I know the isolation is starting to weigh on some of you. I am so encouraged to hear about all the contact between our Church family. If you get bored and feel lonely reach and contact someone from Church, phone, text, email, facetime, whatever means you have!
I know the internet is getting overwhelmed! I was on a conference call this morning with a small group of business leaders and a city official forming a plan to keep our community working together and a plan for quick economic recovery. What was once a solid internet means of communicating, we did experience several drops. So, don’t get frustrated trying to video chat, you may have to phone chat.
With the business stuff out of the way! Praise God we made it through our first Live Stream Church Worship Service together! It was another challenge for us to overcome but we made it! You all knew the small group in front of the camera were feeling overwhelmed! Thank you so much for all the kind communications encouraging the Worship Team as well as myself! We will get better as we upgrade the computers and software this week to handle the output of video and audio.
Remember Thursday night at 7pm will be Live Streaming our midweek Bible Study.
Our offices are becoming the “Hub” for many things. As I am writing this update, we are setting up a link on our Church Community Builder sight for prayer requests. You can also call our office phone @ 775-461-0463 for prayer. Email or go to our website, we have servants with hearts to serve ready to pray with you.
This is a time for building community. A time for prayer and confidence in God. As the world see’s Christ’s Church loving each other they well see how a community is to live as one body working together to build each other up!
Miss you all more than I can put into words!
