The unfolding effects of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) global pandemic have touched millions of people directly and indirectly throughout the early part of 2020. Churches and church communities are among those affected. While it is easy to succumb to the fear and anxiety that come in historical moments of uncertainty, our call as the church is to bring light and hope to our communities.
Toward that end, Church Law & Tax continues to monitor this developing story with an eye toward educating and equipping leaders to lead well in their communities. This free page is designed to help churches assess the legal, tax, financial, and risk management considerations of this rapidly changing situation—and then make sound decisions.
Church Law & Tax will regularly update this coverage—be sure to sign up for its free e-newsletters and follow it on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn to stay informed of the latest. And if your church is wrestling with a specific question you don’t see addressed here, email us: firstname.lastname@example.org. We can’t promise an answer—but we’ll do our best as we navigate the challenge of this moment. May the church rise up to meet this challenge and bring honor and glory to the Lord.
