We continue our time of worship from the Promised Land tomorrow as we "Fall into God's Grace". It is hard to imagine all that has transpired since this COVID-19 virus has changed almost everything in our lives. Yet, one thing never changes and that is God's desire for us to experience grace in our lives and to share God's grace with others. Through the ups and downs God is trying to extend grace to us so that we might have a hope that no events in this world can strip away. We come to worship so that we can be reminded of that grace and so that we are strengthened for the rest of lives. Worship is the time where we are to remind ourselves that we have the gift of God's grace and to celebrate that gift. All the terrible news and the chaos in this world can be overcome and not bring us down if we can remember the gift of grace the Creator of the world has gifted to us. So we come in the midst of elections, pandemics, racism, economic struggle, division, droughts and storms to remind ourselves that we have a hope that rises above the sin and brokenness of this world. So worship we will begin tomorrow morning at 10am. It might be cloudy but the rain is supposed to hold off until after our time of worship together. We have a pavilion to be under if needed, we have heaters if needed, we have God's grace to connect us. Joe Coleman will be leading the singing. After he sang last time there were many requests to have him sing again and Joe felt inspired to offer up his gift to us again. Songs that Joe will lead us in will include "Peace in the Valley", "He Touched Me", and "Take my Hand, Precious Lord".
Attached is an electronic version of our bulletin but paper copies will also be on the table at the entrance of the pavilion. The table will also have our approved re-entry plan for the church, along with some daily devotionals, and masks too.
Those in vehicles can park at the bottom of the hill or over by the volleyball net and turn into 95.7FM. The pavilion will be open with heaters on and of course people can sit in chairs anywhere that helps them feel comfortable and enjoy our time of worship together.
