COVID-19 UPDATE

Holy Week
4-7-2020

 
This is Pastor!
 
Vickie and I love you, and we’re praying for you. We are one awesome army! Thank God you’ve been taught very well. Though we don’t like it, we are prepared for such a time as this. I know in my heart that when this is all said and done, we will somehow be wiser, stronger, and more aggressive to help other people. 
 
This is Holy Week! I am including our schedule for the week below. As I mentioned on Palm Sunday during our announcements, we have begun the walk with Christ, from His triumphal entry all the way to His ascension. I advise you to find this account in Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, and then do everything you can to share this with relatives, friends, and family members. 
 
I want to remind you that though we are “temporarily” not meeting in the sanctuary, we are as much Christians as we have ever been.
 
So far, we are planning a Good Friday communion service at 12 noon in the parking lot, and again on Easter Sunday morning (without communion). Both will be streamed as well. Please find your instructions to participate at the link below. 
 
Do your very best to stay strong and healthy, obey the rules, and attack this horrible invisible enemy. I’m claiming that no one in our church family will suffer any negative effect from this enemy, except for fighting it!

FINANCIAL UPDATE

 
At this point in time, we are still in the black as a ministry, which means you have done well standing with us with your tithe, offerings, and building program money. Thank you so much for keeping the ministry strong and moving forward. Know this—the Scriptures are true, and God will honor your tithe and multiply your seed sown. I know some are laid off or facing the possibility of being laid off. Even more reason for us to lean on the Scriptures and trust God. He will come through for every one of us. Fear not!
 
 

HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENTS

 
Psalm 23
Continue to stand on this passage and quote it aloud daily:
  • “The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.”
 
Pray to God @ 12 Noon... Then Curse Covid-19!
Pray for God’s mercy and ask Him to heal our land and everyone who has been affected by this virus in any negative way whatsoever. Then turn to the ground and all around you and curse the Covid-19 virus to die immediately, and bind the demon connected to it.
 
Witness & Minister to Others
Post on social media, wear your “Fear Is a Liar!” shirts, write messages outside on your fence—do whatever you can do to be a bright light and spread strength and hope in this dark time.

“New” Tithing Profession for Streaming
 
Lord, I am standing with Pastor under Your name and Your authority, and nothing by any means shall hurt me. We curse this virus and this plague. I am presenting my tithe and offering to you now, and I will use any means available to me to make sure that I am covered by the tithing profession and the tithing rules. I will continue to sow in Your name to keep Your church alive. No enemy will be able to hurt us whatsoever. Please receive my tithes and offerings now, and bless me accordingly, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
