UPDATE Friday, March, 20, 2020

Message from Bro Bruce:
Due to continued Coronavirus concerns, and the ramped-up expectations from our governor, worship service attendance is limited to just those involved in the Live Stream presentation. Please stay home and enjoy the service on Facebook Live. Please pray for the online service as we will hopefully have an audience that extends beyond our membership. God bless each of you and thanks for being flexible, patient and helpful during this time.

Bro. Bruce Rudd
 
UPDATE Monday, March 16, 2020

Dear Mt Sylvan Family:

This past Sunday was a testament to your cooperation and due diligence to prevent possibly spreading an illness. You were greeting with smiles and elbows. You did not complain about any of the temporary inconveniences. Our ushers adapted quickly to take the offering at the exits as you left the church. The spirit of cooperation, friendliness & love is always manifested in your actions.

Our calling as believers is to shine the Light of Jesus in dark and fearful times.

The bible tells us in Hebrews 10:24-25 “And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.” It is our goal to strike a common sense balance between worship & wellness. So with that said:

Here are our plans:

WEDNESDAY 3/18/2020

· As announced last Sunday we have canceled the Wednesday night service and all Wednesday night ministries for 3/18/2020

SUNDAY 03/22/2020

· We are canceling our Sunday School hour and the interrelated activities that normally occur between 10:00 -11:00 am.

· We will “Facebook live” on our church Facebook page beginning at 11:00. We encourage all members to stay at home and participate via Facebook. However, the doors will be open if you just can’t stay away. Facebook is a great way to be a part of the service without actually being there.

· The sanctuary will be open at 10:00 am for anyone that might come desiring prayer, hope or Jesus. We never know who might walk into our church looking for hope and peace.

· We are also on KMOO 99.9 fm at 11:30. (previous weeks sermon)

Giving:

· You can give a tithe or offering on our church website.

· You can mail your check to Mt. Sylvan Baptist Church at PO box 1630, Lindale Tx. 75771.

Other things temporarily cancelled and will be rescheduled:

We have cancelled the Amazon outreach meeting that was scheduled for 03/22/2020

We are also postponing the Ingathering until things calm and folks can be back in church. Date is to be determined.

We are cancelling Home 2 Home on Saturday March 28. Our plan is to resume on April 25th.

The GA mini-camp for this weekend 3/20-21 has been cancelled.

 

Bro. Bruce Rudd

UPDATE Friday, March 13, 2020

Due to the concerns of the Coronavirus, I thought I should share what we are asking of our members at Mt. Sylvan Baptist, as well as, what we are doing.

  • Our custodian is using sanitizer and disinfectants on hard surfaces, counters, railings, and doorknobs, as well as, his other cleaning methods.
  • Our Nursery, as normal is being cleaned and all toys are being disinfected.
  • We are asking for the time, to avoid shaking hands, but to bump elbows or fists, or just simply smile.
  • Please, keep a handkerchief handy or cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze.
  • We have hand sanitizer in the Sunday School Classes as well as the foyers.
  • Wash your hands with soap and water often.
  • We suspended our normal greeting time last week and will continue without it until conditions allow it again.

I echo the words of Pastor Robert Jeffers of First Baptist of Dallas. He said, “Pray as if everything depends on God and take precautions as if everything depends on you.”

In times of chaos and crisis, the Church’s witness, prayers, and love are vital. Doors are opening to share the hope we have in Jesus. God is still on His throne and this will eventually run its course. As of now, we don’t see a need to cancel services or the Ingathering. Should something change we will let you know.

We completely understand that some need to stay home due to lung conditions or other health issues, especially the elderly or those with heart conditions, and can’t take a chance. If you or someone in your family is sick or has fever, please, stay home unless fever free for at least 24 hours in order to protect others. We are closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic. Let us all be vigilant in prayer and trusting in the Lord day by day.

What a joy and blessing to belong to Jesus and have our hope in Him regardless of the storms we face. God is good all the time!

Bro. Bruce Rudd, Pastor
