Don't Leave Him
Jesus will never give up on you.
Some of the crowd who followed Jesus still didn't believe. We're told, "Jesus had known from the beginning which of them did not believe and who would betray Him…From this time many of His disciples turned back and no longer followed Him" (John 6:64,66).
Do you think that includes Judas? Judas was still part of the Twelve even in the upper room the night before Jesus died, yet in his heart and soul it's very possible that Judas-right here-turns away.
And Jesus knew it. He knew right at this moment that Judas would be a traitor. Jesus knew even a few years ago when He was deciding whether or not to call Judas as a disciple that Judas would betray Him. And still, Jesus chose him. Still, Jesus loved him.
We want to scream out to Jesus, "He's not worth saving!" but Jesus knew that about Judas, and knows that about us. Jesus knows I will betray Him again with my sins, and He still loves me. I'm not worth saving. You're not worth saving. Jesus knows that. But He loves us anyway. He never gave up on Judas, even to the end, and Jesus will never give up on you.
So don't leave His life-changing love. Don't turn away from His call to discipleship no matter how difficult. Don't give up learning about Him and from Him so that you can better follow Him and better bring others to Him.
PRAYER: Lord, you have the words of eternal life. We believe and know that you are the Son of God! Amen.

Sewing Medical Masks
JoAnn Fabrics has the materials for medical masks precut,
as well as elastic - they are not charging for any of the materials.
You can take as many as you need, sew them, and return
them to JoAnn's - they will distribute them to the medical
facilities that need them.
An easy, but very important way to serve Jesus right now -
if you sew and have a sewing machine,
please consider helping in this way.
Here is more info on their website with patterns.

We are not having our mini communion services due to the

Give Offerings Online
It is easy to set up an account and download the app. This will be another way to safely and securely return your gifts of thanks to the Lord. There are small admin fees for each transaction, as there are for any electronic monetary transaction. There is a button to click to cover those small admin fees, if you wish.
You can still mail your gifts to the Lord to church,
or drop them off at church directly. Here is an instructional video on installing and using our new online giving option.
The Lord is seeing us through this time, and will continue to do so.
I look forward to the day we will be able to gather together again
as the body of Christ in person at Lamb of God!
Until then, God's peace to you in Jesus!
Favorite Hymn Sunday
When we gather again together & resume services, we will celebrate favorite hymn Sunday and every member Bible Study. Our Bible Study that day will dig into wisdom and discernment as modeled by young Solomon as he became king of Israel. It will be a blessed day as we all gather around God's word together to grow in his grace. How wonderful it will be to be together again to worship!
We are gathering a team to update and overhaul our church website. We want to streamline, modernize, and have it in position for livestreaming in the near future.

If you are willing to use your gifts to serve Jesus in this special way, please contact our outreach chairman, David Cory at 256-724-2296 or email at email@example.com
The Lord has blessed us with a gift that has completely redone our sound and video system. We are looking for additional people who wish to use their gifts to serve in that area during our worship services. If you are interested in helping during our services in this special way, please speak to Pastor.
