- Dear Grace Covenant Church, West-Mont has decided to follow the 14-day closure that has been put in place for all Montgomery County Schools. This closure will be effective Friday March 13, 2020 and tentatively go through March 26th, with students and staff returning on Friday, March 27th. This closure will include not only the school, but also all individuals that rent space within the two school buildings. Thus, we will not be able to meet at West-Mont for at least the next two Sundays. The elders have decided that we will meet as a church at Camp Sankanac in what is “The Knarr Family Dining Room.” We will meet at the same time on Sunday. The address for Camp Sankanac is: 68 Bertolet School Rd Spring City, PA 19475 If you have not been at the camp before you will park your car in front of the main office building in the parking lot across the street and then walk down the lane to the big white building. You will see our sign which will direct you where to go. The Dining Room is in that building where you can enter by the side doors. We will not run a Sunday School but meet together as a church family. We will be holding the Men’s Retreat. If you don’t feel comfortable attending these public events, we understand your reservations about doing so. Please read below for the guidelines that we will following are spelled out. In an effort to exercise wisdom during the spread of the Corona Virus, the Organizers of the Men’s Retreat/Elders of GCC recommend the following practices during our gatherings. We encourage what is now called social distancing. In other words, avoid touching others via handshake, hugs etc. Instead greet each other with a hearty smile. You might want to practice that hearty smile ahead of time. Other guidelines to practice; Avoid close contact with people who are sick. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. Stay home when you are sick. Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe. Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty. These guidelines are one way to show a love for one another as we look out for the well-being of others. For the most current and accurate information, the Centers for Disease Control have resources readily available. They can be found at www.cdc.gov. Let’s pray for our nation and our world that this pandemic will serve the purpose of many seeing that their Savior is not good health or having no threats to their well-being but they will indeed see their need for a Savior in Jesus.

- A prayer about fear (and Covid-19)Not a Spirit of FearGod has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and self-discipline. 2 Tim. 1:7 Heavenly Father, every portion of your Word is true and beautiful. Today this one small verse is both of those things, as well as being timely. The fear we feel, in response to the growing impact of the coronavirus, is palpable and understandable. To belong to Jesus doesn’t mean we are free from the “messier” emotions in the kaleidoscope of feelings. It means we handle them differently. In our anger, we choose not to sin. In our grief, we learn to weep...www.thegospelcoalition.org
