Dear Church Family,
After prayerful consideration and out of an abundance of caution, I am asking everyone other than those servants specifically scheduled to serve on the Set up, Audio, Worship Storm and Praise and Worship teams to stay at home with their families this Sunday.
I was truly hoping that we could continue to keep our doors open to a limited number of you wanting to attend our church service, but just today the Mayor of Passaic asked the churches within the city to suspend all of their services and events until the danger of spreading the coronavirus is significantly diminished.
While this is very disappointing, we will still be able to video record our Sunday service and make it available for download on our church website at ccnorthjersey.org at around 11am. As always, the audio message will also be available on the website and through our church podcast.
Our senior leadership team will be video-meeting this Saturday morning to discuss creative ideas for ministry and fellowship during this challenging time. I ask you to please pray that the Lord will give us His wisdom and direction as we seek His will and that He will deliver us all safely through this trial in His time.
Until then, please do not hesitate to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at (973) 472-0431 if you or your family need anything.
Blessings and prayers that we can gather together for fellowship again very soon.
