Dear Church Family,
In accordance with Governor Northam’s executive order, the church building will remain closed until June 10, unless rescinded or amended by the governor. We will continue to livestream our Sunday Worship services as we have done since March 15. We eagerly look forward to the day when this pandemic is behind us and we may resume meeting together.
In the meantime, we urge you to continue to reach out to one another and to your neighbors in ways that are consistent with social-distancing guidelines. We urge Faith groups (our umbrella name for small groups, Bible study groups, prayer groups, and ministry teams) to meet virtually via Microsoft Teams, Zoom, or some other online platform.
In addition, we urge you to continue your financial giving to the ministry of our church and the missions we support as a church. Giving for our fiscal year is currently running about $6,000 behind budget, and the summer months are typically our lowest giving months. Even though we are not meeting together on Sundays, the need for your faithful financial support remains. You may send checks to the Church Office or give online through the church web site (www.faithepchurch.org). Please know how grateful we are to all of you who have continued to give, in some cases above and beyond your Faith Promises, during this extraordinary time.
Will you also continue to pray? Pray for one another. Pray for those afflicted with COVID-19. Pray for those who have lost loved ones during this pandemic. Pray for all health care workers, and other public servants and employees who put themselves at risk in order to serve the common good. Pray for our nation’s leaders at this critical time. Pray for the peoples of the world who are, like us, in the grip of the pandemic. Pray for the virus to stop spreading. Pray that the message of the gospel will continue to spread, even in these days of social distancing. Pray that many hearts will be drawn to the Savior.

God bless you and keep you in His care,
