Dear New Beginnings Family & Friends:
I pray this email finds each of you well.
I write to inform you that at the request of our bishop, Debra Wallace-Padgett, and local government and health officials, the church building will remain closed through Friday, April 17, 2020. All in-person worship services, Bible studies, meetings, rehearsals, and outside groups meeting in our church have been canceled.
It saddens my heart that we will not meet in-person during Holy Week and on Easter Sunday; however, we must take precautions to protect one another in this season. We are all aware of the justifiable concern there is about the coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic and the best thing that we can do for one another is to "shelter-in-place" and spend time with God in prayer.
Even though we will not meet in person, we will remain connected in several ways. Below you will find information to utilize and share with others as we seek to do God's Kingdom work in new and renewed ways. As always, in the event of a pastoral care emergency or a congregational concern, please do not hesitate to contact us by phone (205-328-3937) or email (
. The church leadership and I will be happy to do all we can to assist you in this time.
Dr. Dedric A. Cowser
