COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Response

Updated: Friday, June 19, 2020

Bowles Family,

In light of the continued national emergency due to the spread of the COVID-19 virus our President, State, and Local officials have asked all of us to limit our personal contacts and group events to help prevent further spreading the virus.  Bowles has implemented a plan to do online services when we can't meet in person.  We will review the current plan as orders from Dallas County are modified.

At this time, the only in-person service is our Sunday morning English service at 11 AM.

Guidelines for congregation:

  • Temperature will be taken for each individual at the Rinehart Street entrance of the Sanctuary.
  • Short screening questions will be posted and asked prior to entering the church.
  • Please wear masks at all times while inside the building. Masks will be provided if you don’t have one.
  • Please observe physical distancing of six feet as recommended by CDC.
  • We strongly recommend no hugs, no handshakes, and no physical contact while inside the building.

We will be using the Facebook Live feature on our Bowles Baptist Church page for our online services: 

  • Sunday morning English Service (11 AM), Sunday morning Spanish Service (12:15 PM),
  • Wednesday Evening English Service (7 PM), Wednesday Evening  Spanish Service (7:45 PM)

We will not have Sunday School (Sunday 9:45AM CT) and the Sunday Evening Service (6 PM CT) at this time.

Please consider alternative methods to continue with your tithes and offerings during this time in order that the church will be able to pay our monthly bills.  One option is online giving via PayPal.  There is a Donate button here on our website for that purpose.  You can call the church office to work out the logistics for other options or if you have any issues with the PayPal donations.

Don't forget your personal Bible study and prayer time during this difficult period.  The Bible gives us reassurance during unsettling times like this:

Isaiah 41:10

"Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand."

 

If you have needs of any type, please don't hesitate to contact us:

  • Pastor Art via his cell phone (713-726-6889)
  • Church Office which is answered at all times (972-262-6122).  

 

Blessings,

Pastor Arturo Malacara
