    Last night, we had a meeting of all of our Ministry, Administrative, Staff, and Deacon leaders to discuss our plans for the next few weeks. Here's what we want you to know:

    Cancellations: as mentioned on Monday, ALL on-campus and off-campus activities at the Tyler Campus and South Campus are cancelled until further notice.

    Sunday Worship: Pastor David and GABC Tyler worship will live stream a worship service each Sunday at 10:30am. You can find this service at www.livestream.com/gabclive/live. The feed will also be shared to the GABC South Facebook page on Sunday morning.

    SMBS: We will live feed the SMBS lesson on our GABC South Facebook page at 9:45am on Sunday mornings.

    WEBS: We will live feed the SMBS lesson on our GABC South Facebook page at 6:00pm on Wednesday evening, beginning March 25th.

    Offerings: Even though we're not meeting physically, there are still bills and expenses the church must cover. Please continue to give during this pause in ministries. You can give online at www.gabc.org/give, or mail your offering to GABC South, 1010 CR 137, Flint, TX 75762. Whether you give online or by mail, PLEASE REMEMBER to indicate that your offering is for the South Campus. Thank you for your faithfulness!

    Contact: The Personnel Team has recommended our staff work remotely for the next few weeks. That means there will not be anyone answering the phones at the office, but staff will be answering their email, and available by cell phones. Please call us or email as needed. Especially feel free to call Pastor Dustin if you have any need, concern, or question. If you don't have his number, email him at dustins@mail.gabc.org, and let him know you need him to give you a call.

    Letter: A physical letter is being mailed out today, Wednesday, to church members to let them know more details about changes.

    Schedule Changes

    WEBS: Wednesday Evening Bible Study is cancelled for March 18th.

    Wednesday Meals: We will postpone beginning our new Wednesday night meals as long as kids are still out of school, which for now includes March 18th.

    Game Night: Game Night on March 20th has been cancelled.

    CERT Family Day @ The ROC: This March 21st event has been cancelled.

    Gary Jordan’s 10 Year Anniversary Celebration: The March 22nd celebration has been postponed until a later date.

    I Still Believe” Movie Viewing: We will not officially encourage you to attend the “I Still Believe” movie on March 22nd. Instead, we would encourage you to go watch it, and take some friends with you, at a safer time.

    Donuts with Dustin: IF we do have Donuts with Dustin on March 29th, we will ONLY serve food bought and served by our events team. WE WILL NOT SERVE FOOD BROUGHT TO THE CHURCH BY MEMBERS.


    Gathering and Worship Changes

    Offering: Offerings will be collected using the offering pedestal in the lobby, as well as on the tables at both main entrances to the worship center. You can also give online at gabc.org/give. When you do, be sure to select Green Acres South as the designated area you want your offerings to go toward.

    Greeting & Parting Songs: We will not have our usual meet and greet time during the worship service until it is deemed OK to do so. We will also not hold hands as we sing our parting song.

    Hugging & Shaking Hands: It seems awful to recommend NOT showing these symbols of love and affection, but for the sake of all those here, it is wise to keep physical contact to a minimum. The worst thing that could happen would be to spread the virus, unknowingly, to others.


    Sanitation

    Our meeting areas are being sanitized during and following each service. Our kids areas have been completely sanitized, and will be continually cleaned during any gatherings. Soap and additional hand sanitizing areas are being made available.
