COVID-19 Update

 

A Letter from the Pastor...

 

All in-person gatherings and meetings have been canceled until further notice. Join us online Sundays at 11:00 AM via Zoom or telephone call: https://zoom.us/j/3119782157 Meeting ID: 311 978 2157 or +1 646 558 8656. Password: 0000

We are evaluating this very changing situation every two weeks. It is not a sign of faith to meet despite the recommendations of medical experts, but it is a sign of love to practice social distancing during this time.

Ecclesiastes 3 talks about there being a time for everything and a season for every activity under the heavens. Our hearts desire us to be doing other things but now is not the time. This does not mean inactivity. There is a lot that you can do. Especially during this time of Lent, feast on the spiritual practices. Learn about yourself during this time of isolation. Practice praying for more than a couple of minutes. Read and study the Holy Scriptures. Keep a journal. Write letters of encouragement to those community helpers on the front lines of this pandemic.

Above all, do no harm; do good, and stay in love with God.

In love and solidarity,

Pastor Carlos
