Annual Blessing Service THIS SUNDAY!
A Note from Pastor Jerry!
So how did you celebrate the birth of Christ? 1st time in my 34 yrs of ministry that I missed a Christmas eve service. And, Christmas day... via FaceTime from the living room to my bedroom! Its been a "crazy covid Christmas." I'm on day six of my quarentine and intend to be ready to worship this Sunday in-person at our Annual Blessing & Testimony Service!
As I have mentioned before, though its been a tough year, God's blessing is still a reality. Take a moment and review 2020. Where do you see His hand on your life? In what circumstance did He bring you through? Where did the Lord show up at just the right time? If you can't find anything, maybe you're not paying attention, maybe you're not close enough to Him to see where He's working. The word of God tells us to, "Come close to God and he will come close to you." (James 4:8 NLT)
If you are more of a writer and not a speaker, type up your testimony and email it to: newhorizons.chog@gmail..com. If you won't be in-person, but would like to do a video testimony, go ahead and record it on your phone, laptop, or tablet. Keep it to 3-4 minutes, tops, and we'll use it on Sunday. You may need to save it in Google Drive and give us permission to download it. If you are able to be present and want to share your blessing testimony, then do yourself a favor and jot down some notes and keep it clear and to the point. Again, 3-4 mins in length. Take a look at your 2020 Blessing and see where the Lord has been speaking into your life!
Looking forward to hearing & seeing how God has blessed you in 2020.
Are you with me?
Happy New Year! to you and yours, from myself and Debb ~
OPEN FOR WORSHIP IN-PERSON & ONLINE!
We want to assure you that we are remaining open for in-person worship, taking precautions and making sure the facility continues to be sanitized after our Sunday worship. We want to remind all who would attend of these important guidelines:
1. Attend ONLY if you are NOT experiencing signs of illness-
(i.e. - fever, persistent/active cough, unusual tiredness or fatigue, shortness of breath, muscle aches, chills, sore throat, runny nose, headache)
2. If you've been directly exposed to someone within the last 48 hrs who has tested Covid positive, have had a recent loss of taste, or just not sure you should be around others, please follow the CDC's guidelines for self-quarentining. You may not have it, but we'd rather you miss a Sunday than to cause someone else to become ill.
3. Minimize your risk by using hand sanitizer, being contientious of the space you give others and yourself, wear a mask, limit touching your eyes and nose, or simply stay at home. You can watch the Sunday message on FB Live by going to New Horizons Community Church's Facebook page.
We want to be sure to remind our church family to be diligent in their self & other's protection. We want to encourage folks to spread out in our large worship area and know that you won't be crowded. If it is too uncomfortable or the risk is too high for you to be around others for worship who may not be wearing a face covering, we understand. We love you and want to see you stay healthy so we can see you again at New Horizons when this crazy season of life is done.
Be in prayer about testimonies of God's Faithfulness to you in 2020.
Prepare to share with your Church Family!
