In light of the rapidly changing developments due to the Global Pandemic of COVID-19, an extension of Spring Break for PISD and other local schools, and the concerns of so many, Plano Bible Chapel will adjust our normal ministry schedule as follows:
- Sunday, March 22 – 11:00am ONLINE WORSHIP SERVICES ONLY. Watch the English Sunday Worship Service via Plano Bible Chapel Facebook Live and we will post the sermon audio recording by 3:00pm.
- ALL regularly scheduled ministries, programs, and events are canceled until further notice in an effort to support the community, region, and nation’s need to slow the spread of COVID-19 with physical distancing.
We’ll provide another update late next week as things unfold. Until then, here are a few reminders and encouragements, as well as, some details regarding how Plano Bible Chapel is praying and addressing these concerns.
First, in fearful times, let’s pray for courage and peace. Philippians 4:16-17 says, “Don’t worry about anything, but in everything, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.” Let’s be authentic Christians who trust Jesus through times of difficulty, suffering, and even illness.
Second, we encourage you to regularly check the Center for Disease Control (CDC) for updates and advice regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus) rather than rely solely on news media outlets or social media posts. The CDC has very practical advice for steps to prevent illness and what to do if you are sick to help prevent the disease from spreading.
Third, please stay home if you have any concerns about your own health or your family’s health, perhaps due to age or compromised immune systems. Sunday morning worship services can be viewed on Facebook Live from the Plano Bible Chapel Facebook Page. If you have ministry or service responsibilities, please contact your ministry team leader. Also, as always, if you or anyone in your family is sick or feeling sick, please stay home. In our children’s and student ministries, we will continue to follow our standard health policies. Please help us by closely monitoring your children for any symptoms and being understanding if we feel we cannot accept your kids into our programs due to health concerns.
Fourth, we would remind everyone that there aren’t certain types of people that carry the virus, so don’t allow fear to cause any of us to treat others differently.
Finally, thank you for your patience and understanding as we all try to navigate some very strange and unexpected times. Pray for the health of people in our church, our community, our nation, and our world. Pray for those who are traveling or have plans to travel. Also, pray that the Lord Jesus would give us special opportunities to share His love with others during these times and lead others to a relationship with Him by faith.
