Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I pray that you and your family are doing well. I have kept each of you in my prayers and I look forward with great anticipation when we are all together again. These past weeks have indeed been a challenge for us all. But, it has indeed strengthened our Faith and made us realize how blessed we are when we “Get to go to church!” Greater Fairview, please understand that we are not the victims, but the victors through Jesus Christ who loves us.
As your Pastor, I will continue to labor along with the essential staff members who are helping me bring you a quality and excellent worship service from the house of God each week. We will continue with our virtual church services until the Lord directs us to reenter the building. I pray that each and every one of you are participating in the following services:
- Sunday Morning & Wednesday Night Bible Class via Facebook Live
- Sunday School via Conference Call
- Morning Prayer (Mon-Fri) via Conference Call
- Salt & Light Impact via Zoom Video Call
- Prayer Warriors Intercessory Prayer via Conference Call
Greater Fairview, I want to personally thank you for your faithfulness in the giving of tithes and offerings during this pandemic. Your giving is a testament of your faith and your commitment to God and to GFMBC. His hand is on us and thank you for demonstrating the Increase, Overflow and Favor!
I encourage you to stay close to the Lord during these trying times as this too will pass. The Word of the Lord tells us,
“Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.” I Cor. 15:58.
I know that we will get through these challenging times together. I love you and I am praying for you daily.
In His Service,
Rev. Vincent V. Russell
Senior Pastor Greater Fairview Missionary Baptist Church
