Good Afternoon Philippi Family,
I wanted to update everyone on our church’s plans for meeting in the next couple of weeks. The deacons and I have agreed to follow the direction of the SCDHEC, the CDC, and the precautions set fourth by the local school system. Our intentions are not to operate out of a place of panic or fear but instead to do our part to help slow the spread of the virus for the good of our families, church family, and community. Therefore, our plan at this time is to not meet at all for the remainder of the month of March; this includes any church gathering, committee meeting, or practices. As the situation seems to be ever changing, we will do our best to keep the lines of communication open throughout this process and update you about future plans. If you need me at anytime or have any questions, please do not hesitate to call. My cell number is 678-538-7710.
During this time that we will not be meeting together, our church leaders wanted to offer alternate ways of giving to the church. We are currently working on online giving options and auto draft options for our church. We also have a P.O. Box for those of you who would want to mail in your financial offerings. That address is:
Philippi Baptist Church
P.O. Box 273
Johnston, SC 29832
Finally, I want to encourage you to be diligent in prayer and purposeful in your personal bible study as we walk through this time. Our connection to the Lord must be the constant in our lives. It will enable us to be firm in our faith and to be salt and light to the world around us. Also, while we might not be able to worship as a large group, I want to encourage you to have purposeful times of worship in your homes. This is a great opportunity for us to discover the different ways that worship can look when our normal routines are disrupted.
