"The Lord watches over you; the Lord is your shade at your right hand..." (Psalm 121:5)
Dear St. Paul's family,
Circumstances relating to the Coronovirus have been changing quickly, and it has become clear that we have an important role to play in the local community. That role, contrary to all our instincts, is to stay home and avoid gathering in physical spaces such as the church building. Here is Governor Cooper's most recent announcement to that effect, and here is an explanation of how our movements around the community put others at risk.
We are therefore suspending worship services, Sunday School, and all gatherings until further notice, We will record short worship services, children's messages, and daily devotions to upload them to Vimeo by Sunday morning; you'll find a link on our Facebook page and receive it in email too.
What is constant in these tumultuous times? The love of God, the need for community, the beauty of nature.
Some resources for prayer and reflection:
We will continue to be a caring and connected community, and we look forward to reconvening in our physical spaces as soon as possible.
