We-Mail from Pastor Mark

Dear Friends,

I am sorry to have missed anyone who tried to dial in to our Zoom Vesper service last evening. Something I ate earlier wasn’t agreeing with me and I forgot to log in. I apologize. We will try again next week at 6:30 p.m. to broadcast again via Zoom but the door will be open for those who would like to attend in person. A vesper service is generally 30-45 minutes, it offers prayer, praise and a short biblical thought/homily. I would love for you to participate via zoom or in person. It will be the season of Lent beginning on Wednesday, February 17th and this could be a good practice for our spiritual journey.

Good news from the St. Charles Health Department, the seven day positivity rate has fallen below 20% and vaccinations are being given to residents 65 or older. I encourage all of us to go on line to register at: https://www.sccmo.org/2162/COVID-19-Vaccine-Information. Click on this link and it will take you to the information page and registration link. The sooner we are vaccinated and beyond the infectious spread of COVID19 the sooner we can enjoy being together in worship, bible studies and the activities of church life.

This coming Sunday will offer worship at 9 a.m. but the door is open to those who would like to attend in person. Please wear a mask and know that seating will be six feet apart. I am so excited that we have turned that corner. We will offer two live services beginning Sunday, February 14th.  Traditional worship at 9 a.m. and Modern at 10:30 a.m. in the CLC. It will feel so good to be together in worship.

News from our Church Council, we have agreed to upgrade our internet provider to Spectrum Fiber Optics which will greatly improve our online worship service. What you will see and hear over the internet will be tremendous. The installation date is 60 days away but soon enough, you will notice a great improvement of our online worship service.

My prayers are with you all. There are a few who have battled the COVID19 infection and were hospitalized while others quarantined at home. Please stay safe and use all the precautions of wearing a mask, social distancing and washing your hands often so that you will remain healthy. Soon and very soon, God willing, we will be together in worship and able to socialize safely.

God bless us every one, Pastor Mark
