Pastor’s Letter

Dear Friends in Christ,

Belated Happy New Year! Can you believe it’s 2018? Where does the time go – it seems it was just January 2017! Although a little late, I thank this congregation for my Christmas gift. It was greatly appreciated.

I believe 2017 was a great year. We accomplished some good things and were more involved in the community. That’s good. What are we planning for 2018? Soon, hopefully in February, the Session is going to meeting with someone familiar with ways to re-furbish /remodel buildings such as our Fellowship room, kitchen, etc. If you have ideas for a couple projects we can be involved in, or things you would like to see happen at or around the church, please share that with any session member or myself. We talked about a few things at the Annual Meeting on the 21st, and we will keep you posted.

The first Sunday in February, the 4th, is “ Souper” Bowl Sunday, and I would like to see just how many cans of soup/chili, packages of Ramen noodles, etc. we can collect this year for the Food Pantry. We already have a good start and I know it will grow. I’ve noticed in several grocery stores, really good sales on soup, so now is a great time to purchase. The basket will be on the table on west side of Fellowship Hall, but you can’t miss it.

Can you believe that the First Sunday of Lent is only 3 weeks away? Ash Wednesday is February 14 (also known as Valentine’s Day), and we will have a service at 6:30 p.m. with Communion. During the Lenten Season I am going to be preaching on the Psalms. There is so much we can learn from the wisdom of the Psalmist, David. Also, during Lent, we observe Holy Communion each Sunday, so if you are willing to assist with the distribution of elements, please let Paul Forgas know, or there will be a sign-up sheet for sheet on the bulletin board.

Last year during Lent, I began during Sunday worship, to “un-light” the candles. We begin with all candles, including the Christ Candle, lit. Each Sunday we put out the light of 1 candle, until after Palm Sunday only the Christ Candle is lit. Then on Maundy Thursday that light is extinguished as well. Normally it would be done on Good Friday, but as we don’t have service in our church that day, we do it the night before. I can use individuals/couples to take part in each of those services. A sign-up sheet is on the bulletin board as well.

I am looking forward to the coming year and can’t wait to see what we accomplish this year, together. I know that God is going to inspire us to do great things. 

Blessings,

Pastor Sandi
