In the circumstance of COVID-19, many things around us have changed. Based on ‘Quarantine,’ our daily life has changed completely. Accordingly, our faith life in the church has also changed. Sungrak Church has handled well with the social distancing policy declared by the government. Therefore, the church announced to restrict saints’ and visitors’ entry, also cancelled face to face group meetings and changed to an online service and group meeting. However, Sungrak people are not afraid, discouraged, or threatened by circumstances, somewhat encouraging and comforting each other. They continue well in faith life with an online meeting (for ex. Group Bible Study) in addition to an online service.
Even the saints are not free to go to the church. They are making a great effort through prayer, offering, and determine to become God’s beloved church for the Holy Spirit to work with ‘One Mind and One Will’. It makes Sungrak Church stand firm with Overseer Sung-Hyun Kim to restore the church not disturbed by any circumstances. Sungrak Church is obedient to God’s command, “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely, I am with you always, to the very end of the age”(Matthew 28:19-20). Thus, continue to send various translated work written by Senior Overseer Ki-Dong Kim and service videos to Worldwide and never stop spiritual exchange.
According to that, from the ones who received the books and online service, the letters of gratitude and testimony have received in Sungrak Mission Center. The messages included that they were able to have the right perspectives by the books, and even if they faced difficulty due to COVID-19, they are overcoming. World Bereans sent plenty of letters that expressed gratitude to God, the way of the spiritual growth through God’s word, how to serve the church, practical advice for online service, and appreciation to Senior-Overseer and Overseer. For the bright future, Sungrak Church will stand firm, obedient to the Lord’s command until He comes and continues to spread God’s word to the World. Therefore, wait for Bereans’ spiritual growth and successful faith life with the Holy Spirit under God’s protection.
Sister thank you for asking. The members are safe until now. We just pray each other. How ‘s Sungrak Church?
We all should stay social distancing until the end of this month. The update news in our country has 579 positive covid 19 and 49 has died. Around our area, there 4 persons are positive COVID 19.
Pastor has got intimation from police to all churches not hold any activity that gather large amount of people. 22 March,this Sunday, we still hold Sunday Service like usual eventhough several churches has online service.
But for 29 March, next Sunday we are considering about online service from home. Tomorrow we will have online meeting with the local shepherd. Is there any advice from mother church for our church about this situation?
We are not that panic about covid 19 but due to police intimation, we need to take action.
May God bless us always.
