Like many of you, the Elders of Gateway have been grieved as we’ve watched events unfold in our world in recent weeks. As we struggle in the midst of COVID-19, we want to encourage you to shift your attention and remember the Holy Season that we are in. While life may seem chaotic and out of our control, the Easter story reminds us that God is the same yesterday, today, and forever. The gospel proves that his grace triumphs over all else, including our temporary anxiety.
In light of what is happening because of COVID-19, you are invited to join the Elders of Gateway and the entire denomination of Christian Reformed Churches across North America for a day to fast and pray this Good Friday, April 10th (starting Thursday evening after supper). We want to pray to the Lord in faith, trusting in the words of Psalm 10:17: “O LORD, you hear the desire of the afflicted; you will strengthen their heart; you will incline your ear.”
