Shepherd of the Valley and the Corona-virus

 

Updated May 23, 2020 9:00 am

 Brothers and Sisters, 

Sunday Worship!  We will worship remotely 10:00 AM at our Facebook page.  Note, you will need to scroll down a bit (it’s not pinned to the top) and it starts with announcements (which MAY run for a few minutes).   It will remain on the page for the duration of the week, and we are now also posting just the sermon.   This Sunday, the message is titled Easter Means Love that SavesWe will be live-streaming at  www.facebook.com/shepherdofthevalleyoceanside and here on our website, www.svlchurch.org  (See below.)  

Holy Communion is still  being offered; please contact the pastor for more information

Email Pastor Kolkmanallen@gmail.com for reservations

The two-part sermon series “What God Says in This Moment”, presented on March 22 and 29, are both available at our website to the right of this column (audio only) and will continue to be for the duration of this Covid-19 outbreak; you are invited to “review” and share them.

If you would like to review past worship services, you can find them on FaceBook. Current and past live streams can be found at

Bible Studies We now have three ongoing Bible studies up and running, all using ZOOM, which allows for full participation. The Women’s Study is on Saturdays at 9:00 AM, the Pastor’s Adult Class is on Sunday at 9:00 AM. And on the second Saturday of the month at 10am Men’s Group meets. Just email back for all the details on how to join in with us. (Kolkmanallen@gmail.com)

Pastor’s Bible Study!   It will be on Sunday at 9:00. We have room for 100.   This week’s study “Comfort in Grief”  learn about how Grief is a universal human suffering. It is a “heart-ache,” an inner suffering when something with which we’ve had an emotional attachment is taken away. “Grief happens when there’s a hole in our heart.” GENERALLY, the bigger the emotional attachment, the bigger the grief. 

 Keep in Touch!   We encourage you to contact members of our family!  Perhaps email or phone 2-3 each day!   Perhaps just to say “hi”  ….  maybe just to check in and see how they are doing…. maybe to ask for prayer requests….  The important thing is just to contact each other.   

Please send your Prayer Requests to me at KolkmanAllen@gmail.com and I’ll include them there, so we all can join with you.   

 Giving  Offerings may be mailed to us at Post Office Box 406, San Luis Rey, CA  92068 (it’s best not to mail it to our street address).   You also can now donate electronically.  We are using Zelle.  You can use your computer or smart phone to do this.  Zelle is set up differently depending on the financial institution; please refer to the following link for Zelle’s official instructions:  https://enroll.zellepay.com   Once an account is set up you’ll need to identify the account to send money to.  Please use svlcfs@outlook.com to identify Shepherd of the Valley Lutheran Church.   Questions?  Need help?  Contact us for more info at pastor@svlchurch.org. 

Finally, you can view the message and recommendations of our church body(https://www.psd-lcms.org/coronavirus ).   And of course, we all need to remember the mantra of this time:  wash those hands, don’t touch that face!

Isaiah 41:10, “Fear not, for I the Lord am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God.  I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my hand.” 

Pastor Allen

Our Lord’s servanthood reaches its ultimate limit.On the cross Jesus became the lamb who was slain for sinners. There he was wounded for our transgressions and bruised for our iniquities (Isaiah 53:4). There he revealed God’s love and became the living way into the “sanctuary” (Hebrews 10:19-20) that is communion with God the Father. Good Friday is not a funeral service for Jesus. It is a celebration of the triumph of the cross! In John’s gospel, always the appointed reading…
