Dear Church Family:

The world is different, since the beginning of the year. This year, we have had a major pandemic that has attacked the entire world, creating fear everywhere. And we have been directed to close our churches to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus. We have done as requested.

Now, we have been given the green light to open back up, to meet as God has directed us to do, in Hebrews 10:25. In this verse we are admonished:

Hebrews 10:25 - Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some [is]; but exhorting [one another]: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.

The enemy would love nothing better than to divide and conquer us. But God, who loves us with a tender love, is not quick to give us up.

Last week, we resumed church services at Rock Hall. We sent text messages and voice messages encouraging you to come back. We miss you. I am sending this letter to also encourage you to join us this Sabbath for church service. We will begin at 11:00 AM and have a sermon. We will take the following precautions:

• Social distancing
• Encouraging the wearing of masks
• Hand sanitizer usage
• No fellowship meal
• Weekly cleaning
• Spiritual sanitizing
• And lots and lots of prayer

We recognize that you might not feel ready to return to church. We will continue to livestream the worship service via Facebook ( We look forward to sharing fellowship with you in person or virtually.
God bless you, and keep safe,

Pastor Byrkit
