COVID -19 STATEMENT FROM LOGOS CHURCH
March 15, 2020.
 
Seeing the daily rise of COVID-19 in the Toronto area that now there are not only travel related cases but community transmission, the staff at Logos Church has felt that for the protection of our congregants and our surrounding community, ALL PROGRAMS ARE CANCELLED until further notice.  This includes Martha’s Table Food Bank, Wednesday Night Bible Study, Friday Night Prayer and all other ministries. Your safety and well-being is of upmost importance to us.   Should there be any emergencies, please contact email us at mail@logoschurch.ca
 
Please pray with us that the Lord will intervene and have mercy upon those who are ill and have mercy upon this land and the nations!  God is faithful and He hears our cries!  Let us all bombard heaven with our prayers that He will heal our hearts, heal this land, and pour out His Spirit in a mighty way in these last days!

SUNDAY MORNING SERVICES CANCELLED
 
 

Greetings Dear Congregants of Logos Christian Family Church,

Our Logos staff has been constantly monitoring the situation of the COVID-19 virus and its impact in our city.  However, in all this we want to remain firmly grounded in the Truth and fix our attention on Jesus. We do not make decisions out of fear but instead  follow His example to love our neighbours and to care for those around us who may be more vulnerable. This has led us, with information and recommendations provided by the Public Health Agency of Canada and concerns expressed by our church family, to consider a number of proactive measures.  We want to be wise, caring, responsible, and compassionate during this uncertain time.
 

In today’s breaking news Dr. David Williams, Chief Medical Officer of Ontario, is recommending the immediate suspension of all large events and public gatherings of over 250 people due to COVID-19.  Seeing the fact that Logos Christian Family Church well exceeds that amount, we have decided that we will be postponing SUNDAY MORNING SERVICES ONLY until further notice for the well being and safety of our congregants.

This Sunday morning service entitled COVID 19: THE PANDEMIC OF FEAR will be broadcast on Facebook Live (go to our Facebook page @logoschristianfamilychurch) and will later in the day be available on our YouTube channel  www.youtube.com/c/logoschurchca   Please do not miss this powerful message and be sure to create a WATCH PARTY on Facebook to share with all your personal friends!  This is a timely message for what we are facing, and Pastor Dino feels strongly that this needs to be heard!  Kindly go to our Facebook and share the advertisement banner on your own personal pages to advertise.

Office hours for now at Logos will be WEDNESDAY and FRIDAY from 9am – 4pm and there will still be Wednesday Night Bible Study (we are below 250), Kids Club and Friday Night Prayer.  Please come out on your own discretion.  In addition NOONTIME daily prayer will be cancelled for now.

For those who want their tax donation receipts, they will be available next Wednesday and Friday for pick up. 

Although the numbers of those infected with COVID-19  remain statistically low in Ontario, the World Health Organization has identified the spread of COVID-19 to be a pandemic. Based on the information available to us from the (WHO), the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC), and recommendations from other community organizations, Logos Christian Family Church offers the following as recommendations and best practices in response to current concerns:

 

For those wishing to come out Wednesdays and Friday nights:   

  • If you are feeling unwell, or experiencing symptoms such as fever, cough, or difficulty breathing; if you have a pre-existing medical condition which makes you vulnerable or susceptible to contagious illnesses we ask that you stay home to protect yourself and others.
  • When in church, although we are loving and social at Logos, please REFRAIN from hugs and handshakingA verbal greeting or a wave would be sufficient as I know everyone still wants to be friendly.
  • Avoid touching your face, mouth and nose with unwashed hands.
  • Cough or sneeze in the pit of your elbow.

 

WASHING OF HANDS:

 

 Hand washing, the most important tool available to us to prevent the spread of infection.

  • Use warm running water.
  • Lather hands for at least 20 seconds.
  • Dry hands with paper towel.
  • Use paper towel to turn off taps.

 

Hand sanitizing is the next best alternative.

  • Hands should be free of any visible debris, and a sufficient amount of sanitizer is used to thoroughly cover hands. Rub hands together, covering the entire surface of the hands, until the hands are dry. We will have sanitizers in the lobby. 

 

At Logos we care about the safety of our congregants, so all pews will be wiped down with a disinfecting anti-bacterial cleaner prior to the Wednesday Night Bible Study and Friday Night Prayer.

PRAYER

Logos is a praying church and we will continue to pray!! Please join us in asking God to strengthen those who are ill and those on the front lines fighting this virus, and to bring His peace to our hearts and minds as we present our requests to Him.  Let us trust in Him to heal our land as we cry out to Him!  2 Chronicle 7:14 “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and WILL HEAL THEIR LAND.”  This is an opportunity for us to pray like never before, so let’s use our time to seek His face and cry out for revival like never before!
