“A note from Matt Murphy, Lead Pastor:
As Christians, our trust is in God (Prov. 3:5), not an illness-free climate. And yet, God desires that we do what we can to make wise decisions – just like Nehemiah, who prayed to God and simultaneously posted a guard to protect the city (Nehemiah 4:9). We believe this is the wisest choice we can make with the information we have. If someone asks why we chose to respond this way, here’s what I would say: we are seeking to love our community by protecting our community from potential risk, especially those who are vulnerable. We plan to stay engaged with you as we continue to seek God and explore new opportunities to reach our community together during this unique time.”Matt Murphy, Lead Pastor
