From the Shepherd's Heart
Who could have forseen the current condition of our world? Everything about our way of life has changed, all because of a virus. But we are not dismayed, because God will be with us through it all. The challenge facing the church is how do we continue to be the people on mission God has called us to be? Ministry usually involves personal contact, but we are restricted from this now, and for good reasons! The church must use every tool at her disposal to share the gospel and the hope our world needs to get through this crisis. Let's pray together as the Body of Christ that God will give us wisdom, discernment and an even greater love to carry out His mission.
If we are to have churches that make a difference in this generation, we must know what the New Testament church looks like and understand the source of its power. That's why I will be preaching through Acts in 2020 with an emphasis on the principles that make the church healthy.
Come join us as we take on the task of ministry in a fallen world. As Jesus pointed out, "The harvest is plentiful but the laborers are few. Ask the Lord of the Harvest to send out workers into His harvest field." On Sunday, June 7th, we will begin our first phase of reopening our facility for worship. We have been enjoying Drive-in Worship on Sundays, but in this first phase, Drive-in Worship moves to 9:30 AM for the hot, summer months. If you love this service, please join us then. If inclement weather threatens, the 9:30 service will move to the FLC.
At 11:00 AM we will also have a second service in our worship center. Pews are marked clearly for social distanced seating, so you don't have to worry about figuring it out on your own. Many elements of worship will change to keep us healthy, but rest assured, we want to give you the safest possible environment in which to come together as the people of God.
With a new wave of Covid-19 we will not have any Wednesday services or activities until further notice.. And, remember to pray for those who can't get out right away. Daily devotionals and the Sunday message are available on the Craig Bailey Ministries YouTube channel and Facebook. So, let's hang together through it all, trusting in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!
Blessings In Christ,
Pastor Craig Bailey
