Even though we are not able to gather together in person we continue to be the church – finding new ways to reach out: praying for one another, sending notes of encouragement, making phone calls, supporting each other as best we can. That is what the church is all about, not the building but the people!
We continue to gather for worship each Sunday morning at 10:30 am via Facebook live (www.facebook.com/FirstPresbyterianChurchOmaha) as well as Wednesday evenings at 6:30.
Our Hand-up Food Pantry continues to operate as the need in our community escalates. If you or someone you know is in need of a “Hand-up” please contact the church office and we will make arrangements for food to be picked up at the church.
Finally, we want to offer some reassurance. We were designed for just such a time as this. We are called to be God’s hands and feet in the world. We can do that today. This week our church began setting up a concentrated effort to minister to those affected by the Covid-19 virus. We have a team of people who want to be in contact with those who are isolated due to the pandemic. If you need to talk to someone, if you need help or assistance, or if you want to help render this assistance, please reach out to Sherri in the church office (email@example.com), to Pastor Jenni (firstname.lastname@example.org), or to Pastor Jon (email@example.com), and you will get connected to people who care and want to help.
We are not in this alone, we are a community drawn together through our faith in Jesus Christ, whose love transcends all illness and all separation. May we be His hands and Heart to the world today!
