  • Cancellation notice

    Cancelation of activities at our church:
    In view of our need to care for those among us and in our community most at risk of infection, and after much prayer and consideration, the Pastor and deacons have reached the painful decision that Crainville Baptist Church must cancel all organized activities, including all worship services and group meetings until April 30. During this time, please avoid using the church facilities except for serious need.

    We will continue to monitor the situation, and will consider additional measures as they are needed.
    The pastor and deacons remain available to minister to any needs in the congregation.
    The deacons met this morning (March 31st) realizing that our previous decision about the canceling of all church activities and our facilities would expire soon and Illinois' date of April 7th is near.
    After prayer and much consideration the following is our action concerning what should follow that expiration.
    "The current cancellation of church activities and facility usage is extended until such time as the state public health and governing authorities announce that it is safe for such activities to resume."
    Please take advantage of the daily devotions and videos made by Pastor Cody. Both of these can be accessed by our website
    If you have any questions, concerns or comments about our decision, please contact a deacon or Pastor Cody.
