FROM THE PASTOR'S DESK
Greetings FCF Family and friends!
I pray this posting finds you all doing well and are healthy; ALWAYS trusting in the LORD our Savior Christ Jesus.
These are some strange and uncertain times we are living in and while we do not know what the future may hold, we Know GOD holds the Future.
I personally think that fact makes this an exciting time to be alive; even considering all we are currently going through, we KNOW that God Is Not Dead He Is Surely Alive!
Here are some encouraging words written in the book of Isaiah 41:9-10 (NKJV) the Lord God has said,
'You are My servant, I have chosen you and have not cast you away:
Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand."
It has been good to talk to many of you on the phone this week. I know it is not the most personal or preferred way to connect, but I want to thank you all who have been responsive to the text messages I have been sending out. Your input, thoughts, concerns, and suggestions have been most appreciated.
As I am sure all of us are aware, our state and federal authorities, along with the C.D.C. have now mandated that a stay at home order is in effect for EVERYONE until the end of April.
Therefore, we as compliant citizens, and for the wellbeing of everyone at F.C.F. along with the other churches that meet at 319 Deacon Road,
We will be canceling ALL EVENTS for the remainder of the month of April.
The services and events cancelled include:
- Sunday School classes.
- Wednesday night Bible Study.
- All Iglesias Services.
- C.F.B.C. Services.
The ONLY time the building will be open for public access is: (SANCTUARY ONLY)
Sunday Mornings : 11:00 am - 12:00 pm.
Wednesday Evenings: 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm.
For Prayer time (Only)
THIS IS NOT A VIOLATION OF THE STAY AT HOME ORDER!!
The doors will be open on Sunday Mornings and Wednesday evening, for any and all who feel led by the Holy Spirit to come and Pray for Healing in our Nation,; Prayer for the Leaders of this nation and countries around the World. Prayer for medical staff and protection over them as they treat those with this illness and prayer that a Cure may be found for this Virus and for those affected by it. Always pray for our Loved ones who need a to know the LORD our GOD is the REAL and ONLY TRUE GOD!
Let me repeat for those of you who may feel this is not the proper course of action for the church to take or fear you will be in violation of the law… THIS IS NOT A VIOLATION OF THE STAY AT HOME ORDER!!
