Dear Friends in Christ,
I have a few things to share with you this week. First, an offer. I know that a good number of our members have chosen to stay home and participate in worship via the online service. I very much understand and respect that decision. But it has occurred to me that people who are doing that probably haven’t had communion for quite a few months. So, let me share an offer. If you would like communion, give me a call.
And second, I have a pray to share with you. My hope is that each of us continue to pray our way through these challenging times.
Lord rise up and come to our aid. You are the king who knows the secrets of our hearts; fill us with the light of truth and with your strong arm lead us to freedom, as you mightily delivered our ancestors; for the sake of your Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.

Walls to Bridges is a group of pastors in Tyler that works to bridge racial divides in our city. It is a great group, dedicated to sharing and celebrating in Jesus. They are hosting a worship service for the entire community on Friday evening, July 24. It will be an outdoor service on the Square in downtown Tyler at 6:00 p.m. Come and join with Christians from across our city to praise God and to prayer for Tyler and our nation.
