Virtual Services Update

Dear Church Family,

I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Ephesians 3:16

As we continue to practice “social distancing” and honor the stay-at-home order for Osceola and Orange counties we hope that you will join us this sabbath on Facebook live by going to https://www.facebook.com/celebrationsda We look forward to worshiping with you again this Sabbath, even if it is virtually!

We had a wonderful Bible study on Tuesday were we talked about “Hope” and how our hope is not in this world but how our hope is in Jesus Christ and no matter how difficult or challenging things get, we have the hope of a bright future and faith that Jesus will see us through these challenging times. Please join us next Tuesday at 7:30 pm for another great Bible study on “Encouragement”. You can join by going to meet.google.com/squ-zzjk-uim or calling (US)+1 402-628-0136 PIN: ‪969 453 935#

Important COVID-19 information/reminders:

What am I able to do with the Stay-at-Home Order in effect?  · Go to the grocery store or pharmacy · Go to medical appointments (but check with provider first) · Visit a restaurant for takeout dining · Care for a family member or loved one · Take a walk, ride your bike, jog and be outside for exercise (just observe social distancing and remain six feet of space between you and others)

A WORD ON PREVENTIVE MEASURES It’s important we continue practicing everyday preventive actions that can help prevent the spread of respiratory illnesses such as novel coronavirus (COVID-19):  · Stay home when you are sick, except to get medical care. · Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue or cough into the crook of your arm. · Clean frequently touched surfaces and objects daily · Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. · Limit close contact with others as much as possible (about 6 feet).

AdventHealth recently added some coronavirus prevention resources and video podcasts to our consumer resource site focused on churches. Please take a look at this site as it has lots of great information on how to keep your spirits up and how to share the good news during challenging times!

Sincerely,

Tim Farley Head Elder

Important Announcement Regarding Sabbath service – COVID-19 | Coronavirus

 

Dear Church Family,

Our prayer for you is that you would prosper and be in health as your soul prospers 3 John 1:2.

With concerns over coronavirus (COVID-19) continuing to grow and the World Health Organization officially labeling it as a pandemic it is important that we take necessary safety precautions.  The leadership team at Celebration S.D.A. Church would like to take the following precautionary steps to protect all our members.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) advises against travel to select countries with widespread community transmission of COVID-19 and further advises that citizens should avoid large crowds and if you do have to travel to a high risk country that you self-quarantine for 14 days post travel.  The current list of high-risk countries are: China, Iran, Korea, Japan and most European countries. This list however will likely be updated frequently so it is important to check the CDC website for updates.  For those who are at high risk of getting sick (elderly, people with chronic medical conditions like heart disease, diabetes and lung disease) they are advised to stock up on essential supplies (i.e. medication- prescription and over the counter, groceries and household essentials), take everyday precautions to keep space between yourself and others, keep away from others who are sick and wash your hands frequently when you do have to go out, avoid crowds, cruises and non-essential air travel.

Sabbath is a high spiritual celebration for all of us and we want to continue to worship in the Lord and have fellowship with our congregation. However, we also want to ensure our congregation is healthy so we will be canceling live services, including sabbath school for the next 2 weeks. We encourage you to tune into Facebook live at https://www.facebook.com/celebrationsda/ to remotely watch services over the next few weeks.  The spread of the coronavirus and recommendations are frequently being updated and as such we will keep you updated regarding any additional changes to our services or public events.  However, it is extremely important that you keep up to date on the virus and ensure you take necessary steps to protect yourself and your family by visiting a reputable website like the CDC or a reliable news source.

The link to the CDC website is below and contains a wealth of information about those at risk, steps to preventing illness, what to do if you do have symptoms etc. You can also call AdventHealth Coronavirus Information Line at 877-VIRUSHQ (877-847-8747) or go to the AdventHealth website below to get additional information.

While the service will be non-traditional, we are certain that the Lord will bless this time we have together, even if it is remotely!
