- Coronavirus – COVID – 19
April 6, 2020 Update
Oak Grove Baptist Church will be closed until we are able to worship together again. All bible studies, rehearsals, and other ministries will not meet physically at the church. During this time, we will use Facebook to live stream bible studies on Wednesdays at 7pm and to live stream inspirational messages on Sundays at 10am.
To those who are connecting by phone, we had a problem with the conference call on last Sunday. Now, we have a new number that will make it much easier to call.
Please dial 617-793-8499 to connect to the bible studies and inspirational messages. No access code is required. If you receive a busy signal, continue to call until you get on.
To prepare for this week’s bible study and inspirational message, please read John 17:1-10 and John 20:19-29. We are excited to celebrate Resurrection (Easter) Sunday with you as we remember the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, our Savior.
Now that we are operating as Oak Grove Baptist Church Without Walls, I am asking you to call 5 different members each week and check on them.
Please ask the following questions.
1. How are you doing? (Spiritually, Emotionally, Physically)
2. How can we help you? (Spiritually, Emotionally, Physically)
3. Are you able to connect via Facebook or Conference Call on Sundays at 10am and Wednesdays at 7pm to receive an Inspirational message from Pastor Watkins and other ministers?
Please help the member if you can and send concerns and needs to the Pastor and Deacons or call the church office and report the needs. Let’s be the church, the arms, and legs of Jesus Christ as we take care of each other.
The church office hours are 9:00am – 1:00pm, Monday – Friday.
Remember, you can give your tithes and offerings in the following ways:
2. OGBC Website
3. Bill Pay
4. US Mail – Oak Grove Baptist Church, P.O. Box 852, 200 Sims Parkway, Harrisburg, NC 28075
5. Drop off – Please call the church first
Thank you so much for giving to support the ministries of OGBC.
Continue to pray for those who have contracted this virus, for those who are vulnerable to its symptoms, the first responders, and for our healthcare professionals.
Continue to pray for God’s protection and cure of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
2 Timothy 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
May God’s blessing and protection continue to surround us and give us peace.
