"FOR GOD HAS NOT GIVEN US A SPIRIT OF FEAR, BUT OF POWER AND LOVE AND A SOUND MIND."
-2 TIMOTHY 1:7
March 20, 2020
Jubilee Christian Church is a house of prayer and we are praying for divine health and healing. As a ministry, we take your health and safety very seriously. In accordance with the guidelines set by Governor Charlie Baker, Jubilee Christian Church has canceled all weekly ministry meetings and services. However, we are inviting everyone to join our worship service experience via all of our streaming platforms. Please review the health measures that we are taking and adhere to the basic health instructions provided:
STEPS WE ARE TAKING:
We remain in contact with local health and governmental officials. We will continue to monitor the the progression of Covid-19 (Coronavirus) day by day and keep you informed.
We are actively reviewing contingency response plans should COVID-19 impact our ministries, our team members, or those we serve.
We have implemented an even more aggressive strategy as it relates to cleaning our facilities. In addition to our intense cleaning procedures and schedule, we have hired an outside specialist to employ Electrostatic Disinfection in all of our campuses. More information on the impact of this unique and effective method will be provided upon request.
STEPS YOU CAN TAKE:
STAY HOME IF YOU'RE FEELING SICK
Be alert to the signs of fever and any other cold/flu-like symptoms. Stay at home if you are ill, except to get medical care. Stay in touch with your doctor. Call before you get medical care. Be sure to get care if you feel worse or you think it is an emergency.
COVER COUGHS & SNEEZES
Viruses are thought to spread mainly from person to person in respiratory droplets of coughs and sneezes. Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow. Throw used tissues in the trash. Immediately wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, clean your hands with a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
IMPROVE HAND HYGIENE & MINIMIZE FACE CONTACT
Viruses also spread via contaminated hands. Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry. Avoid rubbing your eyes and unnecessary touching of the face.
Look for updates from the Center for Disease Control and your local news. Jubilee Christian Church will continue to provide you with updated information.
We thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation. Be safe and walk in prayer and health in the name of Jesus!
