CORVID-19 Update

Dear Living Word Family:

Our state’s officials are limiting large gatherings to minimize the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).  As a result, the leadership of Living Word has decided not to hold public services this weekend. Instead, our weekend service will be online only.

This is a great opportunity to worship together with your family at home as you watch online. You can join us Sunday at 10 AM, watching the Live Stream at You can also view the message by searching on YouTube for our channel using Living Word Christian Fellowship NYC.

Health professionals are asking us to minimize meetings and practice social distancing. Thus, we are canceling all other Living Word events and services onsite until further notice.

For many, the spread of this virus has caused fear and anxiety. Yet we are grateful that the Bible tells us, “God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind” (2 Timothy 1:7). We pray that you would sense God’s peace in the midst of these difficult circumstances. This does not mean we should be careless or reactionary but rather walk in wisdom as we serve the Lord and our community in a way that demonstrates our trust in God and our love for people.

We love you and are praying for you and your families’ continued safety and well-being and for all those who are affected by this virus.  We are also praying for a cure from heaven and for the medical community as they deal with the impact of this crisis. 

Pastor Joel Sadaphal and the Leadership Team of Living Word

PS During this time of crisis join us for either one or both of these times of prayer.
