Below is a message from Pastor LaVerne to our anointed, blessed JLAL congregation and friends:
Greetings & Blessings!
Prov 3:13 Blessed are those who find wisdom; those who gain understanding
It was conveyed last Sunday that JLAL will follow the laws of the land. The most recent ‘Gathering Ban’ is on groups of 10 plus. Effective immediately, all JLAL face-to-face gatherings are suspended through 4/30/2020. This includes, but not limited to: services, rehearsals, fellowships, evangelism, baptisms, etc. This is wisdom, not fear.
2 Tim 1:7 Fear not! For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
Starting 3/19 and every Thursday thru 4/30/2020, we will have Conference Call Prayer from 6:30 – 7:00 p.m. The number to call is 605.472.5634. The access code is 765852. Once you dial in, mute your phones. This is open to JLAL and the public. Elder Ken or another Elder will lead.
On Sun. 3/22, the goal is Facebook Live starting in between 12 noon and 12:15 p.m. Pastor LaVerne will execute this one. This is open to everyone with FB access. It’s a good time to join this site. Weekly updates will be conveyed once in place.
On Wed., 3/25, we will have Conference Call Bible Study from 7 – 7:30 p.m. Elder Thom will lead this one. The goal is to have something weekly on Wednesdays so more details to come.
