During this season of “social distancing”, we have had to consider new ideas and strategies for having services that protect our congregation from the spread of COVID-19. With this in mind, we have made the decision to temporarily convert our services into virtual services in order to prevent physical contact between members and visitors.
WOFCCA virtual services means the church will still have Sunday services but it will be without the congregation. Rather than coming into the physical building, we are asking church visitors and members to tune in to a live stream of the service each Sunday until we can safely resume regular in-house services.
Given our desire to follow the requests of the CDC and the governing authorities and continue to remain mindful towards those who are at risk for serious illness, we have chosen the following steps for the next two weeks:
1. We will offer Sunday Virtual worship services each Sunday. We ask that you go to our Facebook page by 9am and 6pm to view the live stream using this link:
**Please note- You do NOT have to have a Facebook account to live stream our online service. Because it is a public page, it is open to everyone. You can view from your computer or any mobile device…including your phone.
We will provide the normal program for church which includes praise & worship, any special announcements pertaining to our ministry, and the sermon. Again, the church building is closed to the public. Only the needed people to produce the live stream will be present. If you do not have access to livestream the service, please let us know so we can forward the service to you after it is recorded.
2. Please consider inviting other family and friends to watch via the livestream on Facebook.
3. In addition, all mid-week/weekend classes have been temporarily put on hold, unless provided virtually.
4. Please continue to give to WOFCCA. This season of virtual services only is so crucial to the financial well-being of our church. We currently have some members already giving their tithes and offerings online. We appreciate this and really need it during this time. If you don’t currently give online, please consider giving through our website at WOFCCA.org under the Giving tab. It’s easy, and there are no fees if you choose to give through your checking account. This will help us maintain our day to day operations. If you prefer, you can also mail your check to the church: Word of Faith Community Church PO Box 101, Emerson, GA 30137.
Please let us know if there’s anything we can do to serve you during this stressful time. The Bible says in Hebrews 10:24-25 (CSB) And let us watch out for one another to provoke love and good works, not neglecting to gather together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging each other, and all the more as you see the day approaching.
We are continually praying that God allows for us to come back together to the apostles' teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. (Acts 2:42)
Until then, we ask that you continue in your faithfulness to the utmost High God who is forever faithful to us!
Anchored in Christ,
Pastor Brad and Hannah Hamby
