On Friday, our President stated that he is opening the churches to begin worship services once again, and called on all governors to follow suit. A few hours later the Governor of Illinois announced that on May 29th, he is releasing churches to have outdoor and drive-in services. With these encouraging communications from our governmental leaders, Southern View Chapel is planning an outdoor worship service next Sunday, May 31st, at 10 a.m.
We will meet directly behind the newer wing on the southeast side of the church. Our platform will face in the general direction of the parking lot, allowing those who wish to stay in their cars the ability to participate in our worship time. We ask you to praise the Lord with us for this development and to pray for excellent weather next Sunday. More information will be coming next week and can be viewed on our SVC Family network. All other services will continue to be canceled, as stated in the announcement below. This announcement has been on our website since the beginning of the mandated lockdown.
Due to COVID-19, we have canceled all of our services and activities until further notice.
To minister the Word to you during these unusual times, we will offer several livestream opportunities each week. On Wednesday nights at 6:30, Pastor Gary will be teaching, and Thursday evenings at 6:30, Pastor Brian will be teaching from biblical texts pertinent for times such as these. We invite everyone to tune in both days. We will continue to have Sunday morning messages at 10 a.m. each week during the lockdown. You can access these messages and teachings on our website (https://www.svchapel.org/livestream/).
We invite you to use our church app for up-to-date information, as well as upcoming birthdays and anniversaries. Also, please remember, our ministry expenses do not diminish, even though we are unable to meet. We encourage you to continue to remember us in your giving. You can give online here: https://www.svchapel.org/members/giving/.
None of us know how all of this will play out over the coming weeks, but we take great comfort in knowing that God does. He has not been caught off-guard by the Coronavirus, or the fall-out that accompanies it. Perhaps He is at work reminding a world which thinks they do not need Him, of His sovereign majesty. Our trust is in Him. He has proven trustworthy in the past, and He will show Himself trustworthy again.
