In an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19, elected officials have continued to adjust their guidelines. On Monday, March 17, our governor instituted a ban on gatherings of 50 or more. In order to comply with these updated guidelines, we will cancel our onsite Sunday morning worship services and our Wednesday Family Night programming through April 5. Governor Whitmer has not issued any restrictions for smaller groups.
We would encourage you to utilize our livestream and join with us for an online service at 9am each Sunday. You can find this livestream at fhbcgr.org/live
We would encourage you to keep tabs with each other and to look for ways to serve. Make a call to someone in your life group or your Adult Bible Fellowship. Check in on a widow. Offer to pick up groceries for those who are at higher risk. Pray for our doctors and nurses who are serving on the front lines and at greater risk. Order takeout from a local business that might be adversely affected by the shut-downs. Make a donation to Kids Food Basket where they are continuing to provide meals to local kids who would otherwise go without proper nutrition. The needs are great.
The church offices will remain open. If you have any particular needs, don’t hesitate to reach out. We will continue to monitor the situation as it unfolds. We as elders covet your prayers and are thankful for your patience and your partnership in the gospel. As he has done so often, may God cause his purposes to advance in surprising and unlikely ways!
The situation continues to change, so continue to monitor woodtv.com for any additional or late-breaking closing information.
