Our church leadership has been closely monitoring the COVID-19 virus and the impact it is having on our nation and on our state. With the announcement of the NC Governor on Thursday discouraging gatherings of groups of 100 or more as this virus spreads across our state, the leadership of our church met this evening to discuss how our congregation at First Baptist Church of Elon should approach the coming weeks. Our leadership group unanimously agreed that we want to honor God with our decision and the health and safety of our congregation is of utmost importance. Taking this in mind, the church leadership has decided…
Sunday School and Worship Services will be Cancelled for Sunday, March 15, 22, and March 29.
Age Group Bible Studies during this time period (starting March 15 to March 29) will be cancelled.
Community Activities scheduled to use the Church Building from March 15 to March 29 will be cancelled/rescheduled/postponed.
Individual Team Meetings should check with church staff about room location and availability during the March 15 to March 29 time period.
During these coming weeks, Norman and I will be providing homilies or sermons to reflect on during the Sundays that we will not be gathered together as a family. My hope is to have a homily available on the church website, Facebook page, and have copies on CD by either this Sunday or at latest Monday. While we may not be in one location, we will be united by the Spirit of God.
