My brothers and sisters in faith,
Our journey through this Lenten season has begun. Lent is a time for reflection, prayer, and renewal. I encourage everyone during this Lenten season to slow down and take a moment to bask in God’s love. In our Lenten Bible Study, we are exploring the Latin term agape, which means goodwill, benevolence, and willful delight in love. In our course, we are exploring God’s love for us and how we can learn to love one another better than we already do, not only in our families and our churches, but in our community as well. We aim to love selflessly like our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ did. We are finding that this is not an easy task but one truly worth embarking on.
Before we know it, Easter will be upon us. Easter reminds us that there is always resurrection, new life, and new possibilities. In the coming months, I will be working diligently with council to renew and rework our church’s mission and vision. We will be exploring what we can do to revitalize our church in the coming months. We are looking for any ideas you may have that will help us with this task.
We hope to see you and your families in worship as we journey ever closer to Holy Week and Easter. There are many things happening. The Palm Sunday Parade will take place this year, which I know has been an event enjoyed by the community in years past. On Maundy Thursday we will have a skit as part of our worship service. There will be other surprises happening on Easter Sunday. So, come in and join us as we celebrate this sacred time.
Blessings and Prayers,
