Thanks to our members and friends, Christ Lutheran raised $2,850 for the work of our food pantry! Thanks to ELCA World Hunger who will match our giving with a $500 grant for a total of $3,350. We’re all in this together, and grateful that we can continue to feed the hungry in our midst.
Singer-songwriter LEA visited Christ Lutheran Church in 2018 to perform on our concert series. She continues to make beautiful music and we wanted to share this short and uplifting piece called WHEN I RISE that she just released.
We’ll celebrate the gifts and challenges of life on planet earth this Sunday through hymns, prayers and preaching. We also invite you to view a film called The Human Element and join us later for a zoom discussion on ways we can respond.
Join us for worship on Sunday, March 8, 2020 at 10:30 AM. We’ll be continuing our Lenten Series, PORTRAITS OF COURAGE: FOLLOWING JESUS IN TUMULTUOUS TIMES. This Sunday we’ll focus on Jesus with the sick and worship will include prayers and anointing for healing.
This year our theme is PORTRAITS OF COURAGE: FOLLOWING JESUS IN TUMULTUOUS TIMES. We gather for worship at 7:00 PM in the Chapel. A simple meal, conversation and art making follow at 7:30 PM in the Fellowship Hall. To enhance our conversation, together we will read and discuss JESUS AND THE DISINHERITED by Howard Thurman.
Our beautiful “Christ the King” window is being removed this week so repairs can be made to the lead and glass. Andrew Goldkuhle, stained glass artisan, will be helping to restore this treasure. If you see scaffolding, know that the repairs are underway!
Join us for a pre-Lenten brunch featuring made-from-scratch pancakes, homemade applesauce, sausage, juice, dessert and beverages. A free-will offering will go toward replacing the floor in our lower level.
LET ME TELL YOU WHAT IT’S REALLY LIKE is a frank conversation on living with mental illness (in general) and bipolar disorder (in particular), both for the person diagnosed and those in his or her life. Based on a series of interviews, the intention of the work is to honestly present a broad range of experiences for those who are living with an emotional and mental disability. We hope it will lead to greater understanding for everyone who has to deal with all forms of this illness and strengthen the support of a compassionate community.
