An Update from Our Pastor
Dear Kenwood Family,
I know that it seems like these are days of information overload, with more concerning news about this pandemic flooding in almost hourly. I want to do my best to both encourage you to trust in God’s goodness and keep you updated on how this is impacting our day to day operations. Here are several items we need to pass on to you:
1. This week we will begin providing for encouragement, support and care for all our senior saints.
2. We will not host any youth activities on Wednesday night, but we will take this time to gather in the name of Jesus for any who would like to come. We will have a prayer meeting and a Word of encouragement from our God.
3. This week the CDC called for the cancellation of all in-person gatherings of 50 or more for the next 8 weeks. Yesterday, the President suggested no more than 10. But with that being said, the government officials and emergency personnel still have to meet due to the important service they provide. So I would like to remind everyone, There is no greater service than the ministry provided by the church and no greater power supplied than the power and demonstration of the Holy Spirit through the church. The gates of Hell shall not prevail against it! So forever who is willing and able- LETS MEET IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
4. We will not allow any type of food or drinks in the building until further notice.
5. We will not book any new events for the facility until the current restrictions are lifted.
6. We will not have discipleship groups meet on Sunday morning. We will just meet for worship service. We will provide a live stream Worship service this Wednesday night at 6:15 pm and again Sunday at 10:30 a.m on our Facebook page!
7. We will notify you next week of any schedule changes, but we anticipate continuing to operate under these restrictions for an extended period. Our ministry expenses will continue to require our faithful giving. You can give online at via the Tithe.ly app (and the website soon) or drop it by the church during operating hours.
8. We are still practicing social distancing and suspending hand shaking, hugging, etc. Instead, greet each other with a smile and wave. We are also still practicing our strict disinfectant policies put into place last Sunday.
I know that these measures are unprecedented, historic, and upsetting. None of us ever expected to be here. But God isn’t taken off guard. He is always present, always faithful, always working for our good. I’ve been reminded this week that we must keep the faith and finish our course while staying responsible with the gifts God has given us. Some of you will not be able to attend worship or prayer meetings because of your age, illness or by choice, but we are still here for you. We are all in this together. So let’s be humble. Let’s be wise. Let’s be ready. And remember this promise:
“I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.”
Your Pastor Loves You,
Pastor Ryan Moreaux
