where does my help come from?
2 My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
he who watches over you will not slumber;
4 indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.

- Pray with gratitude for health specialists and authorities who are combating the spread of infection.
- Pray for government officials and leaders to have the wisdom necessary to make wise and informed decisions out of care for the public good, particularly to those most vulnerable.
- Pray for all who at this time are feeling anxious.
UPDATE…since we did not have church on Sunday, March 15, if anyone purchased cookies and to still wishes to donate cookies, Diane Meyers suggested dropping them off at her home at 805 Cribbs Street in Southwest Greensburg. From Rt. 119 South, if you turn onto Cribbs Street (at Parkwood Restaurant), her house is two blocks up on the right. You can call Diane at 724-832-1215 or leave the cookies in a box or bag on her porch). In spite of all of the closures we have, Meals on Wheels continues to serve the senior citizens! Your donations are so much appreciated!
As COVID-19 continues to impact our communities, a number of the churches in the region have made the decision to suspend morning worship for a few Sundays. Even for those churches who will continue to meet, there will be families and individual members who will make the personal decision to stay away from worship.
Losing the chance to be together in fellowship at a time such as this, when we need to hear the hope that is ours in Christ and to have the opportunity to encourage one another is troubling for all involved, and so we write today with what we hope is one way to stay connected as a Baptist family of faith.
Additionally, we want to remind you of an important reality. Even though our church family may not be able to meet for corporate worship due to COVID-19, the financial needs of the congregation and our wider mission work continue, and so we would ask that you would be generous and consistent in providing your tithes and offerings to your church.
While you may not be able to be physically present to drop your gift in the offering plate, we strongly encourage you to drop your gift in an envelope and mail it to our church instead.
Your pastor continues to serve and ministry continues to unfold, so we hope you will do your part in faithfully supporting the ongoing work of the Kingdom.
In the interim, we will walk alongside those who suffer in this pandemic. We are grateful for our Baptist Church who so often are on the front lines in response to all who are vulnerable, who suffer, and who live in fear, because they are disciples of the healer, Jesus Christ.
The peace of the Lord
