CC Update . . .
On Sunday, March 1st , we had our annual “Healing Focus” not knowing two weeks later we would not be able to meet as a body of believers that we were so accustomed and comfortable in doing. We began “live streaming” March 15th and have been doing that for the last six Sundays. This Sunday, the 26th . will be our 7th Sunday live streaming. Things have happened so fast with the COVID-19 pandemic; I’m still shaking my head. I believe God has multiple purposes in allowing this apocalyptic event to happen, not the least of which is for we Christians to reassess our priorities and re-align our purposes with the plan and will of God. As we surrender our lives, family, and church into God’s hands, we are in a position to go forward in confidence no matter how the pandemic and meltdown of the economy plays out. I’m reminded of the words of God to Joshua, after the death of Moses, “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” (Joshua 1:9). We can take heart with the power of God’s presence and the authority of His promises as we press on to some outstanding and supernatural works of God that lie ahead. Peg and I love you and pray for you.
Bible Studies: Our ZOOM and FB Bible Studies are going very well; I couldn’t be more pleased. The men’s and women’s studies have been going for a few weeks. We added a Wednesday night study and had fifteen people for the study. We will send the ZOOM address via email before the studies.
Live Streaming: You can reach our Sunday morning stream at 10:30 am. If you miss it, you can catch it again at 1:00 pm and the rest of the day. On YouTube type in the search, Calvary Chapel Indiana Lafayette. Note: Indiana before Lafayette. Subscribe to our YouTube channel. There’s no cost. You can also access by going to our web site: cchapel.org
Giving: We pray that God is meeting your needs during this downturn in the economy. We appreciate your faithful giving to Calvary Chapel during these crazy times. We are still able to support our missionaries, ministries, and pay all the bills, and we praise His name for that. “My God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:19)
Contact: You can contact me at my email address: firstname.lastname@example.org, or leave a message at the church 765-477-7744 and I will get back with you ASAP! God Bless, Pastor Joe Bell
