Dear Living Hope Family,
 
         The Coronavirus (Covid-19) has been at the forefront of our international and national
news, and now with increased cases in our boroughs, as a congregation
we want to do all we can to see this virus curtailed and to honor King Jesus.
 
        As a church, we have committed to regularly monitor (several times weekly) the
situation through the CDC and Department of Health. As many of you already know, gatherings
in the city has been reduced to 50 people and may even go to no more than 10 people for at least
the next 8 weeks. This decision will impact our services and all our ministries. Here are some
things to know:
 
• As of this moment, we will be suspending all our services and ministries until
further notice. However, there will be church online. On Sunday, at both 9:30am
and 11:15am we will be streaming the service to you so that you can remain
connected to us.

• Secondly, please consider giving online as our staff and office will still be
operating.

• Be patient with us as things are changing rapidly and we may make some changes
to coincide with the technology that we have. We provide podcasted sermons and
video messages available on our website at livinghope.cc.
 
          We are doing all we can to stay abreast of the changes while at the same time continuing
to keep other responsibilities at Living Hope moving along.
In regard to giving, you can go to livinghope.cc to continue or engage in donations there
to help us and the staff continue to work. We will be doing all we can to maintain
communication with you. Please check your email, follow us on all social media sites
(Facebook, Instagram and Twitter) and check out our website (www.Livinghope.cc) for more
information.

Thank you so much for your consideration at this time.
 
  Let’s intentionally call to mind God’s Word and live in light of the comfort and instruction
found in Scriptures like the following…
                   • Psalm 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
 
This is a time to show love to all that we come into contact with through acts of love and
kindness. This includes considering not only your own well-being, but the well-being of
others by doing the following:

• Wash your hands frequently. This is the most important step you can take to avoid getting
sick and spreading germs to other. Always cover your coughs and sneezes.
• Stay home when you or someone in your family is sick. Remain at home until fever has
gone for at least 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medicines.
 
Let’s ask the Lord to open doors of opportunity as we together seek to be the hands and feet of
Christ Jesus in our hurting world. Remember, Jesus touched lepers. We do not want to live in
fear and isolate ourselves. The love of God is needed in fresh ways in our world now more than
ever.
                   To that end, let’s pray that we align our hearts and lives with what our Lord and King is
doing in our community and world, and for His healing on those directly affected by
sickness.
 
Serving together with you,
Pastor Nehru Grant & The Board of Elders
