All of that is true – for the youngest and eldest of us.
But here in Church “business” goes on; weddings, memorial services, planning for Fall, Baptisms, visits and more. Additionally, there are ongoing bills to be paid.
All of this to say how important your pledge payments and gifts to us are even in this summertime. Your quarterly statements are on the way to you; take a look and continue to support all our work towards building God’s Kingdom in this place.
Secondly, we need your help with pastoral care. Federal regulations relating to confidentiality are onerous. It makes it very difficult for us to know if you or a loved one is in the hospital and there is not a magic ball in the church office that allows us to look at hospital listings. So, if there is a need for pastoral care please call me at the Grace Office phone number of (760) 744-7667. I will be there. That is one of the many things that God has called me to do. I am never “too busy”. We also want to share
prayer with you.
I’ll write it once more because we are all in this family business, God’s business. We are all in this together
