Due to the social distancing guidelines set by the state and federal governments, our church building will remain closed through April 26. We will be continuing with online services and will pursue additional ways to stay connected with one another during this time.

UPDATE 3/22/20:

UPDATE 3/18/20:
As our church leadership continues to make decisions about upcoming events and gatherings, we have agreed to cancel all church events through March 22. As we move forward, further cancellations will be warranted and we will keep you apprised. Many of our ministry leaders are seeking ways to connect to their groups through digital and creative interactions. This is a time to be flexible and a time to take the unique opportunities we have been given to reflect, pray, care, and lead.   

  • Take time to be in His word and plant yourself in His truth.
  • Pray for our leaders, workers, communities, and family members.
  • Care for those around you. Check in on members of our congregation, friends and neighbors. Offer help, if you can. People will always remember how you treated them during a crisis.
  • Lead others by example. Yes, these are uncertain times, but our hope, rest and peace is found in Jesus Christ. Your faith can be a living example and comfort to those around you.  

We have a team in place currently working to have Pastor Morris to deliver a virtual message at 10:30 am this Sunday. We will be expanding our online capabilities as we move forward. More information about this Sunday’s message will be coming.

Even though the church office is closed this week, all of our staff is accessible by email for your questions or concerns.
Cedar Run is more than a building. We are family and here to support, encourage, and love one another. We also know this might be a difficult time for some and we are here for you:

UPDATE (3/16/20):
As a continuation of our efforts to be responsible in response to the concerns of the coronavirus, we are cancelling ALL events at the church through this Sunday, March 22.

Leadership is currently working on ways for Pastor Morris to deliver a virtual message this Sunday.

The church office will be closed this week. However, all of our staff is accessible by email, if you have any questions or concerns.


UPDATE (3/14/20):
Many have asked whether we have the capability on those Sundays when we do not meet (like tomorrow), for the church to live stream the service with a message from Pastor Morris. We do not currently have that capability but are looking into ways we could provide something in the future should we continue to need to avoid gathering together in a large group.
 
In the meantime, Pastor Morris reminds us to use this time to exalt the Lord Jesus in your homes and to remember that none of what is going on has caught God by surprise. He is in control and will use this time of our uncertainty to draw us closer to Him if we will just seek Him in the midst of it. (Romans 8:28)
 
Remember the words of the Apostle Paul in Philippians 4:6-7:
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.”


UPDATE (3/13/20):
Out of an abundance of caution and in an effort to support the safety of our congregation and local communities, we have decided NOT to hold Training Ground or our Worship Service on this upcoming Sunday, March 15.

As we continue to pray through and seek God’s direction, we will keep you informed of other events going forward. Please be watching for further updates. We will also keep our website and Facebook page updated. 

From Pastor David Morris:
Even though we are not meeting together this weekend, do not allow Satan to win the victory. I encourage you to continue to seek Him personally. Please use Sunday morning as a time to worship our Lord in your personal and family time together. You can still worship Him, seek His face, and dig into His Word. 

“This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.”
Psalm 118:24


UPDATE (3/12/20):
We want you to know that we are continuing to carefully monitor and pray over the current situation with COVID-19. We are actively taking steps to mitigate risks for our church community.

Currently, we have decided to cancel our Friday Knights meeting scheduled for tomorrow, March 13. At this time, we are still planning to hold our Sunday service while seeking ways to ensure our environment is safe for all who attend.

We know circumstances are changing rapidly and we are doing our best to stay proactive.


UPDATE (3/11/20):
With the concerns surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19), we want to let you know how Cedar Run is responding.

Our church leadership is closely monitoring updates from the Centers for Disease Control and the World Health Organization regarding COVID-19. We will continue to seek guidance from these agencies and public health officials, and we will update you as new information becomes available. We are committed to providing a safe environment for our church family.

As of now, we will continue to hold our Training Ground and Worship services on Sundays. If there is any change, we will update our website and Facebook page.

Our church building will also be open during the week, as usual. If there is any change, we will update our website and Facebook page.

During our First Sunday services, we will be using pre-packaged elements as a safer way to serve communion.

In addition, we encourage everyone to take commonsense precautions and consider creative interactions (like elbow bumping or waving instead of handshaking).

While we place importance on gathering together as a church community and we want you to feel welcome, if you are feeling sick or running a fever, the best way that you can love your neighbor is by staying home!  

We encourage everyone to take steps to protect themselves and others from the coronavirus, flu, and other illnesses. The CDC recommends the following everyday preventive actions (best practices):

  • Hand-washing (for at least 20 seconds) is your best self-defense against the spread of germs.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Please stay home if you are not feeling well, especially if you have a fever, are coughing or sneezing or are experiencing shortness of breath.

As we all try to stay informed and cautious, it is important NOT to promote fear or panic. Use today as an example to trust in God – pray for the sick around the world (and wash your hands). May it never be said that God’s people are governed more by fear than faith.
