Dear Friends, We had a good time at our “Party in the Parking Lot” last evening. When the day started it was foggy and wet but by 3:30 p.m., the sun was out and beautiful. No Strings Attached sang for about one hour and the food from Dukes BarBQ was tasty. Some of the attendees brought their own dinner and others enjoyed box dinners. It was a good night and everyone got to visit safely while wearing masks. Our next outing is Sunday, September 20th at 4:30 p.m. James Farquhar will serenade us on his cello accompanied by Mary Kate Barnes on the piano. It’s an open-air concert under the pavilion. You can bring a blanket or lawn chair and enjoy great music. No dinner will be offered but popcorn and beverages will be available. (bottled water and cans of soda)

Our Heritage Back Packs are returning with delivery on Monday mornings because of the split schedules at WSD. We have youth and their parents packing but need adults to deliver Monday mornings. If you’re ready and able one week a month, please contact Jean St. Clair or the church office. You are a great volunteer!

This Sunday we’re looking at Romans 14:1-12. The Apostle Paul is speaking to an issue that remains with us to this day, “How do we live in a secular society and follow God’s instructions?” It wasn’t easy then and it’s not any better today, maybe harder. I look forward to sharing this conundrum on Sunday morning. There are many potholes in life especially now with COVID19. Stay safe, wear your mask, and keep socially distant in public. If you need help, call. There is folk who are willing to help. If you’re feeling depressed or desperate, contact the church office and we’ll talk or find the help you need. You are loved and keeping in touch is important. We are doing our best to stay in touch so reach out if you feel isolated. There are friends, brothers, and sisters in Christ who will walk with you.

God bless us every one, Pastor Mark
