PRAYERS FOR OUR LEADERSHIP
The elders ask for your prayers as we continue to look at how we move forward in our current situation.  While we are grateful to be in the “Yellow Phase,” we’re still not able to meet together as a body.  We do have some ideas that we are working on, but part of the frustration is not knowing when we will move into the next phase that will allow us to meet back together again.  We are striving to balance the need to protect one another’s health with understanding our God-given need to be together in community.  Please pray for restrictions to be eased, the eradication of the virus, and for wisdom as we move forward.  Now that some restrictions have been lifted, we do encourage home groups or individual families to look for opportunities to come together to fellowship with one another, in a safe way.  Until then we will continue to do our best to minister to one another and gather faithfully for the preaching of the Word and worship together remotely.

ONLINE GIVING
Thank you for your continued faithful giving to the ministry of Big Woods.  Until we are able to meet again corporately, all giving will need to be done online or mailed in to the church address.  More information on how to do that can be found here.

HARD QUESTIONS
