Dear Member,

We continue to honor the restrictions imposed due to the coronavirus and thus there will be no worship service tonight, March 25, nor this Sunday, March 29. All other activities, including Bible Study remain on hold. We will update you next week concerning Palm Sunday, Holy Week and Easter. I have attached the Lenten prayer I was going to pray tonight. Once again, please keep in mind that I composed this prayer six weeks ago when I did my preparation for Lent and so it doesn’t speak directly to the crisis we face. On the other hand, given the stress and frustration and even anger many people are feeling, perhaps tonight’s prayer will speak to you or others in some way. I hope so.

Finally, I wanted to let you know I have spoken with or been in touch with nearly every member of the congregation and to date not one has contracted the virus and for that I am very thankful. But many others beyond the congregation have, and so please continue to pray for all who are ill in our community and state and around the world.

God be with you and see you soon!

Pastor Halenza
