Dear Church Family,
On this last week of May, I am grateful to write this letter to you. All of us have been affected in one way or another regarding Covid-19. We have had challenges, or someone near and dear to us have had challenges. Job loss, food shortage, children at home, layoffs, furloughs, and just not being able to share face to face has been difficult. Yet, we are here!!! Praise the Lord!
I am grateful that the Northeast region of Illinois will be entering phase 4 of our state reopening. It is still so important to wear masks, gloves, and other protective clothing. It is important to wash our hands thoroughly, and to use the hand sanitizers, and the disinfectant wipes.
We are learning how to Zoom, and how to use other technological platforms. I don’t know about you, but I am grateful to learn something new each day.
On next Sunday, we as a church will celebrate our 129th anniversary! We will celebrate by having a parade in our Morgan Park community. We will depart from our church parking lot at 2:00 P.M., and will ride in the neighborhood with horns, balloons, banners, and signs, just to let it be known that the Beth Eden Baptist Church is alive and well!
I ask that you continue in your support of our ministry. We have stewardship responsibilities, and it is by your giving that we maintain our obligations. I thank God for you and what you do for our church. Believe me, it is not taken for granted.
As I end this letter, please know that I am honored to be your Pastor, and that as we hold to God’s unchanging hand, God will see us through.
I love you! I really, really do!
Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. 1st Corinthians 2:9
