COVID-19 Updates

Hi Tygers Family!

In light of the recent concerns about the spread of COVID-19 virus and the subsequent communication from our President regarding the various safety precautions being implemented by Cabinet, we want you to know that our Leadership Team has met to discuss practical implications for our operation as a church.

Church will continue; but it will look a little different than what we are used to. We will stream our church service online, on different platforms to make sure you can be part of church every Sunday!

Before we get into the details of the plans, we want to speak first to our approach as Christ followers.

 

FACTS, FEAR & FAITH

As people of faith, we don’t ignore the facts. We are to act with wisdom. For many, the spread of this virus has caused fear and anxiety. Scripture is clear that God has given us a spirit of love, not fear. Our prayer is that we would sense peace in the midst of these circumstances. Our help comes from the Lord. This does not mean we should be careless or reactionary; rather, may we work together to serve our church and community in a way that demonstrates faith and trust in our God who is in control.

 

CHURCH SERVICES

Our church service will be streamed on Sundays at 08:30 and 10:00, on Church Online, this platform will allow you to interact with our hosts, request prayer and be part of our online community! Church is still happening – just in your homes.

VIEW KIDS

Our Team has prepared material for our children to be able to engage with God and His Word at home. Please visit our View Kids page to view the lesson, activities and craft for this week.

VIEW GROUPS

View Groups will not meet during the next 21 days while South Africa is on full lockdown, it is important that groups stay connected and support one another in this challenging time. We recommend using Whatsapp and video calls to stay connected and encourage each other.

ELDERLY & VULNERABLE

We strongly recommend that anyone who has a compromised immune system or is elderly practices self-isolation. We also ask that as a caring Christian community we see how we can serve those who need assistance, getting their essential groceries, prescriptions, etc.

 

COMMUNITY

Not gathering together does not mean an absence of community. Social distancing may be necessary at this time, but we want to remain socially connected. Think not only what’s best for your family, but what is best for your community. Consider who is vulnerable in your sphere of influence. We have the opportunity to experience God and community in a new way and to bring hope to others.

 

We encourage you to take some time to understand proper prevention measures to avoid spreading the virus. Here are some of the basic measures:

  • Stay home at all times, only go outside when absolutely necessary.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipes.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if your hands are visibly dirty.
  • Be friendly and greet others with smiles and waves instead of handshakes or hugs.


Stay informed. Stay connected.

 

We will provide necessary updates to you via social media and email. We ask that you be prayerful for our world and community, specifically for those who are directly impacted by this virus.

Prayerfully,
Dino, Kelly & the Leadership of View Church
