Throughout the pandemic, we will continue to love God above all (Matt. 22:37), and love others in appropriate ways (Matt. 22:39). We will also and honour the Lord’s command to submit to our governing authorities (Romans 13:1-2; 1 Peter 2:13-17), provided that these laws do not unfairly target churches on religious grounds to prohibit the spread of the gospel (Acts 5:28-29). In all, we will continue to focus on our mission at Island Bible Chapel of worshipping the Triune God, introducing Jesus Christ to our world, and nurturing our fellow believers.
When we gather in-person, we will seek to show love to our brothers and sisters-in-Christ, particularly the vulnerable among us, by wearing masks, maintaining physical distance, and abiding by the temporary capacity limits, as required by our governing authorities. Enhanced cleaning measures are also in place.
If our governing authorities bring in temporary health measures that limit our on-site gatherings, we may move our services online.
We will seek to communicate with the chapel family in a timely manner any changes to our services. This will be done via email and the IBC Facebook page.
If you’re feeling sick, or have any COVID symptoms (ie. fever, chills, cough, difficulty breathing, sore throat, runny nose, loss of taste/smell, nausea), out of love for others, please stay home and join us online.
