Please Join us for our on-line Sunday Worship.
Important information concerning the COVID-19 pandemic:
Important information concerning the COVID-19 pandemic: The Board of Elders, at their meeting on February 2, 2021, decided to reopen the church for in-person services on Palm Sunday and the
beginning of Holy Week on March 28, at 9:30 a.m. Until then, services will continue online on YouTube. This decision came as we remembered our calling at the beginning of this ordeal, “Because we want to keep our flock safe.” Group meetings/ facility usage for meals, Bible Studies, projects, etc. will continue with existing
safety protocols in place. Wearing a face mask is required when entering the building – if you do not have a face mask, one will be provided. Communication is being made through the church’s website, the “One Call Now” system, letters, and through our Shepherd’s Phone Tree.
Join us for our Wednesday Lentin Services on our web page. “Bible Postcards from Home” Join us. The group is anywhere between six to 12 screens of smiles, with no masks on. We gather on Tuesdays from 10:00 a.m. – 11:15 a.m. “Bible Postcards from Home” that is what I am calling our new 10-week study during Lent.
The pattern of study began last Tuesday, and will continue each Tuesday for the next 9-weeks at
10:00 a.m. as we zoooooooooooooooooooooooooom
March luncheon has been cancelled.

Update from Ray of Hope
4 days ago
Greetings from Kenya! We hope you are all doing well. The Tesh family wants to say sorry for not sending an update sooner.
We are doing well as a family. Blessing is doing well. She is in school. Love has started
preschool and is enjoying that very much.
Ray of Hope is doing well. The school has opened again. As we all know, this last year was not a
normal year. We had to reduce the number of kids in the school to meet the government’s
requirements. For right now, we have pre-school and grades 1 and 2. For the children’s home, we
are doing very well. We only have 12 kids there now. We are praying for more kids. We have
continued to grow our gardens, including a good crop of corn this year. (We have had to share
part of that crop with local monkeys!)
As the Ray of Hope team, we feel that this year will be a year to rebuild and evaluate our
progress. We are also looking into other ways to develop ourselves and our ministry because of
changes brought by Covid-19.
We are very thankful for your prayers and your support for us as a family and for the
ministry at Ray of Hope. We would like you to pray with us as we rebuild and evaluate ourselves
and the ministry. Please pray for our school to grow and that we get more buildings to host more
classes and kids.
From the Tesh Family ~ Michael, Ceci, Blessing & Love
A Special Thank You
Hello Church Family,
July 24th and July 25th Troop 94 and myself constructed 1 paver patio with 2 benches and another paver patio with a bike rack for my Eagle Scout project. I chose this project as a thank you to my church family for supporting me throughout the years and for buying popcorn.
At this time, I would like to give an update of the project. The paver patio project is almost complete. The only work left is the engravings on the bench backs. I’m asking one last time for donations and pepperoni roll orders. Pepperoni Roll orders will be taken until August 9th and donations will be accepted through August 23rd. The project cost was approximately $2,475.00
Thank you for your donations and orders from your future First Moravian Eagle Scout.
