Due to current CDC recommendations on assemblies, we, as the shepherds, are encouraging each of you to continue your worship with us FROM HOME. We are currently evaluating and implementing various ways to preserve the community of our Deerfoot church and keep the church spiritually nourished. These are unprecedented times, and while we can’t assemble physically, we can make use of diverse tools available to help bridge the gap. Your ideas and recommendations are tremendous – please keep them coming. Your adaptability, your expressed love of the congregation, your devotion to service, and your patient humility are all very humbling. Please continue to check on each other and 9 Let us not get tired of doing good, for we will reap at the proper time if we don’t give up. 10 Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us work for the good of all, especially for those who belong to the household of faith. [Galatians 6, CSB]
If you need communion supplies, come to the church building this Saturday, March 28, between 8 and 10 a.m. You can also pick up this week’s bulletin at that time, or you may access the bulletin on our website (www.deerfootcoc.com). On Saturday, we will only be giving supplies for this Sunday.
Wednesday Evening – March 25
On Wednesday, March 25 at 6:30 p.m. Richard will conduct an interactive Bible class live on our Deerfoot Church of Christ Facebook page. Login during this time to watch and add your comments and questions. You will also be able to watch here on our website and on our YouTube channel.
Sunday Morning – March 29
Les Self will continue the adult Bible study in Mark 10 in a Zoom meeting at 9:30am. Zoom will allow communication with the teacher. We do ask, though, if you’re not talking, please mute your microphone. The link to the Zoom will be provided in the Deerfoot Disciples Facebook group as well as in our Slack channel.
Live stream of the worship service is at 10:30 a.m. again this Sunday. Please join for prayer, another relevant lesson from Richard, and participate in singing and the Lord’s Supper. It can be viewed here on our website, on our Facebook page and on our YouTube channel.
Optimize your internet connection by worshipping using a single device in your household.
Responses to the invitation can be directed to Richard or the elders. There is nothing to prevent us from assisting someone who wishes to obey the gospel, and arrangements can be made.
Arrangements are being made for online contributions via credit/debit card or ACH debt. Until then, contributions may be dropped off at the building on Saturday, mailed to the building, or saved up to be given at some point in the near future.
As always if you have any questions, concerns, or needs, please contact the elders at firstname.lastname@example.org.
May God bless and keep you all in His care,
