It seems impossible that summer is nearly ended, and fall is on its way, and we are still out of our sanctuary and not worshipping together. We have run out of adjectives to describe how tiresome and disconcerting this pandemic has made our life. The unrest in our streets and the divisiveness of our political scene not to mention natural disasters leaves us feeling overwhelmed, and we long for the solace of worship and the companionship of one another.
Our church leadership continues to consider carefully the things we can do and the things we can’t. We will be starting a book study in September limited to ten persons. We are creating fellowship opportunities out of doors as long as the weather permits. We are working on upgrading our online worship with new equipment and expertise. It is slow going. Our thanks to Judy Entenman who has spent countless hours on helping figure this out! We have further to go. We thank you for your patience in all this, your toleration of less than perfect attempts, and your faithfulness in supporting our church when you are missing so much that is of value to you. God bless you and thank you!
We are hoping the rate of infections from Covid-19 will begin to drop. When the numbers are back down, we will resume public worship. We don’t know when that will be. So far, we are seeing expanding infections and outbreaks that stem from worship and weddings and funerals. We cannot risk bringing this to any of you. Patience now will mean a joyful reunion later, one I know will be as unprecedented as this world pandemic has been. In the meantime we pray, we hope, we love, we continue to be the church in all the places we are. Thank God for that for never has the good news of the gospel been more important to people than now. Hang on.
God is with us! We will have our Easter Day!
Pastor Linda Farmer-Lewis
