Our Response during these challenging times

November 1, 2021

Greetings Brothers, Sisters, and Friends,

In March of 2020, our ministry suspended physically gathering as a church family. The past 18 months have indeed been challenging, but I want to remind you of the faithfulness of God even during these critical times.

This year the government mandate to discontinue gatherings of any size has lifted and as vaccination campaigns continue, the citizens of our state and nation have slowly returned to comfortable levels of normalcy.  This indeed differs from person to person and organized groups.  In June of 2021, our members and partners agreed to come together for in-person worship every fourth Sunday for the remaining portion of this year with exception of those months that have a fifth Sunday.  This is our customary Sunday for celebrating the Eucharist and engaging in fellowship following the morning worship.  We respect everyone's choice and privacy as to whether they are vaccinated or not, and therefore, continue to keep in place temperature checks, sanitation stations , physical-distancing in the church building, and wearing masks during our gatherings.

We encourage you to keep the prayer altars open in your homes and promote family worship time. Prayer should always be the first order of the day in the believer's life.

Officially, we are no longer on a designated Pause. However, we should not forsake the opportunity to:

•Slow down Access, Evaluate, and Realign our personal walk with the Lord.
•Commit to or recommit to times of daily prayer individually and as a family
•Call and check in on friends and family members near and far.
•Establish a routine for supporting your mental and emotional health.

As citizens of God's Kingdom, we should be the first examples of responsible citizens of the earth.  Please continue doing your part in practicing habitual sanitary measures protecting yourself and your family.  We trust and know God to be the true Source of our lives and preservation.  Yet, we will not behave presumptuously, but wisely as we live by faith in the world.      Beth-Rapha Ministries International, Inc. takes this time to salute and honor our First Responders and Essential Personnel who, without their dedication and commitment to serving our communities, we would not have been able to progress as we have.

Let us continue to keep covered in prayer:

•The leaders and people of the Church worldwide.
•Government officials, medical and Healthcare professionals first responders and essential workers
•The families grieving the loss of loved ones
•Those who are recovering with the symptoms of CoVID 19
•Those who are sick and/or hospitalized

As a reminder, we are convening our fellowships on our Zoom campus. Sunday morning worship and other special events can be attended on Facebook Live.  Please email your prayer request to PRAYER@BRHH.ORG
