Weekend Worship and Bible Study Reminders

Hello Everyone,

 

If you have signed up to worship with us on Saturday at 5:00pm or Sunday at 10:00am, just a reminder that masks must be worn over your mouth and nose at all times, except when taking communion.  Also, we ask that everyone please use the hand sanitizing stations before entering the sanctuary.  These procedures are designed to make everyone feel comfortable and safe during worship, and we really appreciate your support with all of our worship guidelines during these challenging days.

 

We also have a new Adult Bible Study led by Rebekah titled, “Overcoming Anxiety” that we are offering every week on Mondays at 11:00am and 6:30pm during the month of August.  Anxiety can feel like a constricting snake slowly tightening around us until it is difficult to breathe. In recent weeks, the anxiety surrounding the rapid spread of the COVID-19 virus has a hold on the whole world as people die, economies decline, and our lives change right before our eyes.

In this four-part series, Jonathan Pokluda speaks words of comfort and wisdom, to help Christians navigate the areas of life COVID-19 is affecting. During this series you’ll be encouraged in how to overcome anxiety in these troubling days and explore ways you can remain faithful to God and to others.

Dear Family:

We have a new Adult Bible Study led by Rebekah titled, “Overcoming Anxiety” that we are offering every week on Mondays at 11:00am and 6:30pm during the month of August.  Anxiety can feel like a constricting snake slowly tightening around us until it is difficult to breathe. In recent weeks, the anxiety surrounding the rapid spread of the COVID-19 virus has a hold on the whole world as people die, economies decline, and our lives change right before our eyes.

Sunday Online Worship

Dear Family:

 

Here are the links for Sunday’s worship service:

 

Facebook:   https://www.facebook.com/HolyCrossClayton/  

 

YouTube:  https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCFWp14weSisxJFzEf7lGGUQ

 

We are continuing our sermon series on Sunday titled, “Order, Disorder, Reorder,” as we look how Jesus sent His disciples and all of us out into a sinful, hurting world to Share His Word and Live His Love.  The challenge for all followers of Jesus is great as we read in our Gospel lesson from Matthew 9:32-10:15 that the harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few.  My sermon is titled, “Reaching A Divided Nation.”

 

God’s Blessings,

Pastor Bill

June Newsletter

Hello Everyone!

 

Here is your June newsletter.  By the way, if you have not picked up a Portals of Prayer devotional or an Our Daily Bread devotional you are welcome to stop by the church and we will be happy to give you one.  You do not even have to get out of your car as we would be happy to bring one to you when you pull up to the front door.  We are looking to have the final inspections done on the new building sometime next week, so we are almost finished. 

 

God’s Blessings,

Pastor Bill

Scam Emails

Dear Family:

Many of you have received emails from someone or different people using my name over the past several months.  Please know that if you ever receive an unusual email asking for money or for you to contact me without any specifics, it is a scam.  You will also notice that all of the emails come from an email address that is not mine.  The only emails you will receive from me come from william.beyer@earthlink.net and william.beyer@holycrossclayton.com.  I report the scam emails when people receive them, but then another email address appears to be created with my name on it.  I am very sorry this is happening.  Thank you to all of you who have been bringing this to my attention and hopefully it will stop soon.

God’s Blessings,
Pastor Bill

PS – I usually sign all of my emails the same way (“God’s Blessings, Pastor Bill”) so if you see an email signed in a different way, it is probably a scam.

Worship for Sunday, May 24

Dear Family:

 

Here are the links for tomorrow’s worship service:

 

Facebook:   https://www.facebook.com/HolyCrossClayton/  

 

YouTube:  https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCFWp14weSisxJFzEf7lGGUQ

 

I will be meeting with our church leaders this week to discuss plans for opening our facility again for public worship.  There are many things we will need to consider to insure proper safety measures are put in place.  I realize our government leaders may put out some conflicting information concerning churches, but as soon as we decide on a return date for public worship we will let you know.  We will also give plenty of notice before we open our doors again.   I realize we are all excited to get back together for worship, and I really appreciate your patience and support during this time of doing our services online. 

 

Attached you will find the bulletin for tomorrow, Sunday, May 24.  I am preaching on John 17:1-11, focusing on how Jesus prayed for us and the privilege we have in sharing in His glory.

 

God’s Blessings,

Pastor Bill
