JULY/AUGUST 2020 NEWSLETTER
Director of Missions Notes
It has been a while since we last sent out a newsletter from the association. We are back at work in the office, and I pray that you are well. Betty and I have not stopped working for the association during all of this time. We did close the office only to check in from time to time and make sure everything was okay. We have worked from home but now we are back and working our normal hours of Monday, Wednesday, and Friday 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM. If you are not aware, our telephone number has changed. It is now 270-795-4171. Our email address has changed as well. It is now email@example.com. Please feel free to call us, email, or stop by to visit with us anytime.
As many of you know, we lost a real good friend April 22nd, Frank Spragens. Frank served as our Associational Treasurer for many years. He was highly regarded throughout the association and truly was a good friend to us all. Frank will certainly be missed. Our prayers will continue for his family.
We met as an Executive Board on June 7th at Woodlawn Baptist Church. During this meeting, we made several decisions on behalf of the Central Association. A motion was made to have Jordan Simpson, pastor of Unity Baptist Church to continue another year as our Moderator. We elected Rev. Terry McIlvoy, pastor of Rockbridge Baptist Church to serve as Vice-Moderator. Due to the passing of Frank Spragens, our Treasurer, a motion was made to move Betty Scott, our Secretary, and Assistant Treasurer, to the position of Treasurer. Another motion was made to elect Everett Greer from Thompsonville Baptist Church to serve as her assistant. It was also determined in the executive board meeting to shorten our Annual Fall Meeting at Woodlawn Baptist Church on Sunday, October 4th, 2020 to a couple of hours, and there will be no meal. This is all due to the issues with COVID-19 and social distancing. We will share more information about the time of the meeting as it becomes available.
We rescheduled a new date for the Bible Reading Marathon in Springfield. It will now be September 13th – 17th, 2020. You can register online at https://signup.com/login/entry/87699792710250001. If you have any questions or need help registering, call me at 859-336-4402.
As I close, much has changed due to COVID-19. We have had to find new ways to minister as a church. Many have shared their services on Facebook Live, Youtube, and other streaming methods. I have watched several church services online, and a couple that has conducted Vacation Bible School through Facebook. This has been awesome because it not only reaches our members but also others throughout the world. It is amazing what God has done during this time to keep the WORD alive! Keep up the good work and keep on serving the Lord.
Sincerely in Christ,
Bro. Jay Hatfield
