Dear STL family,
We are eager to gather together to worship in our sanctuary, but we want to make sure that we are doing everything possible to keep our families safe, while complying with the Governor and the Michigan Department of Health.
The elders of STL have approved the following plan, but it is important to understand that this plan could still change, depending upon state guidelines.
We do not yet have a date for re-opening, but as soon as we do, we will let you know. Our 9:30 a.m. services will continue to be broadcast on Facebook and our web page as they are. Here is the plan as we initially phase back corporate worship:Read more
How many years has it been since we have had weather like this on a Memorial Day weekend? My childhood memories of the 4th weekend in May center around camping in wet and cold state parks. Yet, in spite of the weather, all the memories are fond … Memorial Day meant that summer was right around the corner.
Generally speaking, I use Sunday afternoon through Monday morning for recovery and reflection. A little relaxation with food and beverage … getting my head organized for the week ahead … reading the Free Press … some Bible reading and prayer … watching some sports (I wish). I hope you noticed the word “generally.” Such was not the case this past weekend. Rather, in those 24 hours I received a text, an email, a private message, and a phone call … all needing immediate and prayerful attention.
Do you remember the children’s game “Leapfrog”? When was the last time you played it? If it’s been too long (or you never played it), you can watch a YouTube video to learn how! The cool thing about leapfrog is that you go from the back of the line to the front without ever stopping in-between. I think I am ready for a game of that right now.
