Beautiful! “Just a Closer Walk with Thee”

My mom called with an Easter request for her favorite song ‘Just a Closer Walk With Thee’ in remembrance of some dear friends we lost this past week. This goes out in their memory and to all who have been called home. May their souls be guided gently to that shore. ❤️🙏🏾

[03/14/20]   From Pastor Steve:
Sisters and Brothers,

After consulting with our church leadership and receiving Mayor Patrick Peyton’s request that we don’t hold our normal church gatherings this Sunday, we have decided that we WILL NOT have public worship this Sunday, March 15th. We will have a combined 10:45 am service that you will be able to watch online. Pastor Kurt and I will preach a joint sermon and Pastor Melissa will be interacting with you on Facebook. You can catch the livestream on our website, or you can watch on Facebook. I encourage you all to join us and watch together is we seek to stay centered in the love and grace of God during these difficult times.

In addition to Sunday morning, all regularly scheduled Sunday events will be canceled. This decision is for this Sunday only. We will make a decision about our Wednesday evening activities early next week. The situation with the Coronavirus is a fast changing situation. We will do our best to make the best, measured decisions to keep us all safe. Please inform members of our church that may not get email or be connected on Facebook.

Keep praying Proverbs 3:5-8!

Grace and Peace,
Pastor Steve Brooks

Sisters and Brothers,

Over the last few days, the situation surrounding the Coronavirus and the global economy has certainly intensified. Difficult times such as these can feel like a punch in the gut that knocks us off our feet and leaves us wallowing in fear. I want to remind you, followers of Jesus, that you have been given resources from God to stay steady, measured and faithful during difficult times. When we trust in the LORD, acknowledge him and rely on his wisdom in times of uncertainty, we can trust that he will give us his peace, guidance, and provision. During this time may we be conduits of God’s love, peace, and grace to a world that is quite afraid. Let me encourage you that when that fear grips your own heart to pray this passage from Proverbs and let its words deeply touch your soul.

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD and shun evil. This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones.

Proverbs 3:5-8

At this time it is our plan to have worship on Sunday. We will be taking extra precautions with door handles, bathrooms, children and youth areas and we won’t have communion this Sunday. Also, I’d like to remind you that we do livestream both of our 10:45 services on our website and Facebook. If you can’t join us in person, we’d love to have you worship with us online. We will stay mindful of the situation and take reasonable, measured action as we hear more from our elected officials. Please don’t hesitate to call, text or email me with any of your concerns.

Grace and Peace,
Pastor Steve Brooks
