Dear Church Family,
We will get through this! God is in control and He has promised to never leave nor forsake us. He has also promised, that "No one or nothing can take us away from the palm of His hand." Please rest assured, that in spite of what is unforeseen, we have no fear. In the words of King David, He leads us to green pastures and to still waters, His rod and His staff comfort us. He's got this! Also remember the words of Jesus, “Though you may have troubles and tribulations in this world, be of good cheer for I have overcome the world."
When the time is right, I look forward to seeing you face to face as together we worship Him Who conquers.
As for this Sunday, and throughout the duration of this temporary struggle and hardship, we will not be holding Worship services at CUF but will have a Pastoral Prayer and an audio sermon for all to listen to on Sunday mornings by 10:30 am through The Clarion email or also by going directly to our website, cufdeland.com.
Please join us in listening to His Word of encouragement in this time of trial.
Your Pastor and Friend,
Worship with Christ United Fellowship from the comfort of your own home. Join us every Sunday at 10:30 am during this special time as we worship from home. Every week we will have a Pastoral Prayer and an audio sermon for all to listen to through The Clarion email or also by going directly to our website, cufdeland.com.
Please pray for those oversea's including missionaries, Walter and Diane Kennedy. As we are in these unprecedented times, they need our prayers more than ever.
As you sit at home, looking for entertainment, here are a couple of brief videos of the ministries that you have been partnering with them on in Papua.
Initially, Lent was the season of spiritual preparation involving concerted prayer, fasting and Bible study before their baptism on Easter. But it wasn’t just those being baptized who were called to Bible study, fasting and prayer. The entire believing community was called to such spiritual preparation, introspection, prayer, study, repentance and fasting.
On the Christian calendar, this season of the year is equal in importance only to the Season of Advent. It is a part of the second major grouping of Christian festivals that include Holy Week, Easter, and Pentecost. It is primarily a time of preparation to celebrate God’s marvelous redemption at Easter, and the resurrected life that we live as forgiven and saved Christians.
During this year’s season of Lent, I encourage each of us to take a good look inside our hearts and examine where we are in our relationships with the Lord. l also encourage us to dive deeper into our faith through more Bible study, more prayer and greater personal sacrifice for Him who sacrificed everything for us.
