COVID-19 IMPORTANT IMPACT ON SUNDAY SERVICES
If you have been paying attention to the current rate of Covid-19 cases in Ohio you will know the change is significant. Ohio took more than six months to hit 3,000 cases daily, then hit 8,000 cases in 17 days. Naturally the rising rate of cases brings with it a greater risk of exposure. Based on this information the board of New Hope has decided to suspend Sunday services for the foreseeable future, beginning this Sunday, November 15th.
We are not making this decision out of fear but out of an abundance of caution. While we continue to trust God to protect us from this virus, we must also act in wisdom and not foolishness. When the devil tempted Jesus, Jesus quoted Deuteronomy 6 that says, “You must not put the Lord your God to the test.” Simply put, we live by faith and trust in God but walk wisely in this fallen world.
I personally know several people that have Covid 19 and I know of four people that are fighting it right now, all believers, including one brother in the Lord on a ventilator fighting for his life.
There is not enough time for me to tape, edit and upload a message for this Sunday. Therefore, I will post an older message on the website and will then post new messages on the following Sundays. We will keep you informed as we move forward. May God continue to protect and provide for you.
