Devotional – Sept 22, 2020

One of the greatest comeback stories in musical history finished with this glorious vision that comes through - and in spite of! - a group of all-too-human but Christ-loved churches. If you're worried about the political future of our country, take 6 minutes with me and Revelation 4.

Devotional - Sept 22, 2020

Music today: 'Worthy is the Lamb that was Slain' from George Handel's 'Messiah'. Something I didn't mention is that despite his financial plight, Handel donated the proceeds of his very successful initial performance of 'Messiah' to free 140 people from debtor's prison. God has been using this music in similar ways ever since.

Devotional – Sept 18, 2020

We use the phrase 'open door' all the time in our prayers as Christians. Where does that come from? Spend 5 minutes with me - you may find something in common with the little church of Philadelphia in Revelation 3!

Devotional - Sept 18, 2020

Music Today: Pete Townsend, 'Let My Love Open the Door'. While old Pete probably didn't have this mind, these lyrics would be a good fit for Jesus' encouragement to the fearful church of Philadelphia.

Also: 'Light the Fire Again', Brian Doerkson.A praise song from the '80s, it's one of my favorites because it's one of the rarer contemporary songs that calls for personal repentance: 'Naked and poor, wretched and blind I come/ Clothe me in white, so I won't be ashamed.' This is based on Jesus' bracing call to the church in Laodecia.

Devotional – Sept 15, 2020

You and your (our!) church can believe exactly the right doctrine, but still be removed from Jesus' presence. Power and precision of doctrine, while important, mean nothing compared to this. Let's take five minutes together with Revelation 2:1-7.

Devotional - Sept 15, 2020

Music today: "First", by Lauren Daigle
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RbWQV3OiRqA

"Lesson of Love" by Ashley ClevelandLess well known than Ms. Daigle, but a remarkable testimony of discovering the matchless beauty of love from God instead of the world.

Cup EPC July 21 COVID-19 Worship Update

 

Dear Cup church family and friends,

Last night our church session met in a virtual meeting to discuss our plans for worship in light of the latest guidance given July 15 from Governor Wolf. The governor specifically exempted churches from his restrictions of no more than 25 people in an indoor facility and has not placed Beaver County (or any other county in Western Pennsylvania) back in a ‘red’ phase.

We also carefully considered all the feedback we received from those of you who have replied over the past month to our questionnaire.

As a result, the Cup church session adopted unanimously the following policy:

We will continue to meet for sanctuary worship at 10:30 on Sunday mornings.

We are requiring masks through the entire worship service unless a medical condition prevents this. If someone desires not to wear a mask for personal reasons, we can provide a location for seating where the service can be heard, but outside of the sanctuary.

We continue to offer the worship service online via our YouTube channel and on the website (cupepc.org). We encourage you to subscribe to our site by clicking here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCqJnJkbIN_wqRA5dXsSOXIA

On that page, click on ‘subscribe’ and on the bell icon in order to receive a notification when we post the worship service for you to view. We are currently working on ‘live streaming’ the service and have had some technical difficulties in recent weeks, but are working on solving those. Additional subscribers to our YouTube channel will help our processing time in getting the video up, so please subscribe – and tell your friends about us!

We continue to monitor the situation involving COVID-19 and aim at providing the proper balance of spiritual and physical care to our congregation and community. Our policy will be adapted as circumstances warrant.

We are thankful for God’s provision and your support in these challenging times and look forward to the time when all of us will feel comfortable and secure in attending worship together. Until that time, let us ‘fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith. . .so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.’ (Hebrews 12:2-3)

 

Cordially,

Pastor Scott
