Update from Administration – July -7

July 7, 2020

Dear Florida Conference family,

We pray this week’s update finds each of you well and that the week ahead is a reminder of God’s countless blessings and the freedom we enjoy because of His greatest gift, Jesus Christ, our Savior.

As our state continues to move forward with reopening, the gravity of new COVID-19 cases being confirmed daily is heavy on all our hearts. As the numbers continue to rise in the thousands, we must proceed with caution regarding decisions to reopen our churches. We recommend that our pastors delay this process until the health and safety of our members can be ensured. We ask our pastors and church staff to carefully assess the situation in each respective area and proceed cautiously in moving forward with any decisions.

During this time, we would like to encourage each of you to stay in touch with your local church family, as some are suffering from the virus. Let us also remain in an attitude of prayer for the healing of our country, not only from the consequences of this pandemic but also from the many social realities we face today. It is important to lift each other up in prayer and remember, “Where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them” (Matthew 18:20).

Please continue to be safe and trust that God is with you and will give you peace.

May God bless you always,

Florida Conference Administration
