Encouragement from the Stewardship Chair
FBC Church Family,
This is truly a unique time for us. Our comfort zone has been certainly changed. It seems that the situation of COVID-19 is changing by the hour. It is affecting health, morale, and the economy. Nevertheless, God is calling his people to action.
Stewardship is defined as “Utilizing and managing all resources God provides for the glory of God and the betterment of His creation.” As Stewards, you may be asking yourself, “what level of action can I take or how can I make a difference?” There are several ways to express Christ-Like-Love in the community while dealing with COVID-19. Some examples would be a phone call, messaging, posting a passage from the Bible, expressing how Jesus gives you strength in good and bad times, getting groceries for those that aren’t able to get out, continued faithful tithing, and supporting others to do the same.
First Baptist Church is in the position to broadcast to and service the community. We saw an example of that on March 22nd when we broadcasted worship service through Facebook. We have a great network that has been built by both Church Staff and Congregational Members. The word is continuing to be delivered. In addition, FBC members have reached out to other members of the Church to assist those in need for groceries and medicine. There have also been incidences of our members and staff helping others in the community. We are also blogging on our webpage, conducting Sunday School classes via teleconference, sharing Children Bible Lessons, and anyone can access Right Now Bible Streaming Service.
The list goes on and we cannot stop finding ways to do God’s work, WE MUST continue with faith that our Lord is in control.
Many, if not all of us have been hit hard financially due to these challenges. As FBC marches forward consider the staff and the outreach of the church. This letter has only described just a few of our recent efforts. If you are unsure of the modes of giving during this time, here are a few:
EGiving – If you log on to www.fbcwaynesburg.org, there is a link for this service. (With the current circumstances this may be preferred for all).
Mail – You may send your offering to 303 West High Street, Waynesburg, PA 15370 at any time.
Church Drop Off – There is a mail slot at the church. Please feel free to do this anytime. A staff member will pickup your offering.
If you have any questions, comments, requests, or suggestions regarding how you can assist in our effort, please feel free to contact the church office at 724-627-6444.
