Members/Benevolent Baptist Society meeting
Tentatively set for Sunday, May 23, after church service. All members are asked to stay for the meeting, as we will be finalizing payment structure for the new roof.
In order to avoid confusion between local and international relief efforts, the Governing Board has elected to change the name of our Relief Fund to the Community Assistance Fund. This fund will continue to help residents of Warren, Bristol and Barrington with a one-time per year contribution of $100.00 towards a utility bill. We used to have the tradition of remembering local residents in need of assistance on Communion Sunday, the first Sunday of each month. Let’s resurrect that tradition to give what we can each month to this very worthy cause. Please remember to indicate on your check, or use the provided communion envelopes for your giving. Thank you.

Proof that Masks, Handwashing, and Social Distancing Work
According to Scientific American, influenza cases all over the globe have dropped to “minuscule levels.” We’re not seeing nearly the same numbers as we have in previous years because of the health measures in place to help slow the spread of COVID19 — hand-washing, mask-wearing, staying home when sick, and socially distancing. The publication reports approximately 600 deaths attributed to influenza during the 2020-2021 flu season in the United States, which typically peaks between December and February. Compared to previous years, where the numbers in the 2019-2020 season saw roughly 22,000 deaths, and the 2018-2019 season had more at 34,000 deaths, 600 is a 97 percent drop. So why is that happening?
The numbers are so low because the flu isn’t around. “There’s just no flu circulating,” Greg Poland, a researcher who has been studying the flu for the Mayo Clinic for decades, told Scientific American. Because of the measures in place for COVID, including increased handwashing, wearing masks, and staying home when sick, no one is out there spreading the flu either.
“It turns out if you drastically reduce global travel, close public workplaces and schools, and promote mask-wearing and handwashing, you’ll cut off opportunities for common pathogens to spread.”
We stand opposed to all forms of hate.
With the recent violent tragedies in the U.S.
in mind, below is the official stance of
American Baptist Churches against hate
and bigotry, first conceived in 1957
and added to over time.
We have discontinued the Text in Church program, due to cost, and lack of participation. Please consult this website, or follow us on facebook, to stay informed about our church. Thank you.
