Hey there SCBC family and friends!

One thing that I had to become comfortable with earlier this year was the reality of making a decision one day that we would need to change the next as new information was shared.  I wrote and scheduled the delivery of the email that you received yesterday before leaving the church on Sunday night and prior to the governor’s announcement of his updated mandates regarding public gatherings.  I woke up this morning to a message from Dr. Randy Davis, Director of the Tennessee Baptist Mission Board, highlighting the responses of many churches across the state.  

After discussing our options with the staff and the leaders of our small group ministries, we have decided on a course of action that we believe honors our governor’s request while maintaining our commitment to gather as safely and successfully as possible.  Beginning this Sunday we will suspend of all of our small group gatherings as an added effort to minimize the potential of the virus affecting our church family.  Such small group gatherings include Sunday school classes, student ministry activities, children’s church, and our Wednesday night prayer meetings.  

This means that until further notice our Sunday morning schedule will be reduced to only the 10:15 AM corporate worship gathering.  During this time of worship, we will still provide nursery care for children Kindergarten and younger for parents who would like to utilize this ministry.

We also strongly encourage everyone during this time to continue to practice the highest regard for your health and well-being as well as that of everyone around you.  If you are not feeling well or have been exposed to the virus please love your brothers and sisters in Christ by joining us online via our live stream.  For those attending, we will continue to provide hand sanitizer throughout the Worship Center to encourage common sense hygiene practices as well as face masks that we strongly encourage all to wear while moving about among one another.  Also, as was our practice this past summer, we ask that you help us minimize bottlenecking traffic flow by entering and exiting the building in an orderly fashion and refraining from congregating in the lobby or other constrained locations.

As it has been from the beginning, our commitment is to persevere in gathering together to praise, to pray, and to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ for the salvation of the lost and the sanctification of the children of God.  The only way that we can continue to do so is together.  So let us commit to live well for the glory of God and the good of another especially in the months to come.

Once again, have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!  God bless and to him be all the glory!
