Pastoral Epistle-May 11, 2022
Greetings in Jesus!
“The LORD is your keeper; The LORD is your shade at your right hand.” Psalms 121:5
We are thankful to our Lord for his protection and care over us and over our loved ones. God’s Word teaches us that our Lord is our keeper, to safeguard us from all evil. He is close to us as a shadow at our right hand.
This evening we will have our Bible Study and Prayer time at 7.30 pm. If you have any prayer requests feel free to send them to me. Please join online using our Sunday Service Zoom link and be blessed. Please invite your friends who will be interested in a systematic study of the Fourth Gospel.
We are thankful to everyone who is praying for Ukraine. Let us continue praying for peace and God’s mercy on Ukraine. Our outreach coordinator is making plans to raise funds to support the people of Ukraine through our diocese.
Sunday. May 29th is the fifth Sunday. We will not have Holy Eucharist instead we’ll celebrate with songs and testimonies. Please let me know if you would like to participate in songs and testimonies on the fifth Sunday.
