Hello everyone! As we continue to follow the Chief Public Health Officer’s recommendations concerning the COVID-19 pandemic and seek to protect the most vulnerable in our society, here is how Community Baptist is adjusting.
The Sunday Morning the Worship Services are solely online. You will find the stream here, on our YouTube Channel or on our Public Facebook Page. We encourage you not to neglect the habit of gathering together (Hebrews 10:25). We are grateful that technology can enable us to do this in ways unheard of in years past.
Church staff will be working from home. Phone messages and email will still be responded to on a regular basis as we seek to keep the ongoing business of the church running smoothly.
Since the bulk of Pastor John’s visitation takes place with those who are most vulnerable to infection, he will no longer be making visits in person. Instead, Pastor John and the deacons will seek to be in touch with people through phone.
The expenses of the church do not change even though we are not meeting. Everyone is encouraged to continue to give weekly as they normally would. Please visit our "Give" page for details.
All of these adjustments are temporary, and we pray that we can return to normal operation soon. However, we do not know how long these changes will need to be implemented. You are encouraged to check in and encourage one another through phone, messaging or video chats. These are uncertain times for many. Jesus said, “Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Don’t let your heart be troubled or fearful.” (John 14:27, CSB). Let us both rest and act in the peace that our Saviour gives through the presence and power of the Holy Spirit.
