Dear Family and Friends of Anchor Point Bible Church,
We are writing this letter to update some changes that have taken place in the last 24 hours. The decision to cancel our Sunday morning service has been made due to the circumstances surrounding the Coronavirus (COVID-19). This decision has not come in haste and has involved a lot of discussion among the whole board as well as Pastor Rob and me.
Pastor Rob and I have been very involved in conversation about this even while he is in Arizona with his family. The decision has also been made that all activities which include Bible studies, AWANA, pickleball, and any other gatherings at the church are canceled until further notice.
While this is an unprecedented time for all, we would like to encourage everyone at this time to be in prayer for our church members, community, and the world as well as its leaders.
We, as believers, have a confidence that the lost world does not. That is the promise that God is in control and loves us to the point of sending His Son who was crucified, buried, and rose again to defeat sin and death. Paul tells us in Philippians 4: 6-7 that we should not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving that we need to make our requests be made known to God. And the peace of God which passes all understanding, will guard our hearts and minds in Jesus Christ.
As we move through our days may we not be anxious, but thankful that we have peace and a hope in Jesus Christ. And may we talk to those around us about who we are through Jesus by sharing the gospel with them.We love you all. We will be updating some more things tomorrow as we continue to discuss church operations at this time.
Thank you for your understanding.
Because He Lives,
The Board of Anchor Point Bible Church, Pastor Rob, and Pastor Steve
