We need people with Power Washers

March 31, 2020

WBChurch and friends,

We all are "hungry" to find ways we might be a blessing to our community while on lockdown like this. Someone just suggested this to me and I think is a great idea.

Please write me back if you have a power washer and are willing to use it to help local stores still serving our communities pressure wash their carts.

If we have anyone with one and willing to help, I will reach out to Shoprite, ACME and other stores still in operation in the Twp. and see if we can schedule times that would help them prevent the spread of the virus and germs.

If you have a pressure washer and want to help, reply to this email.

Post this request to your social media pages. Maybe we can get an army of washers and can set us a schedule that will help keep our community safe.

Sincerely,

Pastor DeLong

Joining WBChurch Connect Online with Zoom

March 31, 2020

WBChurch and friends,

I wanted to send you a link to a video that quickly shows you how to join on of WBChurch’s Connect sessions through Zoom.

The video starts with how to connect to a meeting through an email invitation. That is exactly how we do our meetings, so the end of the video you don’t have to worry about, just note the first part. This video is only a minute or 2 but is helpful for those unfamiliar with the steps.

At the end there are a number of other videos as well. You can select those there to learn more or click the other link below for all the videos that demonstrate the controls you have for yourself during the meetings.

I trust these links will be helpful to you as we all try to stay connected as much as possible.

Video for how to log into a meeting from an email invitation:

Link to website with other "How to" videos for you to learn:

Prayer Update from Norm, director New Life Island

March 28, 2020

Hello from NLI,

I needed to send this email to first, let you know that our April 4th workday has been canceled. We are hoping the May 2 workday won?t have to be canceled as well.

I also thought I should share some more information concerning my health. So, here it is.

Had another visit with my oncologist. My PSA is 597. The drug that we had thought to try didn’t pan out. It would have cost $10,000.00 per month and my Doctor didn’t think it would be effective for me.

We talked about doing more chemotherapy. My Dr. believes that the only chemo drug available wouldn’t work in my case. He thought I should seriously consider whether to do more chemo or not. I have decided not to do anymore chemotherapy.

What lies ahead for me is an increase in bone pain. When that comes we will do injectable radiation, it will help with the pain. After that we will focus on pain control.

Psalm 34:8-10
Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good!
Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him!
Oh, fear the LORD, you his saints,
for those who fear him have no lack!
The young lions suffer want and hunger;
but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing.

The Lord has blessed me greatly in my 61 years. I face the future knowing that my life is in His hands and my eternal dwelling place awaits. I hope you know my Jesus.

Yours for Christian Camping,

Norm MacKenzie

WBChurch Needs Your Help

March 27, 2020

Dear WBChurch and friends,

Now is your chance to do the easiest witnessing you have ever thought of:

  • No pressure
  • No chance of rejection
  • No fear of what to say or not say
  • No worry about offending anyone
  • No knocking on strangers doors
  • No Looks like you are crazy

Since everything is online:

  1. Go to the church’s Website, YouTube, or Facebook pages, click share to and use your preferred platform (personal social media stream/story, email, text, etc.)
  2. Post or share tomorrow and Sunday morning
  3. Ask friends to repost if they would like
  4. If you are into Facebook, start a "Watch Party" with your friends when we start streaming
  5. Share the LiveStream after it is done, from Facebook, Livestream or YouTube

No one will be upset, you can help get the word out.

You never know, someone you reach might be disconnected from their own church or doesn’t have a church and can still hear God’s Word on Sunday.

Witnessing at its easiest.

All you have to do is be willing and take just a few minutes to share. It costs and risks nothing, but presents opportunities for great eternal reward.

Will you help?

This is our time to shine.

Prayer request

March 27, 2020

Paul Wolfe’s Son’s sister-in-law, Teri, is not expected to last the night. She has MS (she was in a wheelchair at Ruth’s funeral), and kept getting infections. She’d come home from the hospital and end up right back. Her name is Teri and the family is asking for prayers.

Please keep Teri and the family in your prayers.

Tonight’s Mid-Week Connect

March 25, 2020

WBChurch and friends,

For those who want low "tech" options for tonight, you can go to https://www.wbchurch.org/listen.php at 6:30 for the Bible study portion of the event. The interactive portion will start at 6 using the links sent in the email yesterday. If you just want to listen to the Bible study, you can do so on the "Listen" page of the church website. Broadcast there will not start until the actual Bible study begins, so hang tight if it doesn’t start right away.

For the rest, note the instructions given for logging into Zoom for interaction.

WBChurch

"See" you all tonight!
