From Pastor Kerns

Though the word trinity is not found in the scriptures, today's second reading includes the apostolic greeting that begins the liturgy: The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all. In the gospel Jesus sends his disciples forth to baptize in the name of the Father, and the Son and the Holy Spirit. More than a doctrine, the Trinity expresses the heart of our faith: we have experienced the God of creation made known in Jesus Christ and with us always through the Holy Spirit. We celebrate the mystery of the Holy Trinity in word and sacrament, as we profess the creed, and as we are sent into the world to bear witness to our faith.

We are still on hold as it pertains to coming together to worship again here at the church. But the conversation has begun as the Covid-19 Task Force will be meeting this weekend to begin the conversation about reopening the church. There is much to consider as we have to think about everyone's safety and how can we come together safely. We will be following the CDC guidelines and our denomination's guidance. We will use the input from the Task Force and our insurance carrier who sent us information as we consider reopening the church. We will share information with you as it is developed.

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.
