COVID-19 Monday, March 16

Dear church family,
Yes, church “family.” Like any family, our church family doesn’t stop being a family when they are not physically together.
As a church family, we worship together and are blessed to gather on Sundays and through the week.  But there is so much more that makes us a true family, and those things don’t end when our Sunday service is over.
And so, in this time of uncertainty, we are reminded that we can cast all our anxiety on God, our Father, because he cares for us (I Peter 5:7).  In these days of fear, our Father says, “do not fear, for I am with you” (Isaiah 41:10).  In these days of isolation Jesus reminds us that he will be with us always (Matthew 28: 20).
These are beautiful promises.  And with these assurances, we can continue on as God’s family.  Pray for one another. Check  up on each other, by phone or email. Encourage one another.  Continue to read through the Gospel of John, using the outline in the March Newsletter, knowing that others are reading those same words with you.  Follow the Bridge App for updates and prayer requests.  While we won’t be gathering on Sundays, until further notice, I will be sharing a message and prayer via our website and the Bridge App. 
We are the family of God.  That is our comfort and assurance for the days ahead.   
Pastor Rita
