College Station, Texas
Dear brothers and sisters,
We are in the midst of a painful and dangerous time in this world. Whether we like it or not there is a virus among us for which as yet there is no answer. In order to live up to our calling as pastors and teachers our first priority now must be your health and wellbeing. Consequently, we are suspending our worship services as well as weekday meetings. You will be updated as to any changes as they may happen. The cities of Bryan and College Station have issued Declarations of Disaster. The number of people able to congregate cannot exceed 10. This is enforceable by police and fire departments.
All christians understand that the church is the people and not the building. John 3:16 declares God's love for His highest creation. Jesus declared , “ Upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” Be prayerful, take care of each other as the Lord carries us through this challenge. Let us do what is best for others as well as ourselves.
There is an old African Proverb which says, “ If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” Walk together my beloved family. God will see us through. I love you all.
Yours for His sake,
Pastor M.O. Cooper
“A Fellowship of Believers
Where everybody is Somebody and
Christ is King”
To all who would know God and His will. To all who would live and serve to make a Christian world. To all who seek comfort and would find rest. To old and young, wise and unlearned, rich and poor, saint and sinner, this church opens its doors and in the name of Jesus Christ bid welcome to our Father's House.
