Beloved Christian brothers and sisters:
I would like to urge you to attend church this Fourth of July weekend. Let us celebrate our nation’s independence by exercising our right to free speech, freedom of religion, and the right to assemble. There have been many mandates over the past few months that have discouraged and limited the rights of Christians to worship corporately. The Word of God mandates that we should not forsake the assembling of ourselves together (Hebrews 10:25). It is more important than ever that Christians unite in prayer and worship. The answer to our nation’s problems will not come from the State House or the White House, but it will come from your house and the church house.
Once again, I compel you to be faithful to the house of God during this time, not only with your prayers, but with your presence. There is adequate room in most sanctuaries for worshippers to physically distance themselves. The wearing of face masks is an option if you are still uncomfortable with social settings during this outbreak of COVID-19.
In recent times, we have seen crowds of angry people gathered together so their voices can be heard by politicians. I encourage you as Americans and Christians to gather together to worship and pray so your voice can be heard by a holy God. We look forward to seeing you in church on Sunday. Stay safe, stay well, God bless you, and may God bless America.
Pastor Gibbs teaches our adult Sunday School class, and he does a wonderful job. Each week, we go verse by verse through a chapter in God's Word, and many lively discussions ensue.
We have been blessed to have a new ministry added to our church, New Hanover House of Wilmington, an assisted living facility that has about 90 residents, 32 of which have been saved in the past 6 months! Praise the Lord for new opportunities! Please pray for this ministry.
Please continue to pray for our bus ministry. The church needs bus workers to step up, go out on visitation, and drive people to church.
Genesis 21:30 (KJV)
And he said, For [these] seven ewe lambs shalt thou take of my hand, that they may be a witness unto me, that I have digged this well.
