As expected, COVID-19 cases are increasing as days get shorter and we spend more time inside together. We are committed to honor your right to pray and freely choose to participate in-person or virtually as God leads you. If we have a time with multiple cases of those who have attended during a week, we will wisely pause for two weeks to stop it from multiplying in our congregation- otherwise we are staying the course and praying for an end to this pandemic. Our schedule continues to be:
8:00 Worship 65+
9:15 Bible Study Groups
10:30 Worship for all ages
5:15 Family Meal
6:00 Bible Studies and Prayer for Adults, Youth, and Children.
To help in the battle against COVID-19 we are allowing Brightstar to have a Covid testing in our parking lot. They are contracted with the V.A. hospital to test incoming patients; we love to help the V.A. They will also test others who wish to be tested in the community. Clients drive up and do not enter our buildings. We have executed a Memorandum of Understanding that protects the church from liability.
We have updated the software when you give through our webpage. It works better and provides an email documenting your giving regardless of the browser you are using. When you click on the "Give" button on the top right, a page opens that says "Tithes & Offerings"-scroll down and click on "Make A Donation" then choose the General fund or one of the designated offerings. Giving directly from your checking account has a much lower processing charge to the church than debit or credit cards. Thank you for your continued generosity-you have been making a huge impact to the ministries and missions of Immanuel Baptist.
In Jesus, Pastor Ron
