Holy Week-Easter Schedule

Dear Friends in Christ -

posted by Shannon Vietmeier

Yesterday our reading revealed that God is ready to be God for us in matters of eternal salvation and daily bread. As Jesus was hanging on the cross, he made sure that his mother's earthly needs would be satisfied, and then he declared that salvation was won for the whole world. Too often we wander through life thinking that God is in charge of the big stuff and we can fret about the little things. 
To be a Christian, we place our entire trust in the Lord Jesus Christ for everything. We are utterly dependent on him...no matter how big or how small the need. 
As we make our way through the last days of Lent, take time to relinquish control of the little things, even as you have learned to trust in God for redemption through his Son our Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ!

Blessings on your week!
Pastor Culynn

Midweek Lenten Series

posted by Shannon Vietmeier

In our series, Invited to the Banquet of the King, we will follow a peasant man who has been invited to the banquet of the King.  Unworthy and unsure of why he has been invited, the peasant meets several citizens of the Kingdom, who help him make sense of his invitation, the journey, and the banquet itself. Services are held at 2:00pm & 7:00pm.
March 21- The Chief Steward: Sacrament of Holy Communion

Dear Friend's in Christ-

I don't know about you, but this Lenten season has been breezing by so quickly for me. As I mentioned to a member yesterday, "Soon it will be Easter, we'll turn around twice and the new baby will be here!" (Due June 4). 
In just a few weeks, we will be coming upon the Holiest of Weeks. While I know that this is a popular time for Spring Break trips and all sorts of other possibilities, I pray that each of us will consider our plans and make worship a priority. You are invited to see, hear, and contemplate the depth of God's Love for you revealed in the story of Jesus' suffering, death, and resurrection. There is no greater event in history! I look forward to the rest of our Lenten journey and our observance of Holy Week this year. 
Lenten Blessings - 
Pastor Culynn
