May 14, 2021

So much, so fast is happening these days, it’s hard to make sense of it all. Keeping up with it seems challenging enough, and trying to get ahead of it – well that’s a God-sized challenge. Which is exactly our situation. Our tensions in America. India’s plight with COVID. Bombs again exploding in Israel & the West Bank/Gaza. And on it goes! All of this and more is mixed in the contrast of great news that is also happening. People helping each other. People praying, smiling, laughing, crying, sharing and working so everyone can get ahead by each one doing their part.

And for each of us, the call of Jesus continues, “Come! Follow Me! And I will make you into someone who can change the world as a fisher of people.” How? Well it is something we can all do and must do. Jesus explained, “Love each other as I have loved you. By this people will know and see that you are my disciples by how you love them.’’ This is the God-sized challenge we are called to live in times like these.

Following are 9 updates:

1). I am proud of you and grateful for you. (Click here to watch Pastor Les’ explanation). Because of the hard work we’ve all been doing, we can now enter a new COVID protocol. Everyone is on the honor system. Here is the explanation:

2.) “Dreams Through Troubled Times” is my message for this Sunday in the SANCTUARY, taken from Genesis 39:22-23; 40:1-8; 41:1-4,14-16. The service is also available by live-streaming through our website or on Facebook Live at 10:30am! We continue to follow the recommended safety protocols for San Antonio and Bexar County, and require everyone to wear a mask for the service if you attend in person. A digital bulletin is provided so you can follow along during worship, both at home and in-person, with your smart devices. This Sunday, whether in person or by Zoom, participate in a 9:00 a.m. Bible Study, followed by our combined worship service at 10:30 a.m. We provide hybrid Bible Study opportunities for all classes who choose this approach. For more information, please contact your Sunday School leaders and/or the Pastor who directly works with your class.
