Need Prayer?A Time to Care
If you are in need of prayer or pastoral care,
please know that you may call the church office (235.0496) and ask for the Pastor of the day. You may also leave a prayer request four the Prayer Team by calling 864.672.1838 or emaling firstname.lastname@example.org
We encourage each of you to also be on the lookout for those who are hurting and frightened at the prospects of the future and offer your love and support.
We are all in this together, and we are now presented with an unprecedented opportunity to demonstrate the love of Christ both to one another and to the world.
Pastor Stan Johnson
Prayer for a Pandemic by Cameron Bellm
May we who are merely inconvenienced remember those whose lives are at stake.
May we who have no risk factors remember those most vulnerable.
May we who have the luxury of working from home remember those who must choose between preserving their health or making their rent.
May we who have the flexibility to care for our children when their schools close remember those who have no options.
May we who have to cancel our trips remember those who have no safe place to go.
May we who are losing our margin money in the tumult of the economic market remember those who have no margin at all.
May we who settle in for a quarantine at home remember those who have no home.
As fear grips our country, let us choose love.
During this time when we cannot physically wrap our arms around each other, let us yet find ways to be the loving embrace of God to our neighbors.
In Jesus Name, Amen.
