Sabbath Announcements

August 1, 2020

WELCOME: During this Covid-19 pandemic, we have all experienced a much greater sense of isolation.  We miss our friends and family.  We miss worshipping together at church.  We miss going and doing the normal things that make up our lives feel normal.  Please know that we miss you all very very much.  Right now, the most important thing is your safety.  This pandemic is very serious.  Please take all reasonable precautions.  Also, know that we pray for you daily. 

BIBLE STUDIES:  If you would like to study the Bible in preparation for baptism, please contact the Church Office.  These studies will be safely conducted through Zoom.

FLOWERS FOR THE PULPIT: If you would like to provide pulpit flowers for the church sanctuary on Sabbath to commemorate a birthday, anniversary, or a special achievement, simply contact the church office to make arrangements.

Dave Coggin’s Celebration of Life Service is today at 3:30 pm in the East Pasco Seventh-day Adventist Church.  Our church facility will be open for this memorial service.  This service will also be streamed live.  Those attending must wear masks and observe appropriate social distancing.  We have masks avail for you if you need one.  Please remember Sylvia and family in your prayers.  Thank you.

SABBATH SCHOOL MATERIALS: We have Sabbath School materials for ALL ages ready to be picked up at the Church Office.    We want to especially encourage parents to come and get SS materials for their precious children.  These items are great for family worships, etc.  The church office is open Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 10:00 to 3:00 pm.  We are even providing curbside pick-up services.  Simply call (813-782-2000) us when you are here and tell the ages of your children.

COMMUNICATIONS:  We are introducing a new communications system called Flocknote to combat isolation.  Please send the unique text EPSDA7 to the # 84576, to be kept updated on what’s happening in our church.  You will receive a link to complete registration.  Thanks.

STEWARDSHIP: Thank you VERY MUCH for your financial faithfulness.

HOLY SPIRIT: Starting August 15th Pastor Ray will begin a spiritually life-changing sermonic series called Knowing the Holy Spirit.  Simultaneously Pastor Ray is conducting a PRAYER MEETING series by the same title. This prayer meeting series will be a live service starting on Wednesday, August 19th at 7:00 pm in the Church Sanctuary.   There we will be able to have safe social distancing.  This series will also be streamed live.

Our friend Harry Rimer fell asleep in Jesus this past Wednesday due to a blood clot post-surgery.   Our hearts, thoughts, and prayers go to Mary.  We will all miss our dear brother in Christ till Jesus returns.

Respectfully,

Pastoral Staff
