How We are Doing Church Business
Dear Family and Friends;
First, I want to express my deep appreciation and pride before God for each of you that have come to me. concerning the status of regular service in light of what this country and the world is experiencing as a result of the Coronavirus disease and the CoVid-19 which transport it. Like many of you, I would rather be in the house of the Lord, lifting up Jesus in prayer and worship, then be at my desk drafting this letter.
Over the last (3) three, or (4) four months I have been exceedingly encouraged to see the amazing spiritual growth and the transformation of this local body considering the calamity of our not so distant past. And because we are so powerfully, recovering and growing in unity while still maintain our individual diversity, I would do anything to keep the doors of the Sanctuary open.
However, as a result of the Coronavirus, we as a church are experiencing issues, we would never have anticipated only a few short weeks ago. We have already made decisions that have become outdated hours and in some cases minutes after we made them because of announcements from our governor or president. And this has left us no choice but to submit to the powers that be, for the health and safety concerns of our congregation and friends.
Romans 13:1-2 Let everyone submit to the governing authorities, since there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are instituted by God. 2 So then, the one who resists the authority is opposing God’s command, and those who oppose it will bring judgment on themselves.
As a result, we will suspend service at Northeast Assembly of God, 3502 Stanwood Street Philadelphia PA 19136 for all members, regular worshippers, and visitors until our appointed leaders, Mayor, Governor (or President, have informed us that the major danger of contracting the Coronavirus has subsided.
As of the time of the letter Pennsylvania has recorded its first Coronavirus related death and a major hospital in center city Philadelphia has reported staff that have tested positive. In our area, it has been Montgomery County that has been hit the hardest with the virus. And the proximity to Philadelphia is too close for us to take this problem lightly. So then, we like the rest of the country, have Imposed a self-quarantine. We ask that for your personal safety that you consider similar measures for you and your household. Those families that have seniors who are in the most venerable age group should really consider sound safety measures.
