WHAT DO WE DO NOW?
The gospel never was just the “gathering” of God’s people. It’s always had the “scattering” of God’s people as a key component to the spread of the gospel. Guess what? We are scattered now! Don’t let quarantine, quarantine you from God’s people and his mission!
HOW ARE WE GOING TO DO WHAT WE DO?
There won’t be any Noon Lunch or large group gatherings or events at the BSM Building until further notice, but the BSM staff is available to you! Here are a few things we are putting in place:
Remote Discipleship. (COMING SOON)
Virtual Journey Groups. (COMING SOON)
Digital BSM Thursday Nights. (COMING SOON)
Follow us on Social Media. It’s the best way to keep up with everything.
4 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW DURING THIS TIME
GOD IS STILL ON HIS THRONE
Chances are you’ve felt like the whole world is falling apart. God is still good and God is still on his throne. Perhaps he is giving his people a platform to serve and love the world instead of cower in fear, without hope, like our nonbelieving neighbors. God has given us a spirit of power, not a spirit of fear and timidity. The gospel runs in when everyone else runs out. Don’t buy into the hysteria and fear-mongering!
THE GOSPEL CALL HASN’T CHANGED
It is times like these where the gospel has spread the quickest. World-wide panic and fear? The peace of the gospel is the cure. Isolation and broken relationships? The family of God leans in. Corona Virus may have forced us into some social distancing, but social distancing DOES NOT mean relational distancing. Pick up the phone and call. FaceTime, Google Hangout, Zoom call. Find ways to stay connect and feed each others souls. What could God do if his people who are called by his name begin to reach out to their neighbors and families? The people around you are the people who God has put in your life for a reason!
WE ARE HERE FOR YOU
The BSM staff love you and pray for you daily! How can we help you? How can we pray for you? Remember, social distancing IS NOT relational distancing! Let’s be friends…. at an appropriate 6 foot distance. ;)
SOCIAL MEDIA NEWS IS NOT YOUR FRIEND!
You know your crazy Uncle Bill who is always posting conspiracy theories? There is something about global crisis that brings out all the crazies. Chances are he is still posting stuff about aliens…. and the Corona Virus. The problem is that all your reliable news and your crazy conspiracy theories use the same social media platforms. Find reliable sources for what is happening. The Center for Disease Control and the World Health Organization are trained, specialized professionals. Trust what they are saying, not bias media outlets.
