June 25 Inspiration

From the Desk of Pastor Becky Hart

Dear Friends:

Our Worship Committee and Session have been hard at work on reopening Liberty step by step!

Through the end of July, we are offering open prayer time in the Sanctuary on Mondays and Thursdays.

The next step will be [email protected]!

Starting Sunday July 12th and continuing on Sundays through August 2nd or 9th, we will be offering a small, informal outdoor evening service on the church lawn, modeled after our Wednesday evening Lenten services.  There will be a layperson sharing, pastors’ praying, music with Steve on the piano, John on the guitar, and some of our singers. We hope this feels like vespers for those of you who went to a summer camp with those wonderful evening gatherings (that I remember fondly!), or like you are experiencing a Lenten evening service, but outside in the beauty of God’s creation.

[email protected]’ will be bring your own chair, sit in marked socially distanced pre-marked spots, and wear a mask – all going the extra mile for our brothers and sisters in Christ.  Everything that we are doing these days is a pilot program, and we are piloting this with 70 folks, plus helping deacons and staff. You will be able to sign-up through SignUpGenius – which will go out by church-wide email on July 1st.  Our primary Sunday service will continue to be offered online, but as we take small steps in reopening, we hope this simple evening service will be an additional blessing.  And we look forward on your behalf to next summer when things return to normal!

Finally, just a note that John & my last Sunday is August 23rd. Our Transitional Pastor Search Committee, chaired by K.C. Baker, is already hard at work!

We look forward to sharing in prayer and worship in these ways and more.

May we stay strong as a family of faith, even through the challenges of Covid-19.  And may you know the presence of the Lord with you and yours.

With All Blessings,
