Dear Friends,

What a joy it is to be part of the church of Jesus Christ with you! While I miss seeing you throughout the week, I have enjoyed hearing stories you have told or shared about ways you continue to be in fellowship “together”. Many have dropped off food for the pantry or you’ve filled the Blessing Box with some items. Lots of you have joined in worship and study via live stream or zoom. Some of you have begun to gather in outdoor locations sitting apart, but laughing together. The church being the church!

This week we invite you to join in some quality, purposeful time reading the scriptures and responding in your own way (we provided some ideas if you want) to the way God invites us into ministry together. The way God calls us to Be the Church by SERVING our neighbors, SERVING with our feet, SERVING with our heart, SERVING with our words and SERVING with our hands. The scriptures are our foundation and our actions are our response.

1 Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth!
2 Serve the Lord with gladness!
Come into his presence with singing!
3 Know that the Lord, he is God!
It is he who made us, and we are his;
we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
4 Enter his gates with thankgiving, and his courts with praise!
Give thanks to him; bless his name!
5 For the Lord is good;
his steadfast love endures forever,
and his faithfulness to all generations.
-Psalm 100

With Peace,Joy and Love,

Pastor Lissa
