Two winters ago God gave us the opportunity to grow as a church through an 8-week trial of having no heat. We made adjustments and came out stronger after that time. This trial is one that we will share with all of Tulsa, as well as the nation, but I believe we are well equipped to handle it.
The White House has issued guidelines for slowing the spread of the Coronavirus in order to help our healthcare systems provide adequate care for all those in need. Tulsa mayor G.T. Bynum issued an executive order closing bars, restaurants, and other facilities in Tulsa effective at midnight.
Given the instruction from our city and nation, MBC will be canceling all meetings and gatherings for at least the next two weeks. This includes Fresh Bread Bible Study, Fellowship Club, Sunday School Classes/Parties, and all other regularly scheduled activities. We will be streaming our worship service online and you can here on our website or on our Facebook page, and you can also find them archived on our YouTube page. If you need help with any of this technology, please ask.
I want to encourage you to reach out to anyone that may be on your mind during this time. A phone call is a great way to help maintain and even build relationships. When you have a need, please let us know. If you are in a high-risk category and need someone to pick up groceries or run an errand we want to help. All of our deacons and ministry staff stand ready to assist, as well as many others in our church.
While we may not be able to meet together corporately, this is a great opportunity to grow both individually and as a church family. Use your extra time wisely. Pray for one another, our church body, our nation, and our world. Read and study your bibles together as families. Our church also provides a free streaming platform called Right Now Media that has great content for the whole family. Just email if you don't have access, and we will get you connected.
Grace and peace,
