OVCF’s Response to the Coronavirus
It seems what is uppermost in most people’s minds and speech these days is the Coronavirus (COVID-19). As leaders of OVCF, we thought it wise to make our voice known and how we will respond as a church to this crisis.
How should Christ-followers respond to the Coronavirus?
Before we state our response as a church gathering to worship, we feel it is important to state how and where we stand spiritually to this crisis. Several facts are in play:
So, what are we to do as followers of Christ? How should we respond? As leaders of OVCF, we would like to tell you our plan for moving forward.
Faith not panic.
Our mantra is “Faith not fear; praise not panic.” We have heard it stated that F.E.A.R. can stand for either Fear Everything And Run or Face Everything And Rise. We choose to take the latter route. Since God is in control we have nothing to fear. The Scripture is clear when it says, “Cast all your anxieties (fear) on him, because he cares for you.” I Peter 5:6 (ESV) Peter goes on to tell us to “Be sober-minded; be watchful.” We should not take this crisis lightly, nor with a cavalier attitude, but at the same time neither should we be hunkering down in fear.
Psalm 20:7 is a great verse to keep in front of you and memorize: “Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.” (ESV)
What are the church’s plans as we move forward from here?
While many in our church fellowship would fall under the “mild” category for getting the virus, there are those who are in the “extreme” risk, those for whom the virus is a main concern. So we would like to outline our plan for moving forward:
Please join us:
Please remember public safety for yourself & others:
Let us know how we can pray for you.
