Gentle Spirit Christian Church’s Response to the Coronavirus/COVID-19

Rev. Paul M. Turner

For all of you that are being impacted by the Coronavirus either physically or economically, directly or indirectly, mine and the Church’s prayers go out to you. This is a difficult, challenging and frightening time for all of us and support from our friends and family is critical to us coming through this.

As for worship on Sunday mornings: We are different from other churches in the sense we are outside and our numbers are smaller. We are not jammed into an enclosed location or packed into pews. So we will continue offering Worship Services in Candler Park.

In addition, remember each week’s message will be posted on our website and on Facebook. Also, please note our expenses do not stop during this time, so if you are not in attendance on Sunday’s your tithes and offerings can be mailed to the church office.

With that said, here is how we will conduct ourselves at our service in the park.

We are taking some common-sense precautions to help protect our community.

First and foremost, we encourage you to follow the CDC’s recommendations about preventing the spread of the virus:

  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, and then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water; if soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. We will make sure there is plenty of these at each service.
  • Additional information can be found here.

The challenges are great, but our God is greater and we will come through this together stronger than ever.

God Bless,
Rev. Paul M. Turner
Senior Pastor
