Fame Evangelical Church
Pastor Tom called for a special Elder's meeting March 19th to both pray over and discuss our response as a church to the COVID-19 event.
We took note of these issues.
- We are subject to the governing authority (Rom 13:1)
- In light of our governor's executive order (March 16, section 2) in line with prior CDC recommendations that no groups above 50 meet, and his subsequent request that the new CDC guideline eliminating groups above 10.
- And considering our President's guidelines that there be no groups of more than 10
- AND being mindful that our small church is largely in the 60+ at risk age group.
- The potential ramifications of doing nothing, or not acting soon enough weighed against the potential ramifications of over-responding.
THEREFORE Our elders, out of an abundance of caution have decided to cancel in person services at the church building on March 22 with an intention to observe the situation and make subsequent decisions based upon real time information.
I have assembled a number of online resources to empower us as a church to stay connected.
The Church needs to worship together. It is vital, and this is one of my deep concerns should a one week suspension grow into multiple weeks.
Praise God for Christian radio, and avail yourself of that.
For starters, the morning Sermon will be broadcast via Youtube at 10 AM on Sunday. http://www.youtube.com/c/FameEvangelicalChurchMoweaqua
Being faithful in our tithes and gifts at this time is important as it is at any time. In the short term, you may consider a few different ideas.
- Storing up your gift until we are together again - assuming the short term.
- Mailing your check directly to our financial secretary, Nadyne at 102 S. Franklin, Moweaqua - or to the parsonage at 10 Sheri CT, Moweaqua.
- Missions checks can be mailed in care of Theresa (10 Sheri CT)
- Our website will very soon have a secure giving page for online giving.
