Green Valley Baptist Association closes its offices for remainder of 2020
Karen Totton, Bill Patterson, and Jeff Burke will work from home beginning tomorrow, Dec.8th for the remainder of this year. As badly as we hate to do this, the rising cases of COVID in our area necessitate the action. Over a million new cases of COVID were found in the US in the last five days. In our three county area the numbers are also increasing. CDC Director Robert R. Redfield says the number of Americans killed by COVID-19 could double in the coming months and will soon pass the number of American soldiers killed in World War 2. Redfield believes this winter will be "the most difficult time in the public health history of this nation." Dr. Deborah Birx, response coordinator for the White House Coronavirus Task Force, warned yesterday, "This is the worst event this country will face, not just from a public health side."
Your associational workers will re-evaluate in January and will return to office hours as soon as possible. In the meantime, do not hesitate to call. The Green Valley Baptist Association number, which is now a cell number, and will be answered. Karen, Jeff, and I also will answer your calls and continue our work from home.
What a sad way to enter Christmas holidays! However, as Scripture says, “This too shall pass.” Have a safe and joy-filled Christmas, keeping Christ first in your hearts! Love in Christ, Bill Patterson
