LERT continues to look grow with new members being added every month! Training and certification is done through our parent organization known as LCC (Lutheran Church Charities). Now that winter is basically done (we hope!), many opportunities have presented themselves for tree removal and limb trimming.
Future trips continue to be evaluated/assessed as many disasters come through. Flooding and wind/storm damage continue to be the most requested deployment opportunities. Please consider this ministry to help people in time of need. We need some people who can do physical work… some to do skilled work… some to do tedious work… some to do emotional support… but most of all, people who want to share the love of Jesus in a tangible way.
MEND (Mothers Enduring Neonatal Death)
MEND has been established to care for and minister to moms and dads who have lost children through miscarriage, stillbirth, or even just after birth. A team of four ladies provide a place of hope and healing for those mourning the loss of precious little ones.
Meetings are held the first Tuesday of every month, 7pm, at St. Peter Lutheran Church and is led by Sara Hintz. Anyone is welcome. Loving People isn’t a job, but a joy to share the love Christ has for each of us… no matter how little… or how much we’ve been through!
Vacation Bible School
Preparations are already being made to point kids to the Truth of who Jesus is… the Lord and Savior of all! This year’s theme is The Incredible Race: One Family, One Race, One Savior reminds us we are all God’s children. The kids, along with the adults, will go on a global scavenger hunt to find clues of God’s plan for loving each of us! VBS will take place June 17-21, 2019. We would love to see the kids as well as teen and adult volunteers too! God bless!
Good Friday Family Services
“Love is… Enough!” This is our Good Friday Family Service theme this year as we complete our journey to the cross in God’s love! Our service is geared to helping kids understand the magnitude of what Jesus had done for all of us. In fact, the service is really for everyone to attend. “Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends.” 1 Corinthians 13:4-8a
