Monthly Newsletter for August, 2020  

Greetings from Pastor Arlene

Dear Parents, Kids & Teachers,

Finally! The news we've all been waiting for is here. I am excited as the staff and the consistory prepare for our church to regather soon. In children's ministry, we're getting ready for the new school year starting in September. Most likely, we'll continue to offer Zoom Sunday School classes while also relaunching in-person Sunday School at FEC. I will send you all an update again on what will happen in the Sunday School ministry by the end of the month.

I want to encourage you to prepare for this transition with a Bible verse that caught my eye from the Sunday School lesson 2 weeks ago. In summary of Philip's powerful evangelistic ministry of healings and miracles in Samaria, the verse says, "So there was great joy in the city." (Acts 8:8)

As I meditated on the passage, the Holy Spirit clearly impressed on me about the source of this joy and the impact it can have on the Christian believer's life. To NOT become debilitated by the circumstances around us, we need the joy of the Lord, which is our strength. (Nehemiah 8:10) And this joy comes from being transformed by the power of the Holy Spirit.

My prayer for all of you in this last little strech before we meet soon is this: "May the joy of the Lord be your strength daily as you make the conscious choice to let the power of the Holy Spirit become alive in your life.

Do not conform to the pattern of this world,
but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.
Romans 12:2

It's simple. Just say yes to the Lord whenever you feel His gentle nudge or hear His soft whisper.

 

Grace & truth,

Pastor Arlene
