Hard Times
The Lord’s church has endured many hard times over the history since the
Lord Jesus established His church. The hard times began at the beginning of the
church and continue to plague the faithful. As early as Acts chapter 3, we see the
church pressed on every side with trials and tribulation.

 Peter heals a lame man in Acts chapter 3 and both Peter and John wind up in prison in Acts chapter 4! More persecution continues in chapter 4 and escalates in great proportion by Acts chapter 7 with the death of Stephen. Because of the great persecution of Saul of Tarsus, the church is scattered throughout the land. Still, the faithful meet on the first day of the week to partake of the Lord’s Supper, sing, give of their means, pray and hear God’s word preached. Later, when Saul has been converted, he works even harder to teach people the way of God than when he persecuted the church. He endured many trials and tribulations during his walk as a Christian! Many of his trials are listed in 2 Cor 10:23-28 and yet Paul endures all in order to finish the race 2 Tim 4:6- 8.

The church today is going through many trials. We have been ordered not
to meet for fear of the Covid-19 virus, yet we still have the obligation and desire to meet for the same reasons they did in the first century. 

The elders of the Tom Bean congregation have chosen to follow the teaching of the writer of Hebrews, “Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.” (Heb 10.25). 

We will hold our scheduled services on Sunday morning and evening and have Bible class on Wednesday night. If you begin to show signs of sickness, please stay home and let us know what is going on so we can assist you as we can. Also, we are encouraging everyone to practice “social distancing” as much as possible.

Robert Embry has made sure the speaker in the south classroom is working and if you would like to sit in that classroom feel free to do so. Also, the speaker is
working in the nursery. Those that sit in the auditorium are asked to not sit too
close together with the exception of family members that you are in constant
contact with.

If you need our assistance in any way, please let one of the elders

In Christian Love,
