As you know, Word Of Life NW is committed to reaching out to our community. In addition to your spiritual health, we remain focused on your emotional, mental and physical health. We assure you that we are fully aware of (COVID-19) Coronavirus-related concerns and we are monitoring the situation closely.
As followers of Jesus, when faced with a situation like this, we must make fear-free, faith-filled decisions. We are partnering with our city and state to contain COVID-19. So, after much prayer and in consultation with our leadership team, we have decided to have church online.
What Do we Know About the Coronavirus or COVID-19?
The coronavirus is a novel respiratory disease that has been spreading globally since late 2019. It presents a threat due to its newness, its contagiousness, and the lack of a vaccine or a clear treatment plan. The World Health Organization, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Public Health Agency of Canada, and local health officials are the trusted sources for the most accurate information, as well as updates on the status of vaccines and treatments (which are in development). The coronavirus's health risk to date appears to be comparable to that of influenza, which many of us have experienced.
With the recent media coverage around coronavirus (COVID-19), we want to assure you that Word Of Life NW is prepared to address any potential impact on our community, should it become necessary.
To this date, the Center for Disease Control has recommended the cancellation of all public events, including our weekly services, Bible studies, and events. Our church will remain closed as we follow local and state health officials recommend closure. We will inform everyone through phone messages, emails, and our website or our social media profiles if anything changes.
Below is a video from Pastor Isaac Jacobs explaining our new Church online schedule.

Here are a few things I'm asking our Word of Life NW church family to do:
PRAY for our county and our world as we navigate through this together. Pray for a move of God in our community through our online services, pray for all those affected by the coronavirus medically, emotionally, financially, and spiritually, and pray that people would turn to Jesus in this time in record numbers. GIVE generously online at our online giving page. With so much spiritual and financial need around us, now is the time to give so that we can continue to shine brightly in our community.
Please stay tuned to your email, our social media and the Word of Life website for more updates as this situation develops. We hope to keep you connected with your Church family.
We encourage you to take care of yourself and your family, and above all else, to trust God throughout this process as we know that He did not give us the spirit of fear, according to 2 Timothy 1:7. Please join us as we continue to pray for protection, healing, and wisdom. I have full confidence in God and trusting what he has said to us in His word. Know that we are praying for you!
