Dear Church Family,
How do we live through these unprecedented days of trial and increased concern for our well-being as individuals and as a church community?
First, we pray for each other. As we pray, we are present to each other even when we are apart. As we pray, our love and our spiritual energies are sent to one another. So, I invite you to envision streams of love and divine energy moving between us in these days. Trust in the power of prayer.
Second, the Church leadership will maintain vital communication with our congregants to keep all informed of developments for our congregation. This will be accomplished by way of email blasts, phone calls, and mailings.
Third, it is our hope to upload worship content to our Facebook Page that you can access once posted. We are also looking into posting this content on the St. John’s website. We are planning to mail out this worship content to those who are not connected to social media.
Fourthly, we’ll find the ways to provide personal care to those who need assistance. For example, groceries can be picked up and delivered to those who are home bound. We are especially thinking of the elderly members of our congregation who are the most vulnerable. The Family Ministry is giving oversight to these needs.
Lastly, we’d like to remind you of your continued financial support of the Church. The Church Council met on Monday, March 16, and affirmed this important concern. If you are able to mail in your tithes and/or contributions, this assures that these offerings are not lost to the Church. If you wish to hold them until the Sunday we are present in Church, then please do so. We thank you for these contributions of love and support.
As a Church Family, we remain united in the Spirit, strong in our love for each other, and steady in our faith in Jesus Christ.
“In all these things we are more than conquerors through [Christ] who loved us.” Romans 8:37
