Pastor’s Message

October 2018

We just celebrated our congregation’s anniversary!! Our theme was Looking Back, Moving Forward, Growing Deeper.

We looked back and now it is time to move forward. Don’t miss worship on Sunday October 7th!!  We begin our “Hooked on Mission” stewardship emphasis by receiving fish hook lapel pins and hearing a message about “Favorite Fishing Holes.”

Those who fish, usually have a favorite fishing hole, the location of which is a closely guarded secret!  How unlike people of faith who “fish for people.” We know about something very, very good—the Gospel—and we simply cannot keep quiet about it!

Telling the good news of Jesus Christ is an important part of what it means to be a people who are “Hooked on Mission.” The subsequent three Sundays will further explore themes of mission with a fishing-twist!

Make sure you are in church on Sunday, October 14th, when we will celebrate many of the mission initiatives that LCM supports.

Plan to attend the October 28th Fish Fry (fish and chicken bake).   Reservation forms will be sent to you in the mail and will be available on Sunday mornings so that you can reserve a place at the table.  Guests are most welcome to attend.

Begin to give prayerful consideration to what your 2019 financial commitment will be to the work of the Lord’s church known as Lutheran Church of the Master.

What a joy to be Hooked on Mission” as a community of faith reaching out in the name of Jesus Christ!

Shalom, Pr . Bob Albing
