Updated 4.02.2020 – Mt View Baptist Coronavirus response,
After much prayer and thought we have decided to cancel all church gatherings/services at our campus for Mt. View Baptist Church through Friday, May 1st due to State and Federal stay at home mandates regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. We will be following government recommendations and resume as soon as advisable. We will evaluate a possible return on Sunday, May 3rd.
In the meantime let us care for ourselves, our families, and our communities. Here are some ideas for maintaining a vibrant spiritual life during the time that we are apart.
- Daily prayer and Bible reading.
Read through the Book of Romans.
Read A.W. Tozer’s The Pursuit of God.
Keep a journal of your thoughts and prayers during this time of uncertainty.

- As you pray, be sure to pray for all those around us who will be affected in many ways by current events. Some people will be sick. Some will not have rent money. Some will have no food. Pray for God to direct relief efforts to care for these people and, as you pray, be willing to be God’s answer to some of the hurting people. In his book on the rise of Christianity in the early years of the church, sociologist Rodney Stark observed that the compassion shown by the church during times of plague was key to untold numbers converting to Christianity. While using common sense, watch for the opportunities God gives you to minister to family, friends, and neighbors who need to see the love of Christ lived out through you.
