What a year this has been! Churches have had to find new ways to hold services; pastors have had to change the way they visit people, conduct weddings and funerals and just about everything else they do. I hope that you have found some new and creative ways to minister in this changing climate.
One thing that has not changed is the need for ministries like Mercy. Just like you we have had to find different ways to do ministry. Young women are still searching for ways to deal with their pregnancies and Mercy is here for them. Fathers and mothers still need parenting education to learn how to raise godly children and Mercy is here for them. Mothers still need baby supplies for their infants and Mercy is here for them. And people still need to hear about a God who loves them and sent His Son to die for sin and Mercy is here for them. All of this and more is available at Mercy Ministries.
Our Board, staff, volunteers, and donors are involved in this ministry because they believe in the sanctity of life. God gives life and His desire is for each of us to live a life that reflects His glory. Mercy’s desire is to help people reach that goal.
Each January a Sunday is set aside to recognize the Sanctity of Human Life. In 2021 it will be observed on January 24h (some are observing it on January 17th). I hope that you will take a moment with your congregation to celebrate the value of life. As you do, can I ask you to pray for Mercy and our clients? We depend on the prayers of God’s people.
If the ministry of Mercy is new to you, please visit our website where you’ll find plenty of helpful information.
If you have never visited Mercy, I would love to give you a personal tour of our facility and introduce you to our wonderful staff. Just give me a call at 484-797-4809 and we’ll set up a time that will fit your schedule. Thank you for helping Mercy uphold the sanctity of life in a culture that doesn’t always value life the way God does.
God bless you as you minister the Grace of God,
Pastor Steven D. Buerer, Mercy Board Chairman
