Holy Week approaching

Good day siblings in Christ,

There is a LOT happening in the next few weeks, so let me get right into it. Thank you to Eleanor who played the organ last week and Thomas who made the mac and cheese. So much talent. We are grateful!

Thank you all who helped give the council feedback based on the three options presented in my earlier note. I will be sharing with the council that 2 individuals voted for option 3, 2 families voted for either 1 or 2, and 14 others voted for option 1. Option 1 was to let Holy Cow! conduct a survey of the congregation to see where we are. This is part of the council’s goals for the next few years, so this was incredibly helpful.

Holy Week services are:
  • Palm Sunday, March 24: Worship 10:00 a.m.
  • Maundy Thursday, March 28: Worship 7:00 p.m.
  • Good Friday, March 29: Worship 7:00 p.m.
  • Easter Sunday, March 31: Worship 10:00 a.m.

There is a congregational meeting on April 14 after worship. There is a single agenda item and that is to call Lee Ann as our deacon. Her setting aside ceremony is on April 20 at 2:00 p.m. at St Peter’s Lutheran Church, Huntington Station, NY. It will be streamed online. There does not seem to be any limit to how many can come. I will already be there for an ordination at 10:00 a.m., so if any want to car pool, please talk to one another. There will be a celebration at the church on April 21 for her.

Finally, Bible study is continuing on Wednesday evenings at 7:00 p.m. on Google Meet. If you miss the live version, there is a lecture version posted on our Facebook and YouTube pages each Thursday.
