A letter from the Rev. Jeff Miller, Sept. 7, 3:30 p.m. EST
O Eternal Lord God, who alone spreadest out the heavens and rulest the raging of the sea: Be pleased to receive into thy protection all those now traveling by land, sea or air; by thy good favor keep them in perfect safety; and among all the hazards of this life, be thou ever the protector and savior of all who trust in thee; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Dear friends in Christ,
Due to the potential impact of Hurricane Irma, the parish office will be closed from Friday, September 8, through Tuesday, September 12, and all parish activities are cancelled during this time. Rally Sunday is rescheduled for next week and all Bible studies will be postponed until the following week, unless otherwise announced.
God willing and the weather permitting, we will have one worship service this Sunday at 10:30 a.m. (no child care), but urge people to use extreme caution and good judgment in traveling to the peninsula. Should the situation deteriorate and it becomes necessary to cancel Sunday’s service, we will make the announcement via email and Facebook.
Many of you have weathered hurricanes before, but we urge you not to take unnecessary risks. The members of the clergy will have their cell phones with them at all times, so please do not hesitate to contact them for any reason.
In the meantime, please take care and watch over your families. In the midst of life’s uncertainties let us hold fast to Him who walked upon the water and bids the sea, “Be Still!”
