Special Announcement Regarding COVID-19

Dear Brothers & Sisters,

As you know, the outbreak and spreading of Coronavirus (COVID-19) in the U.S. and in Texas has started. The CDC has announced that all effort should be put toward avoiding any crowd gathering and emphasizing personal hygiene to delay and flatten the peak so that our healthcare system can cope with the situation.

In this regard, this is indeed a very severe challenge not only for our health and community but also to our church lives. However, history tells us the only thing that can weaken the church is challenge from inside the church. Challenges from outside the church will, on the other hand, make the church stronger. With all your understanding, here are the decisions from the church board: 

1. All activities and programs except Sunday worship services (these include adults and children services) will be suspended starting this Friday (3/13). All groups or fellowships that normally meet at church are suspended immediately until further notice. All group leaders please start exploring online tools for alternative way of meeting and bible study. All groups that normally meet at houses it is also highly recommended that such activities should be transformed to using online tools as alternative platform for meeting going forward.
2. Sunday worship services will be restructured starting this coming Sunday (3/15) until further notice. Online streaming and broadcast will be used instead. Detailed information regarding these will be provided. As you know this is a very big change and we are all new to this. So please be patient and let’s work together through this process.
3. Cantonese retreat will be postponed until further notice.
4. Youth graduation banquet will be following what the church decision is in May. DCCYC is at the wait-and-see mode.
5. Congregational meetings will be postponed until further notice.
6. Regular offerings may be

     b. or checks mailed to: FCBC Dallas, 17817 Hillcrest Rd, Dallas, TX 75252

Finally, a piece of good advice to you all: keep a good social distance between people wherever you go. Avoid handshakes. Practice very good personal hygiene.

Let us use this opportunity to turn ourselves as God’s people toward Him in fervent, corporate prayer.

Thank you and God bless!
