Coronavirus (COVID-19) ResponseMorrison Heights Baptist Church
Caring for the Physical and Spiritual Needs of our Congregation
With the heightened awareness and public concerns regarding the risk of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we want to assure you that Morrison Heights is staying up-to-date on the latest information available. We are committed to providing our community a safe and wholesome environment in which to worship, grow, and be discipled.
MAINTAINING A CLEAN ENVIRONMENT
During this time, we have enhanced our already-thorough cleaning procedures throughout our campus and encourage you to join us in keeping our campus free from this risk. We have cancelled all on-campus activities and are asking people to refrain from traveling to our campus unless necessary. A temporary collection box has been setup inside the main office door for collection of tithes and offerings. Second Harvest food donations (we are temporarilly discontinuing collection of clothing items) may be dropped off in a collection bin located at the corner of the Student Building.
The Missions Office is carefully evaluating all upcoming short-term mission trips. While adjustments to our schedule may be made, we will continue to plan and recruit for scheduled mission trips as we monitor the situation of each destination. As a church, we will follow the lead of the IMB, NAMB, and other workers in the field to help determine the safety of travel within designated areas.
Travel involving indivuals most at-risk (senior adults, those with underlying conditions) is also being evaluated. Scheduled trips may be cancelled or postponed as necessary. Registered indivuals will be notified of any changes and plans to reschedule as soon as possible.
All on-campus activities have been cancelled at this time. Select services and workshops will be streamed on Facebook Live at their regularly scheduled time.
In order to keep our children safe, all children’s activities have been suspended. Additional care will be taken in cleaning and sanitizing common areas and surfaces. We strongly ask parents with sick children to remain at home during this time.
At this time senior adults appear to be most at-risk for experiencing significant outcomes from COVID-19. As such, we ask senior adults to carefully consider their risks and make decisions accordingly. We will continue to love and care for our senior adult community in every way possible.
HELP IS AVAILABLE
Please let us know if there is any way we as a church family and staff can help meet your physical and spiritual needs. If you have a need for assistance please contact us at our main church number at 601.924.5620.
Morrison Heights encourages everyone to practice good personal hygiene, continue to care for one another, and commit to pray for those affected by this virus throughout the US and other countries.
