Dear TBF Friends & Clients,
The Tennessee Baptist Mission Board (TBMB) Church Support Center (CSC) in Franklin, Tennessee is open with normal business hours, which includes the Tennessee Baptist Foundation.
The TBMB has extended its COVID protocols outlined in July to be extended to December 31, 2020. Our staff will be doing part of our work remotely but will have someone in the office each day. This also means there will be no large gatherings in the church Support Center and staff will be able to travel but on a limited basis. We are able to have up to three guests at one time in the Foundation office during this protocol. We will keep you updated in the coming months.
The Foundation staff will be doing some limited travel to meet with church groups and individuals, when requested, through the summer months. Some churches and individuals are not quite ready to meet in person and we understand that. We have found Zoom to be a great tool in communicating and we are even able to conduct seminars for your church via Zoom. The Foundation staff are prepared to connect with you virtually using Zoom or other videoconferencing technology, or by phone. You can make a virtual appointment or request an in-person meeting with one of our staff members by calling 615.371.2029 or by sending us a message on our contact page.
Please continue to pray with us as we trust God to save lives and alleviate suffering caused by COVID-19. I encourage you to hold close these words from Jesus found in John 10:27:
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.“
Serving Christ with you,
Rev. Bill Gruenewald, President-Treasurer
