A Message from Your Senior Pastor
Sister and Brothers in Christ,
 
I hope you were able to join us for worship online this morning. If you missed it, you can watch it  here .
 
During the message, I suggested two ways you can stay prayerful during this anxious time. Common Prayers for Extraordinary Days is a document you'll find below and can print at home and tape to the mirrors in your bathroom or beside your kitchen sink. Each time you wash your hands you can let it be a time for prayer.
 
A second way to pray during these days is the ancient practice of breath prayer. Here is a  link  to a great article about this simple yet powerful prayer practice.
 
Friends, let's all live with courage and quiet confidence as we work together to "flatten the curve."
 
Grace & Peace,
 
Rev. Donnie Wilkinson
