Decatur Church of Christ Family,

As shepherds, we deeply care for our family’s spiritual and physical well-being, and we constantly lift you up in prayer.  The events of the last several weeks regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19) have caused concern for many.   We want you to know that we are diligently monitoring this quickly evolving situation. 

As I’m sure you are now aware, we made the decision to cancel our worship services.  We want to clarify how we came to that conclusion.  Metroplex counties have implemented CDC guidelines over the past few days, which include suspending gatherings over 250 people.  The CEO of Wise Health System issued a statement requesting that all entities in Wise County adopt the CDC guidelines as well.  At this point, there are no confirmed cases in Wise County.  However, we want to join with our neighbors and respect that request.  We believe this is a time for precaution and not panic.   Our decisions have been prayerful, made not out of fear, but out of love for you and our community.

This Sunday, we urge you to log in to our Facebook page for a devotional thought from Rick and then spend worship time with your family.   We believe it is likely that we will continue this plan for a period of time, so look for further communication in the days to come.  Our desire is that we stay connected, even as we temporarily suspend assemblies.  And most importantly, we want all of us to lean into the Lord for our certain refuge during this time of uncertainty.

Thank you so much for your understanding.  Jesus asked us not to worry about earthly things, but we want to be sensible about this season.  As we attempt to exercise wisdom in these circumstances, we trust in our Lord above all.  For now, we pray for those suffering from COVID-19, and for God to be merciful in containing the further spread of this virus.  Further, we pray that these events will cause all mankind to rely on our Lord.

We know that one day Jesus the Christ will renew all things, eliminating suffering and disease, but until that day, may our Master find us busy serving Him in this broken world.

Grace and Peace in our Lord,

Your Shepherds


We believe that God has brought you here because you have special gifts with which to build up his body. We want you to find your place so that your life can bring blessing and encouragement to others.
