LETTER FROM OUR PASTOR
Dear Church Family,
We are staying up to date on the news surrounding the situation with the Coronavirus and praying about wise responses to what is occurring. As Christians we trust God with our futures and don’t respond to global events with fear. At the same time, we do respond with compassion and a sense of stewardship, so we want to make sure we make decisions that benefit all of the community that God has put us in.
Based on the information we have received as of Friday, March 13, we have decided to cancel all EIC church activities until further notice (both Rueil Malmaison and Ternes). This is not done out of fear, but out of a responsibility we have to be good citizens in France as well as to protect each other in the coming days.
What does following Christ in church life look like in a situation like this? This is a good question that I look forward to exploring with you. One thing is clear though: we still need the Jesus in each other. I would encourage all of you during this time to be intentional about staying in communication with your home groups, D-Groups, and brothers and sisters in the church. Pray for each other. Encourage one another. Continue to share your lives with each other. It is possible that the coming weeks will see us isolated from each other, so take advantage of the grace God gives us in technology and the means we still have to communicate.
In addition, please be intentional about checking for communication from the church. The two main avenues will be through the newsletter and through Facebook. We will do our best to post news as well as devotional content in the coming days to help us all pray through and contemplate the events of these troubling days.
As mentioned in the last sermon, we have a good God who is sovereign over all things, including the virus. Let us look to him for our security and remember the promises we have received. Romans 8:28 tells us, “And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.” To the extent we can believe that, we can have peace in the midst of the Coronavirus.
