Message from Pastor Don

God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind - 2 Timothy 1:7

When Paul wrote this, He was giving encouragement to Timothy.  He told Timothy to “stir up the gift of God which is in you”.  In other words, keep on doing things in ministry, and do not let fear stop you!

Do you find yourself fearful during this difficult time?  Do you find yourself, like me, not sure what to do, what to think, and how to plan?

Ridgeview Family, God tells us not to fear, but trust Him in all things.  He is still on the throne and He knows what we are dealing with.  I have to keep telling myself that as we see directives come that tell us that we can’t meet together. 

What can we do, while we can’t assemble as the church?  

We can pray.

Pray with “supplication” for specific needs that we might be aware of.

Pray specifically for the missionaries you know.

Pray for others in our church, that may be having a difficult time with all of this uncertainty.  

Pray for your neighbors.

Use this opportunity to reach out to help someone else.

If you know of anybody near you, church family or not, that needs help during this time, please let us know.  We want to be able to serve others in need.

We are working on a way to stream a service together this week for Sunday.  We don’t have the equipment we need, but we are trying to put together a way that we can all be together in worship, if not physically, then spiritually.

We will let you know that plan as soon as we work out the details.
