Hello, Covenant Love Family,
Tava and I are constantly praying for you as we deal with the COVID-19 crisis we are facing in our nation and world. Many are dealing with fear and uncertainty, but God has given us a mission to Minister HOPE and FAITH. We are utilizing all of our Social Media platforms to preach the Gospel as we adhere to orders issued by our State and Local officials. Just last Sunday, across our various social media platforms, we had 20 people who either raised their hand virtually or commented that they were praying the prayer of salvation with us! We may not be able to meet in a building, but the gospel is still going out and people are still being saved!
We, along with our staff, are looking daily for even more ways to stay connected. As such, we have begun making phone calls to everyone in the congregation to see how you are doing and offer prayer. We are also using this time to update our database with the most recent contact information for you so that in the event of things like we are facing now, we can get out important information to you as well as be able to check on you and your families. Please note that while we are asking for updated contact information so that we can stay connected, our staff will never ask you for any financial information. If you receive a phone call like that, please know that is not from us. We haven’t had any reports of that, however we wanted to make sure you were aware that we would never call for those purposes or post on pages like GoFundMe me.
Because of the Governor’s Statewide Stay at Home Order, our CL staff has moved to working from home and our CL on-campus crew is essential personnel only. We assure you that although in the flesh we have moved, CL is still open for business. You can contact us by phone or email Monday – Thursday, from 9 am – 5 pm and online daily. Our prayer lines are open during our weekend services.
In addition to streaming our Sunday Service at 8:30am and 11:00am, we will now be rebroadcasting Sundays at 2:00pm and 7:00pm. We also have lots of new and amazing things available for you to tune into during the week on our various social media platforms! Check out the video below to find out more!
If you haven’t already been joining us for all the awesome things Pastor Chris just shared, or you want to go back and listen to some of your favorite live moments from the past few weeks, we have all of them archived Here!
Today was a powerful time of prayer and worship on our live stream of Good Morning, CL. I exhorted those viewing as I want to exhort you now: It’s reported that the COVID-19 virus can’t live in temperatures above 80 degrees and I started to think, “Let’s keep the fire burning!” Let the wind of the Holy Spirit blow upon our houses and in our houses! Everyone is running around talking about catching the virus, well I’m telling everyone, CATCH THE FIRE of the Holy Spirit of the living God! Amen?! Let’s continue to pray and exercise our authority over the powers of darkness and see this thing destroyed at the root!
We want to thank you for your continued faithfulness to give. It’s because of this that we are able to continue everything the Lord is having us do to preach the gospel and reach those that are lost. We have many ways for you to continue to give and support Covenant Love. If you need more info, please refer to the list below or call the CL Office (910 – 323 – 1515):
Credit Card Gifts & Drop Offs: You can give your credit card information over the phone; please call the church office and we will connect you to our secure financial department. If you would like to drop off your gift, please call first so that we can give you instructions on how to do that. You can request tithe envelopes Here if you prefer to mail your gift in.
Don’t forget to get connected so that you receive updates! Just text clupdate to 97000 or join our Covenant Love Facebook Group. You can also find updates and alerts on our website at – mycl.church/emergency.
Finally, we want to assure you that we are here for you and our phone lines are still open to receive your prayer requests and praise reports (M-Th 9am-5pm). You can also send them online Here. As always, you are our top priority at Covenant Love and we will remain as connected as possible during this season. You are in our hearts and our prayers always.
Tava and I Love you very much and miss seeing you face to face, and our prayers are for that to change very soon!
