Update March 31, 2020
Our plan at this moment is to have our second conversation on May 17, the date originally scheduled for our third meeting. So, keep May 17 on your calendar!
The work of the transition continues to move ahead, albeit on a somewhat less certain schedule. As with everything else going on around us right now, we will stay flexible and creative going forward and will adapt however we need to.
When we began this interim process together back in January, no one, and I do mean not one of us, could have imagined we would be in this situation. Church, by definition, necessitates people being together in corporate worship, fellowship, and ministry. Remember, “Where two or three are gathered in my name there I will be also” (Matthew 18:20). Our togetherness has been altered and certainly the way we “do church” has changed drastically. I have been impressed and inspired by the way First Baptist Wilmington has been “church” in these trying days.
