Amarillo PBC will continue to meet virtually on Sunday, May 3rd and Sunday, May 10th.
A Note from Our Pastor:
First of all, we want to continue to pray for and be thankful for those that are responding to this virus on the front lines. We also want to pray for those that have been impacted by this virus, whether that is through the actual virus, care for ones with the virus, those impacted emotionally by isolation, or those impacted financially. These are difficult times for many.
On Monday, April 27th the Governor announced that Texas can move towards re-opening. We are thankful that much of the state is able to do that. However, we join with numerous local business leaders and others in feeling like it is too soon for Amarillo to re-open. As such, we will continue to meet virtually for the next two Sundays and then re-evaluate the situation.
This is not a reaction out of fear. We sincerely miss assembling together in traditional worship, but we also recognize that churches are part of the fabric of this community and as such, we need to care for one another. As of April 29, 2020 the Amarillo area had 600 active cases. The rate of new cases each day is extremely high and estimates say our totals will double every four days. We want to be meeting together again, but at this time it is not the approach that is best for our members or our community.
As we have throughout, we will continue to monitor the situation. As things improve in the area we will look for the first prudent time to start assembling together again. Until that time, let us pray that the Lord will continue to bless us to meet virtually. That we might continue to worship and praise Him.
Our prayers are with you daily,
