Family and Friends:
The diminishing numbers of Covid cases and the increasing numbers of vaccinations are creating a welcome climate of optimism these days.
We know that we still need to exercise both faith and wisdom as we begin to open up more activities and opportunities for worship, discipleship, and fellowship. There are folks in our church and community who are still struggling with the virus, and we need to pray for them and be mindful of those who are still vulnerable. But we are prayerfully brainstorming ways we can responsibly do in-person activities, hybrid Bible Studies, and other opportunities to connect with each other and with the Lord. Plans are underway for summer activities for children and students as well. In each of these plans the operative and scriptural phrase is "as God wills."
Thank you for praying for wisdom for our leadership and for continued progress in our fight against the pandemic and all the hardships and heartache it has generated.
We continue our worship schedule of in-person worship at 8:30 and 10:00, with the 10:00 service also being livestreamed. As more and more folks are vaccinated, we anticipate growing numbers returning to in-person worship. Our 8:30 service has room for plenty more worshipers--and we also have some room in the 10:00 service. Whichever you choose, or if you choose to remain online at this time, we look forward to worshiping with you and gaining strength from our fellowship together.
