wE'RE JUST AS CONCERNED AS YOU ARE
With all of the media coverage surrounding the coronavirus, it only makes sense to be concerned and to take necessary precautions. We understand that. The National Center For Life And Liberty has provided valuable and important information to asist churches and ministries just like ours in responding situations like the one we're all in. Please take a look to learn about what we're doing at HRIBC to protect our church-goers and community as best as we can.
A MESSAGE FROM OUR PASTOR
Dear HRIBC Church Family & Guests,
On Tuesday, March 17, 2020, Governor Ralph Northam ordered restaurants, gyms, and theaters to serve no more than 10 customers at a time in response to the Coronavirus (COVID -19). He urged all Virginians to comply with Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines against gatherings of more than ten (10) people and for people over the age of 65 to self-quarantine until further notice.
In light of these orders and guidelines Hampton Roads Independent Baptist Church (HRIBC) Officers and Directors met on Wednesday, March 18, 2020 to discuss and formulate a practical church operational plan during the Coronavirus pandemic. Please pray for our President, our nation’s leaders, other world leaders, health care professionals, and each other as we seek God’s face for mercy upon humanity during this health
care emergency. Remember, none of us has had to face a situation like this and your pastor has never led a church during a global pandemic, but I know the God of heaven who know all things.
These are some of the current guidelines under which we will function at HRIBC:
Remember: “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
2 Chronicles 7:14.
"But our God is in the heavens; He hath done whatsoever He hath pleased."
God did not cause the Coronavirus, but He certainly has allowed it at this time in history. He has not changed His mind about what He has spoken. Stay faithful.
Roger E. Sebrell, Pastor
