An Important Survey for Occoquan Bible Church
“Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go into such and such a town and spend a year there and trade and make a profit”—yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring.
What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes.
Instead, you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we will live and do this or that.”
-- James 4:13-15
Dear Church Family,
With the COVID-19 global pandemic, our normal routines have been profoundly disrupted and we see how fragile our lives are as so many succumb to the illness. And yet, even without the virus, Scripture tells us that our lives are like a mist that appears and then is quickly gone. Life is no less fragile or uncertain now than it has ever been since that fateful day in the Garden of Eden.
What has changed, though, is how we as pastors, and you as the body of Christ, minister to one another. For your pastors, our focus this year is on shepherding – how do we best care for the people entrusted to our care by the Lord? Little did we know how we would be stretched to do that in new and different ways in the face of a pandemic this year.
To help us identify needs and opportunities to serve you and one another, we have developed a brief survey.
Occoquan Bible Church Spiritual Care Survey
This survey seeks to identify those who might have financial or physical needs, those who are able to assist, how we can pray for you, and ways we can encourage you in your walk with Christ. You can also ask questions or provide suggestions at the end of the survey.
So please take a few minutes and complete the survey. If the Lord wills, we will use your input to determine how to best shepherd and care for you in the weeks and months ahead.
We love you, are praying for you, and are confident that our Lord will keep and sustain you.
For the pastors,
