Pastor's Letter

May 13, 2021

 “…the joy of the Lord is your strength.” (Nehemiah 8:10)

 Dear Church Family,

 I begin this letter by letting you know that as the Colonial Pipeline suffered a cyberattack (hack) which affected the purchasing of gas in many states on the east coast of this country, hacks happen on a smaller scale. Last week some of you received a communication pertaining to investments. Though it had my letterhead on it, IT DID NOT COME FROM ME!

We live in a time that people (those who are up to no good) will use different methods to participate in wrongdoing. I am so glad that if you received that communication, that you were able to read and immediately recognize that it did not come from me. I believe that as you read, you imagined how the words sounded, as if the words were spoken by me, in your hearing directly. I thank you for recognizing and determining that that particular letter was not mine. Also, the email address from that communication was different from mine, similar but not exact.

I am thankful for the men who came out on last Saturday to spruce up the grounds around the church building. They removed debris, cleaned the sidewalks, and planted different colorful flowers around the church. It really looks good! Again, thanks are given to the men who took time out of their schedule to beautify our grounds. Thank you, Greg Rush for your leadership.

Though we are not in the building, our ministries continue. On Sunday, we will celebrate with our Health League Ministry, their 81st anniversary. I am grateful for the work that the ministry provides to the membership of our church. Thank you, Debra Airhart for your leadership.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, the leadership team of Beth Eden has been meeting to determine the steps that must be made in preparation for our reentry into the sanctuary. We are looking at the second Sunday in September, which is our Homecoming Day, to reenter the church building. Homecoming Day is September 12, 2021! Mark your calendars.

Most of you, if not all of you should have received a survey regarding the vaccination. Please take a few moments and respond to the survey. It is important that as a church, we do our absolute best to ensure a safe reentry.

The statistics are showing that the Covid-19 deaths are lowering, as well as the number of persons contacting the virus. And with people getting vaccinated, continuing to wear masks, practicing social distancing, and washing hands, we can certainly look forward to the day of worshipping in the sanctuary once again.

You are encouraged to participate in the study of God’s word through Sunday School lessons on Saturday and Sunday. For information regarding the times for Saturday and Sunday lessons, please call church office. On Wednesday at Noon and 7:30 p.m., we study God’s word. In addition, we have our live Zoom worship service on Sunday at 9:00 A.M. For those who miss being in the sanctuary, we have our Facebook/ YouTube tapings on Wednesdays at 4 P.M. This taping is for our ministries on Sundays starting at 11 A.M.

PUT ON A SMILE: A nun who works for a local home health care agency was out making her rounds when she ran out of gas. As luck would have it there was a station just down the street. She walked to the station to borrow a can with enough gas to start the car and drive to the station for a fill up. The attendant regretfully told her that the only can he owned had just been loaned out, but if she would care to wait, he was sure it would be back shortly.

Since the nun was on the way to see a patient, she decided not to wait and walked back to her car. After looking through her car for something to carry to the station to fill with gas, she spotted a bedpan she was taking to the patient. Always resourceful, she carried it to the station, filled it with gasoline, and carried it back to her car.

As she was pouring the gas into the tank of her car two men walked by. One of them turned to the other and said: "Now that is what I call faith!"

"Eye hath not seen, nor ear hear, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him."

1 Corinthians 2:9

"A body is made up of many parts, and each of them has its own use.  That's how it is with us.  There are many of us, but we each are part of the body of Christ, as well as part of one another."

Romans 12:4-5 (CEV)
