set sail with hope
Dear members and friends,
We hope this letter finds you well as we continue to navigate the waters of change during this global pandemic. If the past months have taught us anything, it is that life and relationships are precious and God will lead us through these unpredictable times, if we let God steer us.
During 2020, we have seen our church change in many ways. Worship was conducted online in an intimate study setting that attracted many people who did not or could not worship with us in person before. Some programs were adapted to virtual participation, others had to be put on hold, and new interactive ones emerged, such as Real Talk. While physical contact with members was limited, our spiritual connection and member care remained strong and grew even more intentional. What has not changed over the last months was our faithfulness to God, our dedication to serve people in need in our community, our reaffirmation to stand with marginalized populations, and our commitment to social justice issues.
As we set sail towards 2021, we do so with hope. We may continue to find ourselves in unchartered waters, but by harnessing the power of the wind rather than rowing against it, we are taking our lead from God and allowing ourselves to be open to change. As the Holy Spirit fills our sails, we are free to listen, try new things, and serve the needs of the moment.
Sail with us into a hopeful 2021. We’d love to have you on board.
Peace and Grace,
