FCF Coronavirus (COVID-19) Response
As of March 13, 2020
FCF UPDATE REGARDING CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)
As we all know, we are experiencing some kind of global crisis with the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak.
We as a church have been praying together ever since and we know the Lord's hand is on this situation. It is our desire as a church to navigate through this public health crisis wisely and responsibly.
As of Thursday, March 12, 2020, the Mayor of LA has "directed" all city events, meetings, and community gatherings "with 50 or more" participants to temporarily postpone and/or cancel gatherings until the end of March (unless otherwise announced). We at FCF fall under this category as a local church body. With that, we will adhere to these temporary recommendations to make sure every person at FCF is of utmost safety per our county's guidelines.
So since the Sunday of March 15:
We have been having our Sunday Worship Celebration ONLINE via LIVE STREAMING (on Facebook and Instagram) at our usual time, 10:30 AM. There will be no services provided temporarily at our physical church location in North Hollywood. This will continue until further notice.
To make sure that everyone's set up and ready for best and undistracted online worship experience, we suggest preparing and testing the systems and devices you want to use--Bibles, phones, laptops, earphones, and speakers way prior to our worship schedule. We suggest that families watch and join the worship altogether.
If you would like any assistance in setting up any of these--from your streaming connections to your giving options--please reach out to us so we can guide you through it.
Praise God, the church is never about the building, but us--the people. We can still worship Jesus together in a very unique way as we go through these unknown times together as a church family.
Our Prayer Team is still available to pray with you. If you would like prayer, please reach out to us on Facebook and we will have someone call you for prayer on the phone.
As the days go by, we will keep you notified on any new updates via GroupMe and on social media. We're planning to use a platform where we can see each other--all of us.
Please stay tuned. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to reach out to any of our staff or servant-leaders.
Let's continue to lift each other up in prayer during this time. Please stay safe and continue to abide by the sanitary guidelines provided by the LA Public Health and by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
We desire to stay connected as a church family in the best possible way available to us. We love you, FCF! We are praying to see God turn this around for His glory and for the good of His people.
We hope to "see" you ONLINE this Sunday @ 10:30 AM. God bless.
