Dear Sooke Baptist Congregation,
Praying that you are all well…  
 
As you are all aware of current events due to COVID-19, Sooke Baptist will continue to follow what we have currently in place for the month of April to ensure we follow what is outlined by the BC Health Officer recommendation as it pertains to social distancing and self-quarantine.
Sunday services: SBC will continue to be LiveStreamed every Sunday morning at 10:00 am on the Sooke Baptist Facebook site.  We have had a great number of viewers over the last few weeks!  If you are not able to view it at 10:00 am please know that you can always view the service at a later time.
 
Gatherings for Alpha, Big House Breakfast, SYNC, Worship Practice, Seniors Meetings, and any other internal / external events will continue to be placed on hold.
Some of our Life Groups are taking advantage of technology to meet remotely. Our Church Board has been meeting twice a week on Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings using remote Technology as well.  We spend this time praying for and discussing our Church and Community.
Financially, we have reduced some of our operating expenses during COVID-19 (reducing the heating of the church when not in use, etc) but we still have ongoing expenses to cover. Please continue to contribute your offering by dropping off your envelope at the church (please call ahead to make sure there is someone available).  We also have the debit machine available.  You may also electronically donate at https://www.canadahelps.org/en/charities/sooke-baptist-church/
As Easter approaches, know that our Saviour Lives!   We have had to make changes in the way we do things due to this virus, but we are assured that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. Hebrews 13:8
If you have any questions or comments, please contact any member of the Church Board.
God Bless,  Michael Wilson, Board Chair
