BEAR RIVER EAST BAPTIST CHURCH

SUNDAY BULLETIN AUGUST 23rd, 2020



Hello BRE Baptist Church Congregation:


Summer is travelling along at a fast pace it seems. We are working our way to the end of August and the season of Fall is upon us. Usually, at this time we are planning for the fall ministries. This year because of the pandemic, we are restricted in what we can provide.

 

Coming this September, the Advisory Board and pastor will be looking at ways we can resume some of our regular routine and stay within the restrictions placed upon us.

 

Thank you for your support and standing with us during these difficult times.

 

The work on the renovations to the church continue with the church office being constructed. Dry walling and wiring are left to do. A storeroom is also being constructed, to store the numerous things that need to be stored somewhere when not in use.

 

The pastor will be taking a week’s vacation starting August 27th through September 4th.
