information via church website, email, and Facebook.
During this time the church’s ministry will continue and church office hours will remain the same. Your ministry staff remains available to help/serve you any way that we can. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact us. We want to encourage you to continue to be faithful in the giving of your tithes/offerings during this time. You are welcome to bring your tithes/offerings to the church during normal office hours, mail it, or take advantage of our on-line giving platform you can find on our website. Again, if you have any questions feel free to contact any of your staff members.
One last thought. What do we do with all this? The same thing we did before there was a coronavirus: Glorify God! How can we glorify God? Every day is still an opportunity to glorify Him. Enjoy the time you may have with your family. Read the Bible in ways that you may not have before. Pray for one another. It’s interesting that in the early church, after the ascension of Christ, the early church met in their homes. We may not be meeting together like we are used to, but we are meeting together with our families for the glory of God.
Thank you for your understanding,
