We've seen a number of stories and posts online from you all detailing how you are adapting to working, worshiping, and being faithful stewards remotely. Thank you for these success stories!

We loved Susannah Bryant's infographic with tips about worshiping at home with children and she's letting us share it with you all. Plus, the people at Igniter Media have created free graphics to help engage your church during the COVID-19 pandemic.

These Days, a quarterly devotional, is offering free devotions for the month of April and two free coloring pages. See more details below. And the National Council of Churches is bringing you daily Scripture readings, prayers, and meditations for comfort and inspiration. Sign up for these daily devotionals and receive one email each day.

We've also seen the continued struggles you're facing. Last week we sent an email with free and reduced-cost resources. Most of these are still available and you can access them here. Today we're offering additional resources, many provided by our publishing friends, so keep reading for these.

Finally, we want to put you at ease about your purchases from us since we're aware that some online retailers are overwhelmed with orders for medical supplies and household goods and are putting other non-essential purchases on hold. All book and resource purchases through PC(USA) Store are still going out as usual.

Please feel free to share this email with all who will find use from it. If it's easier to share through social media, a link to this email will be posted on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
