Pastor Debbie's E-Devotion - October 16, 2020

 Moscow First Family,

It is a busy time of year for the church, even in the middle of a pandemic. We are working on budgeting and planning for next year, hiring a coach for help with visioning as a congregation over the next 6 months, recruiting volunteers for our various committees and ministry work, planning for Advent and Christmas (I know, it’s early, but we’re trying to plan well for all the new variables we’re dealing with) and working on doing church in general. It may not always be visible but there are lots of irons in the fire!!

And, as part of that, we need you and your help! We are the church because of who we are together and we are doing that differently as we make our way through the pandemic. Running the business of the church looks and feels different, but we still need folks to serve on finance, SPRC (the HR committee), missions (helping with local outreach and broader mission work), and to help us continue our ongoing work of discipleship.

We know that we all set boundaries, practice precautions, and generally live differently now. We are constantly evaluating what is safe, what is reasonable, and what we have time and energy for. We want to honor those differences among us and find creative ways to be the church together.

Specifically, we need help in some of our leadership positions. Most things are happening remotely (including meetings) and often those things happen less often to allow for the rebalancing of priorities and stresses of work and home life. I am asking you to prayerfully consider if you might serve in one of the following ways. I’m happy to work with you around your safety protocols. If you do find yourself willing to step into one of these roles, please reach out to me by phone or email.

Peace and grace,
Pastor Debbie
