Our ministers accepted a charge to be faithful in study and full preparation for the work of ministry. They vowed to be constant in prayer; to be diligent in seeking to win persons to Christ; to do the work of a good minister of Jesus Christ with courage, loyalty, faith, and devotion. They vowed to uphold Jesus Christ by their lives and teaching; to be ever humble and gracious in the spirit of Christ, and to study and teach the Word of God with faithfulness.

Message from Senior Pastor Ed Moore
 
 

Summer is here! We all have a lot of things on our agendas. Things we've been looking forward to before Covid19 completely destroyed our way of conducting ourselves. Everyone is looking forward to summer fun - and that's great.

The pandemic did great damage to our country and our way of life even in our way of worship. Churches were closed and there are still churches that are closed. We here at the Robinson Street Church of the Brethren have been diligent in bringing our church back to normalcy from the very beginning. We opened the sanctuary up as soon as possible-- all be it with social distancing and masks. Believe me when I tell you that we have worked hard to bring back this church as it was.

The pandemic era ushered in our first attempts at YouTube videos which we have been doing since early last year. We have improved the product to this present time. I'm not convinced that our members availed themselves of the opportunity to view the services as they waited out the duration of the pandemic. A lot of Christians have not found their way back to church yet for various reasons, maybe they never will.

As the saying goes “out of sight, out of mind”. But serving Christ and being in His house of worship does not fall in that category. We are the body of Christ. Each and everyone of us has a roll in the church.

We have summer communion and the church picnic coming up in July. We have kids church every Sunday. I am hopeful the choir will reform itself and come back in the fall. I'm also looking forward to having our ushers serving the congregation again.

I've asked you to bring someone to church, but you can't do that if your not planning to come yourself. The devil never sleeps, never takes a day off, never takes a vacation. He just sits back and waits for us to become complacent and then he just walks in and takes over. Let's hope that doesn't happen in this church.

Hope to see you in Church

Yours in Christ,

Pastor Ed
