Dear Church Family,
It’s unusual for a pastor to encourage his congregation to skip a public worship service, especially on a Stewardship Sunday - but I need to do that for this Sunday, November 22.
Even though we are conducting a worship service at 9am as normal, please note that the Covid 19 active cases are very high right now in Defiance County.
After some discussion with our Administrative board, we feel It’s a good idea for even more worshipers than normal to opt for our online broadcast instead of coming out to be among friends at Ayersville UMC.
I’ll be preaching part 3 of my series “A Grateful Heart” with a message entitled “Generous Gratitude.” Pledge cards will be distributed to those in attendance, but mailed out to constituents and members that stay home. We ask that you consider making a financial faith promise for 2021 over the next couple of weeks. Please be safe and yes - you heard it from me - consider skipping church, even if you have normally been attending during the Corona-virus pandemic! May God bless you as you serve Christ!
Pastor Mo Dunn
