Communication Update #4 – Saturday, September 9 2:15pm

Dear IRPC Family & Friends,

So much has happened with this storm since Labor Day…5 days ago. Wherever this e-mail connects with you, I hope you and your family/friends are doing well. A colleague of mine who shepherds a congregation on Orlando, impacted me today as I watched him on Facebook prayer through the 46th Psalm. May God’s word speak into your life right now…

Psalm 46
1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. 2 Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way, though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea, 3 though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble at its swelling. Selah 4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy habitation of the Most High. 5 God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved; God will help her when morning dawns. 6 The nations rage, the kingdoms totter; he utters his voice, the earth melts. 7 The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress. Selah 8 Come, behold the works of the Lord, how he has brought desolations on the earth. 9 He makes wars cease to the end of the earth; he breaks the bow and shatters the spear; he burns the chariots with fire. 10 “Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!” 11 The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress. Selah

My prayers for everyone continue and will remain in the days ahead. Stay safe!!! My goal will be to send out a brief update on Tuesday the 12th . Let me know of any specific ways I can be praying for you all…And of course, we as a church family will want to care for one another and our community in the days, weeks and months after the storm.

Let’s be reminded again, TODAY, of the words of Jesus – “Peace I leave with you; My peace I give you…Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”

In Christ’s Hope and Peace,
Pastor Bryan
Proverbs 3:5-6
