“Times are weird but God is good!”
That’s what one of my sisters-in-Christ said yesterday… from a safe distance.
Truly we are living through unprecedented days. I’m guessing it could be the defining event of a generation.
But we continue to turn to the living God, and in time we will see his goodness and perfect plan through all that is happening around the world right now.
Praise be to the LORD God, the God of Israel, who alone does marvelous deeds.
Praise be to his glorious name forever; may the whole earth be filled with his glory.
Amen and Amen. (Ps 72:18-19)
AS WE WAIT…
I encourage you to continue to STARVE THE VIRUS and FEED YOUR FAITH. Please listen to the advice of the medical professionals and civil authorities in our province, who continue to tell us to wash our hands and take seriously our efforts to self-isolate and maintain safe social distancing. Some of those professionals are our brothers & sisters in Christ. Let’s heed God’s guidance through them.
1) Regular worship services remain cancelled, in compliance with the provincial ban on meetings larger than 50 people.
As with last weekend, the Sunday sermon and other online content will be available on our YouTube channel here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCTqTbVrt8AGJtLHreXrEpyQ/
Though we miss each other dearly, we are still the church.
2) Our Leaders continue reaching out to everyone in the congregation regularly by phone or online. Please do the same. We may be physically distant, but we can be socially & spiritually connected through this! Plenty of contact, even if it’s from a “safe” distance, will be so vital in the days ahead. We are a family. Family finds a way. Give someone a call or send a text today.
3) Helpful Links: We realize you are probably spending more time online than ever before. During these days of isolation, we can be thankful for the online world, much like the early church could be grateful for the travel and postal opportunities afforded by the Roman empire. We can use these tools for good if we are intentional, but we must make a PLAN. Don’t just endlessly watch the news, binge on Netflix, or scroll your social media feeds. Watch your online diet, because not everything is healthy!
