Dear church family and friends,

   The Session has prayerfully discerned that it is in the best interest of our church family to suspend worship services and activities for the foreseeable future.

   Also canceled will be the Easter Sunrise Service held at the home of Bill and Sue Carter.

   In the midst of their discernment, Governor Kim Reynolds declared a Statewide Public Health Disaster Emergency. All mass gatherings with more than 10 people are banned from today through March 31, 2020. Included in the proclamation are "social, community, spiritual, religious, recreational, leisure, and sporting gatherings and events."

   Because we do not know the full extent of the need to self-isolate in the days to come, we will be carefully monitoring the situation week by week after the end of the month. You will receive updates via Glimpses of Grace, the church's website and Facebook pages.

   Also, please remember your church family is here to support you. If you are not able to go to the store or do not want to be in a public place, Trustee Barb Garcia has a team of folks willing to help. Just give her a call at 319.850.5323.

  In the meantime, you can access the Sunday's sermon via our website, www.1stpresb.org and click on the YouTube icon, that I will prerecord and Kelle will post by the Thursday before. I will also be facilitating a Bible study for those interested on Wednesday mornings. The plan is to e-mail the scripture and questions to participants, and the interaction will be through  'reply to all'. It will begin at 8:30 a.m. and run through 10 a.m. If you wish to participate, please e-mail Kelle.

   Please keep our church family in your prayers and don't hesitate to make telephone or e-mail contact with those whom God brings to mind.


Sincerely,
The Rev. Deb Kinney

God in Plain Sight

Glimpses of God in the Ordinary


"God works through the ordinary. Ordinary people, everyday objects, things we bump up against moment by moment," writes Jill J. Duffield in the introduction of her Lenten devotion, Lent in Plain Sight. The Rev. Dr. Duffield is editor of The Presbyterian Outlook and has written the devotional book with the hope that by journeying through Lent while looking at Scripture and 10 ordinary objects like dust, stones and bread we will be able to "see God everywhere, in all things, in all creation, every day of the year." Honoring or lifting up "the ordinary" is what Pastor Deb has been trying to do through our Advent encounters with ordinary folk like Joseph, Mary and Elizabeth. They had extraordinary events happen in their lives, as a result of saying 'yes' to God, but they were just as ordinarily human as you and I, and God worked miracles through them. For Lent Pastor Deb is preaching on some of the ordinary-objects Scripture passages and, before the quarantine, she and Pastor Randy are offering prayer stations focused on seeing God in the various ordinary objects. She is also encouraging the congregation to take some time to notice God in the every day, ordinary world around them, and then to write them down. God likes the ordinary; after all, He created it. Celebrating and noticing the ordinary reminds us that God is present with us in the day-to-day living of our mostly ordinary lives. We had cards that you would write on in the sanctuary, and even though we are not there to write them on the cards, you can still write them to us. Fill out the form below to sent in your 'God Plain Sight'. Kelle will still add them to the bulletin board and Pastor Deb will still share a few during next weeks' sermon.
