A time of sharing from Woodfield Community of Christ
As we all are impacted by the issues surrounding the Covid19 virus pandemic I felt it would be good to provide an update on the actions regarding the Woodfield Community of Christ.
First, I want to recognize and thank those members of our congregation who are involved in the provision of essential services as front line workers in the health care and retail industries. It is a stressful time for medical professionals and workers at hospitals and care homes as well as those who are working to ensure food and medicine is available as the growth of the Corona virus continues in our society.
In addition I also want to applaud those who are reaching out to family and friends to assist with the simple items such as groceries and necessities while vulnerable individuals are unable to go out and participate in the normal life activities we have all enjoyed.
If there are individuals who are in need of assistance with these normally simple routine tasks please feel free to let us know and we will see how we can assist.
Finally, it is reassuring to know that most of our community of Christ friends that were traveling are back home and safely undergoing self isolation with the exception of Chuck Boyd who has still not been able to return from Kenya. Keep Chuck in your prayers.
Church services and other gatherings:
World church has extended the request that our congregations close till may 1st as an effort to reduce the spread of the Corona Virus and as such Woodfield will continue to cancel all in person services, gatherings, or groups meeting in the church during this time period.
The only exception is the small group that meets to record the Sunday morning services each week in advance of them being provided online Sunday mornings.
That group is limited to three or four individuals who will provide the service ministry and recording requirements.
The services are available at the following link:
the services are posted between 9 and 10 am every Sunday morning including our special worship service for Easter Sunday, speaker High priest John Nichols.
In addition, Woodfield will have a recorded special service of scripture and music available online at the link above on Good Friday, April 10th at 6:00 p. entitled “Passion of the Redeemer”.
Remembering one another:
Life, as we have known has been re imagined as a result of this time of medical concern.
Please continue to offer prayers for all those who are affected by the situation we find ourselves in, call those who are on your heart to ensure they know that you are thinking about them during this time. We need to enhance our efforts to let everyone know they are loved and not forgotten.
To let them know that God’s Spirit is with them as we move through this Lenten time.
This situation allows us to focus even more on the realization that Christ was alone and separated from everyone during his forty days in the wilderness during His Lenten journey as we journey through this time of separation.
I pray that Christ’s Love will fill your heart and ease your mind.
In Christ’s name.

"It is not pleasing to God when any passage of scripture is used to diminish or oppress races, genders or classes of human beings. Much physical and emotional violence has been done to some of God's beloved children through the misuse of scripture. The church is called to confess and repent of such attitudes and practices."
