Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update Page

May 8: Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update:

After much prayer and preparation we have decided our official on-campus open date will now be May 24th. We will be holding live services at 8:30am, 10:00am, and 11:30am in our Worship Center as well as live streaming to the Impakt Auditorium and Chapel. At this time there will be no childcare and we encourage families to worship together. 

We are working hard to create a safe environment to gather together. Social distancing will be implemented, as well as sanitizing between services and limiting the capacity in our buildings to allow for adequate spacing. To help us with this, please be sure to reserve your seat online. This will help us greatly as we make sure there are enough seats for anyone who comes. You can reserve your seats HERE.

We want you to make the best decision for your family and situation. We will continue to live stream our services on YouTube as well as Facebook and hope you will join us online if you cannot join us at our physical location. We are looking forward to worshipping with you again!

May 2: Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update:

We announced earlier this week that we are planning to hold church services on site beginning May 17, 2020. As of right now, this is still the plan. However, we feel it is wise to take another week to pray about this decision and make sure it is the right time for us to open our doors. We can’t wait to worship together again! Until then we will continue to live stream our services and will let you know next Sunday (May 10) the decision we have come to.

April 29: Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update:

Here’s a quick update from Pastor Kirt about our plans to reopen PaulAnn Church on May 17th!

We will be offering multiple services at multiple times. To keep with state guidelines, we will need everyone planning on attending to signup online and reserve your spot. Tickets will be made available online after church services on May 3rd.

Can’t wait to worship corporately with you again!

March 18th: Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update:

PaulAnn Family,
 
Due to continuing concerns over the Coronavirus as well as the city wide ban of gatherings over 50 people, we will not hold any services on campus this coming week, March 22nd. We are continuing to monitor the situation week by week and plan to resume meeting on campus as soon as we are able too. Until then we are so thankful for our ability to live stream! We will continue to provide live on-line services at 10am and 11:30am via YouTube and Facebook.
 
We firmly believe that God intends for His people to meet together. We realize that meeting on-line via live stream is not ideal. Even so, we are thankful for technology that connects us during this strange time.  We want to encourage you to ask the Lord to give you eyes to see where He is at work around you. We may not be meeting together in a physical church, but that does not stop us from being the church! One simple way to help is by spreading the word about our live stream. Think of the impact it could have on our community to have God’s Word streamed into living rooms all over San Angelo and the surrounding areas. Let’s be a church that focuses outward instead of inward during this time.

March 14th: Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update:

PaulAnn Church Family,

In light of increased concerns surrounding the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) we want to keep you informed on how the leadership at PaulAnn is responding. 

We are closely monitoring the situation. As things continue to progress, this page will serve as the primary, most up-to-date place for you to get information on our response as well as answer most commonly asked questions.

As Christians we are called by Jesus to care for and protect the most vulnerable among us. Out of love for one another, our neighbors, and our community, we feel it is wise to temporarily adjust the plans for Sunday morning worship as well as all mid-week ministries.

Is PaulAnn meeting for regular worship services on Sunday, March 15?

  • No. We will NOT gather for worship on campus this coming Sunday, March 15. We believe that God’s people gathering together for worship and the preaching of the Word are an important part of our faith. While we are not gathering for congregational worship on campus, we will continue to provide our service via Live Stream at 10am on Sunday morning. We encourage you to set aside time either individually, with family or if possible with friends, to worship and hear from God’s Word.  While gathering this way will be different in many ways, we are thankful to have the technology in place to continue worshipping and growing together, even remotely! You will be able to join us for an online worship experience this Sunday morning at 10am by clicking the button below (or by following HERE).

How will this affect future services?

  • We want to do our part in helping protect those in our city who are most vulnerable and at greater risk due to the coronavirus (COVID-19). We will continue to evaluate the possibility of resuming regular on-campus services and mid-week activities. Once decisions are finalized, we will share that information with you through our website, email, and social media. 

What about Community Life Groups and other mid-week activities?

  • We will not have any on-campus or off-campus ministries meeting this week. This means all CLG’s, men’s and women’s Bible studies, as well as children and youth activities will not meet. We will keep you posted on a time-line for resuming activities as decisions are made.

How can I continue to give financially to PaulAnn Church while we are not gathering for services?

  • Thank you for your faithful support of PaulAnn, especially in difficult times like these. You can give financially through the PushPay app or by mail. To give online click the button below. If you prefer to give by mail you can mail to:

PaulAnn Baptist Church
2531 Smith Blvd.
San Angelo, TX 76905

What if I have a need? Who can I reach out to?

  • It is our utmost priority to care for our church family and community well during such an uncertain time. If you need prayer or are in need, please call the church office at 325-655-7552 or email care@paulann.org.

How should I respond to the coronavirus (COVID-19) as a Christian?

  • As believers in Jesus we do not need to respond in fear. We know the One who is ruling over all of heaven and earth. He is not surprised or caught off guard. Let’s take this moment to love our neighbors, to care for the least of these, just as Jesus did, and to share the hope that we have because of Christ. The world is watching. Let’s respond by bearing one another’s burdens, loving each other,  and choosing faith over fear. Above all, we should pray. We believe prayer is powerful! Pray for physical healing as well as spiritual healing. Pray for our communities and those directly affected by COVID-19. Pray for health care workers that are treating the sick. Pray that God will use these uncertain times to bring a lost, fearful world to the saving knowledge of Christ Jesus.
