This Week’s Need to Know – 01/21/2021

For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.  For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith, as it is written, “The righteous shall live by faith.” – Romans 1:16-17

THIS WEEK’S TEXT: Romans 5:1-5The Products of Suffering
Taught By: Mike Fry

We are looking for volunteers to help us answer phones at the church office during the month of February.  Time slots are open on Mondays – Fridays.  There is a morning time slot from 9:00 AM – 1:00 PM and an afternoon time slot from 1:00 PM – 5:00 PM.  All that is needed from someone is to answer phones and forward calls, take messages and forward them, and welcome people that stop in at the church office.  If you have any questions, please send them to Pastor Josh at or call the church office at (570) 893-8274, ext. 102.  If you can help, please click here and sign up for an available time slot today!

This season of pandemic has brought incredible challenges to us as individuals and as a church body as well.  One particularly difficult challenge is how to maintain the necessary closeness of community while maintaining appropriate caution and distance to protect us all from COVID-19, particularly the most vulnerable.  In last evening’s elder meeting, Kenny Hall spoke up with a great reminder that in times like these we need to get back to the basics of our faith.  One of those basics is to pray for one another.  This week, we want to challenge you to pray for one another purposefully.  Reach out to someone and ask how you can pray for them.  Pray for those that are dealing with loss in this season, those dealing with sickness, with anxiety and stress.  We may not be able to experience “normal” church, but we can continue to be faithful in the spiritual basics that bind us together and set us apart in Christian love.
