Dear Church Family,
We will have church on Sunday for those who feel comfortable attending. Just remember to keep your distance from others, no touching them or your face and above all wash your hands. We have many in the church family who are physically compromised and we do not want them to get sick.
We have decided to not open the Thrift Shop until further notice, hoping that most of this business with the virus will blow over and be a thing of the past. We can hope! Please save your donations until after Easter and the TS staff will deal with them at that time.
If any of you become ill and need assistance please let Stan know so that those of us who are able can help you out. Jane
A PRAYER FOR TODAY
Thank you for your loving presence at all times and in all ways.
We praise you for who you are, our holy
and most worthy God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Today as we face together this virus, help us remember the words Jesus spoke to us the night before he died:
Peace I leave with you;my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. (john 14:27)
O Lord, we receive your peace that is
nor dependent on the world nor its circumstances,
We receive the deep peace of the Prince of Peace.
May this peace guard not only our hearts, but also the
hearts of all the world, especially those afflicted by this virus.
We pray you will fraw all people to find rest in you,
dear God, for you alone cause us to dwell in tranquility.
Please bless our civil and religious leaders, and guide
them to make the right decisions for the good of all.
We ask tht you remove this scourge from us, and through it bring us all closer to you our beloed Lord.
In Jesus name we pray,
The above prayer was sent out by "Living Grace" a religious supply company. We hope you will take it to heart as you pray it and that you will find further comfort from it during these times of uncertainty.
