3. For ALL WHO ARE ABLE we would like to ask the church to accept and participate in a
GOOD FRIDAY 24 HOUR FAST.
Set aside this day to hear God speak to you,
listen to the Good Friday Service at 12:10pm,
pray for those affected by coronavirus,
pray for relief from social deprivation,
pray for our church,
confess your shortcomings to God,
pray for boldness to spread the gospel,
and more as the Spirit leads you.

4.  Experiencing God class will continue May 2, 9-11am.

5. Harmony House Cafe is closed through April.

We will reevaluate all of the above as more information is available from authorities or circumstances dictate.

Please do not neglect the continued mission of the church in this time through giving.
Tithe envelopes and checks can always be mailed to the church office at 22 Cortez Drive, Washington, PA 15301.
In addition, we are currently in the process of setting up online giving and will post information about that once it is set up.

Seek comfort in God’s Word from Romans 8:35-39

35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?
Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?
36 As it is written: “For your sake we face death all day long;
we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”
37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.
38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,
neither the present nor the future, nor any powers,
39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation,
will be able to separate us from the love of God
that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Really miss you all and can’t wait until we are together again.

God bless you all,

Pastor Tom for
