Greetings To All:
We are going to change the way we collect our tithes and offerings. For your safety and convenience, please do not bring the tithes and offerings directly to the church. As of Friday, April 3rd, 2020 we will begin mailing our tithes and offering to the church post office box.
Now I know that many of you are asking, “why can’t I just mail my tithes and offering directly to the church?” That is a legitimate question and I will give you a legitimate answer: I Don’t Know! Just kidding. The reason I ask that you use the post office box is because there may be people who scan these pages that may not have the best of intentions for our church. In fact, they may have criminal intentions. The point is this, unauthorized people may be able to get to our physical mailbox before we do. Unauthorized people cannot get into our post office box.
Please use the following address for mailing tithes and offerings:
South Middleburg Baptist Church, P.O. Box 1557, Middleburg, Florida 32050. (Please note that the zip code for our post office box is different than the zip code for our physical address).
I pray that you all are all faring well during the current conditions caused by this hideous virus. Just remember, we will emerge triumphant on the other side and I truly believe that God will use this time to make us stronger and wiser. Ovid once said, “have patience and endure; this unhappiness will one day be beneficial.” Take a moment and think back about all of the trials of your life that have caused so much pain and heartache for a season but in turn those trials have made you much stronger.
Just remember, YOU are important to God. YOU are His child. YOU are His creation and I hasten to remind you just how important you are to God: “But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.” Luke 12:7.
God bless you all and I truly long to see your smiling faces in fellowship and from the vantage point of the pulpit (yes, I truly miss it!). When we do get to congregate together again I promise to button my shirt sleeves for at least three weeks in a row. (This is for the benefit of one particular lady in the church – I can’t divulge her name but she is married to Dick Metheny).
Call me if you have need and please take of yourselves.
