A Message from Pastor Matt regarding COVID-19...
“Dear brothers and sisters, we can’t help but thank God for you, because your faith is flourishing and your love for one another is growing.” (1 Thessalonians 1:3 NLT)
Like the psalmist David said in Psalms 122, “I will be glad when they say, let’s go to the house of the Lord again!”
I speak for myself and the church staff in saying: there is an empty space in our hearts that only fellowship with you can fill! We miss you terribly, and we’re praying for your safety and peace during this difficult season. We are here for you during this time, so please feel free to contact the church office if there is an immediate need at (937) 289-9800.
There are a few things we would like to share with you today. All of our services are available online. Check us out on Facebook, our FOP Church app, or on our website at fopchurch.net. I am also trying to stay connected daily through Facebook videos on our Fellowship of Praise Church Facebook page. Please join us online and share the videos as well. You never know the testimonies that will come through this pandemic!
