COVID-19 Update

From Pastors Frank Sr and Jr:

We are obligated to obey governing authorities as long as it doesn’t contradict God’s Word. (Rom 13:1 Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. 2 Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves.)

For this reason we as a church are following the mandated guidelines and not having gatherings over 10. However this does not take away from our responsibility to minister to the flock. God has appointed Pastor Frank Jr., and myself to be the shepherds of the flock that meets at Berean Calvary Chapel to help keep the flock together. (Matt 9:36 But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd.)

Monday evening, and Tuesday morning I heard from the Lord to not distance myself from the flock but to shepherd them in different ways. I believe the flock needs more comfort and guidance than ever before. This is a time for all believers to be sobered in realizing how fast our world can change, and the importance and necessity of making the adjustments necessary to be effective in ministering to a confused world.

This is not a time to hide away in the cave of our personal security, but a time to minister in different ways until this ban is lifted. We need to see this development as an opportunity, not a road block. I believe this has sobered many people and might cause them to look for answers, and the only real answer is Jesus. This is not a surprise to God, in fact He foretold of times like this, and it is just one more reason we must lift up our heads.

Actions We’re Taking:

We will continue our live broadcast on Facebook and the BCC website for Sunday morning services at 9 and 11 as usual and the audio broadcast and podcast will also be available after each service is ended. In addition to this, we’ll be trying something new for Wednesday night Bible studies.
