“…it is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority.  But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses.”

-Jesus in Acts 1

He is Risen! But not even a pandemic can keep Jesus in the tomb!

Join us for worship this morning at 10:55.

This weekend is set aside as a time remembrance. Memorial Day is a time to remember those who have died in the cause of peace. We remember the 2300 who died on Dec 7, 1941, the estimated 2500 who died on D-Day, the 53,000 who perished in VietNam, as well as the 2 who died in Iraq in 2012 and the 620,000 who died in the Civil War. 

May God give us rest from our conflicts and teach us to live in peace.

How to Connect this Week

Each week during this time of global crisis, we, as a congregation, will continue to gather spiritually in worship and prayer at 10:55 AM in our homes and with our families. This week, we will be presenting a worship service on Zoom that will be recorded and made available through our website.

Here are the directions: 

Use this link on your PC, Mac, smart phone or tablet

https://ministrelife.zoom.us/j/3280714972

or you can use your phone to call either of these numbers and use this identification number: 328-071-4972

+1 253 215 8782

 +1 301 715 8592

If you connect by phone, there are 2 commands that will help. *6 will mute or unmute your phone and *9 will “raise you hand” so the host can call on you.

If you are unable to connect with this service, here are some thoughts for your own time of worship. 

1 Chronicles 16 says: 

Look to the Lord and his strength;

    seek his face always.

12 Remember the wonders he has done,

    his miracles, and the judgments he pronounced,

13 you his servants, the descendants of Israel,

    his chosen ones, the children of Jacob.

14 He is the Lord our God;

    his judgments are in all the earth.

15 He remembers[c] his covenant forever,

    the promise he made, for a thousand generations,

16 the covenant he made with Abraham,

    the oath he swore to Isaac.

In this passage we are called to remember the mighty acts of God, the salvation, the victory, the sustaining power of God’s hand. But we are not alone in being called to remember. In verse 15, God remembers the covenant made with Abraham. While we must be reminded to remember, God does not forget what has been promised. As we continue this Journey together, let us remember what God has done, and never forget that God does not forget!

“Remember”

Here is a song that invites you to join in a time of meditation:

“I Can Only Imagine”  

If you want to join more worship that is being streamed, you can find this map and links to churches in the region online:

I hope this will offer you encouragement this week. I will reach out again through the week.

Remember, you can continue to support the work of the church by giving through our safe and secure giving portal at https://secure-q.net/donations/Hatboro/1435. The needs of the church continue. In addition, the needs around us are growing. 

SPECIAL GIFT: This week we also encourage you to make a special gift to help us remember those who have died by supporting our cemetery. You can make your gift online and specify that gift in the “Notes” section of the contribution form.

If you are available to help others who are in need, please contact us at the church or by email @ pastor.hatboro@gmail.com. We are working on a database of helpers and needs that we will be able to address. 

Have a blessed week,

Pastor Doug
