Church at Wazeecha is taking steps to be sensitive to the state of emergency recognized by our state and federal governments. Look at those links for their recommendations. As of Monday, the President recommended only gatherings under 10 people for the current time. Wazeecha is taking steps to comply. Romans 13 tells us to obey the government because God put it there. We ask God to direct our leaders. We will resume a more routine schedule after this difficulty is over.
I want you to know that this is out of love and not fear. We love our neighbors, we love our community, we love our nation. Because of that love, we pray that God will give mercy and draw people to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ because of this turbulent time.
Psalm 16 says
1 Protect me, God, for I take refuge in You.
2 I said to Yahweh, “You are my Lord; I have nothing good besides You.”
3 As for the holy people who are in the land, they are the noble ones. All my delight is in them.
4 The sorrows of those who take another ⌊god⌋ for themselves will multiply; I will not pour out their drink offerings of blood, and I will not speak their names with my lips.
5 LORD, You are my portion and my cup ⌊of blessing⌋; You hold my future.
6 The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance.
7 I will praise the LORD who counsels me— even at night my conscience instructs me.
8 I keep the LORD in mind always. Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.
9 Therefore my heart is glad and my spirit rejoices; my body also rests securely. (Psalm 16:1-9 (HCSB)) We will update this space and communicate on our website, and by facebook, email, and stay in contact with you in other means if you let us know what means you prefer.
His best to you,
Dr. Trey Turner is founding pastor of Church at Wazeecha. He and his family are church planters with the Southern Baptist Convention.
