Amidst concerns surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19), we want to let you know how NEHBC is responding.
Our leadership team is actively monitoring this situation. As information develops, this page will serve as the primary, most up-to-date place for you to receive answers to commonly asked questions. We are committed to doing everything we can to provide a safe environment for our church family and surrounding community.
No. Due to the recent executive order to not gather in groups of 10 or more, we will cease gathering together for worship services in person until further notice. We will stream Sunday and Wednesday evening services at 11:30 am on Sunday and 7:00 pm Wednesday.
Yes. We intend to stream our worship services for the foreseaable future. The links to these streams are available at the top of this page. Join us as we watch our services online together at 11:30 am Sunday and 7:00 pm Wednesday.
We intend for Farrington Mission to stay open in order to serve others in this unprecedented time. While we are that there is shelter order for the city of Houston, we will be serving as part of the Houston Food Bank's disaster relief efforts and have been assured that we are exempt from that order. We will use this opportunity to reach the lost by providing physical needs as a means to get to the gospel.
Please know that we will be operating with great care to ensure the safety of our volunteers and guests by eliminating all personal contact with each other. Food and materials will be placed in guests’ cars directly with no physical contact, and we will take protective measures for reducing the risk while interacting with the guests.
Watch Pastor Nathan's update regarding safety protocols at Farringtom Mission below.
Special prayer opportunity:
Finally, we recognize that there are special considerations for those at higher risk for coronavirus. If you are high risk, the best way you can help is to form a prayer chain from your home to lift us up while we are actively distributing. Please sign up for a prayer slot on this signup sheet.
You can give online by clicking HERE. Additionally, you can give by mail. Your tithes and offerings are essentially in this time so that the ministries of NEHBC can continue as we share the hope of Jesus Christ with a world that needs it desperately! For a list of all the ways you can give, including our new drive up drop off location, visit www.nehbc.com/giving.
No. At this time, the NEHBC building is closed and all events between now and Easter have been cancelled. Many of the events will be offered in an online format and you should receive more information from ministry leaders as it is available.
At NEHBC we love gathering together to worship the Lord. We place a high priority on gathering together and we always want you to feel welcome here. If you are feeling sick or running a fever, the best way that you can love your neighbor is by staying home until you feel better! The Sunday morning worship time is the main gathering of believers which includes NEHBC's elderly and those who are immunocompromised. Please help us care for those who are at greater risk of infection by staying home if you are not feeling well, joining our live stream, and returning once you have been fever free for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medicine.
In an effort to best serve members and guests, NEHBC has implemented the following policies and procedures:

The coronavirus (COVID-19) is yet one more reminder that we live in a fallen world of sickness, sin, suffering, and death. Ultimately, none of us are immune to any of these things. But that’s why the gospel is such good news. God has not left us alone in this world! He has come to us in the person of Jesus. The greatest news in all the world is that Jesus lived a life with no sin, died on a cross to pay the price for our sin, and rose from the grave in victory over sin and death. Now anyone anywhere who turns from their sin and trusts in Jesus will be forgiven of all their sin and restored to relationship with God forever. That means that through Jesus, we never have to fear sickness or death because we know we have eternal life with God.
If you do not know that you have eternal life with God, we urge you to put your faith in Jesus. And if you do know that you have eternal life with God, we urge you to share your faith in Jesus with others. Times like these remind us all of the fragility of life and the inevitability of death. So let’s tell others that death has been defeated and eternal life is available to all who trust in Jesus!
In addition to trusting in Jesus and sharing your faith with others, here’s some other ways you can respond to the coronavirus (COVID-19):
Our team is continually evaluating various sources of information including advice from our ministry partners in other countries, the State Department, and organizations like the Center for Disease Control and the World Health Organization. We recently made several decisions related to 2020 mission trips. For the most detailed, up-to-date information on 2020 mission trips in light of the coronavirus (COVID-19), please click HERE.
