Dear Ebenezer family, I greet you in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. I trust and pray that each of you and your families are doing well. We are doing fine. I am truly grateful for your support for our new reality of worship - in the sanctuary and virtually by digital media. I want you to be encouraged that I am supportive of your choice to worship the Lord as you choose best for you and your family. I want you to know that I love serving you as your pastor-teacher, equipper, spiritual and congregational leader. I only hope that you can feel what I am saying. If this is not true, for you, please let’s have a conversation about it. I want to be what God has called me to be for your life at Ebenezer. As we continue to move forward into this new era of worship and ministry, it’s going to take some adjustments for all of us. New things are going to occur in worship and in ministry. I only ask for you to pray for my wisdom as I seek to lead our congregation into pleasing God. This coming Sunday, we will be doing something very new for us. I am praying that you will be blessed. Of course, you’ll have to wait until then to know what I am talking about. Next, I want to remind you that we are transitioning our Bible Study and Sunday school teaching to the Zoom platform (which is video and audio). This technology allows for those who are at home or wherever, to participate in study together. We are using a recurring link (which means you can save the email with the link for reuse) that allows you to join any Bible Study, Leadership training and Church Conference. I will put the link below in this email. The Zoom video feature is for those with digital technology that has camera capabilities. This allows you to be seen (if you choose to) or not. This is a great way to fellowship with others in virtual reality instead of being in person. The Zoom audio feature is just like the conference call line. Dial the phone number that is closest to the area/region where you are. You will be heard, but no one will be able to see you. Both features have the mute and unmute capability. This helps cut out any extra background noise or conversations, which are being broadcast to everyone on the Zoom meeting. Like with any of our ministry endeavors, friends and family are welcome. All they need is a copy of the link, which you have permission to forward to them or give them the meeting ID. Also, I have attached a copy of the Introduction to the Book of Joshua. This is our Wednesday Night Bible Study book of the Bible that we are studying. This is what I covered last week. Please join us and bring guests on with you. Be in prayer for the Garrett, Wilson and Rooks families during the home going celebration of Elder Sharon Faye Wilson Rooks, the niece of our Sister Eveline Garrett. Viewing is today July 14th, from 2- 6pm. The Celebration of Life is Thursday, July 15th at 11am. Both services will be held at Metropolitan Funeral Home in Portsmouth, 5605 Portsmouth Blvd. Also, our Church Conference will be held on Saturday, July 24, 2021 at 12:00pm. This will be a virtual Zoom meeting (the link below will get you access to it). Your attendance is requested. Thank you in advance. Happy birthday and happy anniversary to all July birthday, and anniversary celebrants. I pray God’s richest blessings on each of you. Amen.
