TREASURER’S NOTES – JUNE 2019

by Jill Richard

Yes, we are making one change:  The weekly bulletin will only mention our financial need of $6000 per week occasionally. You have spoken. But you have also read the truth.

A note from Pastor Don June 2019

by Jill Richard

For a number of months, a pastor, the Reverend Edward Doering, in Illinois, has been anxiously awaiting the opportunity to go to Oregon and to gather the scattered Lutherans in that state into congregations. But there never has been any financial possibility. Now, however, we are happy to report that a number of congregations in and near Chicago have raised enough money at a mission festival. In a few weeks, praise God, the missionary will depart for Oregon, to preach the Gospel of his Savior to his fellow Lutherans there. (from “God Opens Doors” page 15)

A Note from Pastor Don – May 2019

by Jill Richard

Preaching during the seven Sundays of the Easter season is my favorite time because I love to proclaim the risen Jesus—the things he said and did before he went up to heaven on Ascension Day. Luke records that just before he rose up into the clouds he said to his disciples, “Thus it stands written: […]
