As we wrap up 2020 at New Church Family, we are grateful we have been able to continue in-person worship for most of the year. We did suspend services March 22 for several week as a Covid-19 precaution, and reopened in May with stringent sanitation and distanced seating in place. We look forward to the point in 2021 when vaccines become available and we can remove our masks! We all need hugs!
We recognize that some of our older members have health concerns that have kept them away from church, but we have endeavored to stay in touch with them through YouTube sermons by our new pastor Rev. Bill Dunlap, our Facebook Group (New Church Family of Daytona Beach) and our Word Up newsletter, plus telephone calls, visits to hospitals and nursing homes, home visits when possible, note and cards, and portable Communion.
Our brief shutdown in the spring did reduce our tithes while building maintenance expenses continued. Cutting expenses wherever possible, we have avoided deficit spending for the past 10 months. If you have been helped and encouraged our ministry from afar, we ask you to consider sending us a year-end gift so we can finish the year in the black. Our mailing address is New Church Family, 3520 W. International Speedway Blvd. Daytona Beach Fl. 32124. You can also make donations through Pay Pal. If you have questions, leave a message for Treasurer Judi Omelia at 386-527-5952.
