Update: Updated Guidelines for the Re-Opening of Eben-Ezer Haitian Baptist Church of Westbury

The doors of Eben-Ezer Haitian Baptist Church of Westbury were re-open since August 2020 for in person worship services.  The health of our church members is our highest priority.  We are committed to provide a safe environment for them.  In the sanctuary, the guidelines below are followed:

1.  Worship Services

On August 2, 2020, we returned in the sanctuary for worship services.  We conducted at that time one morning service at 11:00 AM until October 11, 2020.  Beginning October 18, 2020, we are conducting two worship services on Sundays, one from 9:00 am – 10:15 am and the other from 11:00 am – 12:30 pm.  Only the second service is online.  We are considering two key elements:  1) We are gathering in a manner that is consistent with the CDC social distancing guidelines; 2) We recognize that a great party of our church is not returning at this time.  As we gather, we make an effort to minimize the opportunity for exposure of Covid-19.  We have a team in place with a specific plan designed to increase your safety if you choose to attend.  Worship service is not the same as it was before the pandemic.  For members who are considered high risk and for those who do not feel comfortable to return at this time, we continue to provide online opportunity to worship with us on Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Twitter.  Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Saturday prayer services are in the sanctuary and on the Webex line.

2.  Sunday School 

A change of time is planned for the Sunday School.  The Sunday School will again be on Webex line at a time to be announced. 

3.  Meetings

Church Committee and Council have returned for meeting in the church on 2nd and 4th Sunday of each month, and other Sunday, if needed.  Social distancing guidelines are being followed.

4.  Ministries

Some Church groups gatherings or meetings are returning to normal schedule in the church.  The meetings are functioning in keeping social distancing guidelines.

We have come from a long way, since March 2020, to meet face-to-face with you all again. May the Lord continue to guide us during this pandemic time!

Mizajou: Gid Mizajou pou reouvèti Eglise Baptiste Haitienne Eben-Ezer de Westbury

Pòt Eben-Ezer Legliz Batis Ayisyen nan Westbury te re-louvri depi Out 2020 pou sèvis adore moun. Sante manm legliz nou yo se pi gwo priyorite nou. Nou angaje nan bay yon anviwònman ki an sekirite pou yo. Nan Tanp lan, yo swiv direktiv ki anba yo:

1. Sèvis Adorasyon

2 Out 2020, nou te retounen nan Tanp lan pou sèvis adorasyon yo. Nou te fè sèvis sa a yon maten nan 11:00 AM jouk 11 Oktòb 2020. Apati 18 Oktòb 2020, n ap fè de sèvis adorasyon nan Dimanch, youn nan 9:00 am – 10:15 am ak lòt la nan 11 : 00 am – 12:30 pm. Se sèlman dezyèm sèvis la ki sou entènèt. Nou ap konsidere de eleman kle: 1) Nou ap rasanble nan yon fason ki konsistan avèk gid CDC distans sosyal yo; 2) Nou rekonèt ke yon gwo pati nan legliz nou an pa retounen nan moman sa a. Kòm nou ranmase, nou fè yon efò pou misyon pou minimize opòtinite pou ekspoze nan Covid-19. Nou gen yon ekip an plas ak yon plan espesifik ki fèt pou ogmante sekirite ou si ou chwazi ale nan. Sèvis adorasyon se pa menm bagay la kòm li te ye anvan pandemi an. Pou manm ki konsidere kòm gwo risk ak pou moun ki pa santi yo alèz pou yo retounen nan moman sa a, nou kontinye bay opòtinite sou entènèt pou adore avèk nou sou Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Twitter. Lendi, Madi, Mèkredi, ak Samdi sèvis lapriyè yo nan Tanp lan ak sou liy lan Webex.

2. Lekòl Dimanch

Yon chanjman nan tan te planifye pou lekòl la Dimanch. Lekòl Dimanch lan pral ankò sou liy Webex nan yon moman yo dwe anonse.

3. Reyinyon yo

Komite Legliz la ak Konsèy yo te retounen pou reyinyon nan legliz la nan 2yèm ak 4yèm Dimanch nan chak mwa, ak lòt Dimanch, si sa nesesè. Gid distansye sosyal yo te swiv.

4. Ministè

Gen kèk reyinyon oswa reyinyon gwoup Legliz la ki retounen nan orè nòmal nan legliz la. Reyinyon yo ap fonksyone nan kenbe direktiv distans sosyal yo.

Nou te soti nan yon fason lontan, depi Mas 2020, al kontre fas-a-fas ak ou tout ankò. Se pou Seyè a kontinye gide nou pandan tan pandemi sa a!

Mizajou: Mesaj konsènan COVID-19, Coronavirus Kòm yon legliz lokal, nou ap priye pou nasyon an ak moun ki afekte nan coronavirus a  (COVID-19), epi nou kontinye kenbe  konfyans nan Bondye.

Sante kominote nou an se pi gwo priyorite nou e nou pran angajman pou bay yon anviwònman san danje pou tout manm nou yo; Se poutèt sa, kòmanse Dimanch, 22 Mas, nou pral gen adorasyon sou entènèt sèlman, epi nou ap sispann adore an pèson nan mwa Mas. Sa ka pwolonje pou plis dimanch kòm nou gen plis enfòmasyon. Tout lòt aktivite nan Legliz Batis ayisyen Eben-Ezer nan Westbury pral sispann omwen nan mwa Mas eksepte pou priyè nou pandan lasemèn.

Nou pral fè l ‘nan sa nou ap fè fas a kòm yon sosyete ak sonje ke Bondye toujou nan kontwòl.Sòm 91 v 5-7Ou pa bezwen pè bagay k’ap fè moun pè lannwit, ni kè ou pa bezwen kase pou malè ki ka rive ou lajounen.
Ou pa bezwen pè move maladi k’ap tonbe sou moun nan mitan lannwit, ni epidemi k’ap touye moun gwo midi.
Mil (1.000) moun te mèt tonbe sou bò gòch ou, dimil (10.000) sou bò dwat ou, anyen p’ap rive ou

Legliz la te mete kèk prekosyon nan plas, ogmante pratik sanitasyon ak mande adoratè evite kontak fizik youn ak lòt. Nou pral kontinye kontwole sitiyasyon an COVID-19, epi yo pral kenbe ou enfòme.

Men kèk nan mezi debaz yo ki nan lis sou sit entènèt CDC a:

  • Evite kontak sere avèk moun ki malad.
  • Evite manyen zye ou, nen ou ak bouch ou.
  • Rete lakay ou lè ou malad.
  • Kouvri tous ou oswa etènye ak yon tisi, epi jete tisi a nan fatra a.
  • Netwaye epi dezenfekte souvan objè ak sifas ki manyen yo, sèvi avèk yon netwayaj regilye nan kay la oswa siye.
  • Lave men ou souvan avèk savon ak dlo pandan omwen 20 segonn, espesyalman apre w fin ale nan twalèt la; anvan yo manje; epi apre ou fin mouche nen ou, ou touse, oswa etènye.
  • Si dlo ak savon pa disponib fasilman, itilize yon dezenfektan ki baze sou alkòl avèk alkòl 60% omwen. Toujou lave men ou avèk savon ak dlo si men ou wè sal.

Sonje lapriyè epi mete Bondye an premye nan tout sa nou fè.

God gave us a spirit not of fear, but of power and love and self-control (2 Timothy 1:7)

As we continue to receive communications and information regarding the COVID-19 It is extremely important that we are safe. we are called as people of faith to protect one another, particularly the most vulnerable among us. In the midst of health battles, confusion and fear, we as a church family want to prayerfully respond. The church has put some precautions in place, increasing sanitation practices and asking worshippers to refrain from physical contact with each other. We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation, and will keep you informed. As updates become available, we will send emails, update our website, and use social media to get information out. Please join us in praying for those affected by this virus.

Psalms 91 
5 You will not fear the terror of night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,

6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
nor the plague that destroys at midday.

7 A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.
