Another option is to watch the Time of Grace broadcast on Sundays on WKBT, Channel 8, at 7AM or on WKBT Channel 8.2, at 1:00 PM.
While we might be disappointed by this situation, we recognize the opportunity God has placed before us to hold firmly onto His promise to be with us and never forsake us. All of the Sunday sermons we have heard previously have taught us what it means to be a Christian so we can be prepared for times like these. Even though we cannot publicly gather in worship right now, we encourage each of you to:
**pray for God’s healing for those affected by the virus
**pray for those involved in essential services – medical personnel, first responders, and those who keep the peace
**search the Scriptures to testify of Jesus, and know that through Him is eternal life
**continue to support the ministry of Grace through our offerings mailed to church (even though our pastor and teachers may not be in the pulpit or the classroom, they still rely on your contributions)
**support each other in our physical and spiritual needs
As we read in Psalm 46: The Lord Almighty is with us. The God of Jacob is our fortress. Come and see what the Lord has done. He breaks the bow and shatters the spear. He burns the shields with fire. He says, “Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations. I will be exalted in the earth.”
