Coronavirus Update

Louisiana Baptists Update (03-17-20)

Revised 03/23/20 – 2:00 pm

In keeping with the requests of our federal, state and local officials regarding efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19, also known as the Coronavirus, we are directing our state missions staff to work remotely through April 12.

All events for the remainder of March and April have been canceled or postponed. Events in May and beyond will be re-evaluated in mid-April.

Your state missions staff will be available via email and phone during this period.

Resources to help you navigate these uncharted waters are being developed and will be available on our website.

Be faithful to pray for and encourage each other as well as our leaders.

Be faithful in giving to the Lord through your church. This can be done online if your church offers that option or you can mail your tithe to your church.

While these are unprecedented times, these are also wonderful opportunities for spiritual growth and outreach. If you’ve fallen behind in your Bible reading, now’s a good time to catch up. If you’re engaged with the “Who’s Your One?” emphasis, continue to pray for them and reach out to them during this time. More than likely people will be in front of their TV’s and on their devices more than normal so visit HereforYou.org and share your favorite Here for You commercial. Pray God will draw people’s attention to the commercials they’ll see on broadcast and cable TV as well on social media. Pray the seed of God’s truth will find good soil and water the seeds that have already been scattered. Ask God to prepare some of the hearts for harvest in the days ahead.

Even the midst of uncertainty, God is faithful. May He find us faithful during this time as well.
