At CMLCS, we care deeply about our community and we are here to serve. Jesus has given us the ultimate in Hope by Dying and Rising for us! This is the hope we long to bring to the world as we struggle to be cautious with the COVID-19 or Novel CoronaVirus.
Southeastern PA is going through a difficult Flu season and we are now seeing school closures in our area related to concerns about the spread of the coronavirus.
We plan to continue to hold services (both Lenten service 6:45PM Wednesday night as well as Sunday services) and ask that anyone not feeling well or in close contact with someone with the flu to please stay home. If you are not able to attend, you can stream the services live. You can do that by going back to the front page of this site and click the WATCH LIVE button. This will take you to our FACEBOOK page. If there is a live service it will give you the option to watch.
Actions we are taking now:
- Praying for those people already impacted for God’s healing power.
- Praying for the health care workers who treat and care for those who are affected.
- Placing hand sanitizers products like Purell throughout the sanctuary and other locations in the church / school.
- Taking extra steps now to sanitize the surfaces in the school and church that are most prone to touches and hands, i.e. desks, tables, door handles, water fountains, sinks, cabinet doors, phones, toys, and the top of pews in the Sanctuary where people rest their hands.
- Elders will take great care to wash hands before serving at Communion.
- Greeters will stop shaking hands at the entrances
- Monitoring and following guidance from state and local agencies
- The school is also communicating with staff and parents.
In addition, we want to remind people to take the following preventive measures to protect oneself and others:
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
- Use alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water is not available.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Avoid close contact to people who are unwell.
- Stay at home, if you show suspicious symptoms (like fever, cough).
- Sneeze and cough in the crook of the arms and turn away from others.
- Dispose of your tissue in a trash/rubbish bin after single use and wash your hands after.
If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to Pastor, the office or your Elder. We want to let our light shine throughout this time and let everyone know that we care.
