A Note From Pastor Alan
Are you ready for snow? As I write this, snow is beginning to fall for the first time this winter. With anticipation and excitement I look out the window watching it fall. My thoughts are mixed however. It's fun and peaceful to watch the snow fall, go out and play in it, and just take in the beautiful scenes everywhere. On the other hand, I'm concerned about traveling in the snow (especially with a rear wheel drive empty pickup), wondering if it's a heavy snow will the power stay on, and should we hold church on Sunday. Yes, it's just Thursday and too early to begin to worry, but that's me.
Growing up in south Arkansas, snow was a rarity. If we had a half of inch of snow, the schools closed, business all closed, and the whole town stayed home. Since being in Washington, snow is still exciting for me.
Seeing the snow always reminds me of the Scripture verse, “Come, let’s settle this,” says the LORD. “Though your sins are scarlet, they will be as white as snow; though they are crimson red, they will be like wool." Imagine your sins staining your yard blood red. Then as Jesus moves into your life, all that red turns to a blanket of white snow. Jesus' sacrifice on the cross paid the price for your sins and made the way for your forgiveness. To see all your sins wiped away and your life is now clean and stain free. White as snow!
So, let it snow; let it snow!
Onward and Upward!
What If It Is Snowy Sunday Morning?
In the event of inclement weather on Sunday, we will post on Facebook if we are holding services at the church building. If we do not, we will as always have a service on Facebook.
Many of you in our church are eligible to get the COVID-19 vaccine. It's confusing on where, when and how to get one. The first place to start is with your primary care physician and follow their instructions.
You may want to visit the Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department at this link: COVID-19 vaccine in Pierce County | Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department (tpchd.org)
If know someone that doesn't have internet access or needs help, have them call the office and we'll try assist them the best we can.
Once we all are vaccinated, we'll be able to gather as a family once again. Until then stay healthy!

February's Memory Verse
All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned—every one—to his own way; and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all.
