Dear Faith Community and friends;

As people of faith we understand the sovereignty of God and God’s will for all people to live life and live it abundantly. We also understand that we have been charged as caretakers for all God has given us. That means each other as well. I give thanks to God for all of you. I want nothing more than for you to know God’s real and tangible presence and for us to be together again.

For those who cannot attend worship virtually, I regret that I feel we must again close our doors. I hope you get this message before you make the drive to the church. If you do not get this, then you probably did not receive the alert sent out by Bexar county urging everyone to stay home.

We have two members of our faith community who have tested positive for the COVID-19 virus. Neither of them worshipped in the congregation last Sunday nor have been on campus for the last two weeks. Please pray for them, their families and anyone they may have come in contact with recently.

We will continue to livestream the Traditional service at 9:00 and the Praise service at 11:00. Keep your worship team in your prayers. DVD’s are available to anyone, but especially to those who may not have a way to watch the livestreams.

The Psalm appointed for tomorrow is psalm 13. I encourage you to read it as a prayer. I have included a copy from “The Message”

1-2 Long enough, God—
you’ve ignored me long enough.
I’ve looked at the back of your head
long enough. Long enough
I’ve carried this ton of trouble,
lived with a stomach full of pain.
Long enough my arrogant enemies
have looked down their noses at me.

3-4 Take a good look at me, God, my God;
I want to look life in the eye,
So no enemy can get the best of me
or laugh when I fall on my face.

5-6 I’ve thrown myself headlong into your arms—
I’m celebrating your rescue.
I’m singing at the top of my lungs,
I’m so full of answered prayers.

Until we are together again, keep singing songs of praise and joy as we all rest in the arms of the Lord.

God’s peace, Jim
