CONGREGATIONAL CARE

A PERSONAL WORD

We have faced so many distractions, anxieties and fears this past week – I need to spend time with God! If we can’t worship together, take advantage of our pre-recorded service on our website or engage in a dedicated hour of prayer and Bible study. Reach out to those who may be affected more than you – those who may need groceries, a trip to the pharmacy, or are affected economically by the closings of schools and businesses. This is the time the church comes together to be the living body of Christ beyond the wall of our buildings! I will miss being with you in worship – but the Spirit of Christ will be with us until we gather again.

God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear,
through the earth should change,
Be still, and know that I am God.
– Psalm 46: 1, 2, 10

Always, 
Rev. Dr. Joe Pool,
Pastor
