Dear Detroit World Outreach Church Family,
What a roller coast it seems our world has been on these past couple of days. Last week I began a new message series for our midweek service (Thursdays @ 11am) entitled “Responding to Conflict”. I had no idea the conflict that would accelerate regarding COVID-19. On Sunday, we had an amazing time as we gathered for Worship & the Word on Sunday morning. With the majority of our local Church Family joining our Worldwide Media Church family by watching online, several people gathered (withing the legal amount for assemblages at that time) to worship in our spacious facility. For the safety of the American public, our government has again limited the number of those gathered together in a shared space. This time, the number has been reduced to 50 persons. As a ministry that operates with integrity, we joyfully follow the law of the land.
It is obvious to us that we will be unable to hold services in the building. There are times that there are more than 50 people in the praise team. Again, there is no need to fear – we’ve got you covered. We have planned two Sunday morning services that will be recorded live in the Auditorium of Detroit World Outreach Church. While the building will be closed for in-house attendance, you’ll have the opportunity to watch our live service(s) at 9am & 11am on our Facebook Page, YouTube Channel, the DWO App & our church website (www.DWO.org). Our praise team will be leading us, Bishop will share God’s Word and we’ll all have the opportunity to worship the Lord in the paying of tithes and the sowing of offerings.
Many have asked how they can give financially without attending a service in person? We have many different ways for you to do this. You can download our DWO App by going to the Apple/Android/Google Play store(s) and search “Detroit World Outreach” and download the App. You’ll be able to give right there on your phone. Additionally, you can go to our website (www.DWO.org) and give securely there. Lastly, you are welcome to mail your checks/money orders payable to Detroit World Outreach Church. Our address is DWO | 23800 West Chicago | Redford, Michigan 48239.
Your safety is of great concern to us. I continue to confess that COVID-19 shall leave as quickly as it came in Jesus name in addition to praying Psalms 91 over all of you. While we all know that ‘this too shall pass’ we are thankful for a skilled staff ready to serve you to the best of our abilities by offering Sunday Online Services. Our Thursday morning service is still scheduled as we have not exceeded the legal number for assemblages. However, if you feel as though you may have been exposed to the virus or you are weak in body, I recommend you stay home and rest. As always, we not only want to get connected to you, but to stay connected. Please continue to email your prayer requests to Prayer@DWO.org so our prayer team can continue to pray for your needs.
Such a Joy to Serve You!
Bishop CJ Andre, D.D. – Senior Pastor
