As Christians we know that, in Christ, not a moment of our life is wasted. In this unprecedented time in our nation, He has given us the unique opportunity to show the world that the Church is so much more than a building.
Our prayer team remains active. Should you need prayer, please contact our church office at 864-579-3120. Each request is brought before the Lord numerous times weekly by our prayer team. They would also like to share a brief message from the Southern Baptist Convention:
1. Ask God, in His mercy, to stop this pandemic and save lives—not only in our communities but around the world, particularly in places that are unequipped medically to deal with the virus. (Isaiah 59:1-2)
2. Pray for President Donald Trump and other government leaders—international, federal, state, and local—to have the wisdom to direct us in the best courses of action for prevention and care. (Romans 13:1–4)
3. Scripture says—teach us to number our days carefully so that we may develop wisdom in our hearts. Pray that the Lord will give us wisdom in this moment of fear as the foundations of what we know are shaken, that others would realize how fragile life is and how real eternity is, and they would see their need to turn to God. (Psalm 90:12)
4. Ask God to protect our missionaries and their families around the globe, using this global crisis to advance His Good News to the whole world. (Mark 16:15)
Additionally, many of our members are standing by and ready should you need anything. If you are sick, or uncomfortable going out, please contact our church office and we will make sure that you are well taken care of.
We will not have services this evening, but please spend time in your Bibles, HEAR journals, and in prayer. We will announce a decision about our Sunday services tomorrow.
