The Messenger


We're a Community. 

Christian Fellowship is important as we gather and enjoy the company of fellow believers in Christ. If you are looking for a Christian community, these events are good introduction to the wonderful folks who make up our church family. You are always welcome to contact the church office for more information. Each week we publish The Messenger, a newsletter full of coming events, community activities and special requests for our church community.

This Week's "Messenger" Highlights ...  

Let us love one another - by staying home

It will be difficult to worship from home this Easter when we long to be together in community … but the message of Easter is love. God’s love for us; our love for others. Right now, the most loving thing we can do for our church community is to worship from home. We will be together in spirit and, when this pandemic passes, we will have a joyous reunion. 

Holy Week Special Online Worship Services - "Love, Light, Life"

There is no virus strong enough to prevent us from celebrating the Life, Death and Resurrection of our Lord! We invite you to worship from home as we commemorate this most holiest of weeks and walk with our Savior during the final days of His redemption story.

  • Maundy (Holy) Thursday - April 9 at 7:00 pm. This year we are focusing on the "new commandment" Jesus gave His disciples on the night He was betrayed ... a commandment to LOVE. Please prepare a paper heart - the bigger and more elaborate the better - and have it ready, with some pens - to use during this worship service.
  • Good Friday - April 10 at 7:00 pm.  In this traditional Tenebrae service we remember that Jesus is the LIGHT of the world and we commemorate this night by extinguishing candles as we hear His final words from the cross. Please have a candle ....or better yet, 7 candles .... ready to use during worship this night.
  • Easter Sunday - April 12 at 10:30 am. He is Risen. He is Risen Indeed! Jesus came back to LIFE and He brings us new life in Him. Be prepared to shout for joy at the Good News of our salvation.

 

 

Please pray for ...

  • Lutheran Bible Translators Mike and Kara Kuhn and their children who have returned to Canada on furlough,  while Mike takes extra degree classes... And for Martin and Joan Weber who will soon be finishing their work with the Kwanja people and preparing for their upcoming retirement.
  • Those affected by the COVID pandemic around the world, especially those working in health care and other essential services. 
  • Pastors, missionaries and teachers who are still working tirelessly to bring the Word of God to a world that is broken and afraid.
