~Matthew 11:28
Zoom Council Meeting
Monday, March 23, 2020
Though currently unable to meet in person this month, the Congregation Council will be taking advantage of the latest in conferencing technology.

We will meet on Monday, March 23rd at 7 pm from the safety of our own homes by videoconferencing. Please keep our leaders in your prayers for their continued discernment and leadership in these very challenging times.
While we may not be worshiping in person over the next few weeks the mission of Incarnate Word continues. 

Over the past many months, members of our congregation have been generous in their regular offerings, resulting in one of the most vibrant years in recent history. Your weekly and monthly gifts have enabled us to expand the horizons of our outreach efforts and for that, we are tremendously grateful. Now, in these uncertain times, your continued generosity is more important than ever. 

Though we are unable to come together in person, the needs of our community both within and outside our walls continue. Even as we practice "social distancing" the hands-on outreach of Mustard Seed Kitchen continues as we adjust to a "take-out only" option. Staff continues to maintain our facilities, provide for spiritual growth, be good stewards of the resources entrusted to it, all the while keeping us connected through phone calls, emails, and virtual meetings and studies.  

Your continued financial support of our ministries is critical to the well-being of our congregation and to our proclamation of the gospel here in the neighborhood. Though currently unable to come together on Sunday mornings, please consider mailing your offerings in to the church on a regular basis. Your ongoing offerings will assure that much needed ministries continue and we have the staff necessary to lead us.
