Worship 4/5 and Church Life During Coronavirus

Posted by Steven Light on

Dear Sojourner family,
As we approach Palm Sunday and Easter at a difficult time in the world, consider 2 Timothy 2:8-9:  Remember Jesus Christ, risen from the dead, the offspring of David, as preached in my gospel, for which I am suffering, bound with chains as a criminal. But the word of God is not bound!    Remember Jesus Christ, brothers and sisters.  We may be bound from gathering and from normal social interaction, but the word of God is not bound!  Jesus Christ is alive.  The grave is overcome.  Sin is defeated.  He reigns in power, holding the keys of death and Hades.  All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to him.  His word is going forth. IT CANNOT BE STOPPED.  COVID-19 must serve his sovereign ends.  May we find his indestructible life more precious to us than ever before, especially in these times.  

Please be informed about the following matters in the life of Sojourner:

Sunday Worship and Prayer
This Sunday, there will once again be an audio recording of the worship service available online at http://www.sojournerpresbyterian.org/.  I apologize for the service being posted later than intended this past Sunday.  There were some unexpected factors, which I believe we have solved.  This Sunday, Lord willing, the service should be available no later than 10:30am which will hopefully be conducive to your routine on the Lord's Day.  Thank you for bearing with us.  The order of worship can be found HERE.  We will be detouring from our series in Nehemiah and considering Isaiah 26:  Hide Yourselves for a Little While Until the Fury Passes By.

Join us for corporate prayer this Sunday night as well: 6:00-7:00pm.  This is a very good way to sanctify the Lord's Day by joining with God's people in the evening. Join by Zoom video using the the link provided by email.

Good Friday Service
Take note that there will be a Good Friday service, done jointly with Holy Trinity, and available online on Friday evening.  James Ritchey, pastoral intern at Holy Trinity, will be preaching.  Please don't miss this opportunity to fix your mind on our Savior and his atoning death.

Community Group
Please join us for fellowship, connecting with one another, discussing the sermon, and praying together, Thursday nights from 7:00-8:30pm. by Zoom meeting.

Some have asked about giving to the church during this time.  You can use the Giving tab on the website to give using Paypal.  You may also send a check to our business office at Holy Trinity.  Send to:
Sojourner Presbyterian Church
350 S Hyde Park Ave
Tampa, FL 33606

The Lord has sent these circumstances for us to steward.  Let's redeem the time.  Devote yourself to prayer, fill your mind with the word of God, and seek to meet the needs around you.  This time is appointed by our God.  May you know his peace and favor in the midst of it.  Please keep me and the church posted on any particular need you may have.

Much love in Christ,
Steve Light
