Following the announcement late Friday (3/27/20) by Jasper County officials of a more restrictive stay-at-home order, the elders have announced that the regular worship services of the Buna Church of Christ and the small Sunday worship groups that temporarily took their place immediately after the COVID-19 disruption began have been cancelled until the stay-at-home order is lifted.
This difficult decision seeks to balance the command to worship as a congregation on the first day of the week (I Cor. 11:18, Heb. 10:24-25) and the command to obey the government (I Pet. 2:13), especially in the presence of the practical necessities of a medical emergency.
Our members are asked to make every effort to (i) maintain communication connections with each other, especially with those who might be in need and to (ii) maintain habits of worship, including giving, as intimate family/friend groups.
