This Week: * We've Reopened Sunday Worship in the Sanctuary! Please note we have established a set of guidelines we are operating from in order to ensure everyone's safety and health. Click here for REOPENING GUIDELINES. We know some of these will be hard and may seem a bit too much in the early going, but we ask that you please be understanding and work with us to help everyone have confidence they can come to worship and be safe.
* Sunday School/Bible Study Classes: We are now looking to tentatively restart sometime in July instead of June. We continue to monitor the current situation and talk with our teachers and leaders. Sunday and Wednesday night services will not reopen until September.
* Nursery/Childcare and Illuminate (Children's Worship): We are now looking to tentatively restart in July instead of June.
* Pastor's Wednesday Bible Studies will post on our Facebook Page, website and Church App (accessible through the Sermon tabs at top) by 6:30 pm each Wednesday.
* The Church Office is open regular hours Monday-Thursday from 9 am - 3 pm. However, there may be times Tonya is not in the office due to her mother's health right now. Please call the church office before coming by to make sure she's in the office.
Looking Ahead: * We now have the upgraded equipment necessary to live stream our Sunday morning services. We look forward to being able to continue our Sunday Live Streaming at 10:30 am each Sunday.
* If you need assistance or know of any member who needs assistance during this crisis time, call the church office and let us know. You can also call Pastor Mark, Sterling Broyles (Deacon Chairman) or one of our Deacon's on Call (printed in the church newsletter.)
These are challenging times for all of us. The safety and well being of all our members is of primary concern, as well as others throughout our country and world. Continue to pray for our President/Vice-President, Coronavirus Task Force working to deal with all these issues, the medical personnel (doctors, nurses, first responders), scientists and researchers working to develop treatments and vaccines, those infected, those who've lost loved ones...and God's mercy and grace to finally contain and end this virus pandemic...and FOR PEOPLE TO TURN TO THE LORD!
So what do you and I need to do: * Pray, pray, pray. * Check on each other by phone, text or email. * Continue to check our website / church app for updated information.
OTHER HELPFUL INFORMATION (from the cdc.gov)
There is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person. * Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet). * Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs. Older adults and people who have severe underlying chronic medical conditions like heart or lung disease or diabetes seem to be at higher risk for developing more serious complications from COVID-19 illness. Please consult with your health care provider about additional steps you may be able to take to protect yourself.
We encourage everyone to take certain steps to protect themselves and others from the coronavirus, flu, and other illnesses, including:
Washing your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
Use hand sanitizer (contains at least 60% alcohol) when soap and water is not available
Do not touch your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands
Avoiding close contact with people who are sick
Stay home if you or someone in your family is sick (fever, above symptoms noted, etc.)
Covering your cough or sneeze (into your elbow or a tissue - and dispose of the tissue in a trash can)
Disinfect objects and surfaces regularly
Use common sense
The coronavirus is yet one more reminder that we live in a fallen world of sickness, sin, suffering, and death. Ultimately, none of us are immune to any of these things. But that’s why the gospel is such good news. God has not left us alone in this world of sickness, sin, suffering, and death. He has come to us in the person of Jesus. The greatest news in all the world is that Jesus lived a life with no sin, died on a cross to pay the price for our sin, and rose from the grave in victory over sin and death. Now anyone anywhere who turns from their sin and trusts in Jesus will be forgiven of all their sin and restored to relationship with God forever. That means that through Jesus, we never have to fear sickness or death because we know we have eternal life with God. (From Parkway Baptist Church website)
