Pastor’s Letter

Dear Friends,

Welcome to our Online Church Campus! I pray today’s service helps you take another step in your journey with our Lord Jesus Christ.

Today we conclude our series titled, “The Final Word on Fear.” I’ll be re-telling another true story of Jesus calming the fears of his followers.

Next weekend we launch a new series titled, “DIVERGENT: What in the world do we do now?” If there’s ever been a time of transition, uncertainty, confusion, and angst… it’s now. Though the quarantine has slowed down life for many, some feel like they’re wandering in the wilderness.

  • What do we do when the journey seems aimless?
  • How do we emerge from this global pandemic and financial crisis?
  • What in the world do we do now?

Thankfully, the ancient book of Exodus holds answers for us today.

Exodus is an adventure story par excellence. It features a cruel villain, an unlikely hero, overwhelming disasters, a spectacular deliverance, a long journey, a mountaintop experience, and a grand finale. The true, inspired story features unexpected setbacks and unpredictable delays, magic tricks and miracles, feasts and festivals, music and dancing, and many close encounters with God.

Mother’s Day, next Sunday, could not come at a better time. The series launches with the very first message titled, “Seeing God’s Grace Through Moms.” We can learn much about God from Exodus 1-2, but we also learn much about Moses’ mom.

Is there a specific friend or family member that you can invite to watch with you? Consider referring them to Fox 11 at 11 AM (channel 12 for some in our area). For a more full experience (interviews, more music, children’s content), ask them to join you via our website, our app, Facebook, or YouTube.

On the journey with you,

Matt Friend • Senior Pastor

High School Summer Camp Schedule Changes
Summer camp update: Due to COVID-19, Student Life (an organization that hosts beach camp) has canceled all camps in the month of June. High School students will now head to the Alpine Ministries (on the campus of Appalachian Bible College) for summer camp. The cost is $381. If you paid the $60 deposit for beach camp, the cost is $321. This includes all meals, lodging in the dorms, and 4 days of activities (rafting, paintball, ropes courses, etc.). Additional information and registration will be coming soon.

2 Tangible Ways to Help During the Pandemic

1. Frontline Medical Staff Encouragement Teams | 6:30 to 8:00 (AM & PM) each day per CAMC
Families or individuals will make signs and “cheer” on CAMC’s medical personnel from a safe distance as they begin or end a shift at the hospital. We want to help these doctors, nurses & other medical staff know that we appreciate them and the sacrifices they are making during this pandemic. Sign me up!
