Thanks to Pastor Jim Gorsegner for leading us in worship and sharing God’s Word with us today while Pastor Saatkamp recovers from his knee surgery.
This Wednesday begins the season of Lent, in which we ponder our Savior’s path to the cross to pay for our sins. Our Lenten worship begins with Ash Wednesday worship this Wednesday at 7 pm. We’ll celebrate Holy Communion at this worship service. As in previous years, we welcome our fellow pastors from our circuit to share God’s Word with us each Wednesday at 7 pm worship services. Our midweek worship services will be shorter than the average Sunday service, but God promises you it will be time well spent!
Sing to the Lord a New Song!
At our special voters’ meeting after worship last Sunday, the voters voted to purchase an Allen CF-9 organ from Evola Music to replace our current organ. Once we have a firm installation date, we’ll publicize it. Our plan is also to have a formal organ dedication during worship on Palm Sunday, though the organ should be installed well before then. More details will come as we get closer to the official dedication. We will continue to take donations toward this purchase up to the dedication. If you would like to give a special offering toward this purchase, please clearly mark the offering if you wish to put it in the offering plate during worship, or see any councilman or usher to donate toward the organ. The total cost of the organ is $31,029. Whatever we do not raise specifically for the organ will be covered by other funds already on hand. Look for a funding progress poster in the coming weeks.
