Reminder: we will not be having services Sunday, March 22 because of the coronavirus. Since I spoke with you last Friday, Bishop Rob notified clergy that we should not have services at our churches until further notice. I will be on a conference call with him late next week and may get a sense of the possible timeline. I will update you in next week's phone call.

For Our Community:
Something that I want us to do together starting on Monday: I want us to stop whatever we are doing at noon and take time to pray together as a community Matthew 18:20 “Jesus tells us where two or three are gathered in my name I am there among them”. Despite our physical separation, we will be gathered in his name
Pray for all those affected by this: caregiver, medical personnel, researchers, our leaders, and for each other
I also urge you to get on the phone and call someone inside the church and outside the church and check in on them. What better way, what better time than now to live into our mission statement “ to care for our own in every generation, and to tend to our neighbors as ourselves.”
Something we haven’t thought much about - if you can, please mail pledges and offering to the church - services may be on hiatus but our expenses aren’t. We want to emerge from this crisis and hit the ground running. Please send your offering to the post office address because it's safer: P.O. Box 102, Conyers, 30012
