From the pastor's pen...

 

JULY 2020

 

 

Dear Church Family,

            Grace to you and peace in these challenging times. We pray that all of our families are staying well even as we grieve the loss of so many due to Covid-19. 

 

            I want to thank you so much for your continued support of our church during these challenging times! We are entering our fourth month of online worship. It is so hard to be physically separated as a congregation for such a long time. Some churches have chosen to regather for worship; others have not. These are difficult decisions and we ask for your understanding. Please understand that your church is not “closed.” We are very much here for you. Worship continues. Kids’ CLUB lessons continue. Planning continues. Meetings continue. Counseling continues. The food pantry is open and serving the community. If you have pastoral care concerns, please contact me. If you wish to come to the church for quiet prayer, please contact me as well.

 

Some July updates:

Online Worship

Thank you for worshiping with us on Facebook Live. It is good to feel spiritually connected even though we are physically apart. A very big thank you to those who are currently assisting with worship: Meral Pontier, Bill Seaman, Joe Saponaro, Terri Sadler, Bill Pearce, Jim Cortiglia, and Debbie Hege.

If you are watching online, please try to say good morning or send a thumbs up so we know who is viewing. This is the best way we have of keeping track of attendance among our church family right now.

Although this is a very new experience for our church, it is indeed a blessing to be able to welcome long-distance members back to worship through this live online service!

 

Other In-Person Activities

The Bayshore Lunch Program remains closed. The Keyport Food Pantry remains open on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. All other in-person activities here are canceled until further notice.

 

God is bigger than coronavirus. Keep on praying and worshiping from home. Know that I miss you and pray for you daily. Remember that we are spiritually conncected even when we are physically separated!

                                       

                                                In Christ's service,
