CoronaVirus Update

3/22/20 Update
Dear Voice Family and Friends,

Due to the statewide “essential travel only” restrictions and the other social distancing guidelines, Transformation Tuesdays will not be meeting until we are given the all-clear to return back to normal. 

Join us as we continue to pray for those who are on the front lines – doctors, nurses, hospital workers, scientists, police and fire, and other important agencies that are keeping things going. Pray for wisdom for our President and Vice President and the Task Force as they give counsel and make decisions. May we stay in peace and rest.

3/19/20 Update
Dear Voice Family and Friends,

Due to the guidelines regarding social distancing — specifically avoiding gatherings over ten, and the recent “essential travel only” restrictions in St. Joseph County, Voice Fellowship will be streaming live on Facebook this Sunday and future Sundays until we are given the all-clear to return back to normal meetings. 

How this Sunday will work:
Beginning at 10:30am, Dave and Liz Carey will be live-streaming a time of worship from their home. 

You can view the live stream at http://facebook.com/voiceministries.

At 11:00, that feed will end and we will start up a live feed with David Ramer bringing us an encouraging word. 

During this time we will also give you an opportunity to give online at http://voiceministries.com/donate. It is important to recognize even though we are not meeting together in person, not only do your gifts and donations help us continue to keep bills paid and IHOP-Michiana open, but you are being faithful to the call to give and all the blessings that come with being faithful (Malachi 3). 

You are welcome to comment during the message. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask those and at the end of the service, we will try and answer some of your questions. 

IHOP-Michiana will continue to be open during the week as normal. The President has issued guidelines regarding gatherings. If you are sick, immune-compromised or elderly — please be safe and stay home for the next 2 weeks or so. Wash your hands frequently and keep hard surfaces disinfected. 

We will continue to update as more information becomes available. 

May God bless you and your families during this time. 

In His Love,
The Core Leadership Team

3/16/20 Update
Dear Voice Family and Friends,
In compliance with the new guidelines from the state of Indiana regarding gatherings (as Healing & Prophetic night is one of our larger meetings) and because people come from all over Indiana, Michigan and beyond, We are cancelling the Tuesday night Healing & Prophetic service.

We will continue to keep you updated on further changes as things are communicated to us. Stay in peace and remember that love will always win over fear.

In His Love, In His Grip,
The Core Leadership Team

3/14/20 Update
Dear Voice Family and Friends,
In light of all the news about the coronavirus (COVID-19) and as you are experiencing the many closings of schools, colleges, concerts and sporting events, we wanted to give you an update about Voice Ministries and IHOP-Michiana. 

We, like many others, place a high value on being an environment that is safe and healthy for you to gather, worship, and seek the Lord. We know that this disease is spread though close contact, so we are paying attention to the recommendations by the CDC as well as state guidelines from Governor Holcombe. 

Many people have become fearful and anxious. Others have dismissed the whole thing as hype. In 2 Timothy 1:7, Paul instructs Timothy that God has given us love, not fear! His strength is with us and in us and He has given us His wisdom through the Holy Spirit to use self control (sound mind). So in the middle of all this, we want you to be confident that God is in our midst. Peace is with us. 

So while we do not operate from a position of fear, there are some common sense precautionary guidelines that we want to share to best serve our Voice community.

Meetings:
Sundays & Tuesdays — Because we are not a large church, we have some room to spread out and meet together. At this writing (3/14), we plan to continue our Sunday and Tuesday gatherings. 

IHOP-Michiana will continue to remain open throughout the week. We encourage you to come and sit before the Lord, worship, pray and meditate. 

Cleaning:
Our team of amazing staff is making sure that the restrooms and hard surface touch points (handles, knobs, tables, counters etc.) are being cleaned and disinfected regularly throughout our facility. Additionally, the children’s spaces and toys are being wiped down. 

Please do not feel that you have to shake hands or hug people.

Remember to wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. (You can say the Lord’s Prayer while you do it!) We provide antibacterial soap in our restrooms. 

There is also hand sanitizer located in the coffee area. 

Sickness:
If you are feeling sick, we would encourage you to stay home and watch on our Facebook Live feed (http://facebook.com/voiceministries) that we offer each Sunday and Tuesday. And if you choose to stay home, there is no judgment or condemnation from us! Feel free to comment and post testimonies of how the message or service affected you as you watch. 

Giving:
We are able to do what we do because of your faithfulness. So even if you can’t make it here, you can give online at http://voiceministries.com/donate. You are also welcome to stop by during the week and drop your offering in the black box in the lobby. 

Communion:
We will still have communion available at the back of IHOP-Michiana in prepackaged, individually wrapped elements. 

Sunday, March 15 is a National Day of Prayer regarding the CoronaVirus. Since we established the House of Prayer, we have often said that there will be days coming that will test our faith. How will we stand in those days. We feel that this is certainly one of those tests. When we come together in unity on a day set aside for prayer, let us be filled with love, hope, and experience great joy in the midst of this unprecedented time in our nation. 

In His Love, In His Grip
Bob & Deanna Deering, Founders
