Grace and peace in Jesus!
“He will be the sure foundation for your times,
a rich store of salvation and wisdom and knowledge;
the fear of the Lord is the key to this treasure.” (Isaiah 33:6)
God is our foundation and we are thankful for His blessing!
I want to provide a brief update regarding our church and school.
First, thanks to the hard work of our staff, and a dedicated team of school parents, church members, and students, the school is cleaned up and ready for classes to resume tomorrow, Tuesday August 26. We give thanks to God for all those who came and helped with this effort.
Secondly, the Sanctuary is still closed pending an inspection by a structural engineer which will take place soon.
But despite the situation with the Sanctuary, we are back in business! The confirmation information meeting scheduled for this Wednesday will take place (Gym, 7:00 pm). Choir practice resumes Wednesday evening as well (new people are welcome). As of right now, choir practice is scheduled for Room 5 at 7:30. So please assume that all items on the calendar are taking place.
Again, I want to assure you that we are being lifted up in prayer across our church body. This article was posted on the LCMS website today: http://blogs.lcms.org/2014/6-0-quake
Please let us know if you are in need of assistance. If you need help with cleanup, or just feel in need of encouragement and someone to talk to or pray with you, please let us know. If you are in need of basic necessities or need funds for that, let us know. Also let us know about damage you have sustained, because we may be able to help with funds for that as well. If there is any way that we can be a blessing at this time, please just let us know. (firstname.lastname@example.org;email@example.com😉
Keep praying! For the Lord is our foundation!
So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. (Isaiah 41:10)
