In view of the recent Covid-19 Restricted Movement Order by the Prime Minister to impose a 14-day partial lockdown from March 18 to 31 nationwide to curb the spread of the virus, Kuala Lumpur Baptist Church (KLBC) will join hands together with the government to battle this unprecedented threat to our nation.
In compliance with the Order, KLBC will suspend coming together as a church for our worship services on Sundays. Church activities will temporarily stop and kindergarten/schools will also be closed.
However, please note that the following will be implemented:
- There will be live streaming of the Sunday worship services for both the English and Chinese congregations on March 22 and 29. The English worship service will be at 10:00 a.m. and the Chinese worship service will be at 11:30 a.m. You can follow us at https://www.facebook.com/klbcMY
- All Connect groups will continue to stay connected in a small group or through Whatsapp or video conferencing on the same day and at the same time of their regular weekly meeting.
- Morning Watch will be held as usual on Fridays from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 a.m. Instead of coming to the church, please join us from your home and pray on your own or with your family members. Prayer needs/items will be sent to all members one day earlier so that we may all continue to pray for the church and our nation.
- The church office will remain open daily from Mondays to Fridays at 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. to handle any emergency that may arise during this period. We can be contacted at 03-21419154.
This Covid-19 virus will be around for some time. It is spreading like wild fire not just in our country but all over the world. Our Christian faith and attitude should make a difference in how we respond and deal with it. Let us stop creating fear and panic through inadvertently posting fake news on social media. Instead, let us encourage one another to trust the Lord, allow His love and peace to fill our hearts as we seek His mercy during this challenging time.
Let us put our faith in Him and not live in fear. God is still in control. If we live in fear, we will probably die from anxiety attacks more than from virus attacks! We shall take all necessary precaution but always remember that nothing will happen to us without the permissible will of God.
So, more urgently, let us pray for the government, doctors, nurses and all those on the frontlines providing medical care for the many who have tested positive for the virus and for a vaccine to be discovered as soon as possible.
God’s peace and protection be with you all.
