Greetings in Christ,

     What a wild time! In a little under a week, your Session and I have moved as swiftly as possible in the midst of a rapidly changing situation to make decisions regarding the campus and ministry programs.

     In the interest of public safety and to stand in solidarity with our neighbours, we have elected to close the campus in order to do our part to seek to slow the spread of Covid-19.

     Worship services will occur in the Chapel (with fewer than 10 staff, leaders in attendance) and will be live-streamed. You can join in during the live stream of the service by going to Twitch.tv/FaithPresVV. Services will then be posted to the church website.

     Session and I will strive to keep you updated through this website, e-blasts (sign up to the right), and also through my personal email account: rev.richard.poole@gmail.com and even via text message or phone call on my cell phone: 818.993.2168.

     Should you need supplies, assistance, spiritual support or pastoral care reach out and let us know!

     I’ll/we’ll all be praying for you and for everyone as we weather this unprecedented storm – speaking of which draws my mind to the “storm-tossed boat” a parable occurring in 3 of the 4 Gospels (Matthew 8:23; Mark 4:36; Luke 8:22): let us remember that in the face of a storm at sea that could easily have killed them all, in the face of such a serious and significant threat: Jesus encourages his disciples to hold to faith (as a life preserver of sorts) and to resist clutching onto fear (an anchor that would drag them down).

 

Prayerfully,

     Pastor Rich
