Pastor Stanley M. Jacobs, Sr.

Psalm 23:4 (ESV)

“Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.”


David has a word of encouragement for us today.  His words written some many centuries ago echo in our hearts as we continue to deal with the departure of family, friends, and loved one.  Death is like a shadow hovering over the entire world, yet we take comfort in knowing that our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is with us.  He will never leave nor forsake us!

 

The Delta Variant is surging in America so we will maintain the safeguards that have served us well so far.  Some of you have asked about restarting ministries and auxiliaries.  The pandemic is not over so we will not consider this until it is safe to do so.  Please continue to take measures to keep safe and access the worship services and Bible studies in the manner that works best for you and your health.

 

The Sunday morning worship service continues to be livestreamed at 10:00 am.  The 8:00 am sermon is presented on Facebook Live.  Your support in these difficult times has been outstanding.  May God richly bless you for your faithfulness.  Please keep the people of Haiti and Afghanistan in your prayers.


Blessings and Be Safe,


              Pastor Stanley M. Jacobs, Sr.
