BEAR RIVER EAST BAPTIST CHURCH

SUNDAY BULLETIN AUGUST 30th  2020




Hello BRE Baptist Church Congregation:


We are progressing along to the end of August with this coming Monday being the last day. We usually think of September as the time for children to get prepared to go back to school, and enjoy the Labour Day Weekend as the last outing of the summer. During this time the leadership of the church prepares for Fall ministries as well as resumes those that were closed down for the summer.

 

Well, September 2020 is totally different. Parents are afraid to send their children to school under all the uncertainty of how the COVID-19 virus will affect schools. In the church because of the virus we struggle with, what ministries can we do safely? Will we be able to have fellowship times again? Singing is such an important part of our worship, how can we do it safely? These and many other questions we are dealing with.

 

As pastor I am determined to try to bring back some of the things we were doing before the pandemic and try some new ones. The way we do them in the future will be different and our worship will not be the same as it was before the pandemic.

 

I believe the church needs to get ministry moving again but, we will need to be creative in keeping our congregation safe. I ask all those who receive this email and others who will hear about what I have just written, to pray for guidance in doing the ministry for the Lord Jesus Christ. Pray not only for your pastor, but for the Advisory Board, and all members of the congregation. May we seek God’s guidance, patience, and anointing of the Holy Spirit to get the ministry at BRE Baptist Church Rolling again.

 

Just a reminder that your pastor will be on a week’s vacation starting Thursday August 27th to Thursday September 03rd.  Gloria Wright will be conducting the service on Sunday August 30th. There will not be an online Bible Study on Wednesday of next week.
