COVID-19 Update for 3/19/2020

Hey LFCC family,


In light of the most recent events concerning the Coronavirus and the recommendations of our government, we wanted to update you about some decisions we’ve made as a Church leadership.


We want to be responsible and do our part to try to keep people from contracting this virus. So along with prayer, we will do our part in ‘social distancing’. Starting this Sunday (March 22nd, 2020) at 10am, until the time comes where it is safe for us to meet together again, we will only be meeting online.


We are NOT canceling our services. I repeat, we are NOT canceling our service, our service will just be offered exclusively online. Our livestream will start 10 minutes prior to our service which will start at 10am. After the livestream is over, the service will be available in an archived format on our church YouTube channel and our Facebook page.


I know this is weird for many of us, but this will not stop the church. Moving online doesn’t mean that Satan has won anything. Moving online doesn’t mean we are less of a church because the church isn’t contained to a building. So, it is impossible to cancel church. You can close a building BUT we are the church and that can’t be canceled. I know this may not seem like an ideal situation, but we really believe God is going to move in amazing ways if our response to fear will be to Face Everything And Rise.
This is a unique time in the history of our world where we have an incredible opportunity to reach out and give the hope of Jesus to a world that is desperate for hope right now.

AW Tozer once wrote: A frightened world needs a fearless church. So let’s Rise and share Jesus with others.


Here are some things you can do to Rise:

  • Check on neighbors, coworkers, friends, and family… and help meet their practical needs.
  • Share Jesus with those who don’t know Jesus. Encourage those who do. We all need the hope that only Jesus can bring.Invite everyone to worship online with us.
  • Prepare communion before the service starts (cracker and juice will work). During the service we will take communion together as a family.
  • Be prepared to give. Hard times do not revoke God’s mandate to give. You can give as part of your worship online at https://pushpay.com/g/peopletogod OR on the Linton First Christian Church app for iPhone or Android OR you can mail in your offering to: Linton First Christian Church, 9878 W State Road 54, Linton, IN 47441


During the service you can interact by clicking on the comment section of YouTube or Facebook. As family, we want to know about any prayer requests you have or any decisions you make.


We are blessed to have the opportunity to livestream and stay connected to each other. But this truly is an incredible opportunity to reach those who do not normally attend church.


If you are worshipping with us online, you can find the livestream at the following links:

This WILL NOT stop what GOD is doing! Nothing will ever stop what God wants to accomplish! Any time throughout history that the church was disrupted, the church exploded in number. It started when Stephen became the 1st martyr… persecution broke out, the church spread out, and many people came to Jesus. This is our opportunity to spread out our influence and influence more people for Jesus. See, our methods have temporarily changed BUT the message NEVER WILL… and it must go out! We are the church and the church has work to do!


If you are in need OR you know someone in need we have attached a resource page to assist you, and we have people who can bring you supplies you need. You can also call the church at 812-847-9535 or email us at peopletoGod.com.

Regardless of what happens in the future we know who holds the future… so let’s keep praying… keep loving God… keep loving people… keep sharing Jesus… and be safe. We love you and will see you all soon.

LFCC Coronavirus (COVID-19) Response

Hey LFCC family,

In light of recent events concerning the Coronavirus we wanted to update you about some decisions we’ve made as a Church leadership. 

Upon much prayer and deliberation, as of now, we are planning on proceeding with regularly scheduled services (including children’s programming) on Sunday, March 15th, 2020 (Sunday School at 8:30am, Sunday Gathering at 10:00am). Know that this is an ever-evolving situation and we will do our best to stay on top of it.

We are doing all we can to ensure that our facility is as safe as possible for our Church family. Counters, door handles, and other high-use items have been cleaned and disinfected numerous times. 

In and effort to minimize contact, we will make the following alterations to our service:

  • Communion plates and offering bags will not be passed throughout the congregation
  • We will use only the two front entrances (SE and SW Doors under the awnings) for entry on Sunday morning.
  • Since Governor Eric Holcomb has imposed a limit on gatherings to no more than 250 people, once we reach 200 people in the main building we will begin diverting attendees to the Youth House where they may view the livestream of the service as a family.

We are taking every precaution we can to minimize risk to anyone and you can help with that. We need you to use good judgment to protect yourself and others. 

  • If you are feeling sick, have a fever or a cough; we are asking you to stay home and worship together with us online. 
  • If you have shortness of breath, are elderly, or have an immune system that is compromised; we are asking you to stay home and worship together with us online. 
  • If you feel as if you may have been exposed to the Coronavirus, we are asking you to stay home and worship together with us online.

Please do not feel bad if you feel that you need to stay home. We want to be as safe as possible so we are asking everyone to err on the side of caution and worship with us online if you are the least bit uncertain.

If you are worshipping with us online, you can find the livestream at the following link – http://www.peopletogod.com/lfcc-livestream/ or visit the LFCC YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCgDXA2dRMny6yyHjw22Umsg

Also, if you are worshipping online we encourage you to prepare communion and partake with us as a family during the service and don’t forget that you can give as part of your worship online at https://pushpay.com/g/peopletogod OR on the Linton First Christian Church app for iPhone or Android. 

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We are trying to figure this out like everyone else, so please be flexible, be faithful, and stay tuned as things can change very quickly. 

Don’t forget to be in prayer. Peter said in 1 Peter 3.12 12 The eyes of the Lord watch over those who do right, and his ears are open to their prayers.

God is hearing our prayers so please keep them coming.

God has been moving in mighty ways and we believe He will continue to move in mighty ways… This WILL NOT stop what HE is doing. Nothing will ever stop what God wants to accomplish! Our methods might have to change BUT the message NEVER WILL… and it must go out!

We trust God will protect us as His children BUT we will take every precaution we need to take. 

Keep praying… love God… love people… share Jesus and be safe. We love you and will see you all soon.

Elders of Linton First Christian Church

Forget the Frock 2020

Easter is quickly approaching and once again, we would like for you to consider joining us as we “Forget the Frock”.

For the past few years, LFCC has participated in Forget the Frock. This is a movement started by a woman, Emily Fox, who loves Jesus and answered His call to do SOMETHING. That something was the decision to forgo all the frilly frock (dresses, suits, ties) that accompanied Easter attire and purchase a t-shirt that actually served a PURPOSE! This year we have chosen Open Arms Ministries as our ministry with a purpose! If you would like to participate by ordering a shirt, please click HERE to fill out the form or contact Michelle Ellett for more information. Shirts are $20 each. All orders must be received by March 16, 2020. Thanks for supporting a great ministry!!
