Other things are constantly vying for our attention, things for instance in the news and on social media. They attempt to take our focus off of Christ. As we journey through the book of Colossians, I pray that you are growing in your love and awe of Christ. The more we grow in Christ and keep Him central, the more we will be able to identify other philosophies that are attempting to thwart our focus.
This coming Sunday, we will be looking at Colossians 3:1-17. In this passage, the apostle Paul starts getting into what it looks like when Christ is central in our lives. After the service, we have the privilege of participating in The Lord’s Supper together. This time, we’re going to do it a little differently. We now have prepackaged communion elements. So, after the online service, we will be inviting you to participate in a drive-through communion service. It will be a fun and meaningful way to participate with one another during this time. During the service Sunday, more details will be shared.
As many of you know, we are currently in phase 1 of our state’s reopening plan. In the next week, we expect our state (and county) to make an announcement regarding when we will enter phase 2 (which would allow gatherings of up to 50). If they decide that will start sometime next week (as we anticipate), then we are planning on holding an in-person worship service again on Sunday, May 31. We also are working on setting up the capabilities to live stream the service from the sanctuary (for those who feel vulnerable or unwell). In my short, 6-minute video, I give an overview of what this will look like.

If the Fellowship Hall is finished during phase 2, we plan on us being able to be at church together, but in different buildings. Until then, we will do whatever it takes to give everyone the opportunity to worship together in person at the church.
I look forward to worshipping with you soon and rejoicing in all the things God has done and continues to do as we journey through this crisis.
For His Glory, Pastor Eric
