This is certainly unprecedented times and we need to benefit from the strength of our community now more than ever.

Our pastoral team shared some thoughts when this all started breaking and they are still true today. I reread this post regularly to help keep myself fixed on the Lord as we navigate these days. https://christchurchsouthphilly.org/how-should-christians-respond-to-the-coronavirus/
Oh, magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together! I sought the LORD, and he answered me and delivered me from all my fears. Those who look to him are radiant, and their faces shall never be ashamed. (Psa 34:3-5 ESV)
May Christ guard and guard each one of us,
