A Message From The Rev. Douglas T. King
Dear Friends in Christ,
In the book of Esther, the Jewish people are facing a grave threat. In order for them to be saved, Queen Esther must intervene. Her cousin Mordecai urges her to take action to ensure the well-being of her people. The phrase he uses to encourage her to act is “for such a time as this…” This phrase has often been invoked by people of faith to respond to care for others in times of crisis. We continue to be grateful for your support of each other and the church during this time. Please see our need for volunteers later in this email.
We look forward to joining you via livestream this Sunday. We are blessed to have student minister Jacob Kennedy preaching. As with our service last Sunday, we needed to record segments of this service at different times in different places. Please join us this Sunday by clicking HERE
. Please join us after the service for a livestream chat by clicking the “comment” button at the top right of the livestream.
If you can help, we need you. If you would like to volunteer, please email Chanel Robertson, Interim Coordinator for Mission and Ministries, at firstname.lastname@example.org
. If you need help, please email me at email@example.com
and we will be in touch with you.
We are grateful for the church and school leaders and staff who are working hard to sustain our efforts in this time. We are also deeply grateful to those who are sending contributions to help the church financially while we worship in a virtual space. Your gifts help to sustain our church and our mission partners, who are so busy in this time of crisis. If you would like to provide your offering, please click HERE.
Please keep those affected by this situation around the world in your prayers. As in all times, we put our trust in Jesus Christ and are grateful that we have been called together into this community of faith. As always, please contact me with any concerns or questions you may have.
Grace and Peace,
The Rev. Douglas T. King
Senior Associate Minister, Acting Head of Staff
