A Message from the Pastor


Dear brothers and sisters in Jesus Christ,

Many of you know that we are at the waging war of the corona virus as it’s surging across the United States. This pandemic is killing more and more people around the world. Weeks ago, we surpassed over 1 million deaths worldwide, and we don’t know when the vaccines will be available. But let’s continue to:

• Wash our hands frequently and thoroughly.

• Avoid touching our nose or mouth with unwashed hands.

• Follow the proper protocol by wearing masks and keeping at least 6 feet of distance from other people.

This is to “make every effort” to protect ourselves and to stay safe. As we are overwhelmed by the chaos and difficulty of life, we can turn to God in prayer for peace and serenity. In this time of uncertainty and fear, let’s not try to handle it ourselves. God says, “Hold onto my hand.” So let’s hold onto the Lord’s hand, who will protect us and save us.

Peace be with you!

Pastor Jean Lee
