Coronavirus Update 03.18.20
Lifehouse Cancellation Statement
This is a follow up from the statement I sent yesterday concerning the precautions Lifehouse Church will be taking to conform to the Federal and State level request to not have any public gatherings over ten people until March 31, 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Trustees and Elders met last night and we all agreed that even though this request is not a law bearing mandate it is still our civic and ethical duty to respect the request of our elected officials. Therefore, Lifehouse Church will not be meeting at our church facility for any functions greater than ten people until March 31, 2020.
Lifehouse Church has begun to plan strategies to provide you and your family with spiritual leadership in order to encourage you in faith during this unprecedented crisis this world is facing. We will be using several web based platforms to keep this church connected in faith. We are working to utilize the “Zoom” platform for Wednesday evening prayer time and Bible study. We will be sending out a link later today if you desire to be apart of this interactive prayer time. Since this is a new strategy if we can't get "Zoom" interactive platform to work tonight we will be live streaming the teaching. This will begin at our normal time of 6:30pm.
On Sunday, we will be streaming live from our facility the normal church service at 10:30 am. Our intention is to have a worship set and I will be teaching a live sermon to give you encouragement in your faith. I do encourage you to HOST a Lifehouse watch party of ten people or under. A watch party is when you invite a few other families to your home and have a “home church” together. If this public meeting guideline last longer than this week Lifehouse will develop a structure to assist you in promotion of your watch party or to find a watch party. To HOST a party means to: H - have a heart for people, O - open your home to people, S - serve a snack, T - turn on the TV. It can't be anymore simple than that so please consider inviting people to your watch party.
Remember as I shared on Sunday that the local church is the Hope of the World. The world will need to see an authentic church in these uncertain times. We are called to be a people that can face tribulation with peace and good cheer because we know Jesus has overcome any crisis in this world. If you know of people that are living in fear this is an amazing time to reach out and invite them to your watch party.
Again, we will be sending out more information to our live links to any of our services so you can stay connected to the Lifehouse body. Please remain committed to this church in prayer, encouraging one another and your financial commitment so on the other side of this crisis we will have a place to once again meet to worship Jesus Christ.
Be safe and be led by the Holy Spirit.
I have some suggestions on how to set up and reach new attendees to a LifeHouse Host Church.
As a new devoted attendee I desire a time to assemble with others in LifeHouse but do not know how to go about this.
My suggestion would allow us to recruit others as well as gather with our LifeHouse family.
Please call me so I may share the idea that God has placed in my heart.
