Dear Members, Visitors, and Friends of the Congregation,

          We had a glorious Easter morning worship service with 78 in attendance, many of whom stayed for coffee and donuts and enjoyed some time together. This past Sunday, 36 were in attendance and we expect that number to gradually increase as most of our members are now vaccinated. We will, however, continue to wear masks and practice social distancing until we are well clear of the virus. Please note that we are both live-streaming and doing videos of our Sunday services. Check your email for access codes.

          With regard to when we will resume all activities, the Church Council recommends that we evaluate that around the first of June when we should know if any new waves pose a threat. So please hang in there – it won’t be long now!

          The attached prayer, which I will pray during our Conference Call tonight, April 14, at 7:00 PM, came about from being struck by something I read. It just brought a lot of things together for me. Whether or not it will do that for you, I can’t say. As always, I can only hope that the prayer speaks to or for you in some way or at least gets you started with a prayer of your own.

          May God continue to grace our days with hope and laughter and the faith that trusts that all shall be well,

Pastor Halenza
