a message from pastor gary

Until further notice, Life Church Meridian will be having services as usual Sundays at 8:30 & 10:30 a.m. We will also be live-streaming the 10:30 service if you would rather watch from home.

Please read the following message from Pastor Gary concerning the Coronavirus crisis:

We at Life Church Meridian are committed to ensuring your safety, being wise yet not fearful. Since there is growing concern about the spread of the Coronavirus, we want to assure you that we are monitoring the CDC and the MS Department of Health’s recommendations regarding preventative measures to manage the potential spread of COVID-19.

We want everyone to stay healthy and recommend following these guidelines regarding services:

• If you or a family member is sick or have been exposed to someone with the Coronavirus, please stay home.

•Use alternative greetings such as elbow bumps, air high fives or foot taps.

• Wash your hands for 20 seconds (sing the chorus of Way Maker twice) before and after greeting people.

• Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash and use the hand sanitizer provided throughout the facility. Tissues are provided at the end of the rows in the sanctuary.

We are praying for an end to the spread of the COVID-19 and for healing, restoration and protection for all affected. We can’t wait to see you this Sunday!

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."

Philippians 4:6-7 (ESV)
