The Secret Place

He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; my God, in Him I will trust.” Psalm 91: 1-2

A Call to Prayer | Prayer Resources

Highlights from Pastor’s Message:

What greater thing can we do than to offer prayer?

How should we pray?

1. For God’s Will be Done. (Matthew 6:10)

2. For Peace. (1 Peter 5:7)

3. Bind fear and loose love to prevail. (2 Timothy 1:7)

 

We have a promise that He will hear our prayers.

“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14

Ask someone, “How can I pray for you?”

Pray for deliverence and peace. Reach out in prayer: to your teams, small groups, friends, family, and neighbors.

“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.” Eph 6:10

 

A Letter from Our Pastor

Friday, March 13, 2020

Due to the ongoing concern about the spread of COVID-19, (coronavirus), I write to offer direction as it relates to our local faith community.

First and foremost, God is in control.  Absolutely nothing catches Him by surprise.  There is no cause for panic.  Declare His Word:

“My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth! The Lord himself watches over you! The Lord stands beside you as your protective shade. The Lord keeps watch over you as you come and go, both now and forever.” Psalms 121:2, 5, 8 NLT

“For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.” 2 Timothy 1:7 NLT

Secondly, it is important to pray.  Let us agree in prayer regarding the following things:

1. Divine protection and healing for all people and especially for those in our church family.
2. Wisdom for all leaders to take appropriate action for our safety and security yet not giving reason for panic.
3. His Kingdom to come in our nation and church spiritually and economically.
4. Opportunities to share God’s peace, healing, and salvation.

Finally, I believe it is prudent to exercise caution in view of the current circumstances.

Last week, Governor Hogan issued prohibitions in order to mitigate the further spread of the virus.  In addition to closing public schools for the next two weeks, he cited the following that relates to our local church:  “Effective immediately, gatherings of more than 250 people, including social, community, spiritual, religious, recreational, leisure, and sporting gatherings, are prohibited at all locations and venues.”

While we could fall under the numerical threshold, the Governor has recommended these guidelines to all. We will be in communication once we have determined how we will operate going forward.

You will receive more communication as to our plan to stay connected in faith and love as updates from our government officials are released, but for the present please:

  • Use this time to rest and renew your spirit.  Feed yourself with wholesome things.
  • Be mindful of one another in communication, prayer and support.
  • Remain faithful in your giving of finances unto the Lord.  You may give online here.

“Wait on the LORD; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the LORD!” Psalms 27:14 NKJV
