Updates during the Coronavirus Crisis


A MESSAGE FROM PASTOR ANDRÉ


March 20, 2020


This has been a wild year so far, hasn’t it? No one could have seen all the things that have happened coming. Except someone did...God. And he always warns. That’s why I believe he gave us the message that we celebrated about at the end of the year last December. He let us know that in 2020 “It’s Gonna Be Alright.” I believe that he gave us that word so that we could hold onto it in these tough times together. Not only did he say “it’s gonna be alright” but he also said that by the end of the year it’s going to be “All-right” for those of us that stay close to him. I’m still believing for that for you. I believe that this will be our most victorious year yet!

As you’re practicing social distancing and following the advice and instructions of the medical community and our government be sure to do the things that we talked about on Sunday: 1.Refuse to Fear, 2. Resist Sickness, and if needed, 3. Receive Healing. We’re going to pick up with #3 on Sunday at 10am on our website and Facebook LIVE. Be sure to join us, but don’t just jump on yourself! Invite your family and friends to join with us as well. I received numerous reports this last week of members whose unchurched family & friends participated in an FX Xperience for the first time. We're talking about people that they had been unable to get physically to come to church. God is a master at taking what Satan meant for evil and turning it to good—let’s work with him in reaching our family and friends who need him now more than ever.

During times like these, we understand that many are in need of support or facing great challenges. We care and we're here for you. If you need prayer or even a listening ear, contact us HERE.

I love you guys! See you Sunday!

In light of the heightened concerns regarding the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), I wanted to personally reach out to our FX family. 

 

Although we do not live our lives in fear, we do believe in taking heed to those who are in authority according to Romans 13: 1, 2.  Per the direction of Governor Whitmer and the Director of the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, any organization with public gatherings of 250 people or more have been asked to refrain from meeting.

 

Therefore, our regularly scheduled Worship Xperience this Sunday will not take place at the Detroit Music Hall, but we will be meeting ONLINE. The Xperience will last no more than 45-60 minutes, providing an intimate time of worship that will include acoustic praise and worship, and a timely message that I believe God has placed on my heart to share with you.

 

We believe this is the best course of action for our church family at this time. This special online Xperience will be shared/streamed on our Facebook platform and/or on our website, myfaithx.com/livestream. We hope to resume our services publicly at the Detroit Music Hall soon, but stay tuned for ongoing updates via our social media pages and website.

 

To be clear— at this time, there are no known COVID-19 cases at Faith Xperience Church. We are continuing to monitor the outbreak, and will follow the guidance of our leaders in government to help ensure the safety and health of those within our church family. 

 

During this strenuous time, we believe in the power of prayer! We ask that you join us as we pray for the health and well-being of our Nation, those affected, and the professionals tending to those who are affected. We are in great anticipation of a move of God even during these times.  Psalm 91 reminds us that God is our refuge and our strength, and we are not to be afraid.

 

Remember what the Lord said to us at the end of 2019. In 2020, it’s gonna be alright!
