Thanksgiving Message from your DS

We're entering into a wonderful season of the year, the season of Thanksgiving. And I was reminded as I was preparing for this talk to you today that the scriptures tell us,

"In everything, give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you." (1 Thess 5:18)

You see, that's where our Thanksgiving belongs. That's where our Thanksgiving is rooted. It's in Christ Jesus. And it's concerning you. It's concerning your friends. It's concerning people who are not yet followers of Jesus Christ. It's concerning the people in your church. It's concerning the people of our world, where our IWs are seeking to reach them with the good news of Jesus Christ.

And so I want to express my thanks to you as members of the CPD family.

August Message from your DS

During these days when things are not what they should be and maybe not what you would like them to be and certainly not what they've been, my encouragement to you lay leaders and pastors and CPD family, is to use this again as an opportunity to know Christ.

Let's focus on the Christ who came and the Christ who will come again, the Christ, who is our holiness, who is our sanctifier.

Let's increasingly get to know Him.

It's in Him that we live and move and have our being. This is our opportunity during these days. This is our privilege during these days.

We all need encouragement to be prepared for the fallout of the shelter in place experience. It will have an effect on our congregants both personally and financially. These effects will certainly be felt in the church. I encourage all of us to realize we are partners in this journey. Let’s reach out to one another, call on the District staff for assistance, and share prayer requests with one another.

We are not alone!

Watch the video above.

I'm sure that you have heard that the CARES Act was passed and signed into law by the President. Here's what we have gleaned that pertains to religious nonprofits:

CARES Act Details:

    • Sends direct checks to individual Americans up to $1,200
    • Provides grants and loans to churches to meet payroll and pay rent
    • Provides liability protection for providers who volunteer (Good Samaritans)
    • Allows HSA to be used to purchase over-the-counter medications
    • Extends expiring health extenders to November

Currently, we are not aware of any confirmed cases of COVID-19 either in any of our district churches or on the campus of Simpson University.  Some of you may be facing the potential of government officials in your community requesting restrictions on public gatherings.
