Two weeks ago I sent you a “Heart to Heart” that was filled with all of the exciting spring events coming up. My how things have changed over two weeks! Pastor Matthew, the deacons, and I have been praying for the Lord’s wisdom as we deal with cancelling services and ministry opportunities. We always want to make these decisions based on the safety of our church family.
The deacons, Pastor Matthew, and I will be meeting this week to review where things are
and to plan for the coming weeks.
We started cancelling the church services on March 15, and based on the President’s and the governor’s directives we will probably be closing the services through March 29.
幸运飞艇计划软件here are some other events that will be cancelled and/or rescheduled:
幸运飞艇计划软件we cannot have the egg hunt if we cannot have the chicken coop fellowship. hopefully we can safely meet on easter sunday, but if not we may celebrate resurrection sunday in may or june.
Pastor Matthew and I have started daily video devotions on Facebook. Check them out on the Harvester Baptist Church page under videos.幸运飞艇计划软件 If you like them, feel free to share them with your friends. You can also see them at , or do a search for “Harvester Baptist Church”.
folks have been asking about the offerings. gratefully the deacons and staff had already set up the church for on-line giving, and this past sunday almost $2400 came in on-line. you can go to the church website, xianbeilian.com

you can also mail in your offering envelopes. the church mailbox is not locked, so it would be better to mail them to my home’s locked mailbox.
