When the KC Mayor began making noise about extending the stay-home order (calling it Phase #1 which is not much different from the Church’s perspective), I reached out to a contact we’d developed within the Jackson County Health Department. This person has maintained “no change” (full re-opening on May 15) all along – and then on Wednesday, May 6 the County Commissioner brought Jackson County in line with the rest of the KC Metro Area and delayed our opening, indefinitely.
I’m hopeful that we will again be able to gather some time before Fall. In the meantime lets’ keep loving each other in deed as well as word. Let’s look for ways to be a blessing. Let’s not forget to bring our full tithe into the storehouse. And let’s pray for each other and for our elected and appointed officials to strike a good balance of security and freedom. ~Pastor Scott
Do you not know? Have you not heard?
The Everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth
Does not become weary or tired.
His understanding is inscrutable.
He gives strength to the weary,
And to him who lacks might He increases power.
Though youths grow weary and tired,
And vigorous young men stumble badly,
Yet those who wait for the Lord
Will gain new strength;
They will mount up with wings like eagles,
They will run and not get tired,
They will walk and not become weary.
