Great Days Ahead! – Pastor’s Update

I hope this finds all of you doing well, continuing to weather the bizarre year that 2020 is. None of us could have ever predicted back on January 1 that this year would unfold as it has. But God is faithful, and He has walked with us and gone before us every step of the way. This has been a faith-building year!

As a church, we continue to try and meet the needs around us. We will continue to offer two Sunday morning services for the foreseeable future, 8:30 & 10:30 am, because it allows us to block off every other pew in order to provide some distancing. I know not everyone feels this is necessary, but there are many who do, and this helps more people feel they can get out and come to church for worship. Please know that we are trying to do the very best we can to navigate these issues and these times in the best way possible. Our 10:30 service will continue to be broadcast online each week, and Children’s Church (4-4th grade) is available in that service.

On October 4, we will be showing a Christian Documentary Film, “Before the Wrath,” at 6 pm. The film is 84 minutes long, and it focuses on recently rediscovered anthropological evidence from the time of Christ that relates to the coming Rapture of the Church ahead of the Great Tribulation Period. No one knows when the Lord will return, but we know that He will! This film helps us to think about His return and clearly presents the Gospel to help people be prepared for that glorious day. A Discussion Guide for the film will be provided. There is no charge. So invite friends and family to join us!

Beginning Sunday night, October 11, we will have a Sunday night Bible Study at 6 pm. We will study the book of Daniel using a Video Series by Dr. David Jeremiah, “Agents of Babylon.” I know this study will be a tremendous blessing to you and hope you will make plans to attend.  We will not have the song service, so as not to put too much on our accompanists since they are already doing two Sunday Morning Services. But this will provide another avenue for Bible Study together. It should last 30-45 minutes each Sunday Evening. I hope you will bring your Bible and join us!

Plans are being made for us to have our annual “Trunk or Treat” Outreach in October. It will have to be done differently this year, and we have some faithful folks working on those details. We will be sharing more soon about the date and how you can help. Just pray God will lead us, and will use it as a strong witness for Him!

It is a joy to Pastor this great church. I have been blessed beyond words to see your faithfulness to give and to serve through these very trying times. God is using this to make us stronger and more effective as we live for Him. Let me know if I can be of help to you, and always know I am praying for you and your family. May God bless you, and may He use us together for His Glory!
