Grace and peace to you in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
The spread of Covid-19 and the various responses to it have presented numerous challenges to us as The Church. However, it is also opening doors to reach our communities in incredible new ways. I agree with Louie Giglio - social distancing does not mean we have to practice spiritual distancing.
Our North Georgia Conference leaders have asked us to continue with remote activities and services through June 22nd, and we shall. We will continue to live-stream worship online on our Facebook page. Amy Chaffin, Julie Conrad, and Mike Johnson will continue to provide their wonderful musical talents - and we'll have other people join in as well.
I encourage you to do whatever you can to continue your spiritual life as a member of our church. Practice social distancing. Participate in virtual worship and Bible study experiences. Reach out to others who are sequestered at their home or retirement homes. (I have been calling and checking on church members.) Give blood if you can.
Please remember your church and our missions during this time. You can give online at our website through this link. You can drop your check off at the office (9a - 3p, Mon-Thu). You can mail in your check to our P.O. Box:
Jodeco Road UMC / 1740 Hudson Bridge RD #1231 / Stockbridge, GA 30281.
I believe that God is still in charge and am confident He will get us through this if we work together.
In His Word,
Pastor Dee Dee
