Garden City Baptist Church



Friends and Family of Garden City Baptist Church,


After much prayer, research and discussion, for the safety and protection of all of our church members, visitors and our community we will be canceling church services and activities until our state government and local authorities give us permission to resume meeting together.

Romans 13:1  English Standard Version (ESV)
Submission to the Authorities
1 Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God.

Considering the impact the spread of this virus is going to have on our community, it is our civic duty to obey our government authorities and protect as many people as possible by not being carriers or sharers of this virus. We feel this is the best course of action considering the progression of transmission of the COVID-19 virus.

Though we are not presently meeting together this does not mean we are abandoning one another. We strongly encourage you to email or call your brothers and sisters in Christ. Check on one another. Pray with one another and encourage one another. Share what you've read in your daily devotions. Find music to worship our Lord with. I (Brian) am working on some material that we will hopefully mail out and/or provide on Facebook and email for those who prefer a more guided study. If you have a Bible in your home you have access to all the spiritual food you need. We encourage you to pray first, then feed on God's word.

Because our church operates on your financial support, if you are able, we ask that you please mail in your tithe to the church until we can meet together again. (See church address below.)

Finally, if you have a need of any kind please remember we are a church family and we help each other. Please let us know if you need assistance, groceries, medications, toilet paper or a Scrabble game. These are certainly unchartered waters for most of us but there is no doubt our faith and clean hands will see us through. (See contact information below.)

We'll be in touch. We love you all. God bless you. Pray for us as we pray for you.

In Christ's Saving Love,

Bro. Brian Willard and Bro. John Sweeney
