Grace and Peace from God, our father, Jesus, our Savior and the Holy Spirit,

We hear in the psalms, God is our refuge and strength, a present help in time of trouble. (Psalm 46:1)

The corona virus is a real cause for concern for so many people. One thing for sure: God is our refuge and strength, and He is present to be with us, to comfort us, and to heal us.    In these times of testing, look to Him. God is our refuge, our strength and our help.         
 
I want to share a number of communications with you:
 
Public worship services at Hope are not being held at this time.   In addition to observing our Governor’s orders, we also want our members to be safe.   

Please join us for worship services on YouTube at "Hope Lutheran Levittown".    I am hoping you will not only participate yourself, but invite others to participate, too.   Let’s share the Hope!

Your own Bible is also a wonderful resource.   The Psalms are great.  The Gospel of John will bring you comfort as you hear about Jesus and His ministry.  The Word of God, the Bible, is awesome.
