Join us Sunday at the church. We will be meeting in the sanctuary or you may hear the sermon live on facebook.
We would like to take this opportunity to invite you to worship with us in our sanctuary on Sunday mornings at 11:00 a.m. We have taken great care to make the worship experience safe and inspirational for you. First, we are following state law in our sanctuary worship. We start with requiring a mask for all who worship with us on Sunday. Our offerings are being received in a basket on a table that is located in the back of the sanctuary and this eliminates the need of passing offering plates. The communion elements which include a prepackaged bread and cup are picked up on entering the sanctuary. This eliminates the need to pass these out during the service. We have our pews marked off for seating that allows 6 feet or more spacing. Following good medical practices is not due to a lack of faith but just common sense. We are commanded not to tempt the Lord.
We are living in trying times with so many aspects of our lives being changed due to the Covid 19 virus. Worship takes on new meaning as we deal with these changes in our daily lives. In the midst of change, it is good to know that God is the same yesterday, today and forever. His love and caring surrounds us in good times and bad.
In times like these our prayer list needs to be increased. We need to be praying for the health care community that cares for those that are ill in hospitals and nursing homes. We need to pray for those who are working in research to develop treatment and a vaccine for the virus. We also need to lift up victims and their families and those who are grieving for lost loved ones.
