I hope you are staying warm and safe today! Due to weather conditions, we have made the decision to cancel Sunday school services for tomorrow. We will evaluate the weather again in the morning to decide if we need to cancel worship service. Please help spread the word for us!
We plan to meet in person this Sunday at 10:45am. We are limited on our gathering size, so our fellowship hall will also be set-up as an overflow area. We are planning to make both areas a great opportunity to fellowship and worship together.
Also as a result of restrictions, we will not be gathering for Sunday school. We are looking at some options going forward of how we can provide opportunities for spiritual growth and discipleship and I will be sharing those details soon.
It is my prayer for you and this church that we choose to look at this time as an opportunity for God to do the miraculous in our midst. Would you pray with me in this endeavor?
I am looking forward to our time together this Sunday and I pray that you are choosing to participate with an expectation to experience the living God!
I wanted to post a quick note about our annual meeting we held this past Sunday. I am so encouraged to see the life that is happening at our church and how we celebrated that during our meeting. I am prayerfully anticipating what the rest of this year ahead will look like for us as we navigate forward. God is up to some amazing things and I am looking forward to partnering with Him and you in the days ahead!
I am also excited about our recent election of board members as well. We had a total of three board positions up for election, with one of the positions a new seat on the board. Duaine Dodsworth remains our Sunday School / New Building / Treasure Champion, Keith Chapman is our new Facilities Champion and Aldor Cruz is our New Spanish Ministries Champion. Aldor leads the Spanish Congregation and does a great job. We needed a voice on the board that represents them and I am confident this will be a great addition to our board to provide leadership and insight as we move forward.
God is so good and there are great days ahead! Let’s be praying together for the Lord’s leading as we navigate these days ahead.
We have scheduled our annual member for this Sunday, May 10th beginning at approximately 12:30pm. It will be live-streamed and accessible through our Facebook page, our YouTube Channel and our website. I will be emailing and texting out a link to our online ballot to members for their vote beginning on Saturday. I will have some paper ballots available at the church office for those that would prefer to vote in that manner. They can be picked up ahead of Sunday’s vote with your option of voting at that time or returned on Sunday. Voting will close at 12:45pm on Sunday the 10th so all online votes must be cast by this time or ballots presented in person by this time. A copy of annual reports will be available to everyone online or in the office. It would be helpful to me if you could respond to this email that you are INDEED an official member of Wray Church of the Nazarene to verify with information that I have. I am working hard to try and make this process accessible to everyone as much as possible with the limitations we currently have. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to me. I am looking forward to great time celebrating what has been accomplished over the year and anticipating great things to come!
Serving Him with you,
