Dear Friends in Christ:
“This is real love- not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins.” I John 4:10
I hope that you have read this passage of Scripture by this point in time. It is on the back of our Lenten “give away.” Every year I like to have something special to give our members to assist them in their Lenten journey. This year we are giving away THE NAIL. It has a small replica of a nail for you to carry or give to a friend. In addition, and more importantly, it has the following phrase on the front of the card:
THE NAIL…. DIDN’T HOLD CHRIST TO THE CROSS.
ONLY HIS LOVE FOR YOU AND ME COULD DO THAT!
It is my hope that you may share this love of Christ with someone this Lenten season, especially for Holy Week. As I always say there is someone that you know that can benefit greatly from hearing of the great love that God has for all of us. That person in your life may be a family member, a colleague, a friend, or perhaps someone you will meet! This little “give away” may be a nice way to introduce a person to Christ, or further someone’s spiritual life.
It is always a blessing for all when you share your faith. This world needs it, and so do you.
Our Lenten journey is quite early this year, as Easter is on March 31st. I do hope you will make every effort to worship. We have several special opportunities, particularly during Holy Week. Please be sure to check our worship schedule and be a part of this holy time.
Pastor Thomas J. Pranschke
