Dear Montwood family,
As all of you know, our world has been impacted by the COVID-19 or coronavirus. Schools have made the decision to extend Spring Break or go on-line, sporting events and other mass gatherings have been cancelled, and travel has been curtailed or even prohibited.
Although the risk for the average person from this virus remains low, especially if hygienic precautions are taken, nevertheless our senior saints and those with underlying health conditions remain at risk. Because of this and the fact that there is now a confirmed case in El Paso, we have decided to forego all of our activities. This includes Sunday School, worship, small groups, and youth activities until further notice.
The Sunday school (0930 am) and the Sunday Sermon will be live streamed on our Facebook page. We will post any future updates about events on Facebook, our website, and through e-mails and phone calls. If you know of anyone who does not have access to these means of communication, please take a moment and contact them so that they are aware of what is going on.
The monthly Food Pantry Distribution has been cancelled for May 2020. The church leadership will decide on a monthly basis when to resume the food distribution.
As believers, we operate in faith, not in fear. We trust that God will provide for and protect us. We are spiritual beings who are not focused solely on our physical existence. At the same time, we must care for and protect the most vulnerable among us from coming to harm. Even though the likelihood of something tragic happening is still remote, we do not want for even one member of our flock to fall ill or worse as a result of coming to one of our meetings.
Thank you for your understanding. May God bless you and your families during this uncertain time.
Jim, Lonnie, Demetrius
