Dear Grace Bible Church Family,
After much thought, discussion, and prayer, the Elder Board believes we should suspend all of our weekly church services beginning tomorrow, 3/15/20. This is a difficult decision, but we believe the correct one. The health and safety of our brothers and sisters and of our community is the motivation behind this.
Though admittedly a setback and disappointment, this is certainly not a defeat. We all know our worship of the Lord is not confined to a place or building. We should view this not as a hindrance, but as an opportunity to witness and serve. There is no reason that the fellowship between believers and the care of believers should diminish in any way. In fact, we should redouble our efforts. Likewise unbelievers will be watching us, and I suspect more amenable to hearing what we have to say about our Lord.
Sermons will be posted on Sermon Audio on a regular basis, and the possibility of a live webcast is being explored. Sermon Audio can be accessed from our website - www.gracebiblechurchparkway.org. Click on Audio Resources at the top of the page. A green Sermon Audio button will then appear. Click on this. Carole Ward (601-842-2222) or Regina Bonner (601-946-4002) are available to provide help if necessary. Arrangements will be made for those without internet access. We do not see an endpoint at this time, but each Thursday we will notify you of the plans for the upcoming week. Please contact any Elder or Deacon for questions or assistance.
The world is in turmoil and disarray with the immediate future unclear. On the other hand as believers our certain future, our hope is unshakeable. We serve an Almighty, Sovereign God who loved us in that He sent His only begotten Son to save us.
