We know that these are high anxiety, uncertain times in which we find ourselves. Staff at the synod are in touch with your presbyteries and determining ways we can be helpful. Know that our prayers are with you all. Let us be strengthened by the knowledge that we are buoyed by our faith even in the most difficult of times.
