"This Week" with Pastor Frank... August 12, 2020

Dear Friends,

Greetings in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ!  This past week we started a sermon series on the General Rules of the Methodist Societies, put in place in the early days of the Methodist movement.  They are:

First, Do No Harm; 

Second, Do All the Good You Can...; and 

Third, Attend to the Ordinances of God.  

We looked at the first one last week and found that doing no harm can reach deeper than you might expect.  Doing all the good you can will be the sermon this week, and we will use Matthew 15l: 1-28 as a text.  We will continue to livestream on Facebook Sunday at 10 am.  

This past week we had a wonderful update on the Rising from the Water Capital Campaign by Ken and Daralyn Schubert.  Thank you all for continuing to make this new Sanctuary possible!

This Sunday we will again have limited in-person attendance at our worship services starting this week.  We will limit attendance to  50, and ask that you call the church to let us know you are coming.  We will have masks and hand sanitizer, but ask that you bring your own if you have them.  

Music will continue to be recorded for the most part.  There is not enough room for adequate social distancing on the platform in the CFC for our Praise Band.  Many thanks to George Wilkinson for patching together the recordings of music and Christen Thibodeaux's message for the children each week.  Thanks to George and Cathy for all they do have the blend of live announcements, prayer and preaching with the recorded elements in the single livestream broadcast.  The services remain online if you missed any.  

Friends, God is still with us.  We delayed once more opening for safety concerns for all.  This pandemic is here for a while, apparently, and we will make do with what we have.  We invite you to worship our Lord as you can, where you are, because where two or more are gathered we are in the presence of Christ.  

Please pray for all going back to school.   

Faithfully in Jesus Christ,

Pastor Frank
