Letter to NLCC 3-18-20 from Pastor Tom

Greetings in the Saviors Name!
The elders met yesterday to make a determination about our church services in light of recent information and government health recommendations.  This was not a simple or easy decision to make.  We took into consideration all the available information, recommendations, our walk as Christians as well as our testimony in our town.  With that in mind, we made the following decisions:
*  We are temporarily suspending church services at the church building
*  We will resume services at the church building as soon as the situation allows
*  We will endeavor to complete the setup for live streaming our services until we are able to meet again at the church house.  This will also be something that we will continue to do even after the current situation is resolved.  We will provide any technical help we can so each household can avail themselves of the live stream service.  Our target for this to be available is Sunday, March 29th.
*  We will keep our website as up to date as possible and will have an info page that will come up as soon as you get on the site.
*  The elders will continue to meet and send out further information via email as necessary
This will be a challenging time for everyone as we navigate a set of circumstances that we have not had to deal with in the past.  Hopefully if the Lord wills, this will be of short duration.  So, lets do all we can to honor the Lord, protect those who have the greatest health risk, help our community where we minister and pray without ceasing as the scripture instructs us.
I believe that God has assembled a strong body of believers at NLCC and this is an opportune time to be what he has called us to be as believers.  Let’s be faithful and remember that “God hath not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” 1 Tim 1:7
May God bless you and watch over you as we live for Him.
In His Glorious Name,
Pastor Tom
