COVID-19 Update

Dear Akron First Seventh-day Adventist Church Family,

I have some news to share with you today regarding our church and the COVID-19 global crises which has spread into Northeast Ohio. Many of you are aware of the number of precautions that have taken place across the state to prevent the spread of this virus. Yesterday Mike DeWine, the governor of Ohio, announced that due to the ongoing crisis he has ordered all kindergarten through 12th grade schools closed for a period of time.

This Sabbath (Saturday) we were planning to meet, as a church body, at Mayfair Christian School for a special Mayfair led Sabbath of fellow and worship. As a result of these restrictions, a sense of caution, and the logistics & planning of moving the worship service to our church home at this late hour, the Akron First Seventh-day Adventist church will be closed this coming Saturday (March 14) for ALL activities including Sabbath School and the Worship Service.

Moving forward your church leaders will be gathering early next week to finalize an action plan on how to best meet the spiritual and fellowship needs of our church family while at the same time providing a safe environment and being responsible citizens of our community. We will keep you updated as this fluid situation unfolds.

Please note, I am available and can be easily contacted by phone or email and our church office will be open this coming week. If you have questions, need prayer or care, I encourage you to reach out to me or the elders.

I invite you to join me in a prayer of protection for those who are sick and suffering from the virus around the world, their family members and all those working tirelessly to care for them.

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isa. 41:10

Yours in Christ,

Pastor Bill Levin
