Find help and hope for times when it's hard to wait on God.You know you’re supposed to “let go and let God,” and you’ve tried. But what’s taking so long? Why isn’t God answering your prayers? In I’m Waiting, God, a four-week Bible study for women, Barb Roose invites us to explore the stories of women in the Bible who had to wait for God.
If you feel anxious, angry, discouraged or depressed during this time of universal unrest, this study will offer you practical next steps in your time of waiting.
To get the most out of this study, it is recommended that you use the workbook ($10). Let Debbie Abbott (email@example.com) know if you would like one, or you can order your own hard copy or E-book.
It’s looks as if we’re in for a busy storm season. Jim Pellot and Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA) need your help with the PDA Commuter Volunteer Team. Please see the link below for info: https://bit.ly/2ExPaPN
Ever want to share something about the Sunday sermon? Ever wonder what others have to say? Join a Facebook discussion group to prayerfully reflect together on what God is saying to all of us. Go to the link and complete the form to join:

After the Children's Sermon, Kindergarten through 5th graders will be taken out to the patio under the hospitality tent (depending on the weather) or to the Fellowship Hall. Children Pre-K and below will be escorted to the Nursery.
Children age 6 and older should wear their mask into the worship service, but will not be required to wear it during Children's Worship because they will be safely distanced. Pre-packaged snacks and ice water will be provided.
If you are not already doing so, we would like to invite you to begin a daily devotional. As your pastor, I strongly advocate this practice. Below are three links to various providers. “Our Daily Bread” has options to receive a daily devotional as an email or text, or you can download an app.

Grace and Peace,
Mayor Lenny Curry issued a mandate late Monday making masks mandatory in public indoor areas, unless you have breathing problems, are at a restaurant, or are under six years of age. In order to be in compliance, we are asking everyone over the age of 6 to wear a face mask. Thank you.
As the Preschool gets ready to begin a new school year, we ask for prayers for a safe, joyful and healthy start. Please see the website to register for any of our classes. We still have openings in most of our classrooms. We would love for you to share with friends and family, as we feel the love of our Lord shine through what we do. Students will resume classes on August 17, 2020.
Thank you for your abundant support and prayers during these uncertain times. We fed 212 clients and helped 21 families with rent/JEA in July. We continue to be blessed to serve our neighbors!
Current needs are: canned peas, corn, gravy, instant potatoes, Hamburger Helper, Jiffy cornbread mix, pop top pasta dinners, sweet potatoes, tea bags, laundry detergent, bottled water and small toiletries for the homeless.
This season is proving to be an active hurricane season. Make sure you are prepared.
As we are all aware these are unprecedented times and we as a church have to remain strong, prayerful and hopeful. Please help in donating toward the COVID-19 fund which will assist those who have been affected financially during this crisis. The idea is to have the funds available for our own members and the community around us. Donations can be made on our church website online at https://www.mychurchwebsitegiving.com/App/Giving/hodg4140174 or mailed to the church office at 4140 Hodges Blvd., Jacksonville, FL 32224. As always, your gifts serving God.....changing lives!!
