Staying In touch with God, Family, Church family, and the Community during this Pandemic

I do not know about you, but I see that I am a person of routine. This is becoming more difficult for me as I wade through these days surrounded by social distancing. To begin with, it was a “change of pace," but the new has worn off. I can see some good things that have come out of this time. I see that families are spending more time together.

Pastor’s Paragraphs

In the past week we have moved from the Thanksgiving season into the Advent Season. It seems as though, it has been a rush, and our schedules are already full of activities. If we are not careful, this season will just be more parties and events and we will be exhausted from the many events surrounding this very special time of the year. The Advent season is to help us look toward the celebration of the coming of the Christ Child. It seems that in just a few days decorations have come out of … [Read more...]
