Dear SMC Family and Friends,
While we are all coming to grips with the health pandemic of the Corona virus-Covid 19, we want to keep in touch to let you know that we are thinking about each of you. Please reflect on these realities from Psalm 46
1. We are in the midst of a new day.
2. We have to trust and rely on God.
3. We know that we are in the capable loving arms/hands of God.
4. The officers and Class Leaders have met and would like to share the following:
The church is officially closed for events and activities.
Church services will be held via teleconference until further notice. Although there will be a prompt to announce yourselves, that will not be necessary given the nature of our gathering. Announcing yourself may interrupt worship. To eliminate all background noise, please press *6 to mute yourself.
To avoid a delay effect while worshipping via teleconference we will not sing or read responsively. One person will be designated to respond for the congregation and one person from the choir will sing. If you wish to sing along, feel free while you are muted.
Please pass along the teleconference number and access code to friends and family so that they can join us in worship.
Please pay attention to the announcements concerning Bible studies, Noonday Refreshing and Holy Week.
Please continue to give of your tithes and offerings to the church. Mail in your offerings until further notice regarding electronic or online giving. Address your envelopes as follows:
St. Matthew’s Community AME Church of Hollis
203-11 Hollis Avenue
Hollis, NY 11412
Class leaders will keep in touch with you. Reach out and make sure they have your correct telephone numbers and email.
Finally thank you for every prayer and act of kindness. You are a blessing to the Body of Christ and this community. Continue to pray for our City, State and Nation. Adhere to the guidelines related to social distancing. There is wellness in the wilderness; we can come out of this wilderness better and not bitter. Maintain times of devotion, take time to listen and hear from the Lord, rest, eat healthy foods, avoid over- eating junk foods, address boredom creatively, drink water, exercise, stay connected to family and friends, and check in on neighbors. Be kind to yourself. God will see us through.
Pastor Hargett and SMC Officers
