As of Friday, Governor Polis allowed a few people to meet in the worship area to bring a live stream service to our congregation. It is not our understanding that he has allowed large groups to meet yet. For your safety, please continue to respect the Stay At Home order to to social distance. Find a creative and healthy ways to connect with your friends from church.
Psalm 56:3 says, “When I am afraid, I put my trust in You.” This is what we will continue to do during these trying times. We will not fear, but we will be discerning. We will continue to lift up the world in prayer and trust in the power of the Holy Spirit.
Art Show Postponed
Artwork for our annual art show was due March 29th. However, since the city is on lockdown please do not bring your artwork to church. It is obviously closed. Please use this time of sheltering in place to deepen your walk with God and to improve your art skills. Paint, take photos outside/inside, sculpt, write poetry, or whatever your artistic interest is, use this time to express yourself in art. When the lockdown lifts and we are allowed back in churches we will set a new date to turn in your artwork. Remember, the theme as you do your art and as you pray: ‘Revival!’
