Pastor’s weekly newsletter | 3-27-2020
Good Friday morning everyone,
Hear these amazing words from Isaiah 41: “Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my powerful right hand.” Who is on the right hand of God? Jesus Christ! Luke and Paul tell us that Jesus is at the right hand of God. This is an amazing promise to everyone of us that Jesus himself will strengthen us and hold us up.
Last week, I shared some ways you can pray for this virus. Today, I want to share with you a few ways that you can help others through this crisis. As you know, we are an active supporter of FKOC, Florida Keys Outreach Coalition and they are on the front lines of helping our community. You can purchase gift cards at grocery stores in $25 amounts which can help people purchase food or assist with shelter. You can donate money by sending a check to FKOC, P.O. Box 4767, Key West, Florida, 33040. You can also donate food. Please call 305-293-8189 to find out the best kinds of food to purchase and where to drop them off. Thank you!
Our services are still suspended pending further guidance both from the CDC and Tropical Florida Presbytery. We will keep you up to date on any changes going forward. I have been in contact with several elderly church members and so far, everyone is safe and in good health. I hope you are as well!
This Sunday I will conclude my sermon series on What Christians Believe by taking a close look at a phrase in the Apostle’s Creed which states, we believe in the resurrection of the body. Now, this is a subject we pastors rarely preach about. Do we really want the body we have today to be resurrected? What is Paul talking about? What about all the ashes spread in the oceans? How is it possible to have the body we are in today resurrected? Well, Paul has all the answers and we discover the glorious truths about the resurrection of the body. I will be wearing my robe this Sunday as the purple stole I have is simply beautiful.
Next Sunday is Palm Sunday and I don’t want us to miss communion so I will be leading communion via video and I encourage you to have bread and grape juice or wine ready to celebrate our Lord’s great sacrifice for us.
Please don’t hesitate to let me know if there is anything I can do for you. Text me or call me at 310-745-7751. I am here for you.
Have a safe and blessed weekend,
