A Letter from Pastor Reed Stockman:
Much has changed in the United States. The President has called upon all of us to help stop the spread of Covid-19 by limiting gathering to ten or fewer people. Because of this reality, and out of concern for our elderly members and those suffering from underlying health conditions, we have made the decision to cancel all church services until further notice.
At this time of uncertainty, we remember God’s Word to us from Philippians 4:6—“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”
If you have spiritual concerns you can contact me at 319-480-8927.
If you are advised to stay home, yet need to have something delivered to your home, you may call me and we will try to find a volunteer to drop that item or items off to you!
What to do if you are isolated in your home. How about spending time in God’s Word. We started Reading the Bible in A Year a couple of months ago. What a great way to spend your downtime!
Remember to call your friends, call your family, call someone you have not spoken to in a long time! Having human contact is very important for the heart, mind and soul!
Let’s take a moment and pray together now: Heavenly Father, we ask that You would grant us a measure of strength and comfort in the days to come. We ask that you would calm our fears and the fears of all those who might be anxious, nervous, and scared. Help us find peace and comfort in Your word and promises to “never leave us or forsake us.” Amen

May God bless you and keep you, may His face shine upon you and give you peace.
