> FAMILY SUNDAY SCHOOL for June 7th  @



I have been keeping tabs on the actions of sister parishes, reviewing CDC recommendations, communicating with your Council presidents, and now with Governor Baker’s restrictions on gathering sizes it is clear that our campuses need to close their doors to all activities, including recovery groups, within the facilities extended thru AT LEAST July 1st.

We are not closing the church, only the buildings. There will be worship uploaded to YouTube midday on Sundays. Also, I will be setting up ZOOM to allow for a Wednesday evening Lenten discussion through this conferencing portal: if you have a computer you may be visually engaged through your on-board cam, and it appears there may also be a phone-in capacity. Email me if you are interested and we’ll look to get you hooked up 😊

Even though the facilities will be closed, the operations and costs of the church are continuing. Please drop your offerings off in the parish mailboxes, or mail them in to be current.

Ann and I expect continuing in the office Mondays-Thursdays from 9 AM – 3 PM to manage the business and needs of Grace We will be contacting shut-ins for encouragement that is so important. Please, call some of your friends and other members and share encouragement with them as well!

If you or someone you know needs our help, please email or call and we will get to work.

Let us listen to the recommendations of our elected officials and appointed officials, practice social-distancing, good hygiene, and look to the Lord for our strength and hope!

Psalm 46:1-7

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in times of trouble.
That is why we are not afraid even when the earth quakes

or the mountains topple into the depths of the sea.
Water roars and foams, and mountains shake at the surging waves.

There is a river whose streams bring joy to the city of God,

the holy place where the Most High lives.
God is in that city. It cannot fall. God will help it at the break of dawn.
Nations are in turmoil, and kingdoms topple.

The earth melts at the sound of God’s voice.

The Lord of Armies is with us. The God of Jacob is our stronghold.

Grace & peace +

Pastor Andrew
