Pastor Andrew's COVID-19 Weekly Update 4.2.20
Pastor Andrew COVID-19 Weekly Update 3.27.20
Dear Penn Valley Family,
In accordance with the request from our governor and from an abundance of caution, we have cancelled all onsite gatherings through April 30th, 2020. Join us online at 10:15am on Sundays for worship. Also look for communications during the week that call us to pray for and serve the needs of families in our church family.
During times like these let's remember:
Our God is in control. He is not surprised or panicked. He has a purpose, even in crisis. When we know He is Sovereign, crisis brings opportunity for trust, service and witness (Acts 16:22-34).
Our church is in Good Hands. He is the Chief Shepherd (1 Peter 5:4) who leads and guards His flock - even if we don't meet all together on a Sunday! He bought, preserves and grows His Church through every generation and difficult circumstance. Remember: the gates of hell cannot prevail - He will build His Church (Matthew 16:18).
Our prayers instill peace. When we lay our anxious thoughts at His feet, He untangles our worries and replaces them with His peace. He is the one who grants us the "peace which transcends all understanding" (Philippians 4:6-7). The world is watching - we can show them the Prince of Peace.
Let's pray together: "God, truly You are my Rock and my Salvation. You are my Fortress so I will not be shaken!" Psalm 62:6
