Dear Friends,

The Town of Groton has announced that all schools will be closed for a minimum of two weeks, beginning tonight at 5:00pm.

In light of this community decision, we will cancel worship services and “Bread and Broth” for the next two weeks as well. We will tentatively plan to resume Sunday services on March 29th but may need to re-evaluate before then.

Thank you all for your help, patience and understanding as we journey together through these difficult days.

With steady prayers, strong love and abiding faith in the God who cares for us all…

Pastor Claudine

Dear Members and Friends of Poquonnock Bridge Baptist Church,

In light of the current pandemic we are facing as a global community, I have been in touch with colleagues and area churches. I am in agreement that we should follow the lead of the town of Groton. When the town makes the decision to close schools and public buildings, we will temporarily close our doors and cancel worship services and all public gatherings.

Until that time, please feel free to stay at home if you decide that is best. I am doing pastoral care by phone, text and email as we all seek to honor this new form of social distancing.

Please let me know if there is anything you need to help you through these difficult days.

For the time being, we will keep the office open during its regular hours, and we will check in with one another as often as possible to ensure the health, safety and well-being of our congregation. If we gather for worship Sunday, the Council will meet following the service.

Watch for emails and the local CBS news channel for the latest cancellation notices.

May God’s spirit bind our hearts together on this journey. May our responses be measured and safe in this season of uncertainty. May we be careful, considerate and compassionate toward all of God’s people. And may we pray for the health care workers who are serving us, as well as those who are most vulnerable and most challenged among us.

With love and blessings,

Pastor Claudine

There are so many people to thank for this wonderful gift! First we thank the people from Old Mystic Baptist Church-part of your old church will now live on in our church. We would also like to thank Rick Tourjee, Dick Tourjee, John Rodearmel and Steve Champ (Marilyn Rodearmel’s son) and a friend of Steves for packing and delivering the window. Many thanks goes to patient person who cleaned it-Catherine Hiller. And no less thanks goes to Richard and Rick Tourjee and Ron Land for installing, lighting and framing it! It indeed was a labor of love and we cannot thank you enough! John created a plaque to commemorate the event and presented it to PBBC to hang near the window.
