Pastor's Message

Many of you contributed to our Lenten outreach project this year which (through Lutheran Community Services NW) provided kitchen, cleaning, and health care supplies to refugees re-settling in our area.  LCSNW works in concert with LIRS (Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services).  For more information on how we can be the welcoming community that Christ desires us to be, check out https://www.lirs.org/.

I have attached the bulletin as well.

We pray for the families and friends of Dan Ursino (friend of Judy Scott and Stan Lind) and Ede Martinez (daughter of Jill Kerton) as they grieve their deaths. May Christ's peace fill their hearts in this time of loss and comfort them with the knowledge of life eternal in His presence.

We pray for healing and strength for Don Wells who is in Good Samaritan Hospital with pancreatitis that he will continue to improve and be able to return home soon.

We pray for Tom Schoop as he awaits tests to determine treatment for the cancer found on his vocal cord, that God's wisdom will guide the decision making. We also pray with thanksgiving for the "all clear" results of Pat Schoop's nuclear scan last Monday - praise the Lord!
