dr. Shaun's response to Covid-19
Overseer Dr. Shaun Campbell, Senior Pastor
Showers of Blessings family,
Our beloved ministry believes that your health and safety is an extreme priority. We are monitoring developments closely and staying in contact with health agencies and experts to ensure our upcoming worship experiences are safe. Due to the numerous warnings which have been issued by the Center for Disease and Prevention (CDC), Showers of Blessings Faith City Worship Center encourages everyone to heed the advice of the CDC and U.S. State Department.
Campus Cleaning: EVS will focus on extensively preparing for our gatherings by thoroughly performing our cleaning procedures in accordance to our safe and sanitary policies.
Greeting: While we are a family and always excited to embrace each other, we are asking that you keep physical greetings to a minimum by implementing head nods, waves, or by speaking to reduce person to person contact.
Practicing Good Health Habits: As advised by the healthcare professionals, please wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty. Also, refrain from touching your face, mouth, and eyes when in contact with such things as door handles, money, or any potentially contaminated surfaces.
The CDC has recommended that those with weak immune systems and pre-existing health conditions, consider reducing their person-to-person contact. While everyone is welcome in our worship experience, we would like to remind you to exercise great precautions.
In the meantime, consider II Timothy 1:7 which says, “For God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” As believers, we have the authority which Christ has given to us to pray against the spread of any disease and to pray for healing for those who have the coronavirus. We also have the ability through His Spirit to bring peace and comfort amid anxiety and confusion by reaching out to those in need.
Take a moment and look around you. Who are those people in your life that may be thankful for a helping hand during this time? Offer to run errands for those who have high risk health concerns or send a note of encouragement. The tendency is to go into a self-protective mode and isolate; However, we can show others that they are not alone.
Through it all, pray and ask the Lord to point us back to His truth in all we say and do.
We look forward to worshipping with you soon.
Senior Pastor Dr. Shaun Campbell
