Outdoor Prayer Service for the Vision of the Church
4:00 p.m. Wednesdays
As part of the work of this interim period, we are entering a period of discernment of the vision of CPC. The community is invited to come together Wednesdays for outdoor, in-person prayer for the vision of the church. You must pre-register to attend. Twenty slots are available. Each person must register separately.
We will begin promptly at 4:00 and leave by 4:20. We will meet in the farthest-back parking lot of the church. Please park on the side facing Harris Teeter.
By registering you agree to abide by these terms:
- Only registered attendees will be allowed into the prayer space.
- Everyone will wear a mask.
- Everyone will maintain minimum physical distance of 6 feet.
- No one but the pastor will enter the building for any reason. (If you can’t go 30 minutes without a bathroom, please join us in spirit only.)
- You are welcome to bring a chair.
- Anyone with any symptoms of illness (including seasonal allergies) will stay home.
If you are not able to join us in person, please join us in spirit by praying for the vision of the church at 4:00 p.m. on Wednesdays wherever you are.
We know that all things work together for good
for those who love God,
who are called according to his purpose.
Dear Members and Friends,
After careful consideration, the session voted last night to suspend all in-person meetings in the church building until April 1. This includes Sunday worship, small group gatherings, and committee meetings. The session and I will reassess the situation on April 1, and let you know what we decide.
You may have seen this graph from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which shows how early action reduces the incidence and intensity of infection in epidemics like the current one.More people will still get sick, but by implementing protective measures early, we can decrease that number and slow the rate of infection. By suspending in-person gatherings at CPC, we are doing our part to flatten the infection curve. This is the most important thing we can do to help our healthcare system and our neighbor.
The one exception to this suspension is the dinner that we are scheduled to provide for the FACETS Hypothermia Shelter at Pender UMC next Friday, March 20. Those arrangements are proceeding as planned. Contact Elder Nyambi Nyambi with any questions.
To keep us connected through this period of social distance, we will use our website, our Facebook page (Christ Presbyterian Church, Fairfax), and our email list. Your deacon will also be calling you, so please note their name and number in case you have a pastoral need.
Please join me on Facebook Sunday mornings at 10:30, when I will live stream a scripture reading, reflection, and prayer. You will be able to contribute your own thoughts and prayers by commenting on the stream. Either click on the link that will be on www.CPCFairfax.org, or go straight to the Christ Presbyterian Church, Fairfax page in Facebook.
I can also schedule Zoom meetings so that people may meet virtually. If you would like to schedule a meeting for your group, please let me know.
We have never been through a crisis like this before, so we may need to experiment with different approaches to find what works best for our community. Please be flexible, and bear each other and me with grace and patience. Remember that we are assured that we can do all things through Christ Jesus, who strengthens us (Philippians 4:13).
