After much discussion and prayer and given how quickly the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is evolving in our communities, we have made the difficult decision not to meet in person for Life Groups and Worship Service this weekend. Out of the abundance of care for the health and safety of our church family and on campus partnerships, we are taking these initial preventative measures:
This Sunday, March 15, we will have an ONLINE Worship Service only.
All in person Arapaho Road Baptist Church events and activities on our campus are cancelled through Friday, March 20.
Although we will not be meeting in person as a church family this Sunday, March 15, we still are worshipping together! I will bring a special message from Mark 4, bringing hope and perspective in this time of crisis. As believers, let us remain calm and put our trust in Jesus our Savior; and let us be ever attentive to share that hope with those who are hurting.
The service on Sunday, March 15 will be live streamed on Facebook at 10:45 a.m. from: www.facebook.com/arapahoroad
As always, please keep in mind that we have a safe and convenient way to give online through the Arapaho Road website by going to www.arapahoroad.org/online-giving/ and then following the prompts to GIVE. This is a secure way to remain faithful in your giving.
We will remain vigilant in the coming days and are continually in contact with perspectives from local and national health officials. Please check our website regularly for any updates. We also will continue to communicate through our website, e-mail and social media. If you would like to be added to email communication, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
These are trying days, but we have a great God who is still on the throne and He hears our prayers! Please pray for our church, our community, our nation and the world. Pray for those who have been infected with the coronavirus, pray for the most vulnerable, pray for the first responders and healthcare workers, and pray for our leaders. I am grateful to Pastor Jack Graham who penned most of this content for his church, that I in turn have modified for our purposes of communication.
As we seek the Lord, may we remember these words from the Apostle Paul. “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7
