Hello Calvary Christian Fellowship,
With the recent events surrounding the Coronavirus, aka Covid 19, we just wanted to reach out from a medical perspective from your loving sisters in Christ. This is a long read, but I pray you take the time to read through it. Thank you for your patience.
Here at CCF, we would like to encourage the church to follow the recommendations set forth by the Centers for Disease Control. A few things you can do to protect yourself in the coming days/weeks are:
Keeping yourself healthy physically, emotionally and spiritually are vital to overcoming this. Read your Bible and trust that God has a plan! Pastor Tye will be covering the biblical aspect of this outbreak, so stay tuned! We have included some helpful links at the bottom of the newsletter. Most importantly, we are here for you. If you have needs, please reach out. If you need toiletries, food or help with your medications, please contact the church office at 760.364.1990. We are in this together.
Payin’ It Forward Food Ministries is on as scheduled for the third Friday of every month. Karen is working closely with the county and FIND Food bank to make sure we are meeting certain criteria. Things are very limited. They will be having a “drive- thru” type of distribution. If you do not have a vehicle, please contact Karen directly and she will work with you to get what you need. There are many people in the church that want to help.
Thank you all for your prayers and patience as this situation unfolds. Please refer to the CDC website www.cdc.gov for the most up to date information.
The image of remaining calm as Christians is so important right now! What better hope can we give others by remaining calm in the recent events! Be prepared to tell others why you are so calm! Our hope is in Jesus!
‘Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand.’ Philippians 4:5
For we have no power against this great multitude that is coming against us; nor do we know what to do, but our eyes are upon You. 2 Chronicles 20:12
With love in Christ,
Rhonda & Betsy

Some ideas from the Yucca Valley Chamber of Commerce:
IDEAS FOR YOUR BUSINESS: Offer Curbside Services and/or Delivery. Offer online shopping and shipping. Go digital with meetings – apps like ZOOM and more. Go social – share what your business is doing differently. Stay social – connect with the community here and often be human – not a logo, not a sale, share your encouragement and care. Share resources with other businesses! That could be hand sanitizer or staff or ice … or recipes! Check in with your staff and their families often. Double check your security systems. If slow: begin to work on a recovery strategy plan, touch your SOPs, policies and procedures, business plans, marketing plans, employee handbooks, clean up databases, take webinars and classes from You Tube, read on a new subject.
JOBS: If you have people looking for work, we recommend applying at Grocery Stores, gas stations, Fast food restaurants with drive thru. Costco/Sam’s Clubs. Media – TV stations. Refinancing Services. Assisted Living/Home Care – other medical, pharmacy
