The American Baptist Churches USA Office of the General Secretary has released a new resource for American Baptist churches. The resource, “Discussion Guide for Reopening Your Church Building,” is designed to help American Baptist churches look at various points of consideration as they implement new methods, policies and procedures in light of the COVID-19 pandemic
There has been much support given over the past year to help with damage both here and abroad caused by floods, hurricanes, tornados, mud slides, and more! Our great state of Michigan has been helped through this offering. Food and Shelter Grants have been received by First Baptist Church of Owosso and Friendship House in Hamtramck.
This much I know… I’m certain that I like certainty. I find my life is much more enjoyable when I feel like I’m in control of what is happening around me. When uncertainty comes my way, I’m tempted to cast it off like a spider that inadvertently lands on my shoulder. My life has become much more uncertain in the past few weeks - as I’m sure yours has too. I’d like to take a couple of minutes and share some collective thoughts I hope might frame your thinking and next steps.
