Friends of Amelon,

Due to the continuing danger of the coronavirus, Bishop Lewis has elected to cancel all church services for March 15th and March 22nd.  As such, we will not be meeting this Sunday (March 15th) or next Sunday (March 22nd).  I will be delivering some sort of live stream or recorded message both Sundays.

I was talking to someone today…maybe all of this is God’s way of getting us to slow down, reflect, and consider Him more.  So, my encouragement is to take the next two Sunday mornings and spend time with God.  Also, use these mornings as an opportunity to spend time with your families and in reflection.  Slow down…smell the roses, as it were.  Enjoy God’s majesty in your life.

God bless,

Pastor Mark
