A message from Pastor Jeff Rollison
The Ministry Vision Team has canceled on-site regular worship services, Inhouse classes and events for TCN through April 30. I’m sure this doesn’t come as a surprise since the state and federal social- distancing orders have been extended to April 30 as well. During this continued social distancing please let me know if there are any needs you may have. There are resources available to me through the church which can provide assistance.
I, along with Pastor Paul Baker and Jessica Myers will continue our present connections through facebook and Instagram in a continued attempt to have a venue of connection. There are preliminary plans to try to offer a drive-in service, but those are just plans at the moment – we’re awaiting an integral piece of equipment to be delivered in order to accomplish this type of service. We will let you know as soon as we are able to move forward on this.
Also, Josh Howard, our facility manager, continues to regularly clean surface areas on campus with a bleach solution. Even though any foot traffic has been very limited at TCN, it is my desire to attempt to stay ahead in mitigating any spread of the virus.
I have been watching the projections for the spread of coronavirus in Ohio. As more testing and quicker test results are available, I’m sure we’re going to see a significant increase in the number of confirmed cases, hospitalizations and even deaths. Projections by Dr. Amy Acton’s team from the Ohio Dept. of Health are saying April will be the peak month in Ohio, with as many as 6-10,000 new cases per day in approximately two weeks. That’s right around Easter.
This will certainly touch everyone in some way. We, as the church, will need to be spiritually and emotionally prepared for the anxiety we may not only have but others experience as well. Let’s continue to dig deep, ask for the Spirit’s direction and anointing, and do everything we can to communicate the hope we have in Jesus Christ.
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may overflow with hope.” – Rom. 15:13
Kim and I are praying for you, and please know you are loved.
Pastor Jeff & Kim
