Treasurer’s Note (June 2019)

by admin

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.

For a number of months, a pastor, the Reverend Edward Doering, in Illinois, has been anxiously waiting 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 […]

Excerpts from NW District LCMS President Linneman’s December 2018 Financial Report to the District with updated financial figures as of 12-31-2018 The relationship between the District and the congregations isn’t all that different from the relationship between a congregation and its members.

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: […]

Message from Pastor Kiessling (April 2019)

by Pastor Richard Kiessling

Greetings in Christ Jesus Welcome to April.  One theory is that the name comes from an ancient Roman word that means to open.  The fourth month of the year was given the name April, because the buds of leaves and flowers opened. This month, half is Lent and half is Easter. We celebrate the death […]

Last Sunday evening I held a meeting in the Connect Center regarding our church’s evangelism. Around twenty people came and heard me give a presentation which included my personal and professional thoughts about it; we read an article together, watched a video from the last Northwest District Convention, and enjoyed an hour-long question and answer […]
