Here are some more responses about what you’ve learned during this time and areas in which your appreciation has grown. Thanks to all who have shared. It is a breath of fresh air to hear from each one of you and it has lessened the distance that currently separates us.


  • The most important thing I’ve learned is a reminder that God is faithful. Life slowing down has given me the opportunity to take in the faithfulness of God in His creation and in my life. Every day is a gift and I’m thankful for the Giver who makes it possible. I think of the words of one of my favorite songs, Great is Thy Faithfulness. ‘Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow. Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside.’


  • I am realizing how much encouragement we receive from attending and fellowshipping at our services. I do miss them very much! (Anthony)


  • 1. Thing we learned the most: How much we take for granted (see our family, church family, job, just being able to go to the store).

       2. Appreciation: Time with each other (reconnecting by playing games, puzzles, sharing             daily readings and discussions). (Cathy Parker)


  • How do we continue to encourage one another in these unknown times? We must trust that God is in control and He loves His people and the world. Being in the hospital I've seen the hard work that doctors, nurses and other staff are doing for the well-being of those with the virus . . . I have an opportunity to say a kind word, thank them for their hard work . . . This too will pass as many other valleys in our lives and the hilltop is just around the corner. As an elder . . . I want to encourage each of you to keep your eye on Jesus, continue to love one another, and hopefully we will be back together again soon. (Mark)

I will sing of the Lord's great love forever;

with my mouth I will make your faithfulness known through all generations.

I will declare that your love stands firm forever,

that you have established your faithfulness in heaven itself. (Psalm 89:1-2)
