Praise the Lord! I hope you have found different opportunities to Praise the Lord! The Book of Psalms closes with the following:
Praise the Lord.
Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens. Praise him for his acts of power; praise him for his surpassing greatness. Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet, praise him with the harp and lyre, praise him with timbrel and dancing, praise him with the strings and pipe, praise him with the clash of cymbals, praise him with resounding cymbals.
Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.
Praise the Lord.
During this time of COVID-19 we have been able to find different and unique ways to worship and praise our God! One of the awesome parts of being the Body of Christ is that we can worship and praise God together. I am thankful that we have been able to do this via the internet.
I will admit that I want more. I want more people together. I want more time to praise. I want more time in God’s word with you all. I suspect many of us feel the same. We want to be able to gather together more often with more of us. Beginning next Wednesday, September 2 2020 we will be having a Midweek Outdoor Service.
This service is open to anyone. If you come please bring a chair or blanket with you. We will need to make sure that we continue to adhere to the social distancing and mask wearing guidelines. This will be an informal service that I pray blesses all of us and those to come.
I am going to ask for some help! We have been blessed with access to a large tent for this new service. To get the tent set up I need 5 people who would be willing to help with the labor on Tuesday. If you are able to help please let me know as soon as you can!
I am excited to see what God our Father, Jesus our Savior and the Holy Spirit will do as we find another new, yet old, way to worship Him!
