Dear NDBF Family,
Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice! Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand! Be careful for nothing, but in everything, by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the Peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your heart and minds through Christ Jesus!! Phil 4:4-7
Amid this Pandemic, God is still on the Throne and is worthy to be praised!!! As we adjust to this new normal, we will be rolling out new opportunities to increase our communication with one another and ensure that we stay close during these times.
COVID 19 Update:
In our continued efforts to protect the health and safety of our members, we will suspend in-person attendance until 2021. We will have monthly Town Halls on the third Sunday of every month at 11:30am to update you on our COVID Plans.
Your health and safety are our priority. COVID-19 still presents a very real threat to our health, and we must be diligent in ensuring that we are doing all we can do to protect ourselves and one another.
Please continue to abide by the following Federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines to protect your health and those around you:
·Maintain social distance of at least six feet and wear face covering in public places.
·Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
·If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60 percent alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
·Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
·Follow all recommendations provided by the CDC.
If you, or someone in your household, show any COVID-19 related symptoms, please test, quarantine, and monitor yourself. If necessary, seek guidance from a health care provider and follow their instructions.
We know these are challenging times, and we are here to help and pray for you. Please contact our church office if you have any questions, concerns, or if we can assist you in any way. Matt 25:35-40
Please still be mindful of the following:
In addition, we will have our prayer line open on Tuesdays at 8:15pm so we can continue to pray for each other and our community (Dial in# 1-563-999-1142 access code 353631). Please maintain healthy habits and remember to check in on our Senior Saints and those who may have a need you can meet.
Finally, we recognize that many will have questions. This letter offers our initial answers. I know we will all be loving, patient, and committed to Christ and one another as we cope with this extraordinary challenge.
