The fear and uncertainty surrounding the current spread of the COVID-19 virus is really unprecedented, and the recommendations are literally changing on a daily basis. As a pastor, I want to honor the Lord in obeying His command that we not forsake meeting together as a church (Heb. 10:25), but I also understand that this virus is very real, and that it is a genuine threat to the members of our congregation. Alameda County, of which San Leandro is a part, is under a mandatory shelter-in-place order, so we are legally prohibited from holding any services or activities on our property until this order is lifted. I wish this were not the case, but I am hopeful we will be able to resume our ministry here soon. In the meantime, please join with me in praying for those impacted by this virus.
Although the State of California has given the okay for churches to reopen, this permission is conditional upon county approval. We have not yet received approval from the Alameda County Health Department, so we are not yet able to open for worship.
Please check back here for any updates, and continue to pray for the medical professionals battling this virus!
