COVID-19 Elder Update

These are interesting and unprecedented times.  The coronavirus is gaining everyone’s attention including the leadership of New Heights Siloam.  As we prepare for the possible outbreak in this area, we have been praying for wisdom and direction from God.  After meeting with the elders, we have decided the following: 

  • We will not be meeting at the school over the next two weeks.  We are not overcome with fear, but we do want to take your health and safety seriously as well as that of our community.  
  • Since our Gospel Community Groups are the core of our church, we encourage you to meet with your group at the discretion of your group leader.  Please use your judgment on attending, and stay home if you or anyone in your family has experienced cold or flu-like symptoms.   
  • The elders and I will meet again next week as we monitor the situation.  We will continue to monitor and reevaluate the situation and create an extended plan as necessary.  
“A scared world needs a fearless church.”  AW Tozer

I encourage you to meet this moment with faith and not fear and to share the hope and peace of Jesus with fearful friends, family, and neighbors. 

  • Pray for the sick, 
  • Check on those in need,
  • Pray for the doctors and nurses that are on the front lines, 
  • Most of all Pray that we would meet this moment like Jesus.  

Our mission to love God passionately and love people tangibly

In faith, not fear. 

Tim and the elders
