Ministry Goal for 2018

Let’s face the facts.  Assess our situation.  Set our short-term goals.

This is not a New Year’s resolution. Although, it is the perfect time to speak of goals and changes necessary to reach them. This is about our church’s present situation and future.

HAPPY ADVENT AND MERRY CHRISTMAS!

What can I give Him, poor as I am?
If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb;
If I were a Wise Man, I would do my part;
Yet what I can I give Him: give my heart.

Celebrating 500 Years of Reformation

RE:FORM, the newest approach to teaching youth and confirmation about our Christian faith sparked my imagination this summer as I reviewed the material.  * Yes, we have the same Bible to teach our children.

Lessons on Love

“Owe no one anything, except to love one another;” Romans 13:8a

Lessons on Love:

Pastor’s Pondering

Pastor’s Pondering about
Stopping long enough for Sabbath

 

“Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence.” The first line of Max Ehrmann’s poem, Desiderata (1929) caught my eye as I passed by the framed document.   It was a High School graduation present that stopped me long enough to find a peaceful place in my busy college life. 

Faith & Arts

It is said that “A picture is worth a thousand words”.  Visual arts range from Michelangelo’s Pieta to Tiffany stained windows to the movies and even clipart. Works of art interpret and reflect our faith story.
