A Word From The Pastor...


As we continue our journey together through this terrible pandemic, we are comforted by the words of the Apostle Paul who wrote in 2 Corinthians 4:8-9, "We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair;persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed..." As children of the living God, we are eternal from the moment or our new birth.  
It is certainly heart breaking to not be able to gather in our respective houses of worship this Easter week.  Some churches have been resorting to "Drive-In" services in their parking lots for Good Friday and Easter Sunday.  While I laud the heart of the intent in this effort, I have decided as your pastor that for the purposes of our witness in this community, that this is not in keeping in "good faith" the directives of our governor to "Shelter in Place" and "STAY HOME". Jesus commanded us to, "Render unto Caesar that which is Caesar's and unto God that which is God's".  I believe that I have a biblical duty to lead our church in a manifestation of good cooperation with our governmental authorities who I believe are working in all our best interests to defeat this pandemic.  I don't believe we manifest a good witness by putting spiritual practice ahead of our neighbor's (or our own brother's and sister's) safety. 
May God bless each of you as we celebrate the Risen Savior.   

Remember, "The Best Is Yet To Come!"
