WRITTEN TO OBBC ON MARCH 21, 2020
Dear Friends of Ocean Breeze Baptist Church,
Tomorrow, Sunday March 22, will mark the first Lord's Day I haven't been in church in more than 35 years! I am so sad about it and just a little bit mad about it too. I would like to encourage you to spend some time in worship with your family tomorrow. Perhaps you could have a time together as a family: sing a few songs, pray together, and read God's Word with one another.
Tuning in to an online church service might be helpful too. For me, it's just not the same as being "assembled" together but it's better than nothing. Our son, Keith Birdsong, will be conducting an online service on Facebook Live at 8:00 am local time (remember there's a three hour time difference between here and Massachusetts). The name of his church is Bellingham Bible Baptist Church. If you want something in our time zone then check out Pastor Trieber's online service from North Valley Baptist Church in Santa Clara, California. Their web address is NVBC.ORG.
Let me issue a BIG "Thank You" to those who came out for our Church Work Day today: Brian Shultz, Teresa Shultz, Ashley Shultz, Jerry Bond, Haylie Cole, Jeff Hall, David Henderson, Kristy Roberts, Naconna Gentry, Samantha Gentry, and Charlotte Birdsong. We got a lot of work done and we all enjoyed a beautiful day and good fellowship together.
Finally, please remember that Charlotte and I love you and are praying for you. It is an honor to be the pastor of OBBC. Let's not forget that Romans 8:28 is still in the Bible!
I'll see you here, there, or in the air,
I Corinthians 4:2
