A Prayer for the Eighth Week of Virtual Church

O Lord our God, when we began meeting virtually eight Sundays ago, we had no idea we would still be meeting virtually on Mother’s Day. Yet, many congregations are still meeting virtually or have discovered innovative ways to gather.

Spiritually, Easter was difficult as that is such an important Sunday during the church year. The resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus the Christ is the core foundational experience of our faith relationship with You.

A New Way to Donate to CMBA

There is a new way to make congregation or individual contributions to the Columbia Metro Baptist Association. In cooperation with the Baptist Foundation of South Carolina and LifeWay Christian Resources donors can go to https://columbiametro.org/donate/. Donations can be made by eCheck, Debit Card, or Credit Card. eCheck is the cheapest, and costs less than the cost of a stamp. The regular and generous contributions from our congregations and individuals makes possible our ministry with almost 100 congregations, and missional efforts in the Midlands of South Carolina.

Our One Priority Briefing and the Our One Priority Briefing Online Gathering are made possible by the financial gifts of the member and network congregations of the Columbia Metro Baptist Association at www.ColumbiaMetro.org, CMBA@ColumbiaMetro.org, or 803.619.7110. To donate go to https://columbiametro.org/donate/. Gifts can be made to the general fund, to hunger ministry, or to disaster response.
