Dear Yates Family –
I miss you!
These past few weeks, I have been praying intently for our church and for the many in our community who are engaging the new challenges of college, classroom and virtual schooling. I pray for teachers, administrators, students and households trying to make their way through it. It can be wearying to say, “We’ve never done it this way before,” but it is again our reality! It will not always be this way. Never weary of encouraging one another through these days.
One of our happy discoveries in July was the warm reception Zoom worship received. We extend you the opportunity for live online in worship via Zoom on August 16, August 30, September 13 and September 27.
I hope you will join Yates in worship this Sunday, August 16, at 11:00 am. Here is the information to log in for worship (this information is the same for all our scheduled worship services):

I also want you to know of my sincere offer to facilitate smaller groups for in-person worship gatherings on the grounds or in your back/front yards on Sundays or during the week. If, in August and September, you would like to have some time to worship, sing, pray and share the Word of God in person, contact me to schedule a time and gather a group to share the experience with you. I will happily travel to you, or we can arrange a meeting on the church grounds. Weekdays or Sundays are available, with the exception of Fridays and Saturdays, please.
May God bless you this week. Be a blessing to others. We are all in this together, and together we’ll see it through.
Grace and Peace,
