It is the last week in the fifth month of the pandemic, and still we wonder when positive news will lighten the heaviness under which we live each day. We hope and pray for the success of vaccine trials which we know are the only sure way to get beyond the effects this virus has on the health of people around the world and the dramatic changes we are all making for the sake of ourselves and others.
The new normal, which has become our routine for the last several months and likely will be for several months ahead, is not at all what we want, but it is what we have. Therefore, we push on in our individual lives, taking care of the critical aspects of life and discovering new ways to enrich our lives and relationships. As a church family, we address the ministries that are a part of our mission to the degree possible and discover new ideas and ways to be the presence of Christ in our community and beyond.
Each Sunday, I remind you of some of the ministry efforts that are on going, and on Wednesday evenings we gather for a time of prayer and Bible study in a Zoom Meeting. Prayers for members of our church family are offered and other concerns related to the ministries of the church are discussed during the study time. If you have concerns or questions, join us for this time of prayer together. It would benefit your church family to hear from you. If your schedule prevents you from joining our virtual gathering, you can email me or the church office.
