Dear Capital City
Christian Church Members,
The leadership and staff at Capital City have decided, for the health and
wellness of the most vulnerable members of our church family and our members
working in the healthcare field, to suspend all on-campus activities for the
next two weeks, through Friday, April 3. We plan to reevaluate in time for
Palm Sunday, April 5.
We trust in God for His protection and deliverance. We also know He
places people in positions of authority for our good. Since the Governor
and President have declared a state of emergency, whereby large gatherings of
people are to be avoided to prevent this virus from spreading, we are being
obedient to God’s Word. Romans 13:1-2 tells us to “be subject to the
governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that
exist have been instituted by God.”
We do not make this decision lightly, but feel this is the best option to
assist the community in slowing transmission of the COVID-19 virus if one
should occur in our area.
We will continue to hold Sunday services online. Please watch for more
information on this in the coming days.
Capital City encourages members that are able and willing to safely host
small groups in their homes, in accordance with current CDC guidelines, to
gather for community worship if you can. We also encourage those that are
healthy and able to find ways to serve our church family and then community
at large during this uncertain time, as we do our best to be Jesus to all
Capital City is in the process of establishing a Response Team that will be
ready to step in and help anyone that needs assistance. If you or anyone you
know needs help running errands, etc., please call the church office at (573)
635-1322 and we will relay your needs to the team. Please note you may
be asked to leave a message, but rest assured you will receive a call back.
These are uncertain times, unlike any we have ever experienced, but our God
is Faithful and bigger than this situation. He will deliver us. We understand
the inability to gather as a larger church family is disappointing to many,
but for the reasons mentioned above, we feel these measures are what He is
expecting of us. We will continue to monitor information as it develops and
will communicate any additional changes in a timely fashion.
We know that God is in control in all things, and we continue trusting in Him
and what His Word tells us. Thank you for your understanding and
Capital City Christian Elders & Staff
