A note of encouragement from Pastor Chris 3/19/2020 FBUMC family,
I hope this finds you well! Wanted to take some time to update you all on some church activities and upcoming events, as well as encourage you all to continue in being the body of Christ together. I know for me, as well as you all, this has been quite a difficult time. A lot has been taken away from many of us. Some have been sent home from work and school. We've lost the opportunity to celebrate events, and the opportunity to worship. However, the reason we are doing these things is so that we can better love our neighbors. The most loving thing for us to do in this time is to mind the social distancing that is being placed on us and our communities. By doing this, we are able to do our part in caring for one another. I do want to assure you our distance and inability to meet does not prevent us from being the body of Christ together. I would like to encourage you to do something kind for someone during this time. Write and send them a letter or a note of appreciation and love. Have your grandkids draw and color pictures to send to someone who needs a pick me up. Call and check on your church family and friends.
Though we are in this space of waiting and sometimes boredom, we are not prevented from serving God in other ways. I want to encourage you to be innovative in your loving of neighbor during this season of our lives as the world is always in need of more love, especially in times such as these. Grace & Peace, Pastor Chris McCain Christopher.email@example.com 334-790-5418
