DRIVE THRU COMMUNION - SUNDAY JULY 12THWe will be holding our next drive thru communion this Sunday, July 12th.
We will worship on-line at 11:00 am and then everyone is invited to drive to church between 1:00 and 2:30. There will be a few folks on hand to direct you as to where to enter the parking lot as well as where to exit.
Once you are on the campus you will be directed towards the covered portico. Please remain in your car. I will come forward to serve you communion. We are taking every precaution to ensure the communion elements are handled in a safe manner. If you still feel uncomfortable receiving elements already prepared then please feel free to bring your own from home.
Everyone is encouraged to share this worship opportunity with their friends. We welcome all! I am really looking forward to seeing your face and having a few moments with each of you!
Corona Virus Update #15 July 3, 2020
I hope this week’s update finds each of you safe and healthy!
For many months it felt as if Covid-19 was something that affected everyone but our small community. We have been blessed with very low numbers for the majority of the pandemic. Unfortunately that has recently changed. The number of active cases has almost doubled in the last few weeks. The coronavirus is a reality in our midst, and now we know folks who have not only become infected but who have also died. All of it is overwhelming.
It doesn’t help our morale that this holiday weekend will most likely look different for a lot of us. There will be no fireworks at the Bogue pier or in downtown Swansboro. Family and friends who normally visit on the 4th may choose to stay home. We may decide to stay in because of the growing crowds. These losses are small, but they did affect us. This is why I want to encourage you to continue to put your faith in God.
The more I study scripture the more I realize how often God was at work in the direst of situations. It was often impossible for the people to see it at the time, but God was there. God was faithful. God is still faithful! Such knowledge keeps me looking ahead in hope and not in despair. I pray it does the same for each of you.
In the weeks ahead let us continue to exercise our freedom by doing our part. Being mindful of social distancing and wearing a mask are such small sacrifices to make when compared to the great benefit these practices offer to others.
In closing let me share that we will be having our 2nd drive thru communion on July 12. Details will be on our web and Facebook pages. Also for the month of July we will be collecting peanut butter and jelly.
Peace and love to us all, Ben
