Week of September 20th, 2020

Lakehills Bapitst Church has resumed in-sanctuary service on Sunday starting at 10:30A.M. Services will continue online and also at 10:30AM. Adult Sunday School class in the education building will resume September 13th (9:15A.M.) and Wednesday evening service September 16that 6:30PM in the sanctuary. The Youth are now meeting on Wednesday evenings with Youth Leaders Caleb and Bethany.

There will be a Leadership Meeting of all people in a church leadership position (Deacons, Committee heads, etc) on Sunday, Sept 27, immediately following the church service.  This is to hit the “reset” button now that things are beginning to open back up and we are moving forward as a church.

Alto Frio Baptist Camp is holding two retreats in October: Marriage Retreat, Oct 9-11. Men’s Retreat, Oct 29-31 Hotel, Cabin and RV lodging options are available.  Sign up on the Alto Frio website for these events.

This will be the last week (Sept 25th) at 6:30A.M. for Coffee and Donuts (Covid style) for the new school year. Come and join Pastor Chip to hand out prepackaged coffee and donuts as well as pray for our community!

As we are excited to meet again to worship and fellowship in person together we want to ensure we are doing everything we can to protect ourselves and those around us.  When returning to church we highly encourage the use of masks or face coverings.  The church will also abide by social distancing guidelines.  Families of the same house hold are encourage to sit together and others are asked to space at least six feet apart.  Hand hygiene should be done before entering and when exiting the sanctuary by means of hand washing or utilizing the wall mounted hand sanitizer.  It is important to consider others as we return to church.  Everyone has a varying degree of concern about COVID-19.  We ask that everyone is respectful of the precautions others take to prevent becoming ill.  Lastly, we ask that if you are ill, think you may be becoming ill or experiencing signs and symptoms of COVID-19, please stay home.

We appreciate your patience, continued involvement and support thru this difficult time.  We will continue to livestream Sunday morning services  going forward.  This has been a great way to reach those who are unable to come to church physically and has reached as far as California.  We ask that you continue to pray for our church, our community and our country.  We look forward to seeing you all Sunday.

Coffee & Donuts (Covid style) for New School Year has has been a huge success and has been extened for the month of September on each Friday at 6:30A.M. in front of the church.  Handing out orange juice, chocolate milk, and packaged donuts, as well as prayer for our community.  Come join the outreach!

Please be in prayer for the families in our congregation that have been touched in a variety of ways by the COVID-19 virus. Our state and nation are reaching unprecedented levels of infection and death and only God can lead us through. Prayer is our defense against this evil and we need to be mindful that all things work together for the good of those to them that love God!

Lakehills Baptist Church will go to Live Stream as usual this Sunday and for the next few Sundays.  Church leadership will be meeting every two weeks and more frequently as needed to determine the correct time to return to in person services.  I will continue to update the congregation weekly.
