Dear BFC Family,
As you have been watching the news about the Corona virus, you know that the information is constantly changing. Based upon dates being considered by the Center of Disease Control and the Oklahoma Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church, the church facilities will be tentatively closed through May 10.
We will continue to worship through live streaming online beginning this Sunday at 10:00 am through May 10, 2020. All other events will be postponed or cancelled.
Although, the church building will be closed, we still have ministry opportunities to continue serving senior adults. If you would consider being part of a volunteer base to help run errands for our vulnerable members, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 405-635-5068. If you need some assistance, please do the same.
Finally, the financial support for the ministry of Bartlesville First is still needed. Some easy ways to give to the church include, texting BARTLESVILLE GIVE to 77977, through the Bartlesville First Church app, or through our website at BartlesvilleFirstChurch.com. Additionally, checks may be sent to our mailing address: PO Box 3636, Bartlesville, OK 74006.
Your Church Council and I will continue to follow CDC and conference recommendations and keep you informed through weekly communiques. Conference response
Let us be in prayer for wisdom, protection, and healing for all of God’s creation in this season of virus and anxiety. We pray especially for those who are the most vulnerable and seek to serve them in the days ahead.
Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer. Amen
Grace and peace,
