Health Happanings:
Staying Fit and Handling Stress During "Stay-at-Home" 
- By Amy Taylor BSN, RN

Pastor Malcolm and I have been able to do a few video updates for the church family
recently so for those who haven’t seen the video, these are the updates with links to some
resources that I covered.

Our topics today were handling the stress of our current “stay at home” orders with the
challenges of working from home, kids home from school, layoffs, finances and concerns of
contracting the coronavirus. It is a lot!

Our bodies are wonderfully made to equip us to manage stress, but we are not made to
live in a continued state of stress. Our bodies produce a number of hormones which eventually
release corticosteroids. Similar to steroid medications such as prednisone, they are good for
short term needs, but if those levels remain elevated too long, they can lead to inflammation,
increased insulin resistance and other health conditions.

Meditation and relaxation techniques are a good way to diminish stress. Some smartphone “apps”
that I like are Abide, Calm, and Centering Prayer. All have free versions. Daily devotions are
another faith-based approach to minimize stress. Try reading something when you get up in the
morning and also prior to bedtime. Two books that I enjoy are Jesus Calling by Sarah Young and
Wake Up to the Word by Joyce Meyer, but there are many good options to choose. I also like a
website that is www.livingcompass.org for inspirational devotions.

Another ideal way to decrease stress is through exercise. The best exercise is any that you like
and will continue to do. In times like this when we can’t go to the gym or play other group
sports, there are workouts to be found online, you can use those exercise bands that most of us
own if we ever did therapy. Attached you will find a sheet for exercise and also one for 101
Ways to Decrease Stress. Stay tuned for some workouts for specific age groups soon.
Finally, we discussed that some newer symptoms of Covid-19 could be a loss of taste
and/or smell. In the elderly population, the common fever may not be an early symptom, but
increased fatigue and body aches are. Also, if you or someone you have been in contact with
has symptoms whether or not they are being tested for the coronavirus, you should self-
quarantine yourself for 14 days unless it is confirmed that Covid-19 is not the cause of the
illness.

Be safe and stay healthy!
Blessings,

Casting down their golden crowns around the glassy sea;
Cherubim and seraphim falling down before Thee,

Who wert, and art, and evermore shall be.

Holy, holy, holy! though the darkness hide Thee,
Though the eye of sinfulness Thy glory may not see,
Only Thou art holy; there is none beside
Thee Perfect in power, in love, and purity.

Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!
All Thy works shall praise Thy name, in earth and sky and sea;
Holy, holy, holy! merciful and mighty!

God in three Persons, blessed Trinity!!

Unison and Silent Prayers of Confession

Forgiving Lord, we have fallen short time and time again. You have given us your word, both in scripture and in Son, you have promised us your presence, both in Spirit and in community, and you have graced us with your kingdom, both in teaching and in service. Even so, we neglect, ignore, and reject your purposes for us. We do not love what you love. We do not embrace what you embrace. We do not defend what you have called us to defend. Have mercy on us, O God of all ages past and all hope for years to come. Forgive us for what we do and what we fail to do. And with your gifts, promises, and grace, continue working in our lives that we might receive full life in Jesus Christ, now and forevermore. Amen.

Response: Guide Me, O Thou Great Jehovah | vs. 3

When I tread the verge of Jordan,
Bid my anxious fears subside;
Death of death, and hell’s destruction,
Land me safe on Canaan’s side;
Songs of praises, songs of praises
I will ever give to Thee,
I will ever give to Thee.

Message: Comfort in Times of Loss (John 11:17-37)
Pastor Malcolm Davis

Hymn: What a Friend We Have in Jesus

What a Friend we have in Jesus,
All our sins and griefs to bear!
What a privilege to carry
Everything to God in prayer!

O what peace we often forfeit,
O what needless pain we bear,
All because we do not carry
Everything to God in prayer!

Have we trials and temptations?
Is there trouble anywhere?
We should never be discouraged:
Take it to the Lord in prayer!
Can we find a friend so faithful,
Who will all our sorrows share?
Jesus knows our every weakness;
Take it to the Lord in prayer!

Are we weak and heavy laden,
Cumbered with a load of care?
Precious Savior, still our refuge–
Take it to the Lord in prayer!

Do your friends despise, forsake you?
Take it to the Lord in prayer!
In His arms He’ll take and shield you,
you will find a solace there.

Offering: Christians, We Have Met to Worship | arr. Brant Adams 
Michele Meulenberg, flute

Doxology: 
Praise God from whom all blessing flow;
Praise Him, all creatures here below; 

Praise Him above, ye heavenly host: 
Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost. Amen.

Hymn: How Firm a Foundation

How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord,
Is laid for your faith in God's excellent Word!
What more can he say than to you God has said,
To you who for refuge to Jesus have fled?

"Fear not, I am with you, O be not dismayed,
For I am your God and will still give you aid;
I'll strengthen you, help you, and cause you to stand
Upheld by My righteous, omnipotent hand.

"When through the deep waters I call you to go,
The rivers of sorrow shall not overflow;

For I will be near you, your troubles to bless,
And sanctify to you your deepest distress."

Sunday, May 31  – 11:00am

Thank you for joining us in worship this morning! Here are the lyrics to the songs for our 11:00am Contemporary Drive-in service. You can tune into the service at 89.5 FM on your car radio.

The King is Here

The earth is awakening,
The mountains are trembling,
The oceans hold their breath
For this holy moment.

The heavens stand to their feet
As life like a river springs
Up from a thirsty land;
Collision of God and man.

And "Holy, Holy" is the cry
Of saints and sinners reconciled.

Chorus:
Sing, sing it out. Let the earth resound,
For the King is here, the King is here. (oh)
Shout, shout it out for the hope we've found,
For the King is here, the King is here.

The darkness is breaking now,
Drowned out in a sea of stars.
Your Church is rising up
With fire that can't be stopped.

And "Holy, Holy" is the cry
Of saints and sinners reconciled.

Chorus

And "Holy, Holy" is the cry
That floods the heavens, fills the skies.
From the earth unto the throne,
Eternal praise to Him belongs. (REPEAT)

Chorus (2x)

Oh, the King is here, the King is here.
For the King is here, the King is here.

At Your Name

At Your name
The mountains shake and crumble.
At Your name
The oceans roar and tumble.
At Your name angels will bow,
The earth will rejoice,
Your people cry out.

Chorus:
Lord of all the earth, we shout Your name,
Shout Your name;
Filling up the skies with endless praise,
Endless praise.
Yahweh, Yahweh,
We love to shout Your name, oh Lord.

At Your name
The morning breaks in glory.
At Your name
Creation sings Your story.
At Your name angels will bow,
The earth will rejoice,
Your people cry out.

Chorus

There is no one like our God;
We will praise You, praise You.
There's no one like our God;
We will sing! We will sing!
There is no one like our God;
We will praise You, praise You.
There's no one like our God;
We will sing!

Chorus 

Search Me, Know Me

Search me, know me,
Try me and see
Ev'ry worthless affection hidden in me.
All I'm asking for
Is that You'd cleanse me, Lord.

Chorus:
Create in me a heart that's clean,
Conquer the power of secret shame.
Come wash away the guilty stain of all my sin.
Clothe me in robes of righteousness,
Cover my nakedness with grace.
All of my life before You now, I humbly bring.

Search me, know me,
Try me and see.

Glorious Day

I was buried beneath my shame.
Who could carry that kind of weight?
It was my tomb 'til I met You.

I was breathing but not alive.
All my failures I tried to hide.
It was my tomb 'til I met You.

Chorus:
You called my name,
(and) I ran out of that grave!
Out of the darkness into Your glorious day!
You called my name,
(and) I ran out of that grave!
Out of the darkness into Your glorious day!

Now Your mercy has saved my soul.
Now Your freedom is all that I know.
The old made new, Jesus, when I met You.

Chorus

I needed rescue. My sin was heavy,
But chains break at the weight of Your glory.
I needed shelter. I was an orphan.
Now You call me a citizen of Heaven.
When I was broken, You were my healing;
Now Your love is the air that I'm breathing.
I have a future. My eyes are open, 'Cause when...

Chorus
