Dear brothers and sisters,
As you all know, this is a unique time in all of our lives! The Army & Navy Academy has closed the entire campus including the Chapel for the next two weeks (March 15 & 22) in order to limit gatherings in the wake of the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic. The County of San Diego has also imposed a ban on gatherings of 250+ and issued a guideline that gatherings in one space indoor or outdoor under 250 have “social distancing” of 6-feet between persons. This means worship at the Chapel (March 15 & 22) is cancelled and our conference (March 20–21) is postponed till a later date.
This is also a time to express love for your neighbors both in and out of the church. Economically, things may be difficult for some of us, while others may have needs due to illness or physical limitations. If you need anything tangible, reach out to a brother or sister or contact one of the deacons. If you think someone may be in need, want to check in with someone, pray with someone, please reach out to one another during this time. The consistory will be reaching out to you all as well during this time (if you’d like to talk to an elder, contact us).
As Christians we have no need to fear or panic. Our trust is in the Lord, who's made and redeemed us, and who upholds us day by day in his tender hand. May we entrust ourselves to him and be a witness of his grace to our unsaved neighbors during this time!
