Pastor Glen's focus for his message for

this upcoming weekend:



There is a renewed sense of expectation among the disciples in the days after the resurrection. Surely it is now only a matter of time before Jesus brings in the long-expected Kingdom. And then he is sent to heaven, and they are left alone. Again. Are we ready to have the work of being his witnesses left in our own hands? It is not about whether we are qualified for the task. It is merely a question of whether we Truly believe that the Kingdom has already been won.

Faith Chests


The men’s group of First Lutheran has in the past built faith chests to give to individuals baptized at First Lutheran church to use in their faith journey. When the Covid pandemic started we were no longer able to build those chests. Several people have asked if we are going to resume building faith chests, to that end we are looking for members who would be interested in helping make faith chests again.

We have all of the equipment and components necessary and need helping hands to build, sand, stain, and attach hardware and finish the chests. We normally work 1 night a week for a couple hours, if enough interest is shown we could have 2 groups on different nights.

No previous experience building faith chests necessary, we have a few men who have experience building chests but we need more to continue with this wonderful project.

This group is very informal and is not limited to men, we would welcome ladies interested in working with wood, or helping assemble, sand, stain, etc.

If interested contact Dawn in the church office 402-426-4073 or Rick Ruhge @ rickruhge@gmail.com or 402-802-5898

Communion Update:


Thank you for helping with this accommodation for Pastor Glen: because it is difficult for Pastor to bring communion to members in the pews, if you find it physically difficult to come forward during communion, we invite you to pick up the communion elements as you come into the Sanctuary and receive them during the communion liturgy when the Pastor indicates.

Pastor Glen's contact information

 

Pastor Glen's email is pastorglen@firstlutheranblair.org and his cell phone number is (402) 740-6395

if you need to contact him.
