“Coronavirus” and “COVID-19” are likely the two most often heard words during the past month or two! My hope is that you and your loved ones have been and will continue to be spared from this pandemic. Perhaps these times have already or will provide special opportunities to minister to others in the name of Christ!
Also during this time of social distancing, we hope that in addition to your own congregation’s live-streaming and podcasts of worship services, that you’re included the TV and internet ministry of MAIN STREET LIVING TV to hear God’s faith-strengthening word! Please continue to share information about our LCMS “Main Street Living” media ministry with others. In addition to being broadcast each Sunday morning, you can view all archived programs anytime at www.mainstreetliving.com – then click on the link under the picture identified as “North (Fargo)”.
