PromiseLand Stands Against the Flu!
We, at PSM, are uniting against the flu! There is an onslaught of the flu right now in the Central Texas Region, and it is crippling our economy, education, and recreation. It would be depressing if we were without hope. However, with God we have hope!
Isaiah 53: 5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
1 Peter 2: 24 He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed.
Both of these texts are referring to the stripes that Jesus took at Calvary before He was hung on the cross. The stripes paid the way for our healing. Throughout the gospels, Jesus healed the physical ailments of the people, and then he commanded us to pray for one another.
James 5: 14 Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. 15And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.
Steps We Are Taking As A Church Family:
- In your private prayer time, pray AGAINST illness attacking us. Our united, prayerful attack against the enemy is affective!
- If you or your family members experience flu-like symptoms, please contact Jackie in our office so that we can pray for you. If you would like for us to pray with you personally, please let her know.
- We want to make sure that our members attending the weekend services are protected from contagious illness. If you have a fever, please wait until you have been fever-free for 24 hours before returning to a weekend service. Kids will not be accepted into Children’s ministry if they have had symptoms in the last 24 hours. We have mounted waterless hand cleaner throughout our facility for your convenience.

Some people are especially susceptible to airborne illness and can not take the risk of being exposed. Because of a weaken immune system and other issues they are battling, they will attend weekend services with mask over nose and mouth.
That is the way life is going right now and everyone in that situation is welcome.
They are wearing a mask for protection, NOT because they have a contagious illness.
