Communication Church Council EEL Bergerac

14 March, 2020

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,

With the health crisis affecting Europe and our country, the Council of the Evangelical Free Church of Bergerac had a meeting today in order to put the recommendations of our authorities in place.

After having exchanged our thoughts with health professionals from our assembly, the Council decided that Sunday services and all other activities of our church are cancelled from today onwards, until further notice from the official authorities.

This decision is all about protecting our brothers and sisters whose health status is already at risk, and those around them. Also, we would like to protect the health care professionals from our assembly as much as possible, as they will have to face this situation.

Our pastor, Pascal Girard, is working on some alternatives which will soon be proposed to you. Please stay connected: check your email, our Facebook page and the church website regularly.

We encourage you to pray for this exceptional situation.

Let’s watch over each other. Please contact our pastor if your health is affected, or if you are in need of any kind of assistance.

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.

Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way

Psalm 46 :1,2 (NIV)
