     Sunday announcements

     March 22 • 2020 
     Fourth Sunday in Lent 

    Elder of the month: Tracy Akins

    Passionate worship 

    ■ The Swift Church session met Monday, March 16. During an hour of open discussion of the latest safety precautions regarding the coronavirus, and the theology of gathering as a community to worship, the session voted to cancel all church-related events for at least the next two weeks, through March 29. The session will meet again on March 29 to revisit this decision.

    ■ We will offer worship online. This Sunday and March 29 at 10:00 there will be a worship service posted on and on the Swift Presbyterian Church Facebook page. If you have not already “liked” our Facebook page, please do so now so that you will be ready for Sunday. This service can be viewed at a later time, if needed.

     — 10 a.m. and later — 
    Worship service online only

    Fanny J. Crosby hymn sing

    This month marks the 200th anniversary of the birth of prolific hymn writer Fanny Jane Crosby. Sunday’s worship will include some of her songs and stories about her life of faith.

    Food pantry 

    Our food pantry will be open on Wednesday, March 25. Distribution is from 10 a.m. until noon. People’s food needs do not stop. Church family is always invited to use the food pantry when you have a need. We are here to help you in whatever way we can.
