Be the Church Today: Thankfulness and change…
Just over two years ago, we welcomed Pr. Rob Nelson among us as our Visitation Pastor. I want to take special care to express my deep and heartfelt appreciation for his ministry among us. We always experience change, and this year has seen extraordinary changes in so many areas of our lives and world, on a large scale and in small ways, too.
Pastor Rob has been a light among us and pointed always to Jesus as he tended our elders and shared sweets with our younger members. I am grateful for his partnership and heart for those who are most vulnerable, particularly our neighbors who are hungry, as he advocated for the Friends of Friends Against Hunger and the Backpack program. He and Darlene have also been faithful stewards of camping ministry in their support of Luther Crest. Well done, good and faithful servant!
Thank you, Pr. Rob, for showing us how to “Be the Church Today” in so many ways!
Pastor Rob and his wife Darlene will be under the canopy between 11-12 on Sunday December 6th. Drive by and wish them well!
These masks have been donated for LSS-MN’s drive for 20,000 masks by Christmas for their clients. In addition to adults who are participating, WAFL Kids are decorating white cotton masks obtained through a Thrivent Action Grant.
Please remember to get your Face masks in soon. We need them be December 10th!
So far, we have 622 masks ready to deliver! We should have another 109-200 when we hit the deadline.👍
Due to Covid-19 related concerns, Our Men's Fellowship Christmas Food Basket Ministry is making some appropriate adjustments to this year's program. Instead of filling and delivering boxes of food to families in need, we will be sending them gift cards for Larry's Foods. We also hope to be providing several of these gift cards to families in need through our partnership with the Battle Lake School. To support this project, please mail your check to First Lutheran Church at 505 W Holdt St. Battle Lake MN 56515. Indicate on the memo line "Christmas Food Baskets" Any funds collected in excess of our costs will go to other charities or projects of the Men's Fellowship. We wish you a safe, healthy, and blessed Christmas.
Your Men's Fellowship
