HBC Responds to Corona Virus Pandemic
Because of the coronavirus pandemic, the clear majority of our Deacons have voted to cancel worship, Sunday School and all church activities for the next three weeks—through Palm Sunday, April 5. The deacons will then evaluate the situation and send out another message regarding future services.
God is still in control and wants you to use this situation to benefit yourself and others. Since most of us will be spending large amounts of time at home, I urge you get ahead on your daily Bible reading and to pray regularly for others. If possible please join with your fellow church members and be in prayer Wednesday nights from 6:30-7:00 p.m. and Sunday mornings from 10:30-11:00 a.m. (before the online service). If you have prayer needs, send them via email to email@example.com. You can also call me on my cell, 703-268-1883.
As we did last week, Morgan Jones will videotape me reading Scripture and preaching a sermon entitled, “Prepare for Battle,” based on John 15:18-27. This week we will add music and interpretation for the deaf! Please watch this service Sunday morning at 11:00 a.m. Simply go to our website, www.my-hbc.org, and click the drop-down menu “Worship” and “Sermons.” Then choose the sermon for March 22. This way, we can all worship together!
Finally, since we will be shut-down at least for a month, and possibly more, please continue to support the church financially by sending in your tithes and offerings in one of these ways:
- Mail a check to Haymarket Baptist Church, 14800 Washington St., Haymarket, VA 20169.
- Make a payment through the website, www.my-hbc.org. Click the Gifts link in the red banner at the top of the page, once you’re on the “Stewardship” page scroll to the bottom and fill out personal and credit card information for Amex, Discover, MasterCard, or VISA.
“God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble,” (Psalm 46:1).
Remember that church members all have deacons assigned to them so you can also contact your deacon.
Our Deacons plan to decide about whether or not to hold next Sunday services by Friday, March 20 and the notice will be sent via email to members and available to all on this church website:
The church calendar will be kept up to date as the COVID-19 issue continues to develop: HBC Calendar
