Notes from the Pastor

Pastor Batts and family would like to urge all members to stay calm and take precaution during this time. Mt. Nebo will be cancelling on site services until further notice. Please video or call into Palm Sunday service on Sunday April 5th following the directions in the announcements tab. All online services and material will be posted here.

Below you can read some facts and guidelines about COVID-19 to ready yourself and here is a Coronavirus memo from Pastor Batts. But above all, we know the Lord is in control so we continue to pray over the situation and keep our faith.

What is Cornavirus?

COVID-19 is a respiratory illness. It spreads from person to person typically through coughs or sneezes. It was first identified in China in 2019. There is currently no vaccine and no specific treatment but symptoms can be relieved with medical attention.

What are the symptoms?

  • Fever

  • Cough

  • Shortness of breath

Who is at a higher risk?

Older adults and people with serious chronic medical conditions (heart disease, diabetes, lung disease, etc.) are at higher risk of getting very sick from COVID-19.

How can I prevent myself from getting it?

  • Avoid contact with people who are sick

  • Avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands

  • Wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds

  • When soap and water is not available, use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol

What do I do if I get sick?

  • Stay home and call a doctor

  • Cover your cough and sneeze with a tissue then through away the tissue

  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched items

If any of our members need help getting supplies or have any necessary resources please contact the church.
