Hello Beloved Community
Happy New Year… I hope is will be anyway. The phrase “subject to change” seems to be the most important phrase when planning for any event during this pandemic. While we were considering the Christmas Eve parking lot service, we did not take in consideration that the Berger parking lot would still be under construction so on December 15th, we made the church decision not to hold the service outdoors in the parking lot. We would instead stick to online and radio and make DVDs of the service to deliver to our people. This was the best we could do under the circumstances. It breaks my heart that the people of God have not been able to meet together in one accord to worship our Lord for the past 9 months, but it is what it is for now anyway. It also looks like as we begin the New Year and making our new year’s resolutions, we will definitely have to throw in that familiar phrase, “subject to change.” Thank goodness our Lord never changes. The scripture tells us that “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever,” Hebrew 13:8. Therefore, let me encourage each of us to hang on to the promises found in God’s word. No matter how uncertain this world may be around us, we can be secure in our faith in God. He has brought us through 2020, and he will bring us through 2021 as well. If you need anything, please call. The church may or may not be able to assist you, but we can and will always pray for you. Happy New Year, Blessings and Peace.

A new weekly zoom Bible study will begin in mid-January, and also we will be launching a new in-person Bible study around the same time. We are looking at 1st and 2nd Timothy.
