You received an earlier email from me assuming we would still be assembling in person for worship. However, just today we have heard ongoing, expanding directives of our governmental agencies as they attempt to mitigate the spread of the COVID – 19 ‘Coronavirus.’ Therefore, we are immediately cancelling ALL scheduled ministries of DAC, everyday, regardless of location, until further notice.
We will make every effort to communicate updates via email, social media, ministry leaders etc. when updates or changes are known. Even though we will not be meeting in person you may participate in worship Sunday morning via the internet livestream. Pastor Carly will be leading, I will be preaching, and hopefully all of us praying together streamed live at 10:51AM bragonjesus.org/live . It may also be replayed at anytime through the church website, ROKU, or Fire TV. So, I’ll look forward to our ‘online worship together’ this Sunday.
Lastly, two scriptures have inspired me as together we share this unprecedented experience.
Romans 8:28 (NKJV)
28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.
Exodus 15:26 (HCSB)
26 He said, “If you will carefully obey the LORD your God, do what is right in His eyes, pay attention to His commands, and keep all His statutes, I will not inflict any illnesses on you that I inflicted on the Egyptians. For I am Yahweh who heals you.”
Heavenly Father, let us live in faith not fear. Thank You that You are in control of Your universe and our lives. We trust You with both. We pray this Coronavirus pandemic will result in a manifestation of Romans 8:28. Use this for our good and Your glory. Your grace is enough, for Your power if perfected in our weakness. You specialize in tough cases. May the reputation of Your Son be magnified through this perceived crisis. May Jesus be lifted up and draw all people to Himself. Lastly, just as You were ‘preventative medicine’ for Your covenant people Israel, may You be the same for us. We trust You as our Divine health. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
