Coronavirus

Over the coming weeks we will learn more about this virus as it invades our Dubuque community. As a church our response will be somewhat contingent upon how this all plays out. But right now, here are some behaviors we can adopt to assist us in being a healthy community:

First, if you haven’t already, adopt a habit of washing your hands. It is a proven way to prevent the spread of any disease.

Second, if you don’t feel well, stay home. Here are the clues: coughing, sneezing, fever, nausea, achiness, or any flu-like symptoms. We love you and will see you the following week. But stay home.

Third, let’s temporarily modify some church routines. Instead of hugging or shaking hands, just say “Hello” and if necessary, use elbow bumps.

America for Christ Offering 2020

In March we begin collecting for this special denominational offering and our goal is $700. The theme this year is “You Shall Love Your Neighbor as Yourself” from Matthew 22:39. Funds collected go toward assisting families who have lost homes to floods, to children living lives of limitation in poverty and to seminarians preparing their lives for the ministry of the gospel and much, much more. The national goal is $1,000,000.

 

2020 Vacation Bible School

We are planning a weekend [Friday-Saturday] VBS on June 19-20. We are going to use Group’s “Anchored” Curriculum. Please begin praying about this event. Please consider participating in some way or another as well. Contact Christine Quintana if you want to help out.

 

Baptism

Baptism is an important part of a person’s faith-walk. It is a public pronouncement explaining the personal, inner working of God in a person’s life. We will have a baptism on Easter Sunday. Are you a Christian? Have you been baptized? If not, perhaps now is the time. Talk to the pastor.

 

Holy Week Devotional

There will be a limited number of 10-day devotionals, “The Cross,” available to those interested to be used from April 5-14. The subtitle is, “How the Death and Resurrection of Jesus Change Everything.” They will be available on Sunday, March 29.
