FAMILY MINISTRIES: Pastor Brandi continually checks in to give fun activities: sometimes daily, sometimes a few a week – so enjoy those and be sure to post pics on our Family Ministry Facebook Page: Grove City UMC Children and Family Ministry (link here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/361944150634877/)

CHECK ON NEIGHBORS AND LOVED ONES! This is a time we need to pull together. Check on your elderly neighbors and loved ones to see if they need anything. Pray for all of our doctors, nurses, first responders during this time – that God will place a hedge of protection around them and keep them well during this time. We need them!

Lastly, be wise, be prepared, but do not panic – don’t fear. The Bible tells us 365 times NOT to fear … that works out to a reminder every single day of the year. Now is the time we can be a people on our knees, praying for our country and it’s leaders. Won’t you join us in caring for those around us in this time …. how can YOU be Jesus to those around you?

Stay tuned for further updates …. til then, be safe and well.

            Remember that God has not called us to live in fear, but in faith. As the apostle Paul wrote in 2 Timothy 1:7, For the Spirit of God does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline. My prayer is that God will fill us with all of these.

            Blessings,        Pastor Dennis
