Hi Abide Family!
Gosh, it seems like forever since we saw each other. I pray that all of you had a Merry Christmas, that 2021 is off to a great start, and that you have gotten back into your school routine!
I am excited to announce that starting this Sunday, January 17, Abide will begin meeting again! While I wish we could gather in person every week, with the Covid numbers continuing to rise and high percent positive rates, we will start 2021 meeting via Zoom on Sundays from 6:00-7:00pm. Please contact me to obtain the Zoom link and password.
Some events will require that we meet in person; this will be communicated through Google calendar, social media posts, Band, and weekly email updates. Below you will find our scheduled events for the remainder of January.
- Monday, January 18 (MLK Day of Service): Monday is MLK Day. Over the years, to honor Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., this day has become a day of service. This year Abide will join with others throughout our communities in service. We will gather at Trinity at 9:00am and serve our church family by assisting the trustees with some much-needed ground care. We may also have the opportunity to serve a family of our congregation. I will have more details about that as I receive confirmation. Please bring a water bottle and snack as we will work until noon. Lunch will be provided afterward.
- Sunday, January 24: Today, we will hear how Jesus calls the first Disciples (Mark 1:14-20) and how we can be Disciples of Jesus
- Saturday, January 30: Revolution 2021. Today will meet in person at the Youth Building starting at 6:00pm to watch Revolution 2021. Revolution is the annual statewide gathering of youth groups from across the SC Annual Conference. Social Distancing and mask will be strongly encouraged. Supper and snacks will be provided.
I look forward to seeing everyone!
