With the latest “Stay at Home” orders, and the extra time we have on our hands, let us take some of that time to ensure we are reading or bibles, praying, doing our devotions, and studying to show ourselves approved unto God.
The Baptist Bread Devotional drew attention to Hebrews 13:15-16 today, “By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name. 16 But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.” Even with our limited social exposure, this verse is very important for us to heed. It is a blessing that God has given us various ways to show Him our devotion through sacrifice. When we choose to praise God, instead of complain or grumble, God is well pleased! Let us communicate to others today who good God has been to us, and who God desires to be to all! This reminds me of Revelation 4:11, “Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.”
FYI: Prayer call tonight at 6pm on Zoom. If you need the link, please let me know.
Have a blessed day in the Lord!!

The Youth Rally leadership has decided to postpone tomorrow night’s Youth Rally.
The tentative rally schedule will now be:
– Last quizzing rally will be on April the 17th, at McGregor Road Baptist Church.
– The Award rally will be on May 15th, at True Light Baptist Church.
With all the closures, cancellations, concerns and fears, I thought it necessary to update you on what this means for the services and activities of McGregor Road Baptist Church. Governor Holcomb put out a restriction today on group meetings and events that exceed 250 people in one room or hall. Our numbers are typically less that 125 for most of our services and activities, so we are clear to meet as a church. If you or your children have a fever, or are experiencing flu like symptoms, please do not come to church or church activities. After a fever or flu like symptom, one should stay clear until completely free of symptoms. According to the CDC, the most vulnerable segment of our population are those with heart disease, diabetes or lung disease. We have made several announcements to our congregation about the need to wash hands thoroughly and often, and to limit handshaking and touching amongst members. Sunday morning we chose to forgo the handshaking time, and we will continue to leave this out of our services. Currently we do not have any plans to cancel services or activities. While this is a serious situation, according to the CDC immediate risk of being exposed to this virus is still low for most Americans.
