WORSHIP SERVICES/ACTIVITIES UPDATE

Church will continue with worship service only schedule
Last week, we took time to reflect on God’s work in our lives and in our church during 2020. For all the ways He demonstrated His presence with us, provided for us and sustained us, we are grateful. We celebrated the good things that came out of a difficult year.
Recently, our church ministry staff gathered for a time of prayer and planning for 2021. Prior to that meeting, I had asked them to pray and ask the Lord to guide them to a verse or passage of Scripture that might become our focus for the year. As we gathered and shared, it was obvious that the Lord was working in our hearts and moving us in the same direction.
Because of what we believe the Lord is leading us to do this year, we are going to pause our sermon series from the Gospel of Matthew and resume it later this spring. This Sunday, I want to share with you our prayer for our church in 2021, which is based on Ephesians 3:14-21 - especially verses 20-21. In addition to that prayer, we also believe that God is leading us to “refocus” our commitments as individuals and as a church on several key areas based on God’s work in the early church recorded in Acts 2:42-47. I will share a message from that passage the following Sunday. In the weeks that follow, we will consider some of these key areas individually and renew our commitments to them as individuals and as a church. I look forward to sharing these messages with you.
For now, we will continue to offer 8:30 and 11 a.m. in-person worship services only until further notice. At the appropriate time, we will communicate to you when we plan to resume other ministries of the church. Keep reading the Word, keep praying and keep looking for ways to love one another. I look forward to seeing you soon!
In Christ,
Bro. Trent
