For all of the above, you may use or print the attached Sunday bulletin. I encourage you to participate in the fellowship and communion of our church and the Body of Christ from your home, as you are able.
I invite you to use your wisdom and prudence for your decisions, and I encourage you in all things to have faith in Jesus, his work on the cross and in the resurrection, in everything you do and think. And this is a time to do our best to Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances. (1 Thess 5:16-18) We have plenty of reasons to rejoice, to pray and to give thanks.
