We have come to the final holiday weekend of the 2020 summer season. I can’t say like other years that we will be getting back to normal with school starting, people staying close to home and the church gearing up for the fall season etc. In this year we have not known what normal is. During this Fall Season we will be traveling in fear and uncertainty as the pandemic carries on. But, as a church we must move on with the ministry God has called us to do.
Please in your daily devotions keep our young people in your prayers. The children who will be attending public schools, and college and university students need our prayers. Be in prayer for the teachers, professors, bus drivers and all others who are involved with the day to day operations of our schools and institutions of higher learning. The level of fear is running very high in our society today!
As a church family we need to put our faith in our Heavenly Father that He will keep us safe. Yes, we need to do all the things that we have been told to do concerning this pandemic, but we also must have faith and trust our Lord that He will get us through all of this.
A reminder that The Cold Plate Fundraiser is on September 12th. If you have not got your order in, please do so as soon as you can. If you know of others who are planning to place an order, please encourage them to do so soon! This will enable the, the Social Committee to have a better idea of how much food they need to prepare.
There is a prayer time before the Sunday Worship service at approx. 9:45 AM. This takes place near the new office.
