"A Classic Church
for a Contemporary World"
Government authorities have advised against gatherings for ten or more persons. In response, several states, including Florida, mandated that restaurants, bars and schools close their doors in an effort to slow the spread of coronavirus.
Members of the Session of First Presbyterian Church of Daytona Beach have spent hours pondering and praying for discernment of God's leading for our church. After last Sunday's church service, we met to discuss whether to continue future Sunday services and church activities.
It is clear that the virus continues to advance and endangers more of God's beloved children each hour. Therefore, in light of the increased danger, the following measures are hereby established for our church:
1. There will be no gatherings for worship at the church. Worship services will be broadcast over radio station WNDB – 93.5 FM and 1150 AM.
2. All FPCDB campus activities except absolutely essential ones are canceled. Absolutely essential activities are to be cleared by the Pastor or Clerk of Session.
This is a crucial time for our community and nation. In order to keep you informed, we are establishing a task force to reach out to you and others. Please stay in touch—by telephone, email or other safe-distance means—with friends and those you know who may be in unique situations. If you know of someone with immediate special needs, please call the Church, your deacon, or someone who can contact us. We encourage you to follow the guidelines established for your safety.
One more item, and by far the most important, pray, pray, pray. Pray for our nation and our nation's leaders—all of them. Pray for the world...and that this worldwide virus stops. And...be a prayer in action by what you do and who you are. Because of whose you are.
In the love of our Lord Jesus Christ,
C. B. (Jake) Marshall
Pastor, First Presbyterian Church Daytona Beach
