As we know the whole world is fighting a dangerous and contagious viral enemy. We all wish it weren't so. We all long for the pre-pandemic days that might have seemed hard at times, but nothing like this. The way previous pandemics were ended was by quarantining. In other times there was no medicine, no vaccine, just careful and responsible behavior.
We can do this. As Christians, we need to take the long view. We need a daily attitude adjustment, to remind ourselves that God is still master of the universe, and is helping us. This is not a time for self-pity, even if the disease has interfered with plans we had, or with life as it was before. Now is the time to be creative, prayer, responsible, hopeful, and--yes--joyful! Our community and family and friends need that, and we can do it.
~Pastor Gregory
We can do all things through Him who strengthens us! (Philippians 4:13)

All of our kids (age 0 - 5th grade) as they struggle to find a new normal in school. For our youth (grade 6 - 12 +) as they deal with their anxieties about what the future holds for them. For our parents as they try to hold things together for their kids, their work and the health and safety for them all. For FCC, the Board and Staff for tough decisions that are being considered and made. For all of those in our community who are in great need and are being impacted in
ways we can't comprehend by this pandemic.
