COVID -19 UPdate No.1.
As we continue to monitor the developments of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic in Trinidad and Tobago. In the Post-Cabinet Briefing yesterday, Prime Minister Dr. the Hon. Keith Rowley discouraged public gatherings of more than 25 persons inter alia, given that the virus is spread by human contact. This advisory has been reiterated by the Pentecostal Assemblies of the West Indies (PAWI) Trinidad and Tobago (T&T), which has decided in the interest of responsible health practices, to preempt all large church meetings and close the doors of PAWI churches nationwide.
The Senior Pastor and Church Council of ART encourage ALL members to comply with the instructions of both the Government of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago and the PAWI T&T. Accordingly, all ART church services, meetings and events are suspended until further notice. Please continue to check the church’s website at www.aroucarevival.org for updates as well as inspirational content.
Brethren, time of crisis can also be times of opportunity! We are working assiduously towards implementing remote conferencing through Zoom that will allow us to meet virtually as a congregation by Sunday, March 22, 2020. We are also purchasing the necessary equipment that will allow us to live stream the services. Finally, we will be broadcasting urgent messages to you as things unfold. In order to access Zoom and be part of the broadcast, we are requesting that ALL members contact the Church’s Administrative Assistant @ firstname.lastname@example.org; or text 270-7013 to ensure that their current phone number and email address is on file.
Let us heed the call of our National Bishop to rise responsibly with faith, prayer, sacrificial care for others and basic common sense; to exercise human responsibility while leaning on His Divine Ability to see us through these times.
