Dear EFCP Members,
This wave of new Covid-19 pandemic has not yet reached a level where normal gatherings can be resumed in the Phoenix area. Therefore, the D&E board decided on 4/23 that it will continue to maintain the current way of church online meetings until the end of May. If the epidemic situation eases and normal gatherings can be resumed before end of May, we will notify you as soon as possible. As a result, the original Missionary Day of the 5/3 will be postponed to the second half of this year, and new time will be notified in the future. The Sunday meeting on 5/3 will continue in the usual way of separate meetings in Chinese and English. In addition, the Mother's Day worship on 5/10 will still be combined service with Chinese and English, but the Mother Day’s lunch after worship will be cancelled. Please be understood and supportive.
Special thanks to the brothers and sisters for your supports during the past period, so that the church ’s Sunday worship, Sunday school, small group meetings and prayer meetings can continue to be conducted in the form of online. If you haven’t been able to participate in those meetings due to technical difficulties, please be sure to contact your small group leader, Sunday school teachers or pastors as soon as possible. We can help you to solve these difficulties so that you can follow the Bible ’s teaching to not stop worship. Doing so, you can maintain a proper connection with God and the body of church.
If you have difficulties in your life due to this epidemic, or have some special needs, please contact your small group leader or the pastor of the church as soon as possible. We will help you face these difficulties and provide necessary help as much as we can. Please also continue to raise your hand of prayer, especially for our government leaders, those first-line medical and responders, as well as communities, churches, and family and friends around you. Pray for God’s mercy and care. Also let this epidemic become an opportunity for the faith and spiritual growth for each of us.
Finally, may God bless you and your family, protect you, and give you peace
