Breakfast with the Master, Ringgold County’s Annual Easter series of inspirational messages, will return Holy Week, Monday, April 6 through Saturday, April 11, but with a whole new twist.
Breakfast with the Master is going virtual. They will be posted each morning at 6:30 a.m. on-line on the Ringgold County Ministerial Associations Facebook page and YouTube. Anyone on Facebook can participate by typing Ringgold County Ministerial Association in the search bar at the top of your page. It is hoped this format will allow everyone to enjoy the services on-line or over the phone, as individual participants’ health and changing national guidelines allow.
This change is to comply with President Trump’s and Gov. Reynolds’ requests of no gatherings larger than 10 people due to the Covid-19 coronavirus.
