From Pastor Joy, 

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea The Lord Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress. (Psalm 46:1,2,7).

You are not alone! God is with us! This is the message that we hear throughout Scripture, and a message that applies to us right now, when many are feeling alone. Take strength from God, who will never leave or abandon you!

Let us pray for each other, and keep connected in ways that are safe and healthy during this time of a pandemic. Although our church has cancelled church services and meetings through March 29th (and possibly later as well), we will hope to have a recorded service available, in addition to the recorded sermons which are already on our website.

God of love and grace, we welcome you into our homes, our lives, our families and our communities. We welcome you with open doors and open hearts, even while we are separated from each other for the sake of good health. Pour out your Spirit of Hope and Healing. In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen
