Coronavirus Church Announcement
Dear Merson Church Family,
The church pastors and board members are very concerned with both the spiritual and physical health of its members and friends. We urge the congregation to: 1) Trust God; and 2) Take Reasonable Precautions. That remains our approach to the rapidly changing circumstances related to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
If you haven’t heard, the Governor of Michigan issued a recommendation to avoid all gathering greater than 100 people in a shared space.
Hebrews 10:23-25 reads: “Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.”
Clearly, the regular assembly of the local church is a high priority and a command given to us by the Lord, but there is also a significant measure of freedom granted to us in the application of that command. The definition of the word “neglect” means “deserting”. When combined with the word “habit”, which means “regular practice”, the temporary suspending of the regular assembly is permitted by the Lord, while continual or habitual forsaking is not.
There are, of course, many other texts that speak to the current situation, including the passages which speak of submission to governing authorities and doing no harm to a neighbor. We are aware that there are a variety of opinions regarding what to do among faithful local churches in our area, and among our own congregation.
After much prayer, counsel and discussion, the pastors and the church board on Friday March 13th decided to suspend all church services at Merson through March 29th. (Sunday Services, Wednesday Services and Men and Women’s Bible Studies) The church board will meet again March 30th to re-evaluate the situation. Pastor Carson will provide a video and short bible study worksheet for every person and/or family to go through each Sunday morning for the next three weeks. The video will be posted on Facebook as well the church website each week that includes bible verses and study questions.
Please pray that this will be the beginning of a revival in our country. Eternal life is found in Jesus Christ! We have good news to share!
Joy in Jesus,
Pastor Alan Carson Sr.
