The Pastor’s Pen

Know this: We’re ready when you’re ready.

This past Sunday marked our fourth week back for in-person worship. Clearly, with the number of COVID-19 cases continuing to rise, many are choosing to worship from home. But I want you to know that the Health Advisory Team and church staff are doing an amazing job to help keep everyone safe. For instance…

*Masks are required for attending our in-person worship services.

*Hand sanitizer is to be used and is widely available in our facility.

*Latonya, our custodian, deep cleans in both the sanctuary and CLC
every week.

In terms of you and your family coming back to in-person worship, know this: We’re ready when you’re ready.

Speaking of being ready, our seniors did an amazing job this past Sunday with their speeches. They were deeply personal and reflective, and each senior did a remarkable job in placing their spiritual journey within the wider context of a loving community of faith. If you have not had a chance to watch our worship services from Sunday, please take the time to listen to what our seniors had to say. This special group of young people will really bless you!

This Sunday we will sing the patriotic hymns and talk about what it means for God to bless America. If you want to get a head start, read 2 Chronicles 7: 11-22. I look forward to this special time of worship and prayer as we remember the blessings we’ve been given as a nation.
