Bulletin for March 22, 2020
ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR SUNDAY 03/22/2020
Wednesday, March 18, 2020
To all the Brothers and Sisters of Calvary Chapel Lakeside,
As you all know the Corona Virus has impacted the lives of many not just here in San Diego but across the country and the world. Both the President of the United States and the Governor of the State of California have been issuing guidelines for all citizens. President Trump recently sent standards and procedures to all the states and requested that they be treated as ‘rules’. One of those ‘rules’ includes foregoing any meetings that have 10 people or more.
In an effort to honor God by following 1Peter 2:13, “Submit yourselves for the Lord’s sake to every authority instituted among men:…” we will be suspending all church services, Bible studies and meetings until Easter, April 12th, 2020. At that time, Lord willing, we will be holding a Sunday morning Resurrection service at 9:30am. All meetings and Bible studies will resume that following week. We will keep you informed if there are any changes or other necessary adjustments.
Even though we will not be gathering together it continues to be God’s will that we grow in the grace and knowledge or our Lord Jesus Christ, 2Peter3:18. I would like to encourage all of you to continue in the Word and in prayer for all of those affected by this pandemic and especially those who have suffered a loss of a loved one. In lieu of meeting on Sundays, I would direct you either to review and listen to a message in the online library at CClakeside.com or visit a good Bible Church that is webcasting messages.
Also, if you know of anyone who is unable to listen to a message on the web or is confined to their homes it would be a great idea to text, give them a call or visit them. There will be many who could use your prayers and reassurance that God is still in control. Remember, for those who are saved Romans 8:28 holds true, “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” NIV.
My prayer is that during this time God will be glorified and show Himself powerful and faithful.
Pregnancy Care Clinic
This fundraiser has been cancelled. Visit UNplannedparenthood.org for information on how to still assist.
Limited supplies at stores, limited outings and self-isolation are all a bit daunting however we have a lot to be thankful for as we hold onto the fact that we serve a great big, good God and He is still in control. As a member of the CCL church body, if you encounter a situation in these current times in which you need guidance, please do not hesitate to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Email is monitored frequently. Someone in leadership will respond ASAP.
