SOCIAL DISTANCING DOESN’T MEAN SPIRITUAL DISTANCING.
HERE ARE RESOURCES FOR YOU TO CONTINUE YOUR GROWTH IN YOUR FAITH.
Dear Restoration Church Family,
As we continue to navigate the challenges around COVID-19 and safe in person gatherings on our campuses, the elders of Restoration Church have recommended that we close our services for the next 2 weeks. This decision was reached based on the following considerations – (1) The concern with large family gatherings during the Thanksgiving holiday; (2) The statement issued last week by an Alabama health official that coronavirus is “out of control” in Alabama; (3) The number of people connected to our church or church families that are testing positive for COVID, continues to rise.
It is our hope and belief that taking this 2 week break from our gatherings will provide the time needed to ascertain if Thanksgiving gatherings posed a serious threat to the spread of this disease, as well give those who are recovering from COVID the time needed to quarantine in the safe environments of their home. It is also a good time for each of us to reflect on what we can do to possibly slow the spread of this disease. My family has decided to forego our annual Thanksgiving gatherings as a precaution. Although we will miss the wonderful time we have when we get together, we believe it is prudent under these circumstances to exercise caution.
Please don’t mistake our actions as a sign of unbelief, for it is just the opposite. We whole-heartedly believe and trust in the power of God to not only save us, but also heal us. We also believe that God expects us to lead with a wisdom that is bold, but practical. So, enjoy this Thanksgiving season and do not forget to show forth your gratitude towards God for all He has done and continues to do for us. Be safe, be kind, be bold, be smart, and may the grace of God our Father be with you continually.
