Dear Members, Visitors, and Friends of the Congregation,

            Please watch your mail for a letter outlining our Holy Week and Easter schedule. We hope and pray that by that point more and more will feel comfortable with in-person worship.

            We know, however, that it may be June or July before we have the attendance we had before the coronavirus changed how we live and work and worship. And so, in order to reach more people and give a better sense of being part of Sunday worship, we will soon be live-streaming the service. The plan is to have it up and running by Easter (we will also continue with the videos for those who cannot access the live stream). We’ll let you know when we’re ready to go.

            The attached prayer, which I will pray during our Mid-week Lenten Service this evening at 7:00 PM, is a rambling reaction to the morning news one day last week. As always, I can only hope that it speaks to you in some way during this season of Lent as we seek to return to the Lord, return to what we should be.

            May God give us the sense to keep doing what we should to protect others and ourselves until more and more are vaccinated and it is safer to gather with others,

Pastor Halenza
