May we hold one another in thought and prayers. May we reach out and encourage each other. May we be lead to find new and creative ways to serve those around us. May we smile at the stranger who walks past our house and wave a greeting to one another while donning a mask.

Our mantra for the current crisis:

  • Keep the Faith. Focus on God and His Eternal Word in times of fear and uncertainty.
  • Stay Connected. Be intentional about reaching out to check on others, and allowing them to check on you.
  • Shine Your Light. Look for small acts of kindness and expect God to do great acts of faithfulness.
