From the desk of Rev. Kayla Roosa
I’m starting a daily text thread that you can sign up for. It would be a quick daily text that you could join free of charge that would enable me to write a quick prayer, Bible Verse or quote that we can be praying/pondering together as a community of faith. It is set up so that if you reply, I am the only one who sees it and could be a way for you to directly share prayer requests with me.
I know not everyone texts, but this is something that would be open to both the Bethany and Otisville communities (with hopes that it is more than just church members receiving it eventually).
A colleague that I was close to in Freeland who also received a call in another city did this and I loved getting them from him – it’s a tremendous blessing to see how a simple set of words are relevant in many settings. God speaks and the Spirit moves.
I’ll start sending a message on Friday July 1st.
My guide for sending these messages will be between 9am-9pm. I’m going to strive to send daily messages, but a day may sneak by me here or there without one.
How to sign-up:
Open a text message on your cell phone, send it to 81010.
Then in the body, type @bocpdp
Follow the instructions it gives you.
You do need to claim a role as parent/student.
It is a free service – you do NOT need the app if you are prompted.
IF you respond to a message, the message goes directly to me only. I will respond when I am able.
No one can see your phone number, not even me.
Still not having success joining? Let us know…maybe another church member can connect with you and help you get set up! Or…maybe it’s a good reason for you to join me for Tea at 10 on Tuesday!
