A Message from Your Senior Pastor
Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
Sunday afternoon, the CDC issued a recommendation that all mass gatherings of 50 or more persons be cancelled for the next 8 weeks. You can read the CDC release  here .
From the moment the COVID-19 pandemic began to impact our community, I have repeatedly shared that Broadmoor will follow the science-based recommendations of the experts. Therefore, Broadmoor will be suspending all on-campus events until at least May 10 .
If the CDC issues new guidelines, either shortening or extending the length of time mass gatherings are discouraged, Broadmoor will follow them.

Monday afternoon, President Trump issued guidelines calling all Americans to work together for the next 15 days to slow the spread of COVID-19. You can read the recommendations here:  15 Days to Slow the Spread .
Friends, I cannot emphasize enough how serious this situation is.
I am counting on you to join me, and all responsible disciples of Jesus Christ in our community, to show our love of God and neighbor by adopting the guidelines issued by President Trump and the CDC.
Grace & Peace,
Rev. Donnie Wilkinson
