Thursday, March 26
As of today, we know the State of Mississippi has asked people not to gather in groups larger than 10 until at least April 17, so we will have no in-person events at the church prior to April 17…unless something should change! We are living in a time where we must take things day by day and make the health of one another a priority. Since we can not plan for April, there will be no newsletter for April. Please call before coming to the office as we are not observing regular office hours, but will be in and out to check on things.
We are currently offering several services and studies each week online to help us stay connected to God and one another. The schedule is found below. If you have access to internet, we hope you will join us for some of the services/studies. If you do not have Facebook, we have set up a Minor Memorial UMC YouTube page so that you can watch a video of the service after it is recorded; find the link on the church website: minormemorial.org. If you need help setting up Zoom or figuring out other technology, please contact Mike Beasley or Rev. Amanda!

Reminder...everyone is encouraged to do two things right now to take your next step as a follower of Jesus:
1. Call and check on anyone you think may be ill or unable to leave their home; see if they need anything and let them know you care.
2. Practice your spiritual disciplines: Pray, Read the Scriptures, do a RightNow Media online study, listen to worship music, journal, fast, practice generosity, serve others.
Above all when the fear and anxiety of our society is high, we need to remain rooted and grounded in our faith in God who repeatedly reminds us, "Do not fear." (One example is Isaiah 43:1-7).
