A MESSAGE FROM OUR PASTOR DURING COVID-19
Dear church members and visitors,
These are very difficult days in our country and world. The COVID-19 virus has turned our lives upside down. St. Philip is no exception. We have been unable to conduct our normal worship service on Sundays, or Sunday school. Instead, we are creating virtual worship services, which you can find on our YouTube channel. Links to our most recent virtual services are listed below this note.
The session of our church has approved the staff to work at home and limit office hours. You can call into the church on weekdays from 8:00 am – 12:00 noon. That number is 817-282-9181.
We continue to provide a vital ministry to our community called Kay Lynn’s Pantry. People in the Hurst, Euless, Bedford area with a Loan Star Card can pick up free toilet paper, toiletries, cleaners and soaps, Monday through Thursday mornings between 8a and noon at the church. Also, Meals on Wheels continues to use our facility daily as a distribution site. Another non-profit organization called Mid-Cities Care Corps uses our facility to provide essential services for Seniors.
No church related groups are gathering at the church. We are beginning to conduct virtual meetings and conversations. And, our church members are being phoned by the Session and the Deacons of our church to make sure their needs are being met.
We continue to watch for the actions from the Tarrant County Public Health Department. We will follow their guidelines as well as the suggestions from the Center for Disease Control. Tarrant County declarations and restrictions can change quickly; and we are monitoring the news from our local authorities closely.
For now, we know that with God we fear nothing. We understand we can cast our cares on God and we pray that God will preserve us from needless fears and anxieties. Also, during this season of Lent we continue to follow Jesus as he walks to the cross. Join us on our YouTube channel and Facebook page as we continue our ministry in this difficult time.
Blessings and peace,
Pastor, St. Philip Presbyterian Church
