Friends,

I wanted to send a quick communication regarding a few inquiries we’ve 
received in light of this current season of sickness and what we’re doing 
to try and keep things clean. Many of you may not be aware, but each week 
we have a cleaning team that tackles the custodial duties of BBF. We also 
have, as part of our regular rhythm of cleaning, extra details covered in 
the nursery. Nate, as the overseer of our children’s ministry, is working 
on ramping up some of our classroom cleaning procedures, and Bob, as our 
elder over grounds and maintenance, is taking steps to go above and beyond 
in some deeper cleaning practices overall. All that said, efforts are 
being taken that simply tend to be better routine steps in all seasons of 
heightened illness.

A few reminders that are always good to keep in mind for us as a church 
family:

1. If you are sick, stay home. Do everyone a favor and keep your germs to 
yourself. We record the sermons, so if you’re worried about missing one, 
you can listen to it online. 
2. Remember the advice of your mother and be sure to was your hands with 
soap, often. 
3. Finally, lets not forget that God has given us a spirit, not of 
timidity, but of power, love, and self control (2 Timothy 1:7). It’s times 
like these that we ought not walk in fear. We serve a sovereign God who is 
still on the throne and holds eternity in His hands. We want to be wise 
but not scared, and it’s because of this that in times like these, the 
church shines. Walk in wisdom, pray fervently, and serve without shame.

Please know I am praying for you all and hope you do experience the joy of 
the Lord this day. May God bless you all richly as we build bridges and 
build family together, for His glory.
