Wednesday Morning Bible Study

We welcome everyone to join us for our weekly Bible study in the Fellowship Hall each Wednesday morning at 10:30 AM. Come and bring a friend as we study the word of God We will continue our study of Hebrews chapter 9, question 11. Happy New Year to all. Led by Virginia Mora and June Phelps.

Thank You!

I want to thank Lisa for leading last Sunday. She was a great addition to the rest of you who serve us each week! We had a wonderful weekend with a wedding and a baptism. (George’s heaven, including tickle time with the grandchildren.) I hope that this season of Lent is doing the work we seek each day. Letting go of all other lords and ways of living, to enter and embrace the Life of Jesus Christ is somber, joyful, and transformative. Let us hold one another in prayer as we pass through this sacred season. -George

Retreat – April 24 – 26

Pastor George would like to invite you to attend a retreat, “Making Peace” led by Jamie Norton. This weekend retreat is a powerful experience of God’s Love and Grace helping us to make peace with our past and equip us to live the full lives we are made for. He has attended this weekend retreat and led the 8-week follow-up group multiple times. It is wonderful for everyone who wants to feel the loving presence of Christ in their daily lives. It is especially helpful when there are things in your past that keep you from trusting Christ’s Love. Let Pastor George know if you are interested or have any questions. The retreat is April 24th – 26th in Mebane, NC. The cost $150 but scholarships are available.

Church Nursery Volunteers Needed

There is a sign-up list on the piano near the front of the Sanctuary. In case we have a family or visitors with children from birth to 4 years of age, we want to provide a setting for the younger children during church. We realize that there may be Sundays that no younger children are present, but we ask for volunteers so that the Deacons may direct the parents/grandparents/family to the availability of the nursery and point them in that direction. If you volunteer, please be in the nursery area around 10:45 AM and greet any families who may come. If no one arrives by about 11:10, please come into the Sanctuary and join the church service. One or two people may sign up per date. If you have questions, please contact Gayenell Gull or Barbara Pratt. Thanks for your help with this!

Nursery

For families with infants or young children, a nursery is available in the west education wing. The Deacons are available to provide additional information.

Concerned about the Coronavirus (COVID-19)?

We know many of you may have questions and concerns about the COVID-19 virus. First, rest assured that WakeMed has a comprehensive plan in place for caring for any patient who may present with a suspected or confirmed case of the illness.

What are my best resources for new information?
This situation continues to evolve with new information becoming available almost daily. As a result, the best resource for the most up-to-date information is available on the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) website. This can be found at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html. There, you will find detailed information on COVID-19, including how it spreads, symptoms, prevention and treatment, testing and other frequently asked questions. Additional information can also be found on the NC Department of Health & Human Services webpage at https://epi.dph.ncdhhs.gov/cd/diseases/COVID19.html

If you have questions or concerns about COVID-19, the North Carolina Division of Public Health is the most appropriate organization to contact. They have established a call line at 1-866-462-3821 to address general questions about the coronavirus virus from the public.

We don’t need to panic, but it’s definitely important for us to stay informed and be prepared.

Just a warm reminder for you to pass on – remember to use the common sense approach to good personal hygiene practices to prevent the spread of this virus illness or other illnesses, including the flu and colds:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water
  • Don’t touch your eyes, nose, mouth with unwashed hands
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw it in the trash
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • If someone is coughing or sneezing, stay at least 3 – 6 feet away
  • Stay home when you’re sick and see your doctor if you think you’re ill
  • Try your best to stay healthy by eating healthy, sleeping well, and
  • drinking plenty of water in order to boost your immune system.

The most vulnerable are the elderly and those with weakened immune systems especially those with respiratory problems. The overall risk for the healthy is rather low. So stay healthy and safe. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your loved ones. Please take care!!
