Dear Church family,

The City just informed me that they are cancelling all use of the senior activity center until the end of April. This is a reversal of course from what they told me yesterday, but they are responding to recommendations made by the Skagit County Health Department.

This is a unique time in the history of our church, and we hope it will pass soon, so that we can once again devote ourselves to fellowship together around the Word (Acts 2:42). In the meantime, we all should be praying for our church, City, county, and nation. And the Lord wants us to recognize that these sorts of disturbances are in the plan of God, and we should “not be troubled” by them (Matt. 24:6-8). God greatly desires our joyful trust in his Fatherly care, and I will be praying that His Spirit will work that trust into the fiber of our souls. Nothing is more important than that we have faith, and faith is tested in trials (James 1:2-4).

In the interests of maintaining ministry during this time, I hope to record a video of a sermon this Saturday and email you all a link so that you can watch and comment. The email should arrive to you on Sunday morning. If it becomes necessary, I can do this again in the coming weeks. Please keep on the lookout for any emails about further developments. Stay safe.

In Christ,

Pastor Tom
