Dear Friends in Christ:
SPECIAL UP-DATE ON THE CORONAVIRUS SITUATION
At the current time (April 20th), the coronavirus situation is still causing a major disruption if all of our lives, including our congregation. Since March 18th we have been unable to have congregational worship in our church sanctuary. We have also had to cancel or postpone all of our classes, group meetings, and fellowship events.
Our worship services each week (now Sundays and Thursdays) are live-streamed on our church’s FaceBook page. Each service has been viewed by many in real time, and by many more at a later time. For example, our Easter Service was viewed on FaceBook by more than 300 people, and by many more on our church’s website: StJohnsMiddletown.org
On Sunday morning, the church is open for individual and small group prayer and Holy Communion from 8:00 to 9:00AM, and again from 9:30AM to 12Noon.
Our congregation has made a commitment to keep the church building open for our members who want to come by for individual and small group prayer, conversation, and Holy Communion at times other than Sunday morning. Pastor has promised to be at church with the front doors unlocked every day from 9:00AM to 12Noon, every Tuesday through Saturday. You are welcomed to stop by during those hours.
Since last month’s EAGLE, many of you have been added to Pastor’s e-mail distribution list. We now have over 75% of the congregation. If you are not getting Pastor Rustico’s regular e-mail communications, please get him your e-mail address so that he can add you to his list. Either send him an email at:
SJLCPastor@gmail.com or click on the Drop Us A Line! button below.
We welcome you to praise God each Sunday
The center of our life as a congregation is our worship of God, Whom we know as the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Our worship is focused on the Word of God and the Holy Sacraments of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper. We gather together for prayer, praise and thanksgiving on Sundays and many other occasions.
