A MESSAGE FROM PASTOR DOC

Friends, this is Pastor Doc. Because of the information from the CDC, Bishop Dyck has required all churches in the conference to suspend live worship services until further notice. So we'll continue our live stream of the worship services at 9:30 am each Sunday morning. We're working to improve the sound and quality of the service, but we want to help you worship and stay connected to one another.

We'll be doing a few other things right away to stay connected:
-Our Thursday night Wesley Group will call each member to check on you and see if you need anything.
-I will do a weekly midweek Facebook Live on this page to offer a blessing and give you information.
-I'm putting together a list of volunteers who would serve other members in important ways such as grocery shopping, giving rides to the doctor, child care, or any other things you would be willing and able to do. Please email me at Doc@MarengoUMC.org to tell me what you can volunteer to do.
-I'm looking to offer a way for members to record a brief video of yourself and your family to say hi to everyone and stay connected here. More on this later.
-We'll send additional emails to the congregation as needed to keep you informed of the latest news and information.

In the meantime, know that I'm praying for you and our church. These are remarkable times. Let's be kind to one another and look after one another.

Also, please don't forget to mail in your offering or use your electronic banking option to do that. This is so important, because we need that revenue to pay the bills and the mortgage and keep doing ministry. Please do this right away.

God bless you. We'll get through this. God is with us.

Peace,
Pastor Doc
