Mobberly is monitoring the situation and will provide you with pertinent information as it relates to our church and community on this page. (Last updated March 30, 2020, 8:00 p.m. CST)
God is at work at Mobberly, and lives are being changed by the gospel each week. Students and children are coming to faith in Christ, growing in Him, and professing those decisions through baptism. Our giving is healthy and God is providing in ways as only He can do. Indeed, God is doing something here at Mobberly!

 

Even as we rejoice in the many ways God is moving, we are aware that much is happening in the world around us. Recently, COVID-19 (coronavirus) has captured our attention. First, please join us in prayer for the communities and nations throughout the world being impacted. We are earnestly asking God to heal the sick, protect any at risk of contracting the virus and to pour out His strength and wisdom on medical professionals who tirelessly care for those who are sick.

General Information about COVID-19

There are many sources of information available about the Corona Virus. The CDC has quite a bit of information available on their website, ranging from how to prevent illness, recognizing symptoms, situation updates and more.

 

Here are ways you can help the potential spread of illness during this time:
* If you feel sick, contact your health care provider.
* When attending large group functions, greet people with a wave or other appropriate greetings rather than a handshake.
* Avoid unnecessary contact with anyone, particularly someone who might appear to be ill.
* Use recommended etiquette when you sneeze or cough.
* Wash your hands frequently for 20 seconds with soap.
* Do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth with your hands.
* After contact with surfaces that are regularly touched by others, wash your hands or use hand sanitizer as soon as possible.

* The CDC has outlined several groups who may be at higher risk with COVID-19, including older adults and people with underlying chronic medical conditions.
