What to Expect 

As a nation, we have been thrust into a season of great uncertainty and concern. For most of us, our lives are experiencing significant disturbances and the struggle to maintain balance and order is increasingly challenging. This new reality has also impacted how we experience our community as a church. In an effort to mitigate the effects of the virus and blunt its spread we have postponed all in-person worship services, which include but are not limited to Sabbath and Wednesday evening services, until March 29, 2020. 

However, while the building remains closed, as a church community we will continue our warm and powerful worship experiences online. As of Sabbath March 21, 2020, you may find us online at northbronxsda.org for worship services.
 
We are asking you to remember that the situation at hand remains fluid and is ever-changing and as a community, we may make changes in response to those situations. However, lets us not allow our connection to be limited by our distancing. Let’s harness the power of every available resource to stay together as a community at this time

“Our desire is to connect people with the living and powerful God.”

 
We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, of one Being with the Father.

“COVID 19: BRIEFING 13”
 
Communion July 11:
The North Bronx SDA Church will be hosting its first virtual communion service on July 11, 2020. It will be an exciting interactive experience where members at home will be able to partake of the emblems of our Lord’s death and celebrate His resurrecting power. The family will be able to follow, at home, the live church service and we will all partake of the emblems together. This will be a spiritual experience that you will not want to miss.
Please stay tuned for more details.
 
Church Opening, July 18:
It has been months since we have been able to worship God together in our church. As the number of COVID-19
cases decline, the state is loosening some restrictions for gatherings. Right now, we are anticipating that we will be
able to reopen at 25% capacity (160 persons) on July18. We are excited about the possibility to see you again and are making every effort to prepare for this date. However, we do realize that we shall have to adjust to a new normal
and so here are a few things to keep in mind.
  • The church will be deep cleaned before and after each service
  • Temperature checks will be taken at the door
  • Social distancing and face coverings will be required at all times
  • We are asking those who may be in a high-risk category due to age, or health condition to enjoy the service at home until the city allows for full capacity with fewer restrictions.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
