Praying for the families of Sandy Hook Elementary School

Our hearts and prayers go out to the families of Newtown, Connecticut, especially those who have lost a child.  Let us pray for God’s peace to be present with them even the midst of this terrible tragedy.

We will have a moment of prayer for these families during our Blue Christmas Service this evening (Dec. 16, 5pm).

Let light perpetual shine upon them, O God, our hope and our salvation.

Work begins on “The Upper Room”

Some of our members have begun working on renovating the room at the entrance to the office area of our church. New carpet has already been installed- and now the floor boards are being painted and installed.

We look forward to having this room as a beautiful place for prayer and reflection in our building- stay posted for more details to come!

ELCA responds to Hurricane Sandy

Video message from Bishop HansonDear sisters and brothers in Christ,

God’s word of promise is given to all who are facing uncertainty, damage and disruption following Hurricane Sandy and its subsequent storms.

That word of promise is Christ is with you always. With Paul we can say, “If one member suffers, all suffer together with it; if one member is honored, all rejoice together with it.” (1 Corinthians 12:26)

As members of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), we remain in prayer, responding generously and working tirelessly to rebuild lives, congregations and communities.

We are not doing this work alone. Through ELCA Disaster Response, we are joining with our congregations, affiliates and other partners in our shared commitment to restore communities. As we have shown in past disasters, we stay until the work is done. That is the ELCA’s commitment.

Please continue to respond with prayers, generous gifts of time and money, and the commitment to a sustaining presence. Visit ELCA Disaster Response at www.ELCA.org/disaster for updates, downloadable bulletin inserts, worship resources and ways to make contributions online.

Thank you for your prayers and generosity as we respond together and do God’s work in Christ’s name for the life of the world.

In God’s grace,

The Rev. Mark S. Hanson
Presiding Bishop
Evangelical Lutheran Church in America
