On March 27, 2020 the Alabama State Health Officer, Dr. Scott Harris, issued an order suspending certain public gatherings due to risk of infection by COVID-19. The order reads in part:
"Effective March 28, 2020 at 5:00 P.M., all non-work related gatherings of 10 persons or more, or non-work related gatherings of any size that cannot maintain a consistent six-foot distance between persons, are prohibited."
As believers we are instructed in Romans 13:1, "Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God."
Considering the order issued by our State Health Officer, Central Bible Chapel will not publicly meet as a group until the order is lifted and we are once again able to do so. We will continue to seek to honor the Lord by utilizing available resources such as this website and the Chapel's Facebook page (HERE), along with the Facebook pages of those who are part of our gathering of believers, to share ministry from God's Word for both adults and children alike. We appreciate the care and abundance of caution the leaders of our state are taking at this time, and as those who seek to honor God by being obedient to His Word, we honor the requests of those in positions of earthly authority over us.
We are also instructed in 1 Timothy 2:1-3, "I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;"
If you are a believer, please join us in praying for those in authority in our cities, states and our nation at this time. Those whom God has placed in those positions are having to make incredibly important decisions now, and we pray the Lord will guide them and their advisors as those decisions are made.
"Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen." (Ephesians 3:20-21)
