SGBC Family News | June 26, 2020

Dear SGBC Brothers and Sisters,

Thank you, brothers and sisters, for your cooperation, so that the online “Resume Gathering Survey” can be successfully completed, from which we can better grasp the opinions of brothers and sisters on the arrangement of future physical gatherings. Based on the survey responses, we will analyze the results for future planning. In the next few weeks, we will share with you when and how to restart physical gatherings and how many stages we will have to arrange. We are not in a hurry to reopen. The pastoral and leadership team will continue to pay attention to the development of the pandemic, hoping to reopen at the most appropriate time with proper arrangement so that brothers and sisters can feel at peace and concentrate on physical worship. Please pray for the church and ask God to give us wisdom and understanding to make proper decisions.
