CHLC family and friends,
This coming Sunday, July 5, is the Fifth Sunday
after Pentecost. This is also a holiday weekend
as our nation celebrates Independence Day on
Saturday. I pray that you have a safe and enjoyable
weekend, even if it is a little different from
other years. We plan to be with family in Northwest
Ohio doing our best to socially distance and
keep everyone healthy and safe. Having 17 people
coming from all over Ohio, gathering in one
house is a challenge, but we will have the AC
turned off (hot!!!!) and the windows open and
fans keeping the air fresh. Most of the time
we plan to be outside, and a number of family
members are going to sleep in tents in the backyard.
It will be different, but the important thing
will be spending time with each other ... six
want to thank in advance my son, Colin, who
will be assisting Anne and me with worship this
week. Colin will run the camera, read the lessons,
and edit the final product as we "pre-record"
it Thursday afternoon. I will share it on our
Facebook group Sunday morning at 10:00 a.m.
and send it out as a link to our email group
then as well. One unique benefit to this situation
is to have a holiday weekend away without a
week leading worship and preaching!
CRC Kid's Club will return for a scaled-down,
one-month long summer session beginning Monday,
August 6. They have lots of protocols in place
for distancing, PPE, handwashing, sanitizing,
etc. We will see how it goes and what we can
begin to have in our building in the not too
am keeping it short this week, but rest assured,
you are all in my prayers during this time.
We lift our nation and our world up, placing
them into God's hands as we do what we can to
love our neighbors and love God with all of
our heart, soul, mind and strength.

bless you all!
