Update 6: COVID-19/Coronavirus

Dear Liberty Baptist Tabernacle Family,

I am excited to announce we will be returning to our two Sunday morning services format this coming Sunday, with services at 8:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. (still no Sunday school hour yet). At this time, nothing else will change; though we are hoping to get our other ministries up and going again as soon as it is prudent to do so. Please continue to be prayer!

The reason this is so exciting for me is because it is a reflection of your determination to be faithfully assembled when able. I have not had to twist anybody’s… read more

Dear Liberty Baptist Tabernacle Family,

Pennington County is now in the “substantial” classification level for COVID-19/Coronavirus community spread according to the South Dakota Department of Health website (https://doh.sd.gov/news/Coronavirus.aspx#map). Once a community reaches this classification level the CDC recommendation is to “cancel community and faith-based gatherings of any size”. Therefore, I’m promoting live stream only services. I am asking you to take the CDC recommendation seriously.

With that being said, I will not forbid any from “the assembling of ourselves together” – no one will be turned away. This is not with a defiant spirit, but this is a position I… read more

Dear Liberty Baptist Tabernacle Family,

As of this writing, Pennington County is now in the “minimal to moderate” classification level for COVID-19/Coronavirus “community spread”. In addition to this, our Rapid City Council passed ordinance #6412 tonight. This essentially requires the closure of all nonessential "on-site and on-sale patron" businesses and places of recreation through April 8th. The ordinance will remain in effect for 60 days, but there will be periodic reassessments made along the way to determine the need for continued enforcement. The ordinance will be automatically repealed at the end of 60 days unless the need to readopt is necessary.… read more

Update 3: COVID-19/Coronavirus

Dear Liberty Baptist Tabernacle Family,

As of this writing, “community spread” has arrived in four counties in South Dakota, and that number is expected to grow larger in the coming weeks and possibly months. In response to this, Governor Noem has signed an executive order which gives her expected baseline for how best to respond to the spread of COVID-19. Essentially, it is to follow the CDC recommendations for a pandemic, which we have been doing, and it ultimately means local authorities will have to decide which actions are best to take.

Before Governor Noem signed the executive order, our Rapid City… read more

Dear Liberty Baptist Tabernacle Family,

Because some are having a difficult time understanding what is authorized and what is not, I feel it is prudent to post the following in an attempt to clear up any confusion…

The South Dakota Department of Health issued a COVID-19 Briefing for Municipalities and Counties on March 18, 2020, which contains guidelines for “community and faith-based organizations”. You can view the briefing from the following link:

https://doh.sd.gov/documents/news/COVID_Briefing_Municipalities_&_Counties_03-18-2020.pdf

First, one must understand the term “community spread”. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the term community spread means the spread of an illness… read more

Dear Liberty Baptist Tabernacle Family,

President Trump held a press conference on Monday where he gave his “Coronavirus Guidelines for America”. Within these guidelines it was recommended to avoid social gatherings of ten or more people to help slow the spread of the coronavirus over the next 15 days. I would like to emphasize that these are guidelines and not directives, and the very first thing mentioned in the President’s guidelines was to “listen to and follow the directions of your state and local authorities”.

As of the time of this writing I had not seen or heard any official word from… read more

Dear Liberty Baptist Tabernacle Family,

As I am sure all are aware by now, COVID-19 (known commonly as the Coronavirus) has arrived in South Dakota. Sadly, one in our county who had become infected with the virus has passed. It is still unknown if this was the cause of death, as he had other preexisting health conditions (as reported by the Rapid City Journal).

Governor Noem has issued a state of emergency for the state of South Dakota and is asking all schools to close statewide next week, and all tournaments have been postponed. Therefore, Liberty Baptist Academy will not hold classes… read more

Peace on Earth

After Christ’s birth we read in Luke 2:8-14 -

“And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And… read more

When the Pastor’s message is desired

It’s interesting when people are the hungriest to hear from their Pastor… The preacher can encourage the congregation to be faithful to read their Bibles – “Oh, but preacher you don’t understand, I don’t really like to read”, but you’ve got no problem reading text messages throughout the day… Be faithful to pray – “Oh, but preacher you don’t understand, I don’t really have time to spend in prayer every day”, but you’ll have time to talk to other people throughout the day… Be faithful to church when the doors are open – “Oh, but preacher you don’t understand, I… read more
