Hi Friends,

It has been quite a week.  I don’t know about you, but I never felt more of a need for church.  As sad as things are, I believe that God wants to work peace, hope, comfort and joy in our hearts as we worship Jesus together this Sunday.  Whether online or in person, it’s going to be so good to be together.  Please take time to review our liturgy below and use it as a prayer guide to prepare our hearts for this gathering.  Also, prayerfully consider who God wants you to invite this Sunday.  And if you feel the Lord putting a prophetic burden on your heart, please reach out to me and I’d love to consider how God might use it to bless our church.

If coming in person, don’t forget to RSVP.  https://www.eventbrite.com/o/christ-church-south-philly-31522935663?s=125255171

Grace and peace,

Pastor Jeff
