ABCCONN COVID-19 Update
ABCCONN Covid-19 Update
This is an update to keep you apprised of what is happening in ABCCONN. After meeting with the Executive Committee on Sunday, March 15, 2020, it was decided that all office work should be done remotely. Therefore, all meetings and appointments will be done virtually via Zoom, phone, and email.
It was also decided to postpone the Annual Gathering to be held in April. We are looking at a date to be determined in the Fall of 2020. Please stay tuned for more details. I know that choosing to close or go to a virtual platform is a difficult decision. However, a webcast is the best decision for both you and your congregants. ABCCONN seeks to be a relevant and added value partner in these times. Therefore, please join me this Thursday at 1:00PM via Zoom. We will share, pray, and seek to encourage each other in the Lord. This gathering is for lay and clergy. Please join me.
Rev. Harry Riggs
Executive Minister of ABCCONN
