Letter to all Members and Friends of Point Pleasant Community Baptist Church:

Out of an abundance of caution and a commitment to help our community, I am cancelling all worship and activities of Point Pleasant Community Baptist Church for the next two weeks. At that time, we will reassess. There is no harm in being cautious. This is a way that we can participate in fighting this virus and not overwhelm our medical professionals and emergency services. Your health is very important to all of us. While some of you would risk your own health, I am not willing to risk everyone else’s health.

I live in Montgomery County. We were locked down yesterday by the Governor. He doesn’t even want us to leave the county. Out of the 22 cases in Pennsylvania, Montgomery County has 13 of them and the news keeps coming in. Now a police officer, a local doctor, and an EMT have all tested positive, at least one of whom is in intensive care.

This was not an easy decision to make. I suggest that you use this time in individual Bible Study, prayer, and meditation. I learned how to use my time well when I was a shut-in taking care of my husband. It wasn’t easy. It wasn’t convenient. But it’s a gift to slow down and think.

You are responsible for your own health, so take this seriously and stay safe.

I will be working from home, so feel free to text, call, or e-mail me during these two weeks.

Love and Prayers,

Pastor Brenda
