When the Israelites were leaving Egypt, they were faced with a flowing river in front and a dry, hot desert with many Egyptian soldiers behind. It was a situation they had never faced before and were quite terrified until God stepped in to deliver them. Similarly, today we are facing a situation we have never faced before. But, we are NOT terrified, but confident in God’s love and protection. Obviously, we are going “where no one has gone before,” but it is no surprise to God. As Moses led the Israelites to stand and see the incredible power of God, so should we stand and watch his incredible power. Soon, this will be a memory we will speak about for the rest of our lives.
As we move closer to opening up DCC, we are engaged in a variety of possibilities, while keeping up with the changing health order requirements. Our primary concern will be to keep everyone safe, while simultaneously enjoying worship together. Having said that, our primary concern right now continues to be helping you through these challenging times. Let us know if we can help you better!
You will be receiving a letter from our elders this week. Read it carefully and stop and pray for these wonderful shepherds! They are overseeing our staff very well and we are deeply grateful for their love.
Many of you are asking about Worship on the Water (in the amphitheater) this summer. We are hoping to have some form of worship at the amphitheater, but will have to see how the county health orders change. We’ll keep you posted via email.
Remember to join us for church this morning at 10:00 a.m. as we live-stream our services on our DCC YouTube channel. You can easily access it by going to dillonchurch.org/live. And don’t forget to access Julie’s video for your children.
Come join us for communion… we’ll be serving drive-through communion today from 11:30-1:30. Drive around back and we’ll meet you at the rear entrance. No need to get out of your car!
Hang in there and remember to contact us if you need help.
In this together with you,
Jim Howard, pastor
