This is Pastor Tommy and I wanted to take a moment to share an update with everyone as we currently find ourselves in a situation that has never before been encountered. I believe it is clear we all are in uncharted territory and we are all trying to make decisions based on the best knowledge available. As Christians we live by faith and we must not forget the importance of faith no matter what storms surround us. At the same time the Scriptures make it clear that wisdom and especially Godly wisdom is to be valued. We want to use the wisdom God has given us and remember that faith and wisdom work together. In Matthew 10:16 Jesus told us to be “wise as serpents and innocent as doves.” At Light On A Hill it is our desire to apply wisdom while we walk in faith.
With that understanding we have decided to temporarily suspend all services and meetings at the church for the next few weeks. The Governor of Texas has asked that residents avoid social gatherings of 10 or more people. After prayerful consideration we feel it would be wise for us to avoid gathering for a short period of time while facing a world-wide crisis as never faced before. We will be keeping everyone updated via text messages, social media, our website, and phone calls.
It is my plan to record a weekly message and post the podcast on the website and I encourage each of you to listen. This would be a great opportunity to gather as a family to worship and listen to the podcast together. We may be socially isolated but we must remain spiritually and emotionally close together as a Church Body. If any of you have specific concerns or needs please contact me and we as a church will work together to help one another.
I believe this is an opportunity not only for us as a church but as a nation to draw closer to God. There is one thing that is always certain in times of uncertainty and that is simply God is still God, He is still on his throne, and He holds everything in his hands. This is not a time for panic but a time to apply wisdom and walk in faith.
Please continue to spend time seeking God and His word. Be in prayer for our community, our nation, and the world. Pray for our government and our leaders and pray that God will give them wisdom as they face very difficult decisions.
Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. 7 Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7
God Bless, -Pastor Tommy
