Hello DBC Family,
Most of you probably received the Emergency Alert message on Thursday at 10am from the governor, requesting Alaskans to be help each other stay healthy. While he asked everyone to be willing to shift their plans and mentalities and be willing to think of others, as believers, we should always be thinking of and treating others as we do ourselves. Denali has been attempting to run with the best health practices, while also remaining open to as many folks as possible. The elders have discussed and prayed about how to proceed and we believe that what is needed is better resolve in following our guidelines at the Chapel. As the weeks and months have worn on, many of us have become more lax in our gathering together.
The requests that the governor is making is actually what we are already doing as a Chapel and we believe that we are respecting the governor in keeping our standards the same. All five of us elders are incredibly thankful that God is continuing to allow us to meet together in person to worship. Many, many churches in the States are either being shutdown from meeting or meeting while living with fines and legal battles.
For our service tomorrow, I will be speaking on the church of Thyatira from Revelation 2:18-29 and Jared will be giving the communion message. If you are unable to worship in person, we will be live-streaming the worship service on our website (livestream begins right after the welcome and prayer time since we don’t want private conversations to become public worldwide) and also transmitting it on FM 105.3 (if you would like to come to the parking lot and worship).
Hello DBC Family,
Winter Storm Warning! Doesn’t that just sound like a major headline? As I am writing this email, I am assuming that the roads will be passable for all of us to be able to worship in-person (but check your emails, Facebook or our website just in case tomorrow morning). I will be speaking on Compromise, and not the good kind of compromise. As humans, we have to compromise a lot in our everyday lives, but when is it wrong to compromise? Is it ok to bend our morals in order to fit the situation? Those are the questions we will be wrestling with tomorrow.
If you are unable to worship in person, we will be live-streaming the worship service on our website (livestream begins right after the welcome and prayer time) and Vimeo and also transmitting it on FM 105.3 (if you would like to come to the parking lot and worship).
Order of Service at the Chapel:
Welcome and Prayer: Ivan
Song: The Solid Rock
Song: Your Grace Still Amazes Me
Song: Let There Be Glory and Honor and Praises
Song: Living Hope
Message: Compromise, Ivan
Song: I Will Change Your Name
