Brothers and Sisters,
Streaming Services As you know, the pandemic has worsened in our county and we have slipped into the “purple” level. As a result, the Governor indicates that Christians worship online or perhaps outside.
We now have three ongoing Bible studies up and running, all using ZOOM, which allows for full participation.
The Women’s Study is on Wednesday at 5:00 pm. “Anxious For Nothing” by Max Lucado
Pastor’s Adult Class is on Sunday at 9:00 a.m. We begin a new study called “Christianity 101.” We will meet outdoors and also live online. This study, written by yours truly, was designed as a “follow up” for youth Confirmation and also as the adult confirmation and membership course. It’s an excellent introduction or a great review of the basics of Christian doctrine from a Lutheran perspective. And a good opportunity to ask those questions (by far, the best part of this are the questions and perspectives participants bring to the discussion).
This may serve as a Confirmation class for those never confirmed in the Lutheran church. That includes some of you. Perhaps you were baptized or received First Communion but never Confirmed. This course can serve for that.
Hope you’ll join with us – in person or online! More information or how to join email pastor at email@example.com
The Men’s Group meets on the second Saturday of the month (“Blessed is the Man”, a journey through the Psalms.) Just email back for all the details on how to join in with us! (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Please send your Prayer Requests to me at email@example.com and I’ll include them there, so we all can join with you.
Did You Know? We have a church library. It’s at the back of the chapel. Lots of great books that are biblically and theologically sound, books that are informational, inspirational and helpful. It’s on “the honor system.”

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.”
