UPDATED: All actvities are still cancelled.
Please scroll to the bottom for "NEW" updates concerning the re-opening of Morning Star for public worship. I will be updating the information there as time progresses. Please continue to pray for one another and for your Pastor. God is still on the throne and still blessing all His children.
Though things have improved somewhat, we are still waiting for a steady decline in numbers. As long as things continue to go up and down we must wait. Until then please join with me in praying to God and asking Him to take this plague away. Scripture has the answer for us all and it's found in 2 Chronicles 7:14. Read it and do what it says and you will join in with believers everywhere.
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14 (KJV)
To be a loving and encouraging church that aids to build an individuals relationship with God and with the body of believers.
Here at Morning Star all are welcome. No matter where you are in life, there will be a word delivered to inspire and uplift you in knowing Jesus Christ.

Preparations for Re-opening
Jan - Mar 2021
We are beginning this week to discuss the re-opening of the church. I ask your prayers for myself, the Deacons, and our leadership team comprised of all heads of auxiliaries as we discuss steps to take in re-opening safely and respecting the laws currently in place regarding any re-opening.
Again, "IF" all goes well, we hope to re-open sometime in the latter part of the 2nd quarter of 2021. We are praying for the success of the vaccinations and that people everywhere will listen and practice the current safety measures. We praise God that the number of confirmed cases continues to fall, but we should not drop our guard! God is still calling people everywhere to repent and to return to Himself. I continue to encourage all members of Morning Star Missionary Baptist Church to pray for our country and for the people of this world. I also encourage you to be an encourager to others. God always has a remnant left from which He will rebuild. Let us pray to be a part of His remnant to REINVIGORATE believers with His Word!
When we re-open, there will be one way into and out of the church. All will enter through the vestibule and we encourage use of the touch-less hand sanitizing stations that will be set up for everyone to use. You will still need to wear a mask and social distancing should begin the moment you reach the church grounds. We will ask that you come early as you will be asked to stand 6 feet apart (by family) as you enter the vestibule. PLEASE WAIT for an usher to seat you as the seating arrangements will be different due to us implementing social distancing inside the church. We ask your patience in all this because your safety is also our concern.
We will also be implementing our own form of contact tracing. This means we will be keeping a record of who sat where in the church just in case someone unfortunately tests positive. We would contact the member(s) who were seated near that individual informing them of the need to self-quarantine for 2 weeks. We feel this will help to prevent an outbreak within the church body.
For now, ALL Morning Star events are still cancelled (Special days, special events, etc.) until further notice.
