I rejoiced when they said to me, “Let us go up to the house of the Lord.” Ps. 122:1
Dear church family,
We are very excited about reopening both our Abingdon and White Marsh campuses this coming Sunday! We can relate to the elation of the psalmist as he made his way to the temple to worship the Lord along with all of God’s people. We are looking forward to being together again after almost three months of Zoom meetings and Facebook services! This is a wonderful opportunity for us to begin to get back toward things being more normal.
We will be gathering for the purpose of being together to worship and hear the faithful preaching of the Word but it will look a little different than what we are accustomed to. How we gather will continue to be guided by wisdom in light of the pandemic that continues in our midst. We will need to proceed in a way that is safe, healthy and joy-filled. Here are some things that we have put together to help give you a picture of what to expect this Sunday morning.
The purpose of our time together
Who should consider waiting until later to attend?
We hope that we have covered most of your questions. Should you have any questions after reading through these notes, please do not hesitate to contact us. As a reminder, we will be meeting at our regular times: 10 am in Abingdon and 11 am in White Marsh. Some of you may not be ready to get together in a public setting, and we totally understand. Keep joining us online for the live stream of the 11:00am White Marsh Campus service!
Also, thank you for all of the prayers for us as we have evaluated and planned over the past month for the proper timing to open in the right way at the right time. We hold each of you in our prayers and are looking forward to gathering face to face (or mask to mask). May our Lord continue to fill you with hope and faith as you draw close to Him.
Jimmy, Mark and Jim
