Special Update: What can your church do now?
The COVID-19 health crisis is far from over. You may wonder what your church will look like once you’re finally able to resume regular activities. I’m sure some pastors are wondering how they will meet financial obligations or even get a paycheck.
There is no certainty regarding when this crisis will end, but I am thankful for various resources to help as we continue to minister during this challenging time:
- National Center for Life and Liberty (NCLL) led by David Gibbs III has compiled several categories of resources, some informational and others financial. You can go to http://NCLL.org. I urge you to begin now to determine what you need and where to go for help, especially if you have staff.
- Preschool & Christian School Update
- Stay-at-Home Update
- Funding Options
- Employment Challenges
- 211.org is a government resource which may be able to provide “assistance finding food, paying housing bill, or other essential services.” You can research on the web site at 211.org/services/covid19 or call 211 to speak with someone to see what is available in your area.
VAIB is so thankful for those who continue to support during this difficult time and hopes that, while we continue to trust in God, we will remember there are resources available to get us through this time.
