A blessed Holy Week to you all! We miss all of you in worship, but continue to pray for you and pray that we will be able to gather in person again soon! Please let us know if you have any needs or if you know of anyone with needs in this challenging time.
Our council has made the decision to continue to keep our building closed and activities cancelled through April 30. This is to follow the directive of the CDC and keep everyone safe. We are saddened not to not be able to have in-person Holy Week services, but are busy preparing on-line worship that we hope you will all participate in. And we are VERY MUCH looking forward to celebrating Easter in a big way when we are able to come together in person again! The Resurrection of Jesus is not just a one-day event. It is a promise we celebrate every Sunday.
Below this letter, you will find a devotion guide for Holy Week at home.. This gives you the schedule and readings for all the services coming up. It also gives you some activities, prayers, and devotions you can do at home. We hope you will use these to enhance your Holy Week experience.
We do have online giving available on our website. Offerings can also continue to be mailed to the church office. We are thankful for all you can do to help us with our continued ministry needs.
We will continue to keep you posted of changes. Please let us know of any emergencies that come up or, again, of anything that you or anyone you know needs. We will continue to do our best to connect with you and provide worship services in the various ways we can.
Thank you and God Bless you! Pastor Jeni and Pastor Sid
