Thursday afternoon Governor Roy Cooper issued a directive that all gatherings above 100 persons should be canceled. In light of this announcement, Wake Chapel will be closed on Sunday, March 15 and all in-person events will be canceled. This decision includes Sunday School, Awana, as well as our Wednesday evening service, along with other meetings and events between today and next Thursday March 19.
However, we WILL be live-streaming a morning worship service. I plan to preach from our pulpit this Sunday and hope that you will join us via live stream for worship at 10:30am.
Please check our website at www.wakechapelchurch.org for the link to our live video before our service on Sunday.
Canceling these services was a very difficult decision for us, but we have been guided by two principles: (1) honoring our governing officials, who have urged extreme caution, and (2) loving our neighbors, many of whom, like the elderly or those with prior medical conditions, are particularly vulnerable to COVID-19.
As concerns increase this week surrounding the coronavirus, we are committed to doing whatever we can to provide a safe environment for you and your family. Our leadership is keeping a close watch on all concerns related to this unprecedented health event. We will update you with information on further church events by the middle of next week at the latest.
