April 2016 Reflection

      from Pastor Steve


Dear Sisters and brothers in Christ,

 Happy Easter!  It was such a blessing to see so many of you on Easter Sunday and during the services of Holy Week.  I am very grateful that you continue to choose Christ Lutheran Community Church to be your church home.  During the past year and a half that I have been here, I have grown to love this congregation and I am glad that you do too!

Recently, I was visiting with a member of our congregation who can no longer attend worship on Sunday mornings because of his work commitments.  He lamented this state of affairs, since he also loves this congregation and longs to worship God with us.  We decided that we would start up a midweek service that would fit into his schedule.  So, beginning on April 13th, we will gather every Wednesday at 12 noon for mid-day prayer.  The service will last thirty minutes and will include the scriptures for the coming Sunday and a time of prayer.  Once the service is established, we will decide whether to add the Lord’s Supper.

I want to take the opportunity to remind you of another mid-week spiritual pick-me-up available here at Christ Church.  Every Thursday evening at 7PM, Dr. Peggy Kendrick and others gather for Bible Study.  The study of scripture is always helpful and Peggy will make you feel welcome, regardless of how much or little you know about the Bible.

Blessings to you in the coming month and may you continue to know the joy of the Risen Christ living in you.

Pastor Steve
