Temporary Suspension of Activities

To Our Church Family at NABC,

We praise our great God of love and mercy for His enduring care over His children. Psalm 20:7, “Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.”

While our medical professionals and government officials do all they can to control or treat the coronavirus COVID-19, we thank them for all they are doing on our behalf and while we wait we will continue to pray and believe in the God of the Bible and trust in Him for He is sovereign over all, He is all powerful and nothing has caught Him by surprise. Let us trust in God. Proverbs 3:5-6, 5“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; 6 in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.”

We are citizens of the USA and our President has asked that groups of more than 10 not meet together. Because of that request, the worship and activities of NABC will be suspended until Sunday, April 5. For a little over 2 weeks there will be NO activities at our church facilities. We are encouraging you to join us for the live streamed worship services each Sunday, March 22 and 29 that can be seen on NABC Facebook and on our website www.northandersonbaptist.com. Worship at home with us! We look forward to our first worship back together on April 5, when we will have our regularly scheduled Sunday School and Worship.

We have always been so thankful for your faithful giving to the Lord’s work here at NABC and around the world, that we are asking that you keep it up for these next two Sundays by giving in one of four ways:

1. Bring your offerings to the church office during office hours of M-Th. 8:30 am – 4:30 pm.

2. Drop through the mail slot on the office door 24/7.

3. Mail your contributions to North Anderson Baptist Church, PO Box 793, Anderson, SC 29622.

4. Give electronically on our website: www.northandersonbaptist.com (upper right side of web page “On-line Giving”) or just giving.nabc.church

We know that you will continue to give faithfully to the Lord’s work.

We pray that while you may not be able to physically worship together at “church,” YOU are the church and our Savior and Lord desires for us to still be His hands and feet. Because of His mercy and love to us, we should reach out at this time and care like Christ would for those who are in need. Seek out those who may need your love and help others who can’t help themselves. You may need to take someone to get food or even pay for a person’s groceries who may be having financial problems. If someone needs to go to the doctor and is afraid to get out by themself, you can lend a hand by taking them. If there are difficulties in our church family our deacons and ministers stand ready to help in any way possible. Unfortunately the hospitals are not allowing visitors and the nursing and assisted living facilities are on basic lock down and we can’t visit. But, if there is a need with any of our members you may call me and I will do what it takes to care and minister as Christ would. Please call the pastor at 933-6200 and I will respond as quickly as possible.

I want to thank you for your support. Many of our leaders here at NABC helped to make these decisions. We are a family and I am grateful to each of them for their courageous leadership. We are all concerned for the health and welfare of all our members but particularly our Senior Adults.

I leave you with this thought, let’s count our blessings and thank God for His past faithfulness and His present care to His children. He will not leave us nor forsake us. Isaiah 26:3-4 says, 3 “You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you. 4 Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord, the Lord himself, is the Rock eternal.”

I love and pray for God’s protection over each of you,

Pastor Bill
