God had Given Us a Spirit of Power.
“For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but
gives us spirit of power, love, and self discipline.”
2 Timothy 1:7
We hope and pray this finds you well, calm, and prepared for the upcoming weeks during this unsettling time as we attempt as a nation to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Walking with Purpose NJ Shore will not be gathering at St. Denis Church or St. Mark’s Church until further notice. We, at WWP NJ Shore, would like to stay connected as a faithful and prayerful community. We believe we can support each other through this challenging time by praying together and by staying focused on our bible studies.
We will continue with our programs as scheduled, amending our latest calendar, so we can finish our season and can keep in touch during this uncertain time. Please continue to do your lesson at home as you normally would. Your table leader will be reaching out to you to invite you to a weekly group conference call to discuss the lesson and pray together as a group for a 30 minute period. If you are unable to join the group, perhaps you can lift up everyone in prayer during that time period.
We look forward to getting together in person once our restrictions are lifted. Until that time, we hope that you can find peace and solace in staying close to Jesus Christ. Continuing with our small groups, reading His Word, attending Mass at home and praying together as a family are great ways to keep that peace and continue to be a light to others.
God knows all and He is in control. Trust Him, surrender all to Him and be that light in the darkness for others. Jesus, we trust in You.
With love and hope,
Debbie & Allison, Sheila, and Michele
