While on June 20 Sabbath we had our first in-person worship service in awhile, we are reverting back to online-only services for now. Look out for coming announcements in the coming days on a new timeline for in-person worship service.

To return tithes and offerings, we have Online Giving. One tip: To make it more spiritual-centered, right before I click the submit payment button I pray with my wife thanking God for His blessings. Also, if you prefer to mail a check (no cash please) to the church, our address is here and please specify where the money is to go (e.g., tithe, Combined Budget, Church Expenses, local coronavirus relief fund, ADRA, Global Mission, etc.).
We want to "set our minds on what is above, not on what is on the earth" (Colossians 3). There are lots of great sermons and resources online that can help us grow. Here are just a few to get you started.

And of course there is Hope Channel, which streams 24/7 (also available on Roku and similar devices).
Quick tip: I find that the audio-only sermons (e.g., MP3, podcasts) are more useful. That way instead of staring at the screen I'm staring at my Bible!
Also, if you haven't heard the Adventist History Podcast (also on your podcast app), you are in for a treat. Be sure and start with episode #1.
Remember that God is in control! Philippians states:
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Go to God during this time and seek Him greater. He is our help and our refuge. Remember all the wonderful things He has done, is doing, and will do. Allow His peace to rule our hearts. He has got us all in His hands. No matter what happens we can trust in Him! Pray also for His guidance for healthcare workers and protection from this virus for those who are most at risk for serious complications.
