OPEN LETTER TO CNCI FAMILY FROM BISHOP RONNIE
To all the pastors, elders, deacons, workers and people of God,
Beloved CNCI Family,
Greetings in the most precious precious name of our Lord Jesus Christ, I pray that all of you are in health and well by the grace of God.
With the ever-growing infection concern, world-wide and at home New Zealand, regarding the coronavirus, I wanted to reach out to you and inform you of our response to this pandemic. First, let us remember the words of the Apostle Paul; (2 Timothy 1:7) For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. Secondly, let us exercise “wisdom.” (Proverbs 22:3)A prudent man foresees evil and hides(take cover or take refuge)himself, But the simple pass on and are punished.
Many churches, sport’s venues, schools, etc. are suspending events until further notice. Here at CNCI we care deeply concern about your spiritual edification and your physical safety. After much thought in prayers and guidance from the word of God
I do believe, at this time, the Lord is directing us to suspend our services, or other scheduled events in response to the pandemic. Having said that, we are strongly urging everyone to be very cautious about interactions with one another and to other people.
There are 5 measures we have taken in order to connect to one another in spite of the lockdown.
(1) We will have online – live streaming – Sunday service at 11:00 AM to 12:30
Prepare your family at least 10:45 before the service and log in to cncinternational Facebook account
Prepare elements for communion – we will have communion after the delivery of the Word of God.
(2) Online giving is also available.
Your continual financial support during this crisis is very much appreciated.
Our account number is 03-0155-0604319-25

(3) Online or Family Bible study – pastors – elder – bible teacher can have bible study with their respective groups online
Parents, and able believers can have bible study with their family.
(4) Family Prayer meeting every Thursday – let us pray all together for the safety and well being of all our brethren. We’ll send important prayer requests before our schedule prayer meeting if any.
(5) Connect, inform, and communicate to all your cell groups, brethren and love ones all our directives. Let us help one another in this difficult times.
Let me leave you these things we can all do:
For safety for all CNCI churches
For God to aid scientists in discovering a vaccine quickly.
For the witness of the church in a mighty way to the unsaved
For safety of all the health workers such as; doctors,nurses, care givers and etc.
Pray for humility and repentance before God to all nations of the world (Nz) for grace and mercy.
For the powerful move of that we will not allow the coronavirus to quarantine our faith.
Stay safe and God bless you all,
Bishop Ronnie and Sis. Edna Sangil
