CORONAVIRUS UPDATE (October 2020)

Our church schedule over the past several months has been greatly altered.

Even though the public gatherings of PBC look different, the ministry of PBC continues.

Decisions are made weekly based on national, state, and local recommendations. Our general posture is to not cancel services unless we feel it is absolutely necessary for the good of our church and our community. This is one of those times. As of now, most activities and events are suspended so we can do our best to mitigate the spread of the virus.

Our Gatherings

  • Sunday Morning Worship Service meets at 10:00 a.m., at the West Campus. Service is available for adults 45 and above. Rows and chairs are spaced out, and we ask:  1) maintain distance (no handshakes, etc.)  2) masks are recommended  3) hand sanitizers are available, and encouraged. Temperatures will be checked upon entrance. Bear with us and pray for wisdom as we move forward. This service is also live-streamed on Facebook Live.

Communication and Prayer

  • Please stay in touch with each other particularly regarding those who are limited in the mobility and the elderly; phone calls, cards, letters, etc..
  • Please share with us any unexpected needs you have and prayer request; email pbc@providencealive.com
  • We will do our best to keep you informed as we make changes or see needs. In the days ahead we will update our Facebook page and this website page

Helping the Community

  • Support the local food bank www.foodbankofeastalabama.com
  • Give blood East Alabama Medical Center receives 100 percent of its blood supply from the LifeSouth Community Blood Centers, with the vast majority coming from the blood center on the main EAMC campus (505 E. Thomason Circle, Opelika). The blood supply in America is facing an unprecedented challenge due to COVID-19. Large numbers of blood drives are being canceled daily and donors are increasingly practicing social distancing, as they should. Hospitals are likely to see critical shortages of blood products occur in the near term if the trajectory does not change. If you are healthy and able, we encourage you to call the local LifeSouth office at 334-705-0884 to schedule an appointment. LifeSouth is limiting the number of donors in the center at one time so as to keep donors and staff at appropriate distances. They are doing the same at their blood drive buses.

Trust God

In a message from Ronnie W. Floyd, President & CEO SBC Executive Committee, “May this be a generational moment when the Lord revives His church in America, and His Spirit ushers in the next Great Awakening in the United States of America. May it set a new path forward for our nation in every way, and set our hearts focused as never before on reaching every person for Jesus Christ in every town, every city, every state and every nation. We are praying for you.”
