Well, it's happened, just like we knew it would... the City of Burleson has issued a stay-at-home declaration for non essential businesses. So that means I'll be working from home for the most part. We ARE allowed to have a production team at the church to record or stream services and we plan to do that. Watch the video below to see how your smiling face can be "present" with us while we worship!
A new Prayer Request page is up and running on our website. Send us any prayer requests you have and we will add them to the page which you can find in the drop down menu under Contact Us. More than ever, we need to be lifting each other up in prayer.

"Are we almost there?" The dreaded question asked by every child on a road trip! And this is going to be a long "trip" for all of us! There may have been some confusion on the projected date to resume classes at BAS. We are following State Guidelines which state schools will remain closed through the first week of April. However, as we have all seen, this situation is in constant flux and nothing is certain at this time. Principal Rangel will keep all parents updated and we will do our best to keep information consistent and current. Hang in there, parents!
We sincerely hope all of you are remaining well. If you do start feeling ill, please do not rush to the ER or Clinic; you will only expose others or risk contacting something you don't already have. Stay home, treat the symptoms, and call your doctor if your symptoms worsen. We've included the Coronavirus Hotline number that you can call at any time to speak to a nurse.
The Adventist-Laymen's Services and Industries (ASI) has shared some excellent resources on how to avoid infection and boost your immune system. Check out their videos and articles here.
Pastor Kevin mentioned in his video yesterday that there would be video instructions on how to use Adventist Online Giving. Unfortunately there is not an official instructional video available, so we created step by step instructions using screenshots. You can find those instructions on our home page under the Giving tab.
Hey boys and girls! (and moms and dads) Pastor Orland posted a message to you on Facebook and would love to hear back from you! Click here to check it out!
Watch a video message from Pastor Kevin here.
Pastor Kevin was informed by the President of the Texas Conference that as of yesterday, 3/17/20, all churches will be closed for 30 days. In order to continue providing a worship experience as best as we can, we will be linking you from this page to a pre-recorded service for this Sabbath. There will be something fun for the children, a link to the Hope Channel for the Adult Sabbath School Lesson, and a Message of Hope from Pastor Kevin.
There are some things we can continue to do as normal! One of those is to continue to worship through giving. You can utilize the online giving app from this website, or if you prefer, you can drop your tithe in the locked mailbox at the north entrance of the church (office).

It may be several weeks before we can worship together as a church family. Let this be a place where you can find updates from your church leadership, links to informative sites, and encouragement in this time of uncertainty.
As of 3/14/20 the Church Board has voted to suspend our regular church services for the weeks of 3/21 and 3/28. The reality is it will likely be longer than that and we will definitely keep you updated here.
Here are some links to keep you informed of the latest developments and guidelines from the CDC, the NAD, and the City of Burleson.
