Dear Brothers and Sisters, I want to express my deep appreciation to you during this very challenging time. As a result of COVID-19, we are experiencing issues, we would never have anticipated only a few short weeks ago.

As a means to keep you up to date on what is happening throughout our Conference, Nationally and Globally, we have created this page that will provide credible and timely information. Among some key features of this page are:

Online Screening Tool: Developed by Apple, in conjunction with the CDC, this tool will provide you with information regarding your status and what you should do regarding COVID-19.

Financial Assistance Information: This section provides a list of financial assistance available to those who’ve found themselves unemployed at this time or as a result of COVID-19.

Safety Videos & Important Update: A group of videos and other media that will help you keep safe and understand the status on the Conference and Local Churches.

Keep Up To Date: A group of credible sources that will help you keep up to date on the effects of COVID-19 Nationally and Globally.

We encourage you to visit this page daily for further updates and we encourage you to adhere to the information provided. We have also provided an Online Giving page for you to return your tithes and offerings if you have online banking and a link to digital Sabbath School Quarterlies for you to keep current with your studies.

In consultation with the Atlantic Caribbean Union Officers, we would like to state that all churches in our Conference must remain close until further notice. We are asking all pastors to have church via the Internet or online and to stay in contact with members using the various technological platforms.

“The Lord have not given a spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” With Christ as our guide, we will be triumphant over this present challenge and the name of God will be glorified.
