COLCF Response to COVID-19
Hope, Not Fear!
We are living in uncertain times with the outbreak of COVID-19. Our faith can be challenged, and it can be hard to understand where God is at such a time as this. We encourage you to maintain a spirit of HOPE, Not Fear! No matter how frustrating, confusing, or scary this crisis gets, fear nor evil have any power over you. “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11.
This is God’s world and He is still in charge. Yes, the world is deeply flawed and broken, but it is still God’s world and “He is The King of Glory!” (Psalm 24)
COLCF members and staff: We take your health and safety seriously and have moved all Sunday services and all weekly ministries for the time being to 100% digital gatherings in accordance with the guidelines set by Governor Charlie Baker, the CDC and the City of Boston.
We know that the Church is not the building, but the people! We are the Church and we invite everyone to join us for worship every Sunday at 12:30 PM via Facebook LIVE or YouTube LIVE.
Visitors to COLCF: While we may not be able to meet in person for the foreseeable future, we can stay connected online or via phone for our ministries. Access COLCF.org or send a note to email@example.com for additional details and logistics.
