Church Update, Jan. 14, 2021
2020 is behind us and as we look ahead it is perhaps with a cautious sense of hope and optimism. I wonder if you, like me, expected to wake up January 1st 2021 to find all things had changed and we were all able to resume some more normal activities. But as it turns out, we are not.
The current restrictions mean that we will continue to hold our services as livestream only. Only those participating in the service, including sound and tech, are permitted in the church on Sunday mornings. This does not mean that you are not welcome to drop in at other times in the week. We have certainly enjoyed the brief visits we have had with those from our church who are looking for books from the library, dropping off donations or just stopping in to say a brief “hi.”
It has been a priority for us pastors, along with the deacons, to try to reach out to all the people of KEMC through phone calls, emails and texts in order to keep connection with each other. During this time where people may be experiencing heightened feelings of isolation, we want to be active in checking in to see how you are doing. We recognize that we may have missed some people and if you have been missed, we apologize. We will continue to try to reach out and we also want to encourage you to reach out to us if you are feeling like you need connection or a listening ear. The pastors and deacons are available and willing to talk and pray with you as you are all an important part of the KEMC family.
Remember to pray for our church, our community and those who are frontline workers such as health care workers and first responders who experience a high risk of exposure and are walking with those who are struggling at this time.
We remain optimistic that we will be able to begin in-person services again soon and look forward to seeing you all face to face in 2021.
“We ask God to give you complete knowledge of his will and to give you spiritual wisdom and understanding. Then the way you live will always honor and please the Lord, and your lives will produce every kind of good fruit. All the while, you will grow as you learn to know God better and better. We also pray that you will be strengthened with all his glorious power so you will have all the endurance and patience you need. May you be filled with joy, always thanking the Father.” (Col. 1:9-12a)
