|My dear church family, oh how I miss seeing each of your warm, smiling faces. I miss our laughter, our connection and just being WITH you. We are certainly doing our best to remain connected during this very odd time. Some of the ways we are doing that is through more frequent Facebook posts, storytime with pastor Melissa for kids, a youth devotional from Tricia on the Facebook group, and of course, our daily prayer time. I hope you will consider joining us some morning at 10:30 am as we gather to pray for each other.

I know my heart has had times of worrying and anxiety so I totally understand what most of you might be feeling. I, too, know the stress of trying to balance being a working mom and keeping my kids on task with new online learning. I am even married to a teacher who is trying to learn these new tactics along with his kids. It can be overwhelming if we let it. I invite you to pause and take a deep breath. Breathe peace, my friends. I promise that this storm won’t last forever.
Try to remember the things that you are thankful for. Don’t let the news overcome you with worry and strife; we have much to be thankful for. In this crazy time, I am so very thankful for each of you! Again, I remind you, none of us knows what tomorrow holds, but we ALL know WHO holds tomorrow!
God bless, much love and many virtual hugs,
