Coronavirus (COVID-19) Concerns
As public health concerns grow about coronavirus (COVID-19), we the staff at the Liberty Community Church of God in Christ are committed to informing our congregation, friends, family and the entire community with the latest information; we want to ensure to everyone that we are indeed handling the situation as best as possible.
According to the medical experts, this particular strain of the coronavirus, known as (COVID-19), is new; it may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes will possibly cause the spread from person-to-person.
For starters, “don’t panic”, we should handle this and any situation with prayer. As Jesus spoke to his disciples, “Why are ye fearful? O ye of little faith?” Then he arose and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm. Matthew 8:26
This is the lesson that Jesus wants us to learn/ understand that hysteria, and worry breads fear and anxiety. “God has not given us the spirit of fear but of power, and of love and of a sound mind.” II Timothy1:7.
It is no surprise to God when we are faced with difficulties, however, we should always remember that he sees all, knows all, and He will rebuke the plans of the enemy. “And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the Lord of hosts.” Malachi 3:11
So during this time of crisis, let us live in peace; peace in knowing that Jesus cares. “Casting all of your care upon him; for he careth for you. Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour” I Peter 5:7-8
The arrival of fall is marked by events such as the changing color of leaves and a drop in temperature. Significant events and developments often mark life changes, which can be considered seasonal changes.
The Bible contains a wealth of inspirational verses and passages that reflect on the changing seasons during the year and during a lifetime. Galatians 6:9- “…In due season we shall reap if we faint not.”
As believers, we should be like the tree, as stated in Psalms 1:3 that is firmly planted by the rivers of waters, bringing forth fruit in due season without withering. Water is the tree’s life source just as water is essential to the human body; it will physically die without fluids. In Christ, we live breathe, move and have our being, because Jesus is the only “living water” that will bring life to the soul. By drinking the “living water” according to the scriptures, one can live and never thirst again. God, in Christ, satisfies our real thirst by means of the Spirit. Christ alone can quench our inner thirst. He alone can meet the deepest need of our heart, soul, and mind. In this season of change, let us start fresh and invite Jesus in our lives today. We too, can embrace the presence of God and experience refreshment, joy and tranquility living inside us.
It is back to school time again! Students, let us be reminded to keep God as the highest value of education, because Matthew 22:35 states that…”You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and entire mind.” God has given us some spiritual school supplies to help us in learning to know Him better. One of these supplies is the Bible, God’s Word. The Bible tells us about how God has worked with other people through the years, and how He will love and help us today.
Another school supply God gives us to help know Him better is prayer — our ability to talk to Him anytime, anywhere. Wherever we are, whatever time it is, we can talk to God about our needs, our hurts, and can thank Him for all His gifts. Prayer is another wonderful supply God gives us.
And when we use the supplies — like reading the Bible and prayer — we grow closer and closer to God, and know more and more of His love and care for us.

Life, liberty, and happiness comes only from God which are the basic foundations in the lives of Christians. As it states in John 10:10, “…I am come that they might have LIFE, and that they might have it more abundantly.” Galatians 5:1 states, “Stand therefore in the LIBERTY wherewith Christ has made us free…” and in Psalm 144:15 states, ” HAPPY is that people, that is in such a case: yea, happy is that people, whose God is the Lord.” So, when you are a follower of Christ, you will undoubtedly have life, liberty, and experience true happiness.
Today- you, too can be free and experience the “true” liberty in Jesus Christ. Will you join us today in our Sunday Worship Experience Service? You will be so glad that you did.
As Christians, we are challenged every October 31st as to how we’re to engage in Halloween. The familiar chant of trick or treat will be ranted throughout the season, for this cause, we have to keep in mind that Jesus is not in the tricks; He’s all about the truth and the treats.
As believers of Jesus Christ, we hold different convictions as to how we choose to approach Halloween, but there is one thing we can all agree upon – certain elements of this day represents fear, evil, trickery and darkness that are inconsistent to our beliefs; which is the reason why Jesus Christ has come to earth to bring light into a dark world. “…Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life…” John 8:12
And for this cause, Jesus has no tricks up his sleeves; but enormous amounts of treats in his hands; He alone is love, peace, and joy! So during this season of Halloween, let us as Christians use this opportunity to be a light to those that are in darkness. Amen.
October is known as Pastor Appreciation Month. Each week, we’ll be celebrating our Pastor for his dedicated service as our Leader for over 39 years! This year’s theme will be: “Your labor is not in vain in the Lord. I Thessalonians 5:12-13- “And we beseech you, brethren, to know them which labor among you, and are over you in the Lord, and admonish you; And to esteem them very highly in love for their work’s sake. And be at peace among yourselves. “
Many churches in the United States celebrate All Saints’ Day to honor all the saints; some eastern churches in the United States celebrate this day on the first Sunday after Pentecost. It is also known as All Hallows Tide, All-Hallowmas, or All Hallows’ Day. Let us keep the tradition going and continue to honor and pray for the Saints.
