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,
