Note from The Pastor


Note from The Pastor


I’m glad Ted gave you an update on our church finances. I, too, want to thank you for faithfully and generously giving to Hanover Friends. You can give in person or through the mail or have an electronic check sent to the Church like we do.

Many of you watched some of The Return this weekend or the Prayer March that Franklin Graham organized. It’s so important that we are praying for our country and upcoming election. We will be offering 3 Sunday evenings to come together and pray, October 18th and 25th and November 1st at 6:30.

We’ve been dealing with COVID 19 since March with the shutting down of businesses and wearing masks. The CDC recently released death figures for the USA that showed that 94% of those who died from COVID had an average of 2.6 other comorbidities. In other words, they were very ill to begin with. Perhaps you’ve heard about the 6% who didn’t, but 94% is significant.

CDC also released survival rates for COVID by age:
0-19: 99.997%
20-49: 99.98%
50-69: 99.5%
70+: 94.6%

You should be careful, but don’t live your life in fear!
