Regarding Coronavirus (March 12)
Summit Woods Family,
The COVID-19 coronavirus continues to garner global attention as the disease spreads and is now beginning to impact life more locally to us here in Lee’s Summit. As the outbreak is having almost daily, if not hourly impact, our elders and staff are staying abreast of the latest information produced by our local and national governments as well as information from the Center for Disease Control.
As of this moment, SWBC plans to continue with our regularly scheduled Ministry Training Day this Saturday, and our normal gatherings on Sunday. However, as with weather-related announcements, SWBC will communicate any changes through our REMIND text service, Facebook, email, and the home page of our Web-site. Please check these sources for any communication of changes as we are continuing to monitor guidance from local and state officials; those changes could be last minute decisions.
Our staff and volunteers at SWBC will be diligent to ensure the facility is appropriately cleaned and provide adequate means for sanitization.
We urge our members and guests to take recommended precautions. Older adults with serious chronic medical conditions including heart and lung disease and/or diabetes, should take specific precautions. All others should continue to be mindful of recommended procedures to prevent illness.
As believers, our hope is in the Lord (Psalm 46). We govern our thinking not by the waves of cultural reaction (Philippians 4:6-8), but the steady and sure confidence we have that our God reigns and is ruling over all things (Psalm 103:19). Our lives are in his hands, and he calls us to be wise in our stewardship of all he entrusts to us, loving our neighbors, and resting in the goodness of his sovereign purposes. Our responses are a witness to our world.
