I would like to thank everyone who has helped keep The Lord’s House moving along during these unprecedented times. It takes a great group of dedicated Followers of Christ to continue the mission and message of the Gospel.
We met as a council via Zoom and decided that our reentry into the church will be October 18th. We will be practicing social distancing and masks will be required. Cold weather is coming and we need to make the proper steps to make sure everyone is safe. As most of you know, Kids Church has resumed along with youth group; so we are starting to get back to some kind of normal. We will resume our first Sunday of the month Communion services with each person bringing their own communion elements to the worship service.
We will be having our worship services in the Youth Center with everyone bringing their own chairs and that way it will be easier as far as sanitation inside the church. It is very difficult to clean wood and cloth inside our sanctuary and having the services in the youth center just seems to make sense.
We will have Wi-Fi in the youth center (thanks to Bryan Slattery) to continue our Facebook Live services. The Lord is reaching so many people and we will continue the Facebook Live going forward. I want to thank everyone who have been faithful in continuing to give their tithes and offerings to help continue and fulfill the Great Commission.
Matthew 28: 16-20 16 But the eleven disciples proceeded to Galilee, to the mountain which Jesus had designated. 17 When they saw Him, they worshiped Him; but some were doubtful. 18 And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.
Starting this Sunday, we will be starting a sermon series on Prayer (Based on the Book “21 Days of Breakthrough Prayer: The Power of Agreement) and the main scripture throughout the series will be 2 Chronicles 7: 14-15: if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. 15 Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to prayer made in this place.
As the people of God we need to be praying our families, our community and our nation. We are at a time that we need to get serious about prayer and the time is Right Here and Right Now. We need to have a spirit of repentance (turning away from sin) and ask God to change the slippery slope that we see happening in our country today. Our Nation must turn back to God!
God Bless all of you and praise God the missions of the church are still going strong and we will see the floodgates of heaven open up as long we continue to keep our hands to the plow and not look back. (Luke 9: 62) If we follow the Lord’s direction we will not fail!
