Pastor’s Message – 10/12/2020
Greetings my dear friends! We are entering one of the busy times of the church year, and just because of the pandemic we don’t want to be cheated out of all that the liturgical year offers to us this time of the year. To that end your Worship & Music Committee has been busy. What follows are the Sunday morning Sunday happenings, I know you will want to be a worship!
October 25 – Reformation: We will share a confession from 1892, a part of our Lutheran heritage, Pastor will speak to our Lutheran heritage from Martin Luther to 1892 and to the present. Please remember to wear RED!
November 1 – All Saints Day: The tradition at this service is to read the names of the saints while we ring a bell in their honor. This tradition will not change. Please remember to get the name of your loved one to the office so that they can be included in the list.
November 29 – The beginning of Advent: We will have a responsive liturgy when we light the Advent Wreath. For those who are worshiping at home we encourage you to purchase four Blue (the color of hope) for Advent and be prepared to light your candle at home during worship.
December 2 – The beginning of Wednesday in Advent worship. For the first three Wednesdays in Advent we will be offering quiet devotional time of worship. The last Wednesday in Advent we will be offering something called a Healing Christmas. This worship service is offered for all those who find this time of the year to be difficult. Perhaps you are missing a loved one, perhaps you are missing not being able to be out at the holiday gatherings, what ever it is, this worship service is for you.
December 24 – Christmas Eve: Of course things will not be the same, but we are trying to keep some of the elements of Christmas Eve Worship that we all love. We will be able to light our candles during silent night, if you at home please have a candle ready. Our Tree will be up behind the altar for all to see. PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING WORSHIP TIMES:
7:00 PM In person worship
8:30 PM In person worship if we run out of room at the 7:00 PM worship
10:00 PM will be our streaming worship.
Please watch for more details as time marches forward, but we wanted you to have a taste of what is coming.
SEE YOU IN CHURCH
