Good day siblings in Christ,
What a beautiful weekend last weekend was with the baptism of Madison. Thank you all who could be there.
As we look forward, Easter will be here shortly. Worship services will be at 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m., with a light Easter breakfast at 9:00 a.m. It should be a beautiful service. Easter lilies can be purchased beginning this week through Palm Sunday. Maundy Thursday and Good Friday will each have a service at 7:00 p.m.
There was great news regarding the fundraising for Ukraine. Lutheran World Relief continues to increase the amount of matching funds. We have sent to LWR the donations we have already received which exceed $11,000, or when matched $22,000. We are still collecting and will send a second donation. Some have asked if they could give directly to LWR and the answer is, of course, yes. The most important part is helping people.
The other news is Larry has graciously volunteered to cover the music for the services when Phill cannot be present. We are so thankful to Larry for that joyous news.
