Peace's journey with COVID-19, Mar 26

Click here for a video of Pastor Kjell’s message.

Jesus calls us to deeply engage in the joy and messiness of our world Yes and we are doing that. I am so proud to be part of this faith community.  People worshiping together online and praying together and talking about things that matter and supporting each other over the phone, via text, and on Zoom. A team stepped up calling every member to check-in and see what people need. The last two weeks have been messy and we have leaned in with joy. 

This COVID-19 pandemic is still hard and scary but we are in this together and God is in the midst of us—both in the midst of our community and in each of us; God is as close to us as our very breath. 

COVID-19 changes our lives daily and tomorrow will mark yet another turn with the new stay-at-home order. We love being together as a church, but we are called to love the world more.  This stay-at-home order is a way of loving the world the very best we can, by not putting more people at risk.  At Peace we already have a plan in place and will be able to continue streaming worship and using Zoom for our small group ministries.  Our church website, peaceofplymouth.org is the place to go to access all resources.

If you need help, food or job search. Interfaith Outreach is our community’s best resource, find them at iocp.org and you can donate to IOCP via the “online giving” button on our website. 

Peace, we are being church together. Our pace of adaption over that past two weeks has been remarkable. As individuals and as a community it makes sense that we should be tired, we should feel it in our bones. So, be gentle to yourself. Remember you are a child of God, Jesus loves you, cares for you and is always with you. 

My thoughts and prayers are with you.
