Wake Chapel Family,
As promised in our previous announcement on Friday, March 13, here is new information regarding the changes we are making in cooperation with the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services' most recent guidelines for closures and gathering restrictions.
Wake Chapel has canceled all regularly scheduled services and events until further notice. All other official Wake Chapel events scheduled between today, March 18, and the lifting of Governor Roy Cooper’s Executive Order, will not meet as scheduled. We will assess, in due time, whether we can reschedule these events.
Sunday morning worship services will continue to be live-streamed using a link you can find at www.wakechapelchurch.org. Our worship bulletin will be available on our website as well.
We are currently working diligently to provide a means for you to connect with your Sunday school class via an electronic meeting space. Your Sunday school teachers will contact you by email when this option is up and running—perhaps even by this coming Lord’s Day. On your end, this connection will require Internet service and some form of computer (desktop or laptop computer, tablet, or smartphone). We are also working hard to make this experience as user-friendly as we possibly can.
To the extent possible, staff members will work on campus or remotely. We will follow health department guidelines to minimize their exposure to virus risk.
At this time, our building remains open during normal business hours, from 9am to 4pm Mon-Fri, and pastoral and administrative staff is working to continue to care for the needs of our congregation. Telephone access is NOT affected.
We trust you will make every effort to join us for our live stream this Sunday, even though we will be in our homes separately instead of in our church together. Consider sharing our service link with other Christians who are not able to meet at their churches. In the weeks to come I plan to resume our studies in the Gospel of John leading up to the week of Easter.
Please pray together for our governing officials, state and local authorities, medical and emergency services, doctors, scientists, healthcare professionals and supply chain workers, that God might use this occasion, not only to deepen our commitment to Him, but also to draw people to His Son Jesus.
