Virtual Church – Online
Scriptures include: Psalm 23 and John 9:1-41
Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon entitled “A Sign of Hope”
In the book of John, miracles are called “signs” because they point to things beyond themselves. Jesus took the fears people had of blindness and turned it into a sign of hope for new sight. Jesus took the darkness experienced by a blind man in an ancient culture suited only for the sighted and turned it into illumination for both the man and those who would learn about the Light of the World through this moment in time. As we sit with more time on our hands in this season of social distancing, where is Jesus opening our eyes, where are we seeing light? If this feels like the dark valley described in our Psalm, how is our Shepherd guiding us through it and opening our eyes to new possibilities? We can’t always explain the mystery of God’s action through Jesus in our lives, but if we’re looking, we’ll notice it because Jesus has lit up the room for us to see.
Giving of our Resources
Please continue to give generously to the ministries of our church, even as we cannot meet in person each week. You can give online here or mail your tithes and offerings to the church office. Your gifts help us to continue to offer ministry to our church members through virtual church services, Bible studies, ministry to the community, and more.
Also – don’t forget that we are participating in the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship Offering for Global Missions in this season, too.

Pray & Give – our goal as a church is $2,000, and we have raised $1307.50 thus far. We hope to meet and exceed our gifts for CBF’s good work!
Lastly, if you are willing to pick up medications or groceries or other needed items for those who cannot get out, please let the church office know. As we assess the needs of our church and wider community, we may have a job for you! Pick ups can be done through grocery ordering, and drop offs may be done at doorsteps to continue the good practice of social distancing. Thank you!
