This is Monte Savage, I currently serve as your Lay Leader, and along with my wife, Karen, as your Children's Directors. I have the privilege of offering the sermon this week (thank you for asking me, Emily). We have all had need of an encouraging word or friendly smile at times, but when God gives us the task of encouraging others, how do we know what to say or do? This week we will look into some ways that we can hear God and trust his word to help us help ourselves and others during times of uncertainty. I do hope that you will join me in the sanctuary this Sunday at 10:30AM, if you feel safe (protocols like required face coverings, sanitation and distancing are in place). or online (link below). As we journey through this time of uncertainty together please know that I am always available to talk to if you have any questions or concerns. You can reach me at 970-556-1747 or firstname.lastname@example.org. I am praying for your physical and spiritual well being. Stay safe!
In His love,
Worship LIVE Sunday 07/19/2020 at 10:30AM (stream begins at 10:25AM)
