Dear Bonita Valley Family,
News about the Coronavirus is 24/7. Because of this world-wide health crisis, extraordinary precautions and protocols are being implemented to limit the spread and effects of COVID-19. At BVCC we are following Governor Newsom’s mandates and all on campus ministries are cancelled through the end of March. However, we are not cancelling all BVCC ministries, you will now find many of them … on-line, including our Sunday services!
Our on-line ministries are designed to confront another threat that needs to be addressed and defeated, COVID-19 fear! According to medical experts 80% of those who contract COVID-19 will recover without any medical treatment. Treatments for those seriously impacted by the Coronavirus are improving by the hour. Both are reasons for hope, and so is Isaiah 43:1-2, God says --“… Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; you are mine. 2 When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you.” (NLT)
‘Through’ is one of God’s favorite words. God promises to get us through anything and everything, and that includes the COVID-19 pandemic.
So, let’s take every precaution we can, and trust in God’s promises and power to get us … through!
Let’s encourage those working at grocery stores and essential services locations by expressing our personal and sincere thanks; they are a great help and blessing to us all!
