Advisory No. 3 - Coronavirus (Covid-19): Conference and Church Operations
Written by: East Jamaica Conference | Wednesday, March 18, 2020
After a meeting with the field leaders in Jamaica called by the Union, the Executive Committee of East Jamaica Conference (E.J.C.) has accepted the recommendation from the Jamaica Union to close all our churches for regular service for this Sabbath, March 21, 2020, until further notice. If a church decides to live stream, that church should abide by the recommendation of the Government for the production team.
In keeping with the recommendation of the Union, the E.J.C office will be closed today until further notice. All Pastors should keep in touch with their members through social media. The Conference is asking our Pastors to encourage Sabbath School teachers to minister to their class members by using Social media as well, and where possible through small group ministry.
We are encouraging our members to follow the guidelines of the Government. We are also encouraging our members to practice the health principles of S.D.A church and to use this occasion to go to the writings of the Spirit of Prophecy on the healthy lifestyle.
