Pastor’s Message – March 31, 2020

What We Need to Know

I am so thankful for the ways we are being the church even though we are not able to gather in the church building. There are so many good, creative ideas blossoming in this desert time, and I give thanks for your ingenuity!

Out of an abundance of caution and in accordance with the federal recommendations, all in-person activities at the church are cancelled until April 30, at which time we will reevaluate. We will continue to offer worship on Facebook Live and on the radio and other safe opportunities for you to connect from a distance. Read this whole newsletter as I can’t fit all those opportunities onto one

* Staying Home: As much as we would love to see you, we love you enough to say, “stay home,” during this pandemic. We ask that you not come inside the church building so as to protect yourself and others. The church office will be open for the next two weeks from 9AM until 12PM if you need to call us.

* Facebook Live: Keep in mind that Facebook Live is sometimes overwhelmed on Sunday mornings with so many churches depending on it during the worship hour. This can lead to a shaky video or delayed sound. If you have trouble watching, remember that the video will be available later in the day, and you can watch at any

* Bulletin: If you would like a hard copy of the bulletin mailed to you, please let Julie know by calling 662-494-1658 or emailing us at

Finally, and most importantly, remember these words of our Lord Jesus Christ in John 16:33: “In the world you face persecution. But take courage; I have conquered the world!”

all good things to each of you,
Dr. Darian
