Sunday’s Message Will Be On Facebook Live
Greetings Church Family,
The clergy of the Northwest Episcopal Area of the United Methodist Church has received a letter from our Bishop, Elaine Stanovsky suspending worship for a period for the next two weeks. (The link is included below.) As is currently planned worship will resume Sunday, March 29, as well as any gathering of more than 10 people. That said, I am advising we keep to our Governing Board meeting schedule for Tuesday evening, March 17, as we need the opportunity to discuss how our congregation can best respond to the needs of our community.
I will also be keeping office hours at the church on weekdays for the pastoral needs of our congregation and community.
It goes without saying that the ministry of our congregation depends upon our financial giving. Our participation and love for the congregation keeps us alive, but so does our offering. Remember that you can always give through our church website, churchoftherogue.org (click The Hub from the menu bar and sign in with your user name and password. On the left menu bar, click Give. You can choose a one-time gift or a repeating gift), or by mailing in a check to the church office. In closing, take good care of yourself, and those within your circle of care. We are each a precious gift to the world and a child of God. Eat well, get plenty of sleep, try not to worry about those things that are beyond your control and take care of those things that are. And gather your information about the virus from reputable websites and outlets, such as the Centers for Disease Control. cdc.gov
With affection and peace,
