Purging Time

Author: Pastor Mitch Williams
August 27, 2020

One of the benefits of this pandemic season and sheltering in place has been an opportunity to take inventory and organize. Whether it’s cleaning out the garage, your closet, or any number of piles that may have accumulated in your home over time, what better time than now to get it done?

We have certainly taken advantage of the church closure to do some major cleaning and organizing. In addition to painting all of the Sabbath School rooms, each room has been reorganized, including the closets and drawers. Worn out, damaged, and antiquated items have been disposed of. New supplies and chairs have been purchased for each classroom. All in anticipation of when we safely return to indoor church and Sabbath School. (By the way, outdoor church begins September 12! Stay tuned for more details).

One of the final areas yet to be cleaned and purged is our church library. For over 60 years, the library has served our members. But the last decade has seen a slow and steady decline in demand, thanks to the internet. Today, the library room has become one giant storage closet. The time has come to close the library. However, before that happens, we want to give you a chance to scour the library, choose any book(s) you wish and add it to your personal collection. Next week, all are welcome to come and sort through the library. The library will be open Monday through Thursday next week 9 AM to 5 PM. If you wish to come in the evening, please contact the church office or a pastor and we will open the library to you.

As we order our homes and our church, let us remember that God is a God of order.

But everything should be done in a fitting and orderly way. 1 Corinthians 14:40
