3-13-20 Update from Pastor Daryl

Hello SonRise,
 As many of you have heard I and our leadership made the painful decision yesterday to cancel our public worship gatherings for this coming weekend Sunday March 15th. Though some may not agree or understand why the President and our Governor are taking such drastic and unprecedented measures, we should consider a few things. First, we do not have access to the intel or global information sources that they have.  Second, when the measures being taken are protective in nature we must stop being suspect. Romans 13:1 states “Everyone must submit to governing authorities. For all authority comes from God, and those in positions of authority have been placed there by God.”
    As leaders who feel a sense of responsibility for the people God has placed in our church and have a desire to protect and prevent any harm from befalling them, we made the decision to submit to our Governor’s ban on any gatherings over 250.  As previously announced, we will offer a live stream service at 10:30 for worship, prayer, and encouragement.  You will be able to participate in your home or you might consider gathering with family or your life Group to worship together if you choose. This is the time for God’s people to walk by faith and to be a people of joy and peace. Our hope, our security, our protection comes from God. Therefore we have nothing to fear. It is important that we do a few things during this time.
  1.  Remain connected to one another through Life Group or Small group networks.  Care for and look out for one another.  The decision to Meet in your homes for life group is your decision. However we must remain connected.
  2. Remain in God’s Word as it reminds us of our source of Hope and Promise. Our current series is called Corrective Lenses. We are taking about the need to have God’s help to rightly see and understand how to navigate this life in accordance with God’s will. One of those ways is certainly God’s Word.
  3. Remain faithful to give God your worship through praise and prayer.  We need to be devoted to praising our God even in times like this and we should be lifting our community up in prayer as well as all who have been or may be affected by this virus.
  4. We must also continue to worship God through our tithes and offerings. Even though we aren't having a public worship service this Sunday, we continue to be the Church, and continue our work in or community. Beyond our normal activities, we are also moving to meet new needs that are arising with the school closings. (We will update you will opportunities to serve as we know more) In the absence of a Sunday service you can continue your giving electronically through our app, website, or you can bring your tithes by the office Monday through Thursday from 9-4.  The church needs the people God has called to be the body to remain faithful so that the church does not have to make even more painful decisions to manage this challenge.
  5. Share with others around you. Now is not the time to hoard or stockpile, but a time to live openhanded because we know God is our source. It is a time to love our neighbors and be generous to them as we seek to shine brightly in our communities. Our food ministries are prepared and will be looking to minister to anyone in need.  They have already begun and are in the process of making plans to distribute food in our community.
We will continually assess the status of this health threat and how we can best help and best protect and serve one another and our community.  Thanks for being the people of God.  You all are in my prayers.
Sincerely Yours, Eternally His,
Pastor Daryl

    Looking forward to our worship service this morning! Preparing my tithe to give electronically, as if I were sitting in the sanctuary. Praying for all of us to weather this well, giving God all the glory. Let’s continue to reach out to one another and the neighbors in our own community! Love you all! God has got this and we his people.
    I lift up my eyes to the hills, where does my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, the maker of heaven and earth. Psalm 121 :1~2
