How Delval Church is Responding to the Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Updated: 3/31/2020

Rising concerns about the spread of Coronavirus in the United States have brought a sense of urgency to ensure that Delval Church maintains a healthy environment for our community. New information is coming out every day and it is important we take some measures to strengthen & communicate our commitment to a healthy church. We will not panic but we will pray and be prepared.

Here are some measures we are taking:

1. Reminder to wash and sanitize our hands: We ask everyone to be diligent in washing their hands with soap for at least 20 seconds. Also, keep a hand sanitizer with you that has at least 70% alcohol.
2. Changes to how we greet: When it comes to greeting each other, we encourage you to use a wave or closed fist bump. We want everyone to avoid the pressure of having to shake hands or hugging.
3. Disease prevention. In an attempt to prevent the spread of COVID-19 or any other flu-like illness, we are going to extra precaution to prepare our space for worship and gathering. As per instructions of the CDC we are taking extra care to clean all touch points to ensure that we are vigilant in keeping you and your family safe. We also welcome anyone with a fever greater than 100.4, cough, runny nose, or sore throat, to join us online where you can fully participate in worship with us at on Sundays and Wednesdays.

Are we having Sunday services?

YES! Online ONLY!

Meeting/Rehearsal Schedules:

Presently there is no immediate changes to the regularly scheduled meetings or rehearsals, but please make sure you text “DELVAL” to phone number 41411 and/or follow us on social media, download the DelVal Church App by texting “DVBC APP” to 77977, and our church website to get the latest updates.

We will also adhere to any/all governmental requirements:

We are monitoring all updates from official outlets, if the state or federal government prohibits gatherings of our size, we will comply.

It’s important that facts outweigh fears and that we remain prayerful at this time. We encourage everyone to listen to health authorities, like the CDC, and follow common-sense precautions to protect themselves.

We trust God who is in control and the sustainer of life. We also pray for those affected around the world, for the elderly, those with autoimmune disease, or no healthcare, for fatigued and under-resourced healthcare workers, and those with small businesses and restaurants that may likely lose business. We trust and believe that God is not surprised and that He will see us through all of this.

By Faith,
Pastor James, Pastor Chris & The DelVal Leadership Team
