The Church during the days of Corona Virus: Pray for other Churches to be able to meet again

Our little congregation reacted very similarly to Grace Community Church (John MacArthur’s congregation) by initially closing and having online church (live over Zoom with open time after to “meet and greet”), but we reopened in June maintaining online delivery. We are about 50% older and immunodeficient as a congregation, so we knew we needed the online access. I have had a limited number of meetings with the youth group as we plan for the future. But, like GCC and other churches, we know we are “not to give up meeting together as some are in the habit of doing” (Hebrews 10:25) while living in a state (Arizona) that has decided to not put restrictions on religious institutions (due to the First Amendment of the federal Constitution). We also agree that this is an individual church decision, that each leadership team should make that call for their congregation. (We do have hand sanitizer and masks on hand with the means to have overflow participation outside, so as to allow for social distancing, so that the wary can participate and feel some level of preparedness and care during these times.)
