Dear CRBA Family,
We are experinceing a lot of change these days but our Lord is with us and will guide each of us as believers and churches if we seek Him. Over the past two weeks multiple churches and organizations have canceled events due to the Coronavirus and their desire to keep people safe and healthy. We have chosen to make changes to our schedule as well. The following events have been canceled:Spring Meeting & Equip Conference
Men & Boys Rally
Community Skating Party
Weekly Pastor’s Gathering (this will move to an online format temporarily)
While this healthcare challenge is discouraging it is also pushing our churches to attempt new ways to reach people with the Gospel. Many of your pastors and church leaders have chosen to suspend public worship services for their love of our community as well as to respect our government officials. Trust me, these pastors are broken-hearted about church families not meeting together but because of their love for you they have made these difficult decisions. Please pray for your pastors and church leaders as they continue to serve and make difficult decisions. In fact, it will bless your pastor and staff greatly if you give them a call or send a letter or email to encourage them. May God bless each of our churches as we find creative ways to minister and reach our community for Christ. Also, because of the severity of the days in which we are living, CRBA is asking each of our CRBA churches to claim every Thursday for the next few weeks as a day of prayer and fasting. You may choose to fast for one meal or the entire day (or, because of healthcare reasons you are unable to fast) but, whatever you are able to do, please be intentional in praying. Pray for:
Our government leaders, churches, Pastors and church leaders, healthcare workers, families who have lost their income, the elderly, our unreached community and world.
I hope you will join us as we together (not in person) seek God for wisdom, mercy and salvation for the yet to be saved. To God Be the Glory!
