GENERAL PRECAUTIONS

  • Stay Home. We advise everyone to obey our North Carolina and Wake County “stay-at-home” instructions.
    • Click here for State of North Carolina instructions.
    • Click here for State of Wake County instructions
  • Be safe. 
    • Wash your hands often with soap and warm water. 20 seconds of washing is the best!  You can sing the Doxology or say the Lord’s Prayer during this time.
    • Social distancing remains the most effective means of slowing the spread of the disease. Strive to maintain at least a 6 ft. distance between people.
    • Cough into your elbow, sneeze into a tissue and dispose of tissues properly. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Be Healthy. Maintain a healthy diet, exercise, and get plenty of sleep.
    • Stay Connected. Call, email, text, or write cards or letters to friends, loved ones, neighbors, and particularly those who live alone.
    • Stay Active. Keep up with the latest news, but don’t overdo it. Take a walk. Read a book. Play a game. Work on a project at home. Don’t just sit in front of the television all day every day.

May we use this unanticipated pause in our lives for prayer, reflection, and discernment. May God help us to shine the light of Christ in a wounded, fearful world. 

We will continue to monitor this on a daily basis and will keep you up to date on decisions that are made.
