Hello, church family!
First off, let me say thank you again on behalf of so many of our leaders in your attention to our posts and emails. It’s not at all lost on us how much these are going out, and we thank the Lord for your grace and patience with us.
As you have probably seen by now in a previous email to you, as well as our most updated web post, we will not be meeting for a while. But, we do have a plan in place for resuming in-person gatherings!
This week is our second of two sermons in our mini-series, Prioritize Unity, with this week’s service being provided to us by our brothers and sisters of Redemption Gilbert. Here’s the direct link for Sunday’s sermon. We encourage you to watch it with your families and in your Redemption Communities as you’re able to get together.
And, you’ll also find today’s entire liturgy here, which will provide some instruction for you as you gather together throughout the day/week in small numbers. You’ll find scripture readings, prayers, and the R|Gilbert service link (sermon & songs) as well…plus a bit more.
We’ve got resources for your family, too. Watch this short video from our R|Kids Director, Summer Wahlstrom, which will contain a wealth of resources in the video’s description box. Also, see this week’s Story Time, Parent Pack, and Coloring Page.
Finally, we encourage you the same way we have always tried to: please be the church. Let’s do what the church always does. Let’s live all of life in such a way that it would indicate to any and everyone that it’s always, always, always all about Jesus.
We love you all. We’re praying for you and those around you. We’re thanking the Lord for His sovereignty and unending care for us. We can’t wait to see what He does during these current times, and we already long and will even appreciate more the next time we all gather together.
Be well, friends. And please let us know if you need help during this time, know someone who needs help, or want to join the efforts to help others!
Grace and peace to you all.
