Sunday

“Do not let sin control the way you live;

do not give in to sinful desires . . .

Instead, give yourselves completely to God, for you were dead, but now you have new life.

So use your whole body as an instrument to do what is right for the glory of God.”

~Romans 6:12-13 (NLT)~

 

 

 

In the midst of turbulent times, God sends unspeakable joy!

So far, most people have remained healthy.  Continue to ““play it safe” and STAY HOME.  Some people seem to be disobeying the orders to do that.  I’m afraid they will be among the sick in a week.  Use the pick-up services available in multiple locations.  Do not allow anyone inside your house, except the home health nurse!  Keep children away from their grandparents, etc.  because they are often carriers of the coronavirus.  Today, this Lord’s Day, more churches will be live-streaming their services.  Be sure to look at two or three.  If you do go out, make it a trip around the community to pray for people as you ride by their homes.  Stay in your car.  Don’t stop anywhere!  Use your phone to check on people.  If you deliver something to a home, leave it on the porch and knock and call.  Then, quickly leave.

 

 

 

Today, the Operation Christmas Child team was scheduled to visit Sunday School classrooms to take suggestions for April purchases.   You will have to be creative to make these purchases without going shopping in person, but I know you can do this.  Happy April Shopping!  Two new rules:

  1. Don’t enter any stores to purchase these.  Use your phone or internet.
  2. Have the items delivered to the church.  They can sit at the church and and be waiting for when this isolation period is over.
