Andalusia Bible Church’s service updates:
We asked you to pray
for wisdom for our leaders locally and nationally when instituting policies to
protect people from the spread of the virus. We’re endeavoring to honor the
President’s wisdom and guidance to not have gatherings larger than 10 people for
at least 15 days.
Beginning this Sunday,
March 22 until at least Wednesday, April 1, All Sunday and Wednesday services
will be cancelled. Pastor Tim will be posting a message on the Andalusia Bible
Church Facebook page. So be sure to check that out.
Keep praying and take
authority over fear, knowing that “God has not given us a spirit of fear, but
of power, love and a sound mind” (2 Timothy 1:7)
Remember the authority
given to us as believers “to trample on serpents and scorpions and over all the
power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” (Luke 10:19)
Continue to declare
and decree that the Coronavirus will cease worldwide, and that God will heal
all who are currently affected by it. (Job 22:28)
We are making it easy to continue in the spirit
of tithing and giving by making an online option via PayPal by clicking on the PayPal button on the "Contact Us" page on this website or you can mail in your tithe/giving
to ABC, PO Box 1441, Andalusia, AL 36421.
Let’s continue to live
our lives wisely, yet fearlessly and in faith.
God is faithful and we
will see victory in this!

Andalusia Bible Church thoughts
concerning the COVID-19 situation:
We are all mindful of
the current health climate with COVID-19 and want you to know that we are
taking advantage of the practical safety precautions available to us.
In light of all of
this, we want to share with you our thoughts on practical spiritual steps you
can take to protect yourself and your family, as we all walk in faith and
proclaim the truth of God’s word over every situation we face.
- PRAY Psalm 91 over your family
and over this nation. ”If you make the Lord your refuge, if you make the Most
High your shelter, no evil will conquer you; no plague will come near your
home.” (Psalm 91: 9-10)
- TAKE AUTHORITY OVER FEAR,
knowing that “God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a
sound mind” (2 Timothy 1:7)
- REMEMBER THE AUTHORITY GIVEN TO
US AS BELIEVERS “to trample on serpents and scorpions and over all the power of
the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” (Luke 10:19)
- PRAY FOR WISDOM FOR OUR LEADERS
locally and nationally when instituting policies to protect people from the
spread of the virus. (1 Timothy 2:1-2)
- DECLARE AND DECREE THAT THE
CORONAVIRUS WILL CEASE WORLDWIDE, and that God will heal all who are currently
affected by it. (Job 22:28)
It's also good to
remember the common-sense steps that you can take to prevent spread of the
Coronavirus disease, such as washing your hands often with soap and water and
staying home if you experience any symptoms.
We also want to use
wisdom in how we interact with one another. Church as usual has always included
warm greetings, hugs, hand shakes, etc.
In the weeks ahead,
during times of fellowship, we ask that you be mindful and respectful of those
who might wish to be less demonstrative in their greetings.
As always, we are
committed to providing a safe and sanitized space for our children and
volunteers who serve in our Nursery, Pre-school, Children’s Church classes.
With this in mind:
- We will be cleaning and
disinfecting more frequently.
- If your child is sick, please
do not check them into their class at ABC at this time. They should be fever or
symptom-free for 24 hours before being checked in.
- Volunteers should also stay
home if they feel sick.
- We will contact you if we see
your child showing ANY signs of illness, and will request you dismiss yourself
from the worship service to pick up your child.
If you are not feeling
well, you can watch our service live via Facebook Live.
We look forward to
seeing you in church Sunday! When you come, you can expect to be encouraged in
the Lord and, we believe, better equipped to handle the onslaught of fear that
is coming our way as the latest developments are reported. Let’s continue to
live our lives wisely, yet fearlessly.
Pastor Tim & Wanda
