May 28, 2020 Update
This Sunday we have expanded our online video experience for you to include our Praise Team, a Children's Sermon (thank you, Krista!), and my sermon. All of this, as well as a sermon devotional, can be found at https://broadviewchurch.com/worship-online.
The question that is on everyone's mind is, "When will things return to normal?" This includes returning to church. Will we be able to have church on Easter Sunday? We do not know. Unfortunately, we do not currently have a time frame when we will be able to gather together on the Broadview campus. Lubbock Mayor Dan Pope and his staff have done a good job of communicating with church leaders. I will continue to listen to the mayor, our governor, and other officials in the days ahead. Please pray for wisdom for all in decision-making positions.
I would ask you to read my article at broadviewchurch.com/be-the-cure. Prayerfully consider covenanting with me to "Be The Cure" so that we can do all we can to move beyond the coronavirus pandemic.
Let me express my sincerest gratitude for your faithfulness in giving. You can give on any page of our website by clicking the icon on the left of the screen. If you don't see the icon, go to broadviewchurch.com/give. Of course, you can also mail your offering to our address below. In the next few days, we plan to install a new mailbox that will be more secure than our current one.
Thank you most of all for your prayers. This week, Pastor Gary & I attempted to call each of our senior adult families and individuals on the phone to check on them. I'm pleased to report that everyone seems to be adjusting well to the new (temporary) reality of living through a pandemic. If you have a need or are aware of someone with a need, please let me know so that we can respond. Our church family has always made every effort to assist one another, and this remains true during this current crisis. In fact, I have had far more members tell me that they are ready to help than I have members who needed help. This speaks to the generous and sacrificial nature of the Spirit of God within each of us.
God bless you!
Pastor David Rhoades
