A Devotional Thought
by Pastor Phil
"For the whole law can be summed up in this one command: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'"
But when I am told to "stay-at-home," how can I love my neighbor? I don't even get to see my neighbor anymore.
"And then (Jesus) told them,
'Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone.'"
Mark 16:15 (NLT)
But how can I "go" when I am told to "stay"? How can we as a church continue the mission of making Christ known to our neighbors, community and world when we are stuck at home?
These are the questions we as a church staff are wrestling with and praying through. These are questions for you to wrestle with and pray about as well.
Fortunately we have a God who says,
"Surely the arm of the Lord is not too short to save."
God is not confined by stay-at-home orders!
This email is filled with practical ways that God can use YOU to continue carrying out His mission. Below you will find ideas for sending cards, for praying and for donating food. Every one of us can write a short note and every one of us can pray for someone else. You can do it from home. It doesn't even take a lot of time. So please volunteer.
Let's start a wave of ministry from our homes.
We will continue to add ideas and opportunities as we think of more, but don't let our ability to come with ideas limit you. Feel free to come up with ideas that you will do and share them with us so others can join you.
