E-mail from the Pastor, September 17, 2020

Hi Church,

This Sunday we are continuing in the season of Pentecost which provides Bible Texts aimed at giving us examples or guidance in how to live a life empowered by the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit engrafts the character of love that we receive from Jesus at the time of salvation. This allows us the ability to live transformed lives. Paul says these are "living sacrifice lives" that owe nothing to anyone except love.

As we start a new study in Paul's letter to the Philippians, we are revisited again with this idea of love being lived out in the flesh in dramatic fashion. You can read about Paul's initial experience at Philippi in Acts 16 where the church begins with a woman named Lydia.

I expect that weather will allow us to gather outside this Sunday. Expect a wonderful day and a glorious worship. Bring your lawn chairs, your masks, and dress appropriately for the weather.

Hi Church!

I decided early that we will be gathering inside for worship tomorrow. I would have preferred to be outside, but conditions won't allow that. So we will be inside. Masks will be required. Social distancing is required. Early arrival is recommended, because it makes seating easier.

We don't want to make anyone feel compelled to come indoors because we realize that folks have health factors that would not make attending wise. We will have a video option online by 10 a.m. for those who opt not to come.
