Hello Pilgrim Rest Family,
I pray that you and your families are well, and that you are experiencing the presence of God in these days of uncertainty. Whereas we cannot totally count on those who are charged with the responsibility of governmental decisions, we can count on Jesus – who is always the same. Hebrews 13:8 reminds us, 8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
Therefore, although everything around us may fluctuate day to day, or even hour to hour, we can trust that 17 Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. (James 1:17 NIV)
Praise God for those of you who shared with us in our worship service last week on Facebook Live. We look forward to sharing with you again on this Sunday at 9:15 a.m. Additionally, please invite your friends and family to share with us in worship. Remember, they do not need to have a Facebook account.
If you know someone who does have the capability to view the service on Facebook, please inform them that they can call in on our conference line and listen to the service on their phone. The number is 425-436-6340 and the access code is 394518#.
