All in-person gatherings are currently suspended.
As a church, we are committed to monitor and communicate with you as best we can during these trying times. We will continue to utilize the technology available to us to continue our life together as the Church.
On Sundays, worship gatherings will take place online through Facebook and Youtube at 11:45 am. These services will, as usual, include music for worship, prayer, sermon, and announcements. We are grateful to God for the technology that will allow us to continue to gather together for worship as we are scattered throughout Salt Lake City and beyond.
WHAT SHOULD WE DO?
For many of us, this current moment is understandably unsettling. But as our Christian faith proclaims, we have the promise that nothing will ever separate us from the love God has for His people (Romans 8:35-39). Furthermore, our help, confidence, and protection comes from Him if we just ask and seek refuge (Psalms 121, Nahum 1:7).
In addition, Pastor Luther has laid out a few pastoral exhortations on how we can live during this time.
1. Prayer: “Let us pray. Let us pray for our political leaders. Let us pray for President Trump and Governor Herbert. Let us pray for the mayors of our townships. Let us pray for the doctors and nurses that are tirelessly serving the needs of patients. Let us pray for researchers that are seeking to create a vaccine. Let us pray for the sick to be healed. Let us pray for the vulnerable to be protected. Let us fervently seek the Lord in prayer.”
2. Trust: “Let us trust in the Lord. During this season, I personally find it easy to be driven to fear. Fear of the unknown. Fear for those that are vulnerable. But in the midst of doubts or worries for safety, let us confidently look to Christ and trust in his sufficiency. Let us trust in the one who controls all things.”
3. Love One Another: “Let us seek to love one another. Sadly, in the time of fear, people can grow in selfishness. Hoarding supplies for ourselves. Thinking only of our needs not the needs of others. But during this time, let us discern ways in which we could love one another. How could we seek to love and care for the more vulnerable? How could we seek to encourage one another through times of fear? How could we share the hope of Christ with our neighbor? In a culture of fear, may the love of Christ permeate through our life as a church family.”
