. . . “Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel.” (Isaiah 7:14 NIV)
One special day, redemption was wrapped in swaddling clothing, mercy was in the manger, and grace was growing. Mary didn’t know that she was holding the founder of the Christian church and the Author and Finisher of the faith. She had no idea that 2,000 years later we would celebrate His life, death, and resurrection by reenacting His last supper. In the face of human fears, disasters, and inadequate defenses, God has given us a baby. We should get on board with this Baby because He is Immanuel: “God with us.”

PRAYER MEETING @ 6:00 pm
BIBLE STUDY @ 6:15 pm
Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
It is my hope that this letter finds you in good health even in these trying times. Make no mistake, I am very aware that the COVID-19 threat is at our doorstep. Never-the-less, we who name the name of Christ must still live and act according to our faith. What that really means is that we are to live and act in such a way that displays the very fact that our trust is in the living God who has all power in His hands. We are not going to panic, nor will we walk around in fear of our lives, which so many are doing because they have not the assurance of God’s Promise.
We will heed the warnings that our government officials have issued as to protecting ourselves and others from contamination:
a. Wash your hands frequently and use Hand sanitizers
b. Maintain social distancing (6 feet) between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.
c. Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth. Because hands can transfer the virus to your face.
d. Practice respiratory hygiene. This means covering your mouth and nose when sneezing or coughing.
e. Stay at home if you begin to feel unwell, even with mild symptoms.
Because it is my duty as your Pastor to look out for your spiritual and physical welfare, we will continue to have our Sunday services and midweek services. Going forward, I am asking the following of each of you:
a. Heed the warnings stated above.
b. DON’T attend the services if you are not feeling well. (coughing, sneezing, fever) You may connect with us on either our website www.newmtzion-boynton.org or on Facebook.
c. Refrain from handshaking and touching.
d. Sit at least 3 feet apart in our Sanctuary.
e. If you are unable to attend, please continue to support this ministry through your financial gifts. Arrangements can be made for drop off of gifts by contacting your Ward Leader or myself.
f. Notify me if you or someone you have been in contact with is diagnosed with COVID-19.
My brothers and my sisters, let Us take courage from the words found in Psalm 91, “He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in Him will I trust.” Let Us do what we can as we continue to trust in the Lord with all our hearts. May the Good Lord bless and keep you is my prayer.
