RE:MOTHER’S DAY WORSHIP AND OUR OFFICIAL RETURN TO WORSHIP 2021

Greetings in the saving, healing and redeeming name of our LORD and Savior Jesus Christ.  Beloved, I pray above all things that you are prospering and in good health even as our souls prosper.

Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 9, 2021 is just three weeks away.  And this Mother’s Day comes with the added bonus of being our official Return to in person worship at 8:00am and 10:30am with a special time celebrating Mothers from 9:30am to 10:15am.  

Our Mother’s Day Theme for 2021 is:  “Pearls Of Wisdom”, Proverbs 1:8-9. Our color palette is pastel.  Our request is that you are present in person or online and that you participate by sharing a picture of your mother along with her name that will be presented in a special video presentation on Mother’s Day.  If using a smart phone please take your picture in landscape mode.  All pictures should be sent to Reverend Kevin Swindle no later than Wednesday, May 5th, 2021 via email at: kevin.swin@me.com.  

In addition to our in-person worship inside of the sanctuary, limited seating will be available beneath our newly constructed pergola on the south side of the sanctuary, complete with a screen for those who wish to socially distance outside.  All social distancing practices are in place. The faucets men’s and women’s restrooms are touchless as well.  Please wear your mask before entering the building. 

Care for children accompanying their Mother to worship will be provided exclusively at the 10:30am worship service, in the Grace and Mercy Rooms with a special Mother’s Day lesson and activity designed especially for them.  The Hope Room will be available to nursing moms.  This room offers privacy for nursing moms while allowing them to watch and listen to worship and seating with Gliders/Rockers in place.  The Hope Room has limited seating.  It is available on a first come, first serve basis.  

A special time of sharing and celebration for all mothers will take place between worship services from 9:30am to 10:15am in the sanctuary with additional seating available beneath the pergola.  

Mothers, please help us properly prepare by registering your commitment to attend worship via the church website at: www.wearethewordchurch.com, church app or by calling the church office.

Agape,
Pastor Sherman J. Fort

Post Script:  We need men to assist with serving the Mothers and women of our church as greeters, ushers, with set up, break down, etc.  We need qualified youth and young adults to assist with child care between worship services and during late worship.  Men please contact Deacon/Trustee Jerrold Boudreaux.  For youth and young adult volunteers please contact Minister Rosanna Taylor or call the church office.
