OUR CHILDREN’S OFFERING now helps replenish funds for Vacation Bible School. Even though we have decided to cancel our Vacation Bible School for this summer, we still had already purchased quite a lot of the supplies needed. Since we cannot use them this summer, we will use the same program and supplies for the next summer. Hopefully when this outbreak is all over, we can come up with something fun to do for the kids, even if it is just for the day.
PRAYER MEETING UPDATE: Prayer meeting will now be met on Turbobridge on your own phone! We will still meet on Wednesday nights at 7:30pm. To do this follow these steps from Pastor Maylan:
1. Call this toll-free number: 1-800-309-2350.
2. A woman’s very classy British voice will welcome you to Turbobridge, and will ask you to “Enter your conference ID and press pound (#).” That number, which is the same every night, is 8804901 and then #.
You may hear people chatting if you join the line a few minutes early, then at 7:30 I’ll welcome people and we’ll get started. We’ll invite you to share one at a time what’s been going on during this unexpected time that’s kept us apart, and welcome prayer requests and also what you want to thank the Lord for. We will ask you to “mute” your phone when it’s not your turn to talk, to prevent a lot of miscellaneous noise and feedback. To mute your phone, push the star key (*), then the number 6 (or just use the “mute” button on your phone’s handset).
Then we’ll pray—everyone who would like to offer a prayer may do so, but no one needs to feel pressured to participate out loud. We’ll all be united in prayer, whether we listen or speak. The most important thing is that we’ll be coming to the Lord, together. -Pastor Maylan and Shelley
