Newsletter – April 26, 2020

To save you from having to read through the entire newsletter, you should know that there are not many updates to the newsletter from last week. We do hope you know that we (both the Pastors and the rest of the congregation) are longing to gather back together again, and we are praying for you. If you have a need please do not hesitate to reach out.

Serving during COVID 19

We recognize that many in our church family have been finding unique ways to serve and care for one another. This has been a joy to see and a joy to receive the acts of love performed by Christ’s saints. We would encourage you to continue to consider how we can continue to challenge one another to “love and good works” during these unusual days. In addition to your spontaneous works for God’s glory, here are some additional opportunities where you could serve the Lord in the days ahead.

Transportation for Cancer Patients

As many of you know, Travis (one of our members) works at a cancer therapy center in Flint. Due to the spread of the COVID 19 virus transportation options for cancer patients has been difficult to find. There are now two patients that need transportation to Proton Therapy Center in Flint for Cancer Treatments. One of these patients lives in the Grand Blanc area and another patient lives in the Lapeer area.  If you are able and willing to drive either of these patient to their appointments, your help would be a tremendous blessing to them. We have also had a few individuals offer to help cover the cost of gas for those who are driving. If you would like to help but need assistance with fuel costs, please contact Pastor Jonathan.

Facebook Live Services, Zoom Meetings, and Youtube Videos

Each Sunday at 10 am we will be hosting a Facebook live service on our church Facebook page (here: https://www.facebook.com/BethanyBaptistChurchGrandBlanc/). You should be able to access and view our Facebook Live stream with or without a Facebook account. While we recognize this will never serve as a substitute for our physical gatherings, we hope you will utilize this as an opportunity to continue to grow in the Lord.
 
We are also now uploading our services, after they have streamed on Facebook, to our Youtube channel here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCLVBHAG8qvEwlfYbySfkz8w Please be aware that it may take a few days of the upload to Youtube to be completed.
 
If you keep an eye on our Facebook page you will also see that we are posting fairly regular gatherings through Zoom and other avenues. One such avenue this week is the following:

Thursday Prayer Gathering

Thursday at 6:30 pm we will have an opportunity to gather for prayer as we look at all the Lord is doing through these unique days. We will gather through the Zo0m app. Again, details and login information will be posted to our Facebook page later this week.
 

Online Giving

Bethany‚Äôs Council of Elders would like to ask that our church family take a few moments to read the following letter related to our financial giving and ways in which you can give to our fellowship during these unusual days. (here: https://www.bbgb.org/covid-19-giving/). We trust you know that we continue to pray for you as we face these difficult days together.
