Message from Pastor Kerns

The mystery of God'’s ways is sometimes hidden from the wise and intelligent. Jesus associates with those often excluded from the religious community. Like Paul, we struggle with our own selfish desires and seek God’s mercy and forgiveness. We gather to be refreshed by Christ’s invitation: "Come to me, all you that are weary." Gathered around word, water, and meal we find rest for our souls.

We are moving into a new phase in our worship life. This Sunday will be the first Sunday for us to gather together since March 15. It will be very different than what we are used to in that we will meet in Fellowship Hall to begin with and we will have one service at 9:30AM. Physical distancing and masks and screenings will take place. Safety is the key for all of us to be able to come together and worship. We encourage you to come if you feel safe in doing so. If you are not sure and are at risk of the virus, please stay home. We will continue to record the service and send out the message via email and by US Mail for those who do not have computers.

You will find the scripture readings and the message for this week attached to this email. I offer you the peace of Christ and pray that you are all safe. Keep yourselves in prayer and scripture as we wait for the day that we can reunite in worship with each other.
