I want to thank everyone who was able to come to one of the cottage meetings that were held a few weeks ago. We had great conversations and input. I hope and pray that people left each meeting with an awareness of our current financial and volunteer needs as well as a great sense of hope that Christ Lutheran Church and Preschool is a valuable asset to this community and to the Church of Jesus Christ. Together, I am confident that the ministries of Christ Lutheran will continue to change people’s lives near and far.
It was our hope that people would take the information gathered at the cottage meetings to the Lord in prayer, whether during the prayer vigil or during one’s own time of prayer. If you would like to share with either of the pastors or council representatives how God spoke to you during the prayer vigil, please contact one of us. A word from the Lord is definitely worth discussing!
For those who responded to God’s call by donating their time, talent, or treasures—we are so very grateful. Financial donations will allow us to proceed with finalizing the purchase of a new digital organ system, new furnaces, and to complete the playground. Thank you so very much to those who were able to help our dreams of a new organ and playground become reality. Please watch for further details about these in the near future.
We are still in need of people to step into leadership roles on the church council or to help with ministry needs, especially to keep our building and grounds looking beautiful. Please prayerfully consider helping out where you can. Check the bulletin board across from the mailboxes for details.
Again, thank you for taking the time to come to a cottage meeting and to enter into prayer on behalf of our ministries and for the future of Christ Lutheran Church and Preschool. You are a blessing!
Yours in Christ,
Pastor Sue Beadle Lead Pastor
Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say Rejoice. Let your gentleness be known to everyone. The Lord is near. Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4: 4-7)
