To help protect our members and visitors, we have suspended gatherings of all kinds at the church building. This is also in accordance with the recommendations of the CDC and the orders of Governor Brown to avoid large gatherings, and to "stay at home" to help slow down the spread of this virus.
In the meantime, please join us for our online services. You can catch them in community on Facebook on Sunday mornings at 9:30 am. Please visit our Facebook page for services, and to keep up with our latest information. Services will also be posted under our "Watch" link at the top every Sunday morning, and can be watched any time after they've bene posted.
While this is a difficult time for us, let's focus on the positive.
- The church is not a building, nor is it confined to one particular place. WE are the church.
- We are still here for you. If you are in need of help, particularly with getting groceries or prescriptions, or running errands, or if you are available to help in any of these areas, please contact Pastor Matt - firstname.lastname@example.org.
- The Lord's Storehouse will remain open, for now, on Monday & Wednesday evenings from 6-8 pm. Please follow our new safety procedures if you plan on coming to the food pantry.
- If you have specific prayer requests, you can email them to us - email@example.com.
Note that we are here for you. The church hasn't gone anywhere, nor is it going anywhere. Do not hesitate to reach out to us if we can help you in any way.
“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own." (Matthew 6:25-34)
Blessings to you all,
Pastor Kurt Witten
