LCC Response To
Dear Liverpool Family,
At LCC, we want to care for our congregation in all respects, including the physical well-being of our community. To that end we are asking you, our family, to take precautions to keep yourself and others safe, especially in light of recent developments with the coronavirus (COVID-19).
We know that is a lot of conflicting information out there and we suggest using the CDC and Department of Health for information. We do not feel there is a cause to panic or create fear in others. We do think education and preparation is important. That means following the advice and regulations of our government.
Jesus told us to love our neighbors as ourselves. That means staying home at this time. Your neighbors need you to do this—especially your elderly neighbors, your neighbors who work at hospitals, your neighbors with chronic illnesses, and your neighbors who may not have the means or the time to prepare because of lack of resources or time.
For now church will be streaming on Facebook, Youtube, and found on our sermons page. When church does return to gathering at LCC there are many precautions we have taken to keep the church clean and safe.
We will keep you updated on changes as we navigate through all this. For now all services will be online.
Current evidence indicates that the risk of severe illness increases with age. The highest risk group are those 80 years and older. People with underlying medical problems, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer, chronic lung disease, and immunosuppression, are also likely at higher risk.
According to the Center for Disease Control, young children are among the least susceptible. However, they possible can carry the virus without you knowing.
The best way to help stop the spread of the virus is to follow these common-sense guidelines:
1. STAY CLEAN.
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use the elbow bump rather than handshake as a greeting. If you sneeze or cough, please use a tissue or handkerchief.
2. STAY HOME.
Unless you must work, go to the doctor, or get groceries
3. STAY CALM.
Constantly checking the headlines and worrying about getting sick can have the unintended effect of robbing you of sleep and driving up your stress. That makes you more vulnerable to illness, not to mention fear-driven hysteria. Let go of “anticipatory anxiety”.
4. STAY CONNECTED to LCC.
I encourage you to worship with us online, invite your friends, keep connecting with your groups, find ways to serve others, and give online.
We are aware that some of our more at risk family members may need to stay fully isolated. If that is the case and there are needs that we can assist with please fill out our form below.
