A day late and a dollar short! Sorry I did not get a chance to write to you all yesterday, but the day was over before I realized it. There is not a lot to report for the past week. Work at Calvary has been put on hold because of NYS PAUSE, but the fire committee continues to work for the congregation and friends of Calvary by working with American Eagle to get estimates for electrical upgrades and replacement work, with Lamb Studios and North Eastern Studios to get an accurate replacement value for the Ward window and with the insurance company to be sure our settlement is far and accurate.
Planning is in the works for a joint meeting of the Session, Trustees and Fire committee sometime this next week. The meeting will be taking place over Zoom so we can stay safe in our homes. The fire committee meetings have been held over Zoom for the past number of weeks and it has been wonderful to be able to see and communicate with the other members of the committee. Based on my experience with this, I strongly suggest you connect with others in your lives that you are missing using Skype, FaceTime or the like to help make a personal connection that just is not there through text, email or even phone calls. We are all suffering through this but we must be thankful that we can connected through technology. Just imaging how this would have been 100 years ago during the pandemic at that time. I know it is hard to find something to be thankful for right now but it really could be worse.
As far as the continued life of Calvary, you should have received a notification for Pastor J regarding the starting of a second Bible Study group. Meanwhile please remember to join Pastor J tomorrow at 9 am for the Sunday Morning Worship Service on FaceBook live and afterwards on our YouTube channel and our website.
Our special music this week is available on our website and our YouTube channel and is our wonderful musician Joe B on piano with Hallelujah. He posted this on FaceBook for Easter and.I was able to download it and add it our sites. Enjoy!
