Dear Member, 

Nothing is more precious than the sharing of the love of God among believers. Words can not express my longing to see you and embrace you in person. Although we must follow the advice of healthcare professionals as we practice social distancing, I truly miss the hugs, the fellowship, the smiles, the live “Amens” and “Preach Rev,” responses from you that connects pastor and people as I share the love of God and sweet communion of the holy spirit with you each week.

Thankful family, please know that we are constantly praying for you as we make it through this covid-19 pandemic as a nation and as a church.  My prayer for you is that the arms of the Lord would continue to protect you and provide for you. Please know that our officers and I love you and we are here for you! Until we meet again, we want to keep you connected to your church. Every Sunday at 11:00 a.m. I will be broadcasting a weekly message via Facebook, YouTube, and our church website. Also, our music ministry will lead us in worship thru song. During the week, I’ll be uploading bible studies and each Wednesday, lead us in prayer ministry using Facebook live and YouTube live.

Please keep our community in prayer as all of us have witnessed Saints in our area face infection and some face death due to the COVID-19 virus.  That is why, I’ve been praying for spiritual covering, healing and restoration of those infected, in Jesus’ Name, as we continue to trust in the Lord for our protection.

Finally, I ask for your prayers as I’ve taken the role as a one man film crew, videoing, editing, producing and uploading our virtual church services every week. In addition to preaching, teaching, counseling members, studying God’s word, daily praying, seeking God’s face for direction, inspiration and wisdom, I also personally manage Thankful Baptist Church’s social media pages on Facebook, YouTube and our church’s website.  Many, many hours goes into managing and adding content each week to our social media platforms to keep us connected and fed with God’s Word. It’s a BIG job, but with God’s grace I will continue using all the technical as well as ecclesiastical skills God’s bless me to have. In response, over 2000 people view our broadcast each week on social media! 

I thank God for our musicians, Min. Kelvin Moore, Wayne Preston, Roshane Grant, and Ralph Godbee II and volunteer choir members for providing music each week for Sunday Virtual church to bless you and people all over our area with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Thank you for being faithful to our virtual church and for your continued financial support through your tithes and offering.  Your generosity during this pandemic has been uplifting. 

For your convenience we’ve added online giving through Givelify mobile phone App. Just down load the app, sign up and you can give securely from your smart phone or tablet each week. You can also mail your offering to Thankful Baptist Church, 302 Walker St. Augusta, Georgia 30901.

In closing, I’m asking you to continue to pray for our Thankful family, and I will continue to pray for you, as we watch together God keep us safe through these difficult times. I love you and God bless you!

Your Humble Servant and Pastor, 

Rev. Christopher J. Waters
