With thankfulness towards our Almighty God I can report the rates of positive tests for COVID-19 are still on a downward trend.

 

We will offer in-person worship again this Sunday, Sept 13th.   Communion will be offered the week of Sept 20th, with sign ups in next week’s newsletter.

 

To help us plan for appropriate seating and other logistics, please use this link to register for attending service this Sunday.  So you are aware, we will probably ask for this information every week to be sure we can accommodate everyone.

 

PLEASE USE THIS LINK TO REGISTER FOR ATTENDING SERVICE SUNDAY, SEPT 13th

 

As before, we strongly encourage anyone who is at-risk to participate in the service remotely. At risk include those who are 65 or older, especially those with cancer, chronic kidney disease, COPD, Immunocompromised systems, Obesity, serious heart conditions, sickle cell disease, or type 2 diabetes.  For a complete list, please see this page from the CDC.

 

Please read the above point again, and honestly assess if you are described in the above. While we reopen, the elders and pastor encourage in the strongest possible language for at risk individuals as described above to continue to participate in the service over the radio.

 

If you are badly missing the in-person gathering for worship and feel like you simply need to be present, then please, come.  And in the spirit of Christian love we ask that we all strive to maintain the hygiene protocols to protect our fellow Christians and allow each of us to gather in person for worship.

 

The hygiene protocols are simply what we have heard before.  Please maintain physical distance between family groups, avoid sharing objects, wash your hands before and after the service, and wear a mask while entering and exiting, and most especially during singing and responses.

 

For those who stay at home, please know you have our love, and we continue to uplift you before the throne of God in our prayers. Feel free to reach out to any of us with questions, concerns, or prayer requests.

IMMERSE

 
As part of our own exposure to God’s Word, a group has started to read Immerse: Messiah again. This will allow us to read through the entire New Testament in 16 weeks, with an average of 30 pages a week.

 

This week we are reviewing the past few week’s worth of material. Our discussion will cover pages 190-255 our books. This will covers Romans, Philemon, Colossians, Ephesians, Philippians, 1 Timothy, Titus, and 2 Timothy.  We will then meet on Monday evenings at 7:00pm via video chat and phone for our discussions of the readings.

 

Anyone is still invited to participate with us. If you need a new copy of the book, please reach out to me, as I have several extra copies in my office.

 

For those participating, there are lots of resources available here: https://www.tyndale.com/sites/immersebible/messiah-resources/ , including an audio recording of the readings, if you prefer to listen.

 

Everyone is welcome to send an email to me at any time during the week with any questions, concerns, or insights you find. I can either answer them or bring them up during a weekly meeting.

 

For our video chat, here’s the information from the software we’re using for this:
