Coronavirus Update

On behalf of the Joint Board of Friedberg, due to growing outbreak of the coronavirus, and in keeping with the guidance we have received from the Centers for Disease Control, the North Carolina Governor’s office, the Department of Health and Human Services and other government health agencies, as well the recommendation of our Provincial Elders Conference, we are going to suspend ALL church activities (including Sunday School and worship) beginning THIS Sunday, March 15 through the end of the month.

During this time period, we will continue to have worship services, but they will be available online only.

We are asking that only those essential to offering the worship service online be present at the church on Sunday mornings. So please make plans to participate in worship online at 11 am via the online livestream. 

If you are a member of the Friedberg Friends email group, you will soon be receiving an email message containing a link that will take you directly to the livestream on Sunday mornings. That email will also include a link to the online giving portal as well as important information regarding steps you can take to help prevent the spread of illness. The links and other information will also be posted on the church’s Facebook page.

Please know that this decision was made with much prayer and consideration. And we announce it to you with heavy hearts. We ask for your support and understanding as we implement this decision. 

More importantly, we ask you to join us in praying for those around the world who are being impacted by the spread of this disease. Pray for those infected, the families of those who have lost their lives, those providing care and relief, and those making important decisions.

Thank you, brothers and sisters in Christ.

May God continue to bless and guide us all.

Pastor Jim Newsome
