Faith Bible Church, Coronavirus Response
Wednesday, April 15, 2020 Midweek Update

Dear Church Family,

First, we want to thank you for all of the kind words and notes of appreciation you’ve been passing along to the staff and elders. Whether it be a Facebook comment, an email, or a handwritten letter your thoughtfulness has been a great encouragement to all of us, and your continued financial support for the church has been overwhelming.

After Easter we typically turn our ministry attention to the summer, but there are still so many variables impacting those decisions we will not roll out summer opportunities until the first of May, at the earliest. Be in prayer for those in leadership as we make decisions about Vacation Bible School, summer camps, and our other summer activities.

Also, we will continue to gather remotely until at least the 26th of April. No one is quite sure what May will bring, but even if restrictions get relaxed we anticipate some sort of augmented schedule in the first month back. We’ll communicate those plans as soon as decisions are made. Pray that we have wisdom.

Here is today’s video devotional. This one is from Jay – We have been ‘put here’:

Thank you for your partnership in the Gospel,
