Church 2020


I do not go to church in town,
I go to church in my nightgown.
I do not want to be a crier
‘Cause I cannot sing in choir.

I’ve done that for 53 years
See me holding back my tears?
The next best thing for you and me

I do miss my Sunday School friends
My teacher’s expertise never ends.
Our leader is the best
Sure do miss those prayer requests.

Our church staff stands the test
As they minister at their best
Pastor, thanks for sermons that you give
As at home for Christ we live.

I can worship anywhere
At the iPad, see me stare
As a substitute it has worth
But I can’t wait to go to church.

Poem written by Carolyn Newman was read by Stan Allcorn, recently retired pastor of Pioneer Drive Baptist Church, during an online streaming worship service.
