April 2, 2020 | Coronavirus Update

Dear Friends, 

Governor Northam recently extended the coronavirus shutdown in Virginia to June 10.  Out of respect for our government authorities, and to safeguard public health, we will continue streaming our services, and will not hold large group gatherings, until this order has expired.  Please continue to participate in online worship, take advantage of small group opportunities via Zoom, and generally exercise your creativity to stay connected to each other during this season of diminished contact. 

Let’s remain confident that our love in Christ will prove stronger than the challenges of separation.  Paul expressed this to the far-distant Thessalonian church when he said,

 “But now that Timothy has come to us from you, and has brought us the good news of your faith and love and reported that you always remember us kindly and long to see us, as we long to see you – for this reason, brothers, in all our distress and affliction we have been comforted about you through your faith. For now we live, if you are standing fast in the Lord.”  (1 Thess. 3:6-8)

Yours in Christ,

The Elders
