Operating as usual

On Sunday, May 2, a member of our congregation, Wes Meeks, will share a message from God's word based on James 1:1-8:

James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, To the twelve tribes in the Dispersion:
Greetings.

Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.

Frances Jane Smith, 80, of Midland, passed away on Monday, December 21, 2020. Frances was born on January 31, 1940 to Ethel and Coy Cavitt in Stamford, TX. A lifelong Midland High School Bulldog, she was extremely proud of her 30+ year career at her alma mater and school district. She was active and filled with energy for most of her life, always on the move and ready to go somewhere and do something, whether it be around town or going on longer adventures. She looked forward every year to spending time at the beach in Anna Maria Island, Florida where she loved renting a bike and riding to the little shops around town. We will always think of her when enjoying soft serve ice cream at Sonic or Chik- fil-A or drinking a coke, two of her favorite treats. We will remember Frances as someone who celebrated life well. She celebrated her marriage well. She and Jimmy were married over 61 years and not a day passed that she didn't brag about her love and adoration for Jim. He was her hero. She celebrated holidays well, especially Christmas and the Fourth of July. Her love for these days overflowed into her home decor, wardrobe, and paper goods. She created a home where we could celebrate well. Around breakfasts of pancakes with her homemade syrup, an annual singing of the twelve days of Christmas, and lots of laughter, she wanted her family to have space to celebrate together. Most importantly she poured her heart into making sure those around her felt celebrated. She carefully selected her cards, words, and gifts to ensure that those she cared for felt special during the important milestones and celebrations of their lives. We know that if you had the joy of knowing her you had the privilege of being celebrated by her. We are most proud of the fact that she was a faithful follower of Jesus. Discipled from a young age by her father she continued in her love for the Lord and his word throughout her life. We are grateful the family tradition of discipleship was carried on through her dedication to raising children who also love Jesus, who have also passed this on to her grandchildren. A longtime member of Main Street Church of Christ, her church family was important to her and she found joy in connecting with anyone who entered the church doors, she especially loved doting on babies and young children on Sunday mornings. While we will miss our wife, mother, and grandmother dearly, her belief in Jesus leaves us assured of her eternal life with him. She is survived by her beloved husband of 61 years, Jimmy Smith; Her three children Phillip (Mary), Teri (Mike) Foulds, and Scott (Janet). She had 7 grandchildren: Reagan, Landry (Jamie), Sutton, Sawyer, Brock, Addison, and Sloan, who all, plus a few others who called her Granny. Frances is also survived by her younger brother David Cavitt, younger sister Cherry (EJ) Matchus, and sister-in-law Faye Cantrell. She will also be missed by many nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her parents Coy and Ethel Cavitt and several beloved aunts and uncles. Celebration of Life will be held on Monday, December 28, 2020 at 11:00AM at Downtown Church of Christ. The family is requiring mask to attend and all social distancing guidelines will be strictly maintained.

downtownmidlandcoc.org Located on the northwest edge of downtown about a block from Midland High School, Christians have met at North "A" Street & Tennessee Avenue in Midland, Texas, since 1930.

[03/21/20]   The trial run this morning for a virtual worship service using the Zoom Meetings platform was a success. Rough estimate is 50 or so joined the gathering at various times. Start meeting Sunday morning at 10 ... worship begins at 10:30. Zoom link is available on our web page.

[03/14/20]   COVID-19
Leaders of our congregation met on Friday evening to determine how we should respond to the request by city officials to limit large gatherings of people as a means of slowing the spread of the COVID-19 virus. The plan as of now is to dismiss all regularly scheduled church assemblies for the rest of March. Thus, there will be no gatherings of our congregation beginning Sunday, March 15.

This virus seems to have minimal effect on the health of 80-85% of those exposed to it. However, the remaining 15-20% of the population whose immune system is low or who have chronic respiratory or heart problems are more vulnerable to the virus, and likely will need hospital care. For example, if 20,000 people in Midland were to contract the COVID-19 virus at once, at least 3,000 of them could need hospitalization. Eliminating large gatherings of people is unlikely to keep you from being exposed to the virus. What it IS likely to do is to slow the spread of the virus so that there is not a huge surge of very sick people all at once that overwhelm the capacity of our local health system.

Our plan is for someone to be present in the church office most of the time during regular office hours. Please be alert for further information, adjustments, and updates as this situation unfolds. Feel free to contact elders or ministers with questions, concerns, or needs that you may have.
