"May the peace of the Lord be with you all."

Elijah finds the presence of God not in earthquake, wind, or fire, but in the sound of sheer silence. When the disciples face a great storm on the sea, they cry out with fear. Jesus says: "Take heart, it is I; do not be afraid." Amid the storms of life, we gather to seek the calm presence of Christ that soothes our fears. In comforting words of scripture and in the refreshing bread and cup of the Eucharist, God grants us peace and sends us forth to be a sign of God's presence to others. We continue to hold in person worship services in Fellowship Hall.

We continue to monitor the states requests and will continue to do so. If it becomes necessary to shut down again due to the spread of the virus, we will let you know as soon as possible. We are going to continue to post the worship services each week on the Facebook page and send these emails out as well as sending copies in the mail for those who request them who don't have a computer.

Pastor Kerns is on vacation for this Sunday, August 9. Pastor Jeffrey Compton will be our supply pastor. He is willing to share his message with us this week. I am grateful for his willingness in these difficult times to share his ministry with us. 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.

The August 9th Message will be posted when it is available.
