COVID Update 3/18/20

Those loved by Christ,

What a curious place we find ourselves in. As restrictions tighten we find it increasingly difficult to gather in our regular fashion. We thank God for our leaders who are working faithfully to “flatten the curve” and give our medical personal and communities the best fighting chance we have to minimize the impact of a highly communicable virus. God cares for us through our government and it is important, especially in a pandemic that we put aside personal opinions and for the love of our neighbors…
“submit [your]self to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established” (Rom 13:1).
The challenge for us is to live in confidence of faith and continue to encourage one another. Martin Luther went through similar circumstances during the Black Death. His letter has some great spiritual incites and is valuable for us right now. Give it a read…

Valuable step for our congregation:

  1. Go to the Word. Home devotions are vital in crisis or not. Here is a resource page of content for your spiritual growth. There are many opportunities to discover the reason for the hope we have and for those with children- to demonstrate to them the foundation of God’s Word for their lives.
  2. Please pray. I have included a prayer request form on his page. Feel free to use it as a way to share your prayers and pray for others. 
  3. Stay connected. Please call pastor If you need help-(504)330-7664. We are a family and a body built up to support each other. This page will serve as a hub for the time being with updates and new content. Check back for updates.
I look forward to the challenges and opportunities this pandemic has for us.
God’s Peace
Pastor Kehl
