UPDATES ON COVID-19 FROM ABUNDANT LIFE CHURCH
HERE’S WHAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP IN THIS TIME OF NEED:
- Pray for our community and those directly affected by COVID-19. Pray for the health care workers who are treating the sick and the public health administrators making difficult decisions. Pray that God would protect our community from further spread of the virus.
- Be an example of Jesus Christ. In these concerning situations, the church (all of us) can shine as a light of hope, generosity, faith, and patience. We can demonstrate to the world how our faith provides assurance against all worry and fear.
- Practice recommended personal hygiene. Wash your hands frequently and stay home if you are sick.
ACCORDING TO THE CDC, HERE ARE STEPS WE CAN ALL TAKE:
- If you are high risk, such as older adults and those with underlying chronic medical conditions, avoid crowds as much as possible.
- 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 objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
While we exercise wisdom in keeping ourselves and our loved ones safe, we trust that divine health and protection is from Jesus Christ. Let’s continue to trust in His promises of protection and provision for ourselves, our families, and all those who are affected by illness and pray that the virus will be contained and conquered.
Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge, even the Most High, your dwelling place, no evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come near your dwelling. Psalm 91:9–10
And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to his purpose… What then, shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? Romans 8:28, 31
