COVID 19 Information and Updates

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:

As of Today, Friday, May 1st, we are still practicing social distance so the church will be closed. We will be researching through the month of May and following federal, state and medical guidance to determine when we will re-open. Therefore, our next update will be on Friday, June 5th. If anything changes prior to that date, we will alert you.

Please continue to tune in to our live stream service and follow our email regarding Communion guidance for this Sunday’s service.

Also, be on the lookout for the weekly video for a special message as the Lord is still in the blessing business!

Please still be mindful of the following:

1.     All Church Activities Have Been Suspended Until Further Notice.

2.     Weekly Updates Will Be Given Every Friday Regarding Sunday Worship.

3.     Once Sunday Worship Resumes, We Will Give Guidance on Other Church Activities.

4.     Although the Physical Church Will be Closed, We will have a FB Live Broadcast and Podcast Every Sunday.

5.     Tithes and Offering Can Be Given via Web Bill Pay Instructions on Our Web Site, , Mail in or Drop off at the church using our mail slot.

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.

In Christ,

Tony H. Benson, Sr. Senior Pastor
