TCON Coronavirus Updates:

 


TCON Status update - Wednesday March 18th update --

March 18, 2020

 

 Good Morning Church,

 

Trust you’re all doing well. Last night, the church board had an emergency meeting to discuss the new information and recommendations coming from the CDC, the President of the United States, and the General Church. 

 

 The CDC is recommending no gatherings of 50 or more people for 8 weeks. The Federal Government is recommending no gatherings of 10 or more people. The General Church has asked all churches to not meet, in person, for the next 15 days. With all the new information coming daily, the board unanimously made these decisions:

 

 1.     Beginning this Sunday, March 22, 2020, and going through April 5, 2020, our morning worship will be live streaming only. There will be no worship gathering here. After April 5, 2020, the board will evaluate what we can do at that point. Our live stream will begin at 10:45 a.m. each Sunday morning for the next 3 weeks. With Pastor Todd being out of town this weekend, the  praise team will not be playing. Pastor Todd will contact each of you when he returns next week to detail plans moving forward.

 

 2.     The Men’s breakfast scheduled for Saturday, March 21, has been cancelled.

 

 3.     TCON’s Easter Egg Hunt scheduled for Saturday, April 4, has been cancelled.

 

 4.     The ladies quilting group, meeting on Wednesdays, has been suspended for now.

 

 5.     The Financial Peace University class being held on Thursday evening has been suspended for now.

 

 What can we do to stay connected? Check in on each other. We will begin posting a weekly devotional on the church Facebook page. Reach out to our shut-ins by phone to see how they’re doing. Have a couple people over for a night of games. Have a ‘cottage prayer’ night in your home. (keep the number under 10)

 

 God is good! He is aware of everything going on around His creation. There’s peace and comfort in that truth. Though we won’t be meeting face to face in the building, there are still costs and bills that will continue to take place. We need an average of $3,900 weekly to keep things moving as they are.

 

 We are asking, as part of our worship, for those who write checks for tithes and offerings, to send your check to the church: (the mail will be gathered daily)

 

Tecumseh Church of the Nazarene

1001 N. Union Street

Tecumseh, MI 49286

 

 Another option… check with your banking institution to see if they offer automatic bill pay. You can set your tithe or offering to be mailed directly to the church from that institution.

 

 Another option… the church is going to put in place, as quickly as we can, on-line giving. One would then be able give through our web site or download an app on your phone and give your tithes and offering electronically.

 

 This is uncharted waters for all of us. It may seem like waves are crashing over the side of the boat. Let’s keep in mind, we’re not in the boat alone. Jesus is with us and Jesus saves!

 

 Be encouraged, 

 TCON Church Board / Pastor Gary
