COVID-19 UPDATE
3-18-2020


This is Pastor.
 
I am praying for each and every one of you and your family. We are praying that this falls to the ground rapidly. Use your prayer life to call out to God. Use your mouth to curse COVID-19 and curse the demon behind all the leadership mismanagement, overreach, and confusion. Vickie and I are standing with you, and so is the team here. Our offices are open, and we will do our best to stay close to you and keep supplying you with prayer, the Word of God, and anything else we can do to minister to you.
 
Do not let this destroy our church or your family! Keep the faith! This is the devil ultimately mocking God, and China getting even with the United States. We will win! I will keep communicating by ONE CALL, e-mail, and as many electronic options as I possibly can.
 
WE SHOULD BE PRAYING OVER MATTERS LIKE THIS

THIS MIGHT CLEAR UP SOME RUMORS FOR YOU

THANK YOU FOR YOUR COOPERATION

To comply with the current maximum capacity restrictions for public gatherings, the team who will be present in the sanctuary to assist with our live-streamed services is being carefully counted and monitored. If you have not been specifically asked to be present, you are not included on our count list and we ask for your understanding and cooperation by joining us via live stream. If you have been asked to be present, please do not bring additional family members, children, etc., which could place us at risk of violating this mandate. 
 

FYI

At this time, we are planning, preparing, and communicating with full faith and intention that all advertised events, activities, and conferences will remain confirmed and take place as scheduled, with the understanding that adjustments may become necessary and will be communicated.
 

LWC “LIVE-STREAM ONLY” PRAYER & SERVICE SCHEDULE

At this time, we will be live-streaming only and no longer holding church services inside our sanctuary. These streamed services will be live (not pre-recorded) and very much as if you are here attending our normal church services. You will see our worship team, certain key leaders and security personnel, and possibly media team and others needed to run the service. We will continue to provide approved announcements from the pulpit, and you will continue to receive an e-mail version of the bulletin; so please make sure you review that and stay current with what’s happening. (We will not be printing hard copies until further notice.)

TITHING & GIVING OPTIONS 

We’re trying to make it as easy as possible, with every avenue possible, for you to protect yourself by presenting your tithe and offerings. 
  • You can give by e-check or credit/debit card. Text LWCGIVE to 77977 to get started.
  • Call the financial department to give by debit card.
  • Use the Donate tab on our website. 
  • Mail it.
  • Drop it off at the church office: 
    For those who cannot tithe or give electronically, we have placed a secure lockbox at the entrance of the current administrative building. Use this box to present your tithes and offerings, submit prayer requests, or to communicate directly to me.
When you do tithe and give, whether it’s while streaming, before you mail it or call it in or give any other way, please remember to make your tithing profession:
 

LIVING WORD CHURCH
Tithing Profession

Lord, I have come to THIS HOUSE, Your house, to honor You and worship You with YOUR TITHE and my offering.

I have removed the SACRED TITHE from MY HOUSE and am presenting it to You now, according to Your Word.

I was once in bondage to sin, satan, poverty, and the curse; but now, thanks to You, Lord, I am free!

I realize that my tithe and offerings will be used to build Your kingdom, our church, and reach the unreached and tell the untold.

Now, I pray that you would bless me and my family to be debt free, disease free, sin free, and struggle free, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
  1. I want to remind you that we walk by faith and not by sight and not by fear.
     
  2. Please do not base your actions and decisions according to all the rumors by those who say they heard something from someone who supposedly knows a secret about something.
     
  3. Do not live by conspiracy theories.
     
  4. Let’s remember that Jesus said there is enough evil to deal with today and not to be overly concerned about tomorrow (Eccl. 11). Let’s take this a day at a time.
     
  5. Be aware that our president and others are offering “suggestions” and “recommendations.” Follow them if you choose to; however, there is a major difference between that and when something is defined as a “ban” or “mandatory,” which would mean we are breaking the law if we do not comply. That is the balancing act I’m using to run our ministry globally.
     
  6. I want to remind you that we must do the following:
    • Pray for the wisdom of God for those in leadership, whether they serve God or not.
    • Curse COVID-19.
    • Curse the demon that is trying to tear our country apart financially.
    • We must continue to serve God.
    • I call you to prayer.
    • Confess life, not death.

P.S.
Tonight, I addressed our online community once again through Facebook and Instagram with a message of hope and clarity. We had SO many questions come in, but I was able to get to most of them! You can watch the full replay on Facebook by clicking on the image below.
