Greetings in the name of the Triune God. This week is Trinity Sunday and it was also supposed to be our first county worship service. Denise Shannon from Weldon Valley and I will be recording the service from Rankin where we were supposed to worship. It is also the first Sunday of the month so we will celebrate communion. Please have some elements with you (bread and juice or appropriate substitutes). We would like to thank OJ Metzgar and Howard Bostrom for the special music.
The Sessions of each church will be meeting next Monday and Tuesday evenings to begin the discussion of when and how we might resume our worship in the buildings. We will be looking at some information from the CDC and the Presbytery to make the best and safest informed decisions we can. Know that all of our health is still the number one priority.
Prayers of celebration this week are for Wayne and Rochelle Wendell who celebrated their 61st Wedding Anniversary on Sunday and also became great-grandparents to Drake Edward Underwood born Sunday weighing 8lb. and 3 oz. Parents are Dane and Steph Underwood and grandparents are Carl and Keri Underwood.
We continue to have a mid-day prayer service on Wednesdays at noon and Bible Study Thursday evenings at 7:00 p.m. A zoom link is attached for the prayer service.
Finally, friends this has been a week that has been most unsettling. Last night was the fifth night in a row of protests across our nation. Please hold our government leaders and the leaders of the groups most affected by these events in prayer. When we decide to share posts on social media in regards to these events please ask yourself first is this for information or is this to get back at what someone else said? We are all complicit in these events. When we speak, we need to do so with love and grace. This has a long way to go and has been going on since our nation began. We are a part of the problem or part of the solution. Decide whom you will be. Have a great week.
