“Be still and know that I am God” (Psalm 66:10)
As everyone wonders and worries about the spread of the corona virus, let’s keep our eyes on God, his love for us, his promises to us, and his control over all things. Let’s stay close to Him and look after each other and those in our community.
Meanwhile, things will be different at Cornerstone. Worship services are cancelled until further notice. We will, however, record an altered service 10:30 AM each Saturday; if a few people want to come that’s fine as long as we practice social distancing :). That recorded service will be put on YouTube and a link for it will be on our website: sacrc.ca. Audio recordings can be provided if you don’t have access to this. A great time to watch the recording would be Sundays at 10:30 AM. We’d still be together in spirit. Prayer requests can be sent in to [email protected] or left on the answering machine at 250-832-8452 and will be included in the congregational prayer. Bulletins will continue to be sent out. We can give our tithes and offerings via mail: Cornerstone Christian Reformed Church, 1191-22nd St. NE, Salmon Arm, V1E 2V5. We are working on getting online giving up and running soon.
The elders, Sandra, as elder assistant for the seniors, and the pastor will do their best to stay in touch with everyone to ensure that our members are loved and looked after. But even more importantly let’s look after each other through visits (if appropriate), calls, emails, and texts. If anyone needs help, or knows of neighbors who need help, in any way (picking up prescriptions, groceries, whatever) feel free to contact me, your elder, or your deacon. People are more than willing to help.
Small groups and Bible studies should meet at their own discretion. We must prevent the spread of the virus through social distancing and the protocols we’ve been given (hand washing, not touching our faces, staying home if sick, etc.), but also do what we can to promote fellowship and to support one another.
