Back in Bethlehem…Now What?
Our Sermon Series is called A Page Turner, and we’re making our way through the book of Ruth. Now that Naomi and Ruth have arrived in Bethlehem, they have to eat, and so Ruth will head out into the fields to glean, that is, to collect any grain that the landowner has elected not to cut, or pick up any grain that has fallen by the wayside. This sets off a whole series of events beginning with a bold request on Ruth’s part, leading to an astonishing response on the part of Boaz, the landowner. By the end of the message, we’ll be reminded that it’s possible to be obedient to God’s commands and still fall short of living out His true intent. Pastor Bill’s sermon is titled, “Out Here in the Fields”. We hope you are able to join us, either In-Person on over the Live Stream, and be sure to read the first 17 verses of Ruth, Chapter 2 before you come or before tuning in. Go HEREat 8:00 and/or 9:45 in order to view the live stream. Go HEREfor a copy of the bulletin for the Sunday services (8:00 service and 9:45), which contains the song lists and the outline for this week’s message. Finally, just a reminder of our standard protocol:
If you find yourself in a high-risk category, it would be wise to view the service via the live stream.
Please remain at home if you do not feel well or if you have been around someone who has not been well, and again, be sure to join us by viewing the live stream.
We will continue to ask that everyone (except for health reasons) wear a mask as you enter and as you leave.
Please continue to practice physical distancing at all times.
Even as we are seated in every other row, please go out of your way to establish a generous amount of distance between yourself and others when choosing your seat. The room is large enough for us to spread out quite a bit.
While we encourage physical distancing, this does not mean that we discourage socializing with one another. Please greet and engage with one another from a safe distance as you come and go, even as you sit in your seat.
While we don’t often have people sitting in the front row or rows, it would probably be wise to avoid the rows close to the front due to the proximity of those singing on stage.
When using the restroom, please wash your hands thoroughly. Please continue to make use of the hand sanitizer that we have in the foyer and in the Auditorium.
Thank you, and we’re looking forward to worshipping Jesus with you this Sunday!
