There really are no words to describe this past week. Cities and states are banning gatherings, closing schools, restricting businesses, and asking people to stay home as much as possible as a result of the coronavirus.

In what feels like an unsettling, uncertain, and challenging place—we can rest in knowing that God is in control and Jesus is with us.

No matter if the COVID-19 is here for days, weeks, or months—Jesus is with us. We have hope in Him. We are still the church. And your ministry still matters.

Although our ministries are beginning to look different, they are as important as ever. So, as we all navigate these times, we want to be able to resource you and the families you serve as best as possible.

We are still the church. And your ministry still matters.

To get started, we’ve included some free resources for you and for sharing.

In uncertain times, God is faithful, and He is with us. At David C Cook, we are leaning into that. We are praying that you lean into Him as well.

“The Lord your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing.” 

Zephaniah 3:17 (ESV)

We are with you,
