Pastor message 07-02-20

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,

We are so grateful to hear from you how much you appreciate the way ministries have continued at Lord of Life in face of this pandemic. Thank you for your support and encouragement!

And thank you for your financial support – we could not continue without your commitment to the ministries we share. We have experienced a bit of a lag in giving – if you can cover for some of your fellow members who have lost jobs and therefore are not able to give as much, we would appreciate your contributions to our regular budget.

Reopening Plans:

As previously mentioned, your leadership is following the CDC guidelines, and unfortunately Covid cases have risen dramatically in Montgomery County. Tentatively, based on the numbers, we hope to open the building for in-person worship on August 2, with one service at 8:20am, with our 25% maximum attendance of 94. Please check out our policy for re-opening on our website.

Technology Updates:

Good news! We are making the building safer by adding ultraviolet light technology to all 11 of our HVAC units here at church. Ultraviolet light kills many types of airborne viruses and will make us safer, even after the pandemic is over.

Worship Updates:

Watch this weekend for an experiment in family worship called “Engage: House Church”. It is an interactive experience that includes all elements of worship:

  1. Gathering
  2. Word
  3. Meal
  4. Sending

We hope you’ll check out this new expression of worship. You can still join us on our website or Facebook on Sundays for our regular worship broadcast. Updated audio/visual equipment is being installed in the sanctuary and will be in use by July 19. Watch and let us know what you think of our new technology.

As always, look for Bible studies/discussions, devotionals, and Bible story readings for the kids each night led by various church families. We are all blessed when members share their gifts and talents.

Until we can see each other again, a great e-hug to all of you!

Grace and Peace,

Pastor Gary
