TITHES AND OFFERINGS
July 12, 2021
RE: Sunday Morning Tithes and Offerings
Church Family and Friends of FBCA,
Greetings to all of you and thank you for taking a minute to read my letter. Together we thank God for His providence. He has allowed a time of testing and reflection on the brevity of life during our fight against COVID. Now we are back in church where we do best together.
I believe we have been wise by offering you a creative way to give your tithes and offerings during COVID. The podium just outside the sanctuary has provided a safe way to give back to God. However, now that the numbers of COVID cases have drastically dropped and we all carry hand sanitizer somewhere on us, we believe it is time to reinstate our traditional practice of passing the Offering Plates to one another.
Beginning August 1, 2021, please be aware that the Traditional means of gathering Tithes and Offerings will become a regular part of our morning service at First Alba. We have hand sanitizers available at the entrance/exit to the Men’s Women’s Restrooms in the sanctuary foyer. We have plastic gloves for all who want them. The offering plates will be wiped down weekly as well.
Thank you for your stewardship faithfulness over the past year. You are a blessing and a joy to pastor. May our great God continue to show us favor as we continue to show Him praise, honor, and obedience.
Grace to you all!
Dr. Kelly B. Burton, Pastor First Baptist Church Alba
