Interim Guidance for Communities of Faith

CDC offers the following general considerations to help communities of faith discern how best to practice their beliefs while keeping their staff and congregations safe.  Millions of Americans embrace worship as an essential part of life.  For many faith traditions, gathering together for worship is at the heart of what it means to be a community of faith. But as Americans are now aware, gatherings present a risk for increasing the spread of COVID-19 during this public health emergency. CDC offers these suggestions for faith communities to consider, consistent with their own faith traditions, in the course of preparing to reconvene for in-person gatherings while still working to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Implementation should be guided by what is feasible, practical, and acceptable, and tailored to the needs and traditions of each community of faith.  The information offered is non-binding public health guidance for consideration only; it is not meant to regulate or prescribe standards for interactions of faith communities in houses of worship. Any decision to modify specific religious rites, rituals, and services should be made by religious leaders.  Specific preventive actions are provided as examples only.

Scaling Up Operations

  • Establish and maintain communication with local and State authorities to determine current mitigation levels in your community.
  • Provide protections for staff and congregants at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19. Offer options for staff at higher risk for severe illness (including older adults and people of all ages with certain underlying medical conditions) that limit their exposure risk. Offer options for congregants at higher risk of severe illness that limit their exposure risk (e.g., remote participation in services).
  • Consistent with applicable federal and state laws and regulations, put in place policies that protect the privacy and confidentiality of people at higher risk for severe illness regarding underlying medical conditions.
  • Continue to provide congregants with spiritual and emotional care and counseling on a flexible or virtual basis or refer them to other sourcesfor counseling and support if necessary.
  • Encourage any organizations that share or use the facilities to also follow these considerations if feasible.
  • If your community provides social services in the facility as part of its mission, consult CDC’s information for schools and businesses and workplaces, as relevant, for helpful information.

Promote healthy hygiene practices

  • Encourage staff and congregants to maintain good hand hygiene, washing hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Have adequate supplies to support healthy hygiene behaviors, including soap, hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol (for those who can safely use hand sanitizer), tissues, and no-touch trash cans.
  • Encourage staff and congregants to cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or use the inside of their elbow. Used tissues should be thrown in the trash and hands washed.
  • Whenever soap and water are not readily available, hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol can be used.
  • Consider posting signs on how to stop the spreadpdf icon of COVID-19 and promote everyday protective measurespdf icon, such as washing hands, covering coughs and sneezes, and properly wearing a face coveringimage icon.

Cloth face coverings

  • Encourage use of cloth face coverings among staff and congregants. Face coverings are most essential when social distancing is difficult. Note: Cloth face coverings should not be placed on children younger than 2 years old, anyone who has trouble breathing or is unconscious, and anyone who is incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the cloth face covering without assistance. Cloth face coverings are meant to protect other people in case the wearer is unknowingly infected but does not have symptoms.

In the Holy Bible we find these words; In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth, (Genesis 1:1) records these words to remind us that everything has a beginning.

CELEBRATING 105 Years

Some 105 years ago Shiloh Baptist Church recorded her beginning. We honor those who have written the pages of Shiloh’s history and also who are helping to shape its future. For years we have stood through the storms and the rain, held on through trials and tribulations, being confident of this very thing, that He which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.

Paul’s Call for the Corinthian Church to Unify

Rev. Anthony G Harris, M. Div.

Pastor & Instructor

1 Corinthians 1:2-17

  1. Paul’s Appeal (1 Corinth 1:2-3)
  • Paul identifies he is addressing by using the Greek word ekklesia which simply referrers to a meeting of people or assembly. Literally means, called out ones.
  • He also uses the word sanctified. This is a reference to being set apart for a holy purpose in kingdom service.
  • 1 Peter 2:9-11
  1. Paul’s is Selfless in his Gratitude (1 Corinth 1:4-9)
  • Paul’s letters consisted in the New Testament beginning with words of encouragement closely resembling thankfulness unto God.
  • How often do we thank God for other believers? Do we thank him for believers who are imperfect, immature, have offended us and struggling? 
  • Romans 1:8-12.
  • Spiritual Gifts: The possession of the gifts granted unto us was not given to us for personal pride. God has granted us gifts to benefit the body of Christ (through developing inner growth within the body of believers.  Gifts are also for the development of the outer man, i.e. miracles, and applying one’s faith.  Additionally, gifts were giving to the church for the purpose of, prepare people for the coming of Christ.
  1. Paul’s Plea for Agreement (1 Corinth. 1:10-12)
  • In Paul’s letter to the Corinthians, his desire is to have Corinth to have a common language, which is founded in a Trinitarian example of the God head. In other words, Paul’s desire was for the body of Christ (the Church) to have all things in common as the trinity exemplified.  Paul wanted Christians to speak that which was for the common good of all (Rom. 15:5-7).  The goal was to have the body perfectly joined together in body, mind, and soul (Phil. 2:2).
  1. Paul’s Convincing Argument (1 Corinthians 1:13-17)
  • In Paul’s conclusion of the matter, his question of “Is Christ divided’ helps us see the importance of possessing a mind that unifies the church, and re-enforcing that belief in practice daily (Eph. 4:3-6). Paul conclude with taking ay attention off himself, and clarifying his call and purpose on earth, and ministry.  Paul’s made it clear to the church that unity also is achieved when we are satisfied with being the servant, and God being God, and receiving the Glory.
