One of my favorite books, Children’s Letters to God, compiled by Stuart Hample and Eric Marshall continues to make me smile. Here’s a few (just as they wrote them):
Dear God, My grandpa says you were around when he was a little boy. How far back do you go? Love, Dennis
Dear God, I bet it is very hard for you to love all of everybody in the whole world There are only 4 people in our family and I can never do it. Nan
We read Thomas Edison made light. But in Sunday School they said You did it. So I bet he stoled your idea. Sincerely, Donna
Dear God, thank you for the baby brother but what I prayed for was a puppy. Joyce
Dear God, I didn’t think orange went with purple until I saw the sunset you made on Tues. That was COOL. Eugene
These are certainly days for intentionality and nimbleness as we battle the dangerous COVID-19 virus as a community. During this season of required social distancing, please know that your church family is standing with you. At this moment, Wednesday afternoon, March 18, we will hold live stream worship on Sunday, March 22. We will continue to offer live stream worship at 9:30 and 11:00 a.m. until further notice. We are counting on you to support your church during these challenging days with your prayers, presence (worshipping online), gifts, (giving online or sending your offering in the mail), and witness. We celebrate that last Sunday morning nearly 290 different computers logged in for online worship. The choir and persons leading worship felt God’s Spirit and felt your presence! Join us this Sunday at 9:30 am or 11:00 am. Online worship can be accessed easily on our website or through our Facebook page. We will post all updates on our website and notify you through the electronic newsletter. People in our congregation are mobilized to help you with food deliveries or a supportive phone call; please let us know how we can help.
Please know that our prayers are with you during this challenging season.
