Worship Outside With Us Next Sunday

We’ve scheduled an outdoor worship service with hymn singing for next Sunday, September 27, at 10:30 in the east parking lot. Please bring a camp chair or a folding chair.

The east parking lot will be blocked off, but there should be plenty of parking available off the street around the church and in the west parking lot.

Many of you have been prudent and extremely cautious during this pandemic. Please don’t feel any pressure to attend. We plan to continue to livestream and broadcast on KABI 1560 AM just as we have been. It does not make you a bad Christian, nor does it indicate spiritual sloth if you continue to worship from home because of health concerns.

A New Stole

I received a new stole in the mail today. It’s multicolored so I can wear it anytime I want to. White for Christmas, Easter and other high holy days, green for Ordinary Time, purple for Lent, blue for Advent, red for Pentecost. I’m so pleased with it that I’m having to remind myself of Joseph’s special robe and how it got him into trouble—and try to avoid the same pitfalls.

If I don’t look happy, it’s only because I’m really bad at taking selfies and I was getting quite frustrated with my inability to get the picture I wanted.

Raising Our Ebenezers

We are in a global pandemic afflicting everyone, and there are countless difficulties besetting individual members of this congregation. For that reason, it seems to me that it would be good to hum along with “Come, Thou Font of Every Blessing,” Read 1 Samuel 7:3-17, and preach on our need to raise an Ebenezer this coming Sunday (August 16, 2020). If the only Ebenezer you know is Scrooge, well, that’s one more reason to join us for worship and look to God for encouragement.
