Coronavirus and The Church: What Should We Do?

The airwaves and newspapers are buzzing with information and opinions about COVID19. What should your church do about coronavirus? These Bible Truths will help you know.

coronavirus COVID19 and the Church

Viruses are scary. History is replete with examples of deadly plagues and sicknesses. No one wants to get sick. Everybody wants to protect their family.

When social distancing is promoted as our only hope, what should ministries do? Church is a social environment. Do we stop church for the foreseeable future? Should we hide in our houses in fear?

What is coronavirus? Is this a global pandemic that will kill untold millions? Or is it more like a stronger version of the common flu? With doctors and pundits on both sides of the equation, it’s hard to know what we can believe.

I don't know if #COVID19 is a bust or a harbinger of death. I do know that whatever it is God will get us through it. Click To Tweet

To make matters worse, the media today has an agenda. The media establishment prospers financially during crises. Their age-old adage is “If it bleeds, it leads.” That’s why we live in a day of constant “breaking news” and 24 hour-a-day stories that promote fear and anxiety. After all, you pay more attention to the news when you are worried about what is going on in the world.

Further, the media is polarized politically. Many people want the Trump administration to fail so badly that they seem giddy about the possibility of sickness, death, and financial pain. That’s sick.

Should you cancel church services? Should you postpone events? Should you cancel fellowships and meals?

These Biblical principles are good for any difficult situation.

Spring Church Planting Conference Recap – Save New England

God is moving in New England. Rejoice with us over the highlights of the conference and watch a short recap video.

“And when they were come, and had gathered the church together, they rehearsed all that God had done with them, and how he had opened the door of faith unto the Gentiles.”

Acts 14:27

In this passage of Scripture, Paul and Barnabas returned from a missionary journey and declared the good things that God had done. It is a good idea to rehearse the goodness of God to churches so that those who were not present during God’s blessings can praise the Lord for His work.

Allow me to share God’s blessings from our recent conference so you can rejoice with us and pray for the spiritual need in New England.
