WHAT OUR CHURCH IS DOING

Our church staff is meeting regularly to assess updates and make recommendations for our church’s response, including developing contingencies for worship gatherings and other programming. We will continue to hold services and programs (Sundays and throughout the week). In addition, we are also adding the following measures:

  • We will not have a greeting time during our services and suggest that handshaking not be done as we welcome each other.

  • We will not be passing the offering during services; however, we will provide offering stations. We also want to remind you of our other methods of giving, including our online giving page and texting any dollar amount to 84321.

  • Rather than our greeters handing out bulletins, we will make them available for you to pick up at your discretion.

  • We will be providing hand sanitizer at various locations around the church.

  • We are also suspending our complimentary coffee stations as another level of precaution.

 

WHAT YOU CAN BE DOING

  • Regard safety and travel advisories issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which can be found here.

  • Use wisdom and stay home if you are sick and not attend worship or other church activities until symptom-free and fever-free for at least 72 hours.

  • If you have high-risk health conditions, use discretion in attending worship services/gatherings.

The Claremore Faith worship services will be streamed live on our Facebook Page, and all of our sermons are archived and can be heard on our Sermons page at any time.

HOW YOU CAN PRAY

2 Timothy 1:7 says, "For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind." As believers, we have the authority which Christ has given us to pray against the spread of any disease and to pray for healing for those who have the Coronavirus.

  • Begin your prayer time by praising God for His sovereignty. He still is and always will be in control of all things. Pray that we will trust Him to help us navigate this season of uncertainity.

  • Pray for wisdom for governmental leaders, the CDC, researchers, other medical personnel, leaders in churches, and other strategic places to respond wisely and appropriately.

  • Pray for cooperation and collaboration among medical agencies and personnel around the world to work together for the well-being and health of all people.

  • Pray for the protection of doctors, nurses, crisis response teams, emergency first responders, researchers and other medical professionals who risk their lives to protect ours.

  • Pray for comfort and healing for those stricken with this virus. Pray they will receive the quality health care they need to regain health and strength. Pray their healing and for the vaccine to cure and eradicate this virus.

  • Pray for the protection and safety of those considered “at-heightened-risk.”

  • Pray for peace, calmness, freedom from fear, anxiety, and panic among individuals and communities.

  • Pray we would be proactive in proclaiming the gospel and sharing the good news of Jesus Christ. Pray this event would be a catalyst for revival. 

 

HOW YOU CAN LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR

Take a moment and look around you. Who are those people in your life that may be thankful for a helping hand during this time? Offer to run errands for those who have high-risk health concerns or send a note of encouragement. The tendency is to go into a self-protective mode and isolate; however, we can show others that they are not alone. How the church loves well is important. Challenge yourself to encourage someone today. Sometimes, the most powerful thing we can do is reach out and let someone know we care.

Through it all, pray and ask the Lord to point us back to His truth in all we say and do.
