Hello Easter People,
I pray that you are all doing well during this second week after Easter. I am so excited as we continue our worship focus on Love Your Neighbor. Together, we are building up towards May 2 for our Church Has Left the Building ministry event. Our Mission Outreach Team has once again outdone themselves in pulling together all types of projects that will help us move into our community and show abundant love for our neighbors. Please mark your calendar. We are hoping to make this one of our largest events of the year. There are plenty of safe socially distant projects and even projects that can be done ahead of time like writing cards. So sign up!!
We are aware of the rising COVID cases in our state. Our COVID Response Team will be meeting later this week to continue to make plans for safe in-person ministry and worship. We do feel confident in our worship protocols and will continue to offer an in-person worship experience for those who are comfortable being present at 10:00 am. Of course we will also be live streaming that service on our YouTube channel. We are thankful for the teams and small groups that are starting to meet in person and/or are continuing to use technology to stay connected and move forward in ministry.
Even in a pandemic, God is inviting us to worship, study, grow spiritually, serve others, and connect with other church friends. This can be easier said than done. If you are struggling with figuring out how to connect or reconnect please reach out to the staff or me. We would be honored to help you in this journey. We need to continue to be patient, to extend grace, and to be the bold church that God is calling us to be as we stay Christ Focused, Spirit Filled, and Mission Driven.
Love and Peace in Christ,
