Dear Faith family,

As the month of June begins, we are still experiencing increasing cases of COVID-19 in our area. So we still need to maintain our path of public worship with prescribed methods of safeguarding our health and the health of others who gather to worship with us.
It is hard to be patient. It is hard to persevere. It is hard to envision when and how we will return to anything resembling our previous worship experience. But, our lives rest in God’s gracious hands.
Romans 5:3-5 says, “We even rejoice in our suffering, knowing that suffering produces perseverance, perseverance proven character, proven character hope, and hope is NEVER disappointed for the love of God is poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit given to us.”
We don’t rejoice because we suffer. But, we rejoice that as we pass through this period of struggle, God can and will use it to shape our character, strengthen our faith, and deepen our love.
Council continues to meet weekly to assess all matters, and weigh decisions for our congregation. Pray for our leaders. They are serving you well and faithfully. This week they approved serving our community by hosting meetings for foster parenting, beginning this summer into the fall. Watch for details. This week at our ‘regular’ council meeting, we will be deciding on renewing our YMT contract with the camp, and considering resuming the search for a Communication/Technology Director, as budgeted.
This week we mailed out materials for our LifeKids Appeal. The whole vision for LifeKids expansion is a big dream. It will take the power of God’s Spirit working in and through all of us to successfully implement what we believe are God-given dreams for loving the children and families of Spencer. Please prayerfully respond as the Spirit leads.
“Let’s not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary.” Galatians 6:9

Peace and power,
Pastor Lee
