Cancellation of National Lutheran Conference (NLC) 4.0 , 29- 31/8/2020
Greetings in the Name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
Regarding the above. It is about four months between now and the event, and today, the Covid-19 pandemic has yet to show a sign of great improvement. The venue of our NLC had been ceased from operation since the MCO announced by the government and may not be even available till end of 2020. As advised by the government, we are not encouraged to organize mass gatherings this year.
This has become more difficult for the preparation of the NLC. Additionally, with the bad economy affected by this pandemic, the participation of the NLC will also be affected too. In view of all the reasons stated, with careful considerations, the NLC Working Committee has proposed to cancel the NLC to the LCM EXCO for consideration. After deliberation and with heavy heart, the EXCO had finally approved to cancel the 4th NLC 2020 for the common good of all.
Lastly, we would like to take this opportunity to thank all the pastors, leaders, brothers and sisters for your involvement, preparation, assistance, prayers, and support in this regards. May the Lord bless and preserve us as we go through this pandemic, as we believe our Lord is Emmanuel, the Lord who is always with us.
“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”(Jeremiah 29: 11, ESV)
