  2. 2. Pastor’s Pen In the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have been adaptable and have transitioned to the innovative way of reaching out to the community around us and connecting with the majority of our active members—at least those who were willing give the technology of live-streaming a try. In the process, we have discovered that we have successfully connected with some of our home-bound members, and some members who have moved away. We have also reconnected with others and some new people as well. We have been blessed by having Nate Lockwood help with establishing the technology for the live-streaming. We want to continue to offer this way to connect with the home-bound and reaching to new people, in the fu- ture. We need to think about how we might attract others to join us. So, we have quickly and somewhat easily made this transition—at least when it came to the decision to move ahead and do it. We thank all of you for your continued support of this effort. In the process, we have just begun to make the transition to the new ways of communicating and connecting with the younger generation in the ways that they are already using. We need to see what lies ahead, and how we can continue to share the Gospel in new ways with others. Thank you for being adaptable and supportive of this effort! May God continue to use us, and may we be a blessing. Rev. Les Peine Devotional Thought: Hebrews 13:20-21 “May the God of peace . . . equip you with everything good for doing his will…” When we end our worship services, we offer a benediction and a sending greeting. We don’t simply say, “Have a nice week.” We go from our service of worship to our everyday life of worship. In order to do that, we need God’s blessing and equipping. The writer of Hebrews is also sending us out with a reminder of who is going with us. It is “The God of peace . . .”—not a God of wrath and anger. This is the God who is sending us and equipping us. We do not do the good that we do, all on our own. We need God’s help, guidance and strength so that what we do is pleasing to him. We need God to equip us with “everything good for doing his will.” By God’s grace, we do everything for God’s glory forever and ever. Prayer Lord, Jesus Christ, equip us with every good thing, so that we can do your will and that we may be a blessing to those around us. May all that we do be to Christ’s honor and glory now and forever. Amen. .

During the conference, the District unanimous- ly supported the initiative to support the Teach • Reach • Bless campaign for Africa University. The district churches are asked to pledge together to raise $30,000 in the next 2 years and Crossroads UMC will match that amount for a total of $60,000! This contribution will furnish dorms and furnishings for the women of Africa Uni- versity. We, as a church, will be participating in this campaign. If you would like to donate to this campaign, simply mark your donation, “Teach, Reach, and Bless.” Our district churches have already sent in over $7,800!!
