Pastoral message (May 10, 2020)

How are you all doing? As of today, we have been on break from regular worship services for over 2 months. Trials such the ones we are going through now can strengthen our faith, so let us live each day with the desire to grow spiritually.

No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it. — 1 Corinthians 10:13

Let’s pray that we may meet again soon in person and worship together. Below is the song that we have enjoyed singing during offering times, and I believe we will be singing together again.

Meanwhile, please take all precautions–avoid crowds; prevent spread of the virus through close contact or speaking loudly; and ensure good ventilation in rooms.

I look forward to seeing each of you in time.

Shoichi Ino (Pastor of IBF)
