Good Afternoon, FWC:
We have recently returned from a successful missions trip to the Family Worship Center of Belize. (I will be providing an exciting report over the next couple of days. Stay tuned.) As a result of our international travel and an abundance of caution, we have self quarantined. We have no symptoms, and are doing fine! However, this measure obviously limits our ability to have any physical interaction with each of you.
Please know that during this time we are praying diligently for each of you, as well as our greater community.
Our leadership team has been working tirelessly over recent days, both monitoring and adapting to the new realities the Covid-19 pandemic has presented. Both federal and provincial governments are calling for the suspension of “non-essential mass gathering”. Their recommendations began with a threshold of 150, and now sits at 50. Announcement and amendments have been forthcoming daily.
Truth Learning Academy has been suspended this past week in compliance with recommendations made by NB Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr. Jennifer Russell. Today, we are expanding our ministry response by suspending all public worship services until further notice. Worship services will continue to be offered to FWC members via online streaming, in accordance with Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) recommendations.

Here is a great file on how to self-monitor for Covid-19 symptoms. How do I self-monitor? Remember, if you are experiencing symptoms (fever, cough or difficulty breathing), call 811 -- not 911.
Although the measures being enacted are unprecedented — in both our church and government history — we understand the importance of the role we need to play while praying the curve of this pandemic is flattened.
We are here to serve you. Quarantining does not mean abandonment. You will hear from us daily. We love each of you. We love our community. Check up on each other. Check on your neighbours. Pray for each other. We will get through this.
