You are missed!Worship at this time cannot be in our sanctuary due to national health concerns but you don't need to miss worship by being unable to physically come to church. Let me outline for you the elements of true Christian worship:
* Prayer. God is with us wherever we call upon him. Now is the time to make use of your special prayer place at home and lift up praises, prayers and song. God hears our every prayer.
*Scripture read and proclaimed. Feed upon The Word every day. May it take root in your lives and bear fruit for the Kingdom.
*Regular celebration of the Sacraments. This one is reserved for church, since you can't baptize or take communion without a pastor. We will get back to celebrating soon, I promise!
*Fellowship with each other and the world. We can't gather together, but God has provided e-mail, telephone and the U.S. Postal Service that are definitely coronovirus-free! We can spread encouragement and the Love of Christ to one another anytime God nudges us.
* Self-offering. Serving God with our hands and our hearts is rewarding to us and pleasing to God. However, the Lord also expects us to worship Him by tithing as well. This supports the church and its ministries around the world. Besides, the money we earn isn't really ours. "The cattle on a thousand hills are yours, say the Lord..."-Psalm 50:10 We're pleased to give a tenth of what God has given to us to the church, where the Lord multiplies it in astounding ways! You may mail your tithe or bring it by.
Beloved, I will continue to pray for your and for our suffering world. Let me know what we can do for you during these trying times. Our office remains open Monday through Thursday 9 a.m. - noon. But just remember: even in isolation, you are never alone. Be not afraid, for God will take care of you!
In Christ's Peace,
Reverend Diana Circelli
