Established May 1899--May 2020
Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. I pray that all is well with you as you continue to seek the shelter of God’s protection from this menacing pandemic. Hopefully, by God’s grace and mercy, we will be able to gather together again soon under one roof as a family in God.
During our time apart, we have been coming together virtually to offer our prayers and sing our praises to our most gracious God. We have prayed with and for each other, and God knows that we long to physically worship and fellowship with one another under one roof when it is clinically safe to do so.
During this period we have found ourselves in the highly technological world of audio and visual communication. Trust me, the learning curve is steep, but we are tireless and determined in our efforts to be a community of faith that stays connected by whatever medium is available to us. I ask for your patience as we glitch our way to competence in the process, knowing that our gracious God does not number our shortfalls, but celebrates our efforts of love and service to him and our neighbors.
I am taking this opportunity to thank you for being a critical and appreciated part of our community of faith that virtually gathers on Sundays and Wednesdays to worship our God. There is nothing as assuring as knowing that we are numbered among the imperfect saints of God here on earth who are walking in the Light of Christ. Let us remain prayerful and committed to God’s call to us.
May God bless and keep us together while we are apart, one from another.
Yours in Christ,
The Reverend Carver W. Israel
