Message from Pastors Rod & Colleen
We have never known a worldwide situation like we have today. Covid-19 has gripped us all with fear to some extent; whether it’s losing our jobs, our homes, our loved ones and even our own lives.
One place we can go to to bring comfort is God’s Word, in particular, the Psalms.
David, who wrote most of the Psalms, on many occasions found himself in major crisis and fighting for his life. Where did he turn? It’s the same place we need to turn to, which is to God Himself, who is above all things. Psalm 46 reminds us that “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore WE WILL NOT FEAR, though the earth give way, mountains fall into the sea, waters roar, mountains quake. There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God the holy place where the Most High dwell. God is within her, she will not fall.” The Psalm finishes with “The Lord Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress”. Fear will cause us to look to our circumstances but faith will cause us to look to God.
God is not limited by our limitations. At times like this we will see what God can do. In our weakness He becomes our strength. Just because we have to do things differently doesn't mean we lower our expectations.
We recognize that our worship does not stop because we can no longer physically meet together. Let it continue in our homes, in caring for each other through phone calls and text messages, and in making sure our seniors and those who are most vulnerable are being looked after.
We also want to provide the opportunity for giving online as we continue to worship through our giving.
Our VisionTo be a church doing the will of God in the earth, His way by His enabling.
