Please take care and practice common sense prevention methods in this time of viral concerns and the spreading of sickness, YET join us in worship this coming Sabbath Day, Jan 24th, 10am and 5pm. Lord willing, a new year has come upon us and we are still holding outdoor services in the morning by our facilities BUT continue to provide social media services with limited personnel for those who have access to the internet and for good reason cannot make it. The State has disallowed indoor services and to this date is still doing so. We thank God they are currently allowing outdoor services and depending on weather we hold them right next to our building in a beautiful patio area. Considering its Winter, please nevertheless dress warmly. We are not in an area concerned with extreme weather conditions but can be rained out. In those circumstances we hope you will be able to join us ONLINE! Our evening services are held ONLINE because in this time the sun has gone down at 5pm and the temperature also drops.
We thank you for your prayers and continue to ask you to join us in prayer that God will allow His people, if it be His will, for us to once more assemble in peace without restrictions and unnecessary or unwarranted fears. As we see AGAIN our state, down to our county PROHIBITING indoor assembly now since November 16th. It is unlawful for it is against the Constitution, the established law of the land, to put restrictions on worship, but we oblige though it is having unhealthy spiritual effects not to assemble in person, not to see the saints freely, to break bread, to encourage one another, to pray and worship corporately in person. We thank God for the internet to reach brethren in their homes, but that is not the rule, but the exception.
Take great note that spiritual and civil liberty given by God is precious and we should always give thanks for it, it came at a GREAT and PRECIOUS cost, by the blood of Christ.
Certainly the famine of assembling together is a great lesson for us never to forget and take for granted liberties God grants us through His institution of the State and are to be upheld, watched over and protected by His seated leaders. It is also a proving by God as when clarity of true intentions are revealed by prohibition, if contrary to honest preservation, but having other malevolent intents, then it is a time of testing of His saints.
Let us pray that God would provide and seat God fearing righteous men in power to protect the civil liberties we have held in this nation for hundreds of years. We now have passed Election Day and there was legal investigation of voter fraud which seems to have been stifled by the courts and resulted in an unlawful tumult erupting at the capitol building on Jan 6th which escalated government and corporate oppressive actions . Pray for this, that there will be JUST resolution. We are in need of righteous men to lead our nation It doesn’t happen apart from God’s will, and in this nation as He raised it, it is by the means of its citizens electing such men, if there be, according to God’s will, such men, and a greater populous of such heart. God’s will be done.
