Midweek Devotional and Update
Dear Fourth Church Family,
In today’s devotional we reflect on Paul’s exhortation for believers to “maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.” These timely words from Ephesians 4 call us to closely guard and plead and pray for the unity of the body of Christ.
Also, three notes for you (more details below):
- This coming Sunday we transition to a livestream service, which will begin at 9 a.m.
- No Q&A/discussion following our congregational prayer time tonight; we will resume next week.
- Today and Saturday, consider participating in the latest round of our food drive to serve our neighbors in need.
Grace and Peace,
This Sunday: Livestream at 9 a.m.
Congregational Prayer Online, Wednesdays, 5:30-6:00 p.m.
Join our churchwide online prayer time by video or phone. See the information sent to the Fourth community this morning via email. If it’s your first time joining us, you can get familiar with Zoom videoconferencing ahead of time here.
