A Message from the Deacon Body during Covid-19 Virus

Church Family,

During this difficult time for us all, the deacons want to help in any way we can. We are implementing a process so that we can be assured of contacting our sick and shut-in. But we want to do more than that. If you find yourself in need of a service we can provide, please let one of the deacons know. If you want to put together a care package for someone in the church and need a delivery driver let us know. If you need someone to go out to buy groceries for you, we want to be able to help with that. If you need your trash taken to the dump, we can help with that too. We will be available to help with your physical needs as well as your spiritual needs.

Since we won’t be able to meet together for the foreseeable future we will deliver DVD’s of Sunday morning services should you be unable to watch online. Just let a deacon know you need a copy and one will be made for you and delivered.

Also remember that the church still needs our giving. In light of this there are a number of ways to continue giving. You can mail your check to the church office, you can take the check by during normal office hours, you can drop the check off in the secure lockbox outside the church office, you can go to the church website and use PayPal or you can let one of the deacons know and we will be happy to come by your home to pick it up for you.

Let’s all remember what Pastor Calvin keeps telling us, “Have faith. We will get through this.”

In His service,

The Deacon Body of Andrews First Baptist Church
