Dear Family and Friends of Community,
In an abundance of caution, we decided to close all our church buildings for the short term. Our buildings will remain closed at least through next week. We will reevaluate our closure every week based on the conditions at that moment. We do not want to predict when it will be safe to gather together in person again. However, when that day comes, we will thank God and celebrate together.
Over the centuries, Christians faced many challenges: persecutions, plagues and pestilence. Our spiritual ancestors were not spared from these trials. Even those with great faith struggled but they never lost hope. We encourage you to have hope! Jesus is walking with us in this time!
Although, our buildings are closed, we will not stop doing ministry together or being united in faith! Never forget: “You are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.” 1 Corinthians 12:27
At the office, we are working on staying connected to you. We are busy planning worship for this coming weekend as well as our Wednesday Lenten worship and even Bible study which will all be streamed live on our website and on our Facebook page. We will also check in with you every day using this same wonderful technology!
We are also working on ways to connect with the children and youth of CLC as well as our normal workload.
Some of you are already asking us, “What can we do?” The answer is simple: Stay in touch with each other! If there is someone you know at church, please reach out to them and see how they are doing. This could be as simple as an email or even better yet a phone call. Do not socially isolate yourself right now! (We encourage everyone to physically isolate themselves.) Please remember, not everyone uses social media and may be very lonely at this point.
Let us ask you, “What 10 people from CLC are you going to stay in touch with?”
We will also make DVDs of one of our worship services to distribute if you know someone who does not use a computer or smartphone. Please let us know!
Some of you have offered to run errands for those who need to stay home. If you have the time and willingness to safely help others at CLC in different ways, please send us an email at or give us call at the office (702-458-2241). We will be creating a resource list to help our members and others.
Although some of us will be working in the office we ask that you do not stop by. Please call or email us. We want to keep everyone safe.
In the meantime, pray. Pray for the world, pray for quick resolution to this pandemic, and pray for our church.
We give thanks for your faithfulness and your love. It is your kindness that gives us the strength to lead in this most unusual time.
Jesus will see us through as we wash our hands often and give others a wide berth in this moment of time.
Do not hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions!
If the recent events have not affected you financially, we humbly ask that you continue to give to CLC as our expenses continue through this difficult time. Whether you give online or mail in your offering, we deeply appreciate your dedication to our church.
God bless you all,
Pr. Ben and Pr. Brian
