The congregation of New Church Family voted unanimously to suspend church services and social events for at least a month, pending further crowd-control guidance from the federal government.
The decision came after the Centers for Disease Control urged Americans to avoid congregating in group any larger than 10 in order to slow the spread of highly contagious coronovirus, Earlier, the CDC had been recommending a crowd limit of 25 to control the epidemic.
Board President Dennis Brooks said the church will continue conducting outreach, using our web site, our Facebook Group page and email, as well as traditional contacts by telephone. The church telephone, 386-527-5952, remains in operation, and its Word Up newsletter will continue publishing. We encourage members to share their prayer requests, music videos inspirational essays and community news.
We also ask members to mail their tithes to the church regularly (or use Pay Pal) so we can continue to meet building expenses -- utilities, insurance, alarm system and the like. April 5 is the next First Sunday monthly collection to support our Benevolence Fund.
