A Message from Pastor John

“Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return.” Page 131 of the Lutheran Book of Worship, Ministers Desk Edition.

A pastor friend of mine stopped by recently, and we were talking about the up-coming Season of Lent and Easter. My pastor friend jokingly remarked about Ash Wednesday, when his wife comes forward to receive the ashes on her forehead, he says: “Honey I love you, but remember that you are dust and to dust you shall return, by the way, Happy Valentine’s Day.”

Just a friendly reminder, the month of February begins the Season of Lent, with the Ash Wednesday Service at 7 p.m. on February 14th. The Youth of the church will be serving stuffed baked potatoes before the Ash Wednesday Service. These are the dates in which there will be worship services for Lent: Wednesday, February 21st; Wednesday, February 28th; Wednesday, March 7th; and Wednesday, March 14th . There will be an evening meal served in the fellowship hall before each Lenten worship service. There will NOT be a service on Wednesday, March 21st. March 25th begins Holy Week with Palm Sunday, and there will be two services that week: Maundy Thursday at 7 p.m. and Good Friday at 7 p.m.

And of course, there will be two worship services on Easter Sunday morning (April 1st): at 7 a.m. (at the cemetery) with breakfast in the fellowship hall afterwards, the kids Easter Egg Hunt, and the 10 a.m. worship service in the sanctuary.

May you and your family have a blessed season of Lent.

 In His Service, Pastor John
