I love you, Lord.
You are my protector and my shield.
You are my vaccine from every virus.
You are my wisdom in the face of change.
You are my provision in the famine.
You are my assurance when the numbers are short.
You are my comfort when I suffer.
You are my joy in boredom.
You are my energy when I am overwhelmed.
You are my hope for better days.
You have loved me well in every situation.
So, I love you this day.
In cooperation with local, state, and federal authorities, CIL Elders have suspended all in-person gatherings through April 30, 2020.
Why? We love you.
Someday soon, we will regather, and it will be a real day of celebration. Until that day, let’s keep loving each other deeply in ways that cooperate with this “safer at home” request.
I will see you online in various ways, including our Sunday morning services. More importantly, both myself and all CIL Leaders are available to you by phone, text, email, or any other way we can connect with you.
You are not alone! We are still a church family.
I love you, and we will be together soon!
I hope you were able to join us for our online service on Sunday. In case you missed it, or if you want to watch it again here are some links for you to experience the service again:
I want to remind you that all CIL gatherings are suspended through the end of March 31. Our Elders will prayerfully consider how to progress as we approach that date when we will know more about the healthcare threat and government recommendations.
I miss meeting in person, and I cannot wait to see your face again! Still, the Lord is helping us take some steps forward in technology that will be a blessing to us all in the years to come!
In case you didn’t see the devotional I put on social media, it is available below.
With love and appreciation,
Hello church family!
This message is just a quick reminder that there are no in-person gatherings at CIL this Sunday. Instead, we will offer online service experiences at 9 am, and 10:45 am.
You can access this feed at either:
Our website – www.cil.church. Look for the link to “Sermons.”
Facebook Live. Find the CIL Church page on Facebook, and we will be streaming the online service at both 9 am and 10:45 am.
Meeting together is always better, but I am so glad we have this opportunity to experience Jesus together during this unique time.
I love living for Jesus with you!
CIL is suspending all in-person services and activities through March 31. We will have online services each Sunday.
We want to be cooperative citizens full of faith that God will get us through this health threat. This time will pass, and we will overcome! Love to all.
Message from Aaron and Beth
For those of you who attend CIL, I want you to know that we plan to have both services this Sunday at 9 am and 10:45 am.
I spoke with the CIL Elders – Aubrey McGowan, Chip Johnson, and Deborah Jackson – and we are all in agreement. Please don’t feel any pressure to come, but if you are not in a high-risk category, we plan to worship with you.
Let’s keep praying about this unprecedented situation.
God will get us through!
