March 28 Update from St. Paul

Beloved of the Lord,
Sunday morning  we will be live at 8:00am and then anytime after that the service will be available to you, on-demand. Visit www.spvc.org to begin viewing. DVD’s are available. Please email christine.cox@spvc.org to request one.
 
BIBLE STUDY: I plan to hold an on-line Bible Study at about 9:30am on Sunday. You can join in live or view it the same as our worship services.
To join in from your computer or other device follow this link:
https://zoom.us/j/3881486941
That will take you to “Zoom”, an online meeting platform. It’ll ask you to install a small app and then you’ll be able to join the meeting or enter a “waiting room.”
 
ANNOUNCEMENTS: Please download the bulletin and read the announcments.
 
PICTORAL DIRECTORY: This has been postponed until Lifetouch (the photographers) are back up and running. Likely, the fall.
 
WHEN WILL WE RESUME IN-PERSON WORSHIP? As of this message, we honestly do not know when it will be appropriate and safe to resume in-person worship. We had hoped for Palm Sunday, but the current “stay at home” order prevents that. The most important thing is that we resume worship when the pandemic has reached a point that it is appropriate and safe. I’m sure we are growing fatigued of all the adjustments we’ve had to make. Now is when we need act in love for our neighbor and remain steadfast in our commitment to slow the spread and severity of COVID-19. I’m as eager as anyone to get back to normal.
 
PRAYER REQUESTS can be sent to prayer@spvc.org. Also, email there to join the prayer chain and receive all the updates.
Among the many requests for prayers involving the virus situation, please remember the workers, owners, and managers of businesses that are facing lay-offs. These are difficult decisions to make and hearbreaking news to receive. May the Lord grant a swift return to work for everyone.
 
May God grant you a restful night. Awaken tomorrow ready to worhsip together and receive God’s gifts as He remains generous during these difficult days.
 
In Christ,
Pastor Zielinski
