I counted recently and this Sunday will mark 19 Sundays since our last "regular" worship service. I can't help but think of that ever-present question on a family trip, "are we there yet?" Is this thing over yet? We all so long for that time when things will feel normal again. I fear it is still a long way away. This week, Governor Cooper renewed his "safer at home" directive for another 3 weeks, even as he announced the possible return of students in some modified pattern. Please know that the whole worship team and I long to see your faces, to join with you in song, to have our voices joined in prayer and affirmation. Even so, we affirm the concerns of many and understand the need to continue as we are. Please join us by radio on 97.9 "The Bear" at 11:00 or on Facebook Live at 8:30, 9:30, and 11:00.
