CHURCH CANCELLED FOR NEXT TWO WEEKS

Dear Crosswalkers,

It is with a heavy heart that I’m announcing that we have to cancel our worship services for the next two weeks, and our school for the next three weeks.

This is in response to the Public Health Directives for Santa Clara County. All social meetings of 35-100 people are to be cancelled, unless we follow the strict guidelines by the County. We can easily follow those guidelines, but as I indicated in my earlier email, we want to cooperate fully as good citizens and do all we can to halt the spread of a virus which is deadly, especially to seniors.

I can’t tell you how hard it is for me to make this decision. And I don’t make it alone. It is made in consultation with our pastoral staff and our Church Council.

Here is our plan. This Sunday we will record our service from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. Our office manager, Becky Morales will share her testimony, and then our guest speaker, Jim Jessup from Wm Jessup University, will preach a message entitled “What is my Mission?” His text is Isaiah 43:6-7 -
6 ”I will say to the north, ‘Give them up!’ and to the south, ‘Do not hold them back.’ Bring my sons from afar and my daughters from the ends of the earth— 7 everyone who is called by my name, whom I created for my glory, whom I formed and made.”

The audio recording will be uploaded to our website and on our app at 10:00 a.m.

The following week we will hopefully have the technology in place to live stream the service. We will send you instructions for how to watch.

This means we will have to postpone our baptism service to a later date.

I can’t tell you how much I hate to do this. But let’s redeem the time and be in earnest prayer for the health and safety of our community, our country, and our world.

This morning our school held a lovely pep rally, and this is the verse our SCS Kids were challenged to memorize:

Psalm 28:7 (NIV) -
The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him.

I encourage you to memorize and be blessed by this verse as well.

We will be in communication with you regarding further updates.

Please help us spread the word to family or friends who may not be online.

Love in the Lord,

Pastor John
