At a time like this, the Gospel must still go out. Please help us help these small churches to do just that.
Pulpit & Pen has spent thousands of dollars already sending out webcams to small congregations (50 people and under) to stream their services in the wake of coronavirus (thanks to our Patreon supporters for that). Although Fellowship Baptist Church will continue to meet due to the age of their congregation, their proximity to an outbreak, or state or local orders to quarantine. Additionally, some churches will continue to meet regardless but have a large percentage of elderly church members unable to come due to the contagiousness of the virus.
We want to help churches who requested assistance after we announced our web-cam give-away yesterday. Honestly, we did not anticipate the response.
Sadly, our lack of anticipation was probably due to our privilege. In a financially stable church, we have financial reserves to ride out hard times. But many churches do not. You might ask why a church can’t afford a $100 webcam. The answer is that their membership is struggling with lay-offs and with utilizing their own personal reserves to set aside food and other supplies. Additionally, canceled church services leads to shrinking offerings. We do not blame small congregations for pinching their pennies at a time like this.
P&P has slowed down some reporting in order to help with this ministry of helping get out the Gospel on Sunday mornings in churches all across the world in the midst of this pandemic. Can you help us?
Please donate at the Go Fund Me link here. If you can’t give, please share this post to help get out the word.
Therefore, as ye abound in every thing, in faith, and utterance, and knowledge, and in all diligence, and in your love to us, see that ye abound in this grace also (2 Corinthians 8:7).
