Pastor’s Word

As we celebrate Epiphany, it is the natural inclination of many to look toward Lent. We prepare our hearts and minds for the death and subsequent resurrection of Jesus. For children (and even adults) this season can be filled with a mix of complicated emotions. And that’s ok. We can acknowledge those emotions, and pray together as we navigate the strengthening of our faith.
 
In some ways, the weeks after our Annual Meeting can feel like a fresh start for our Christ Lutheran community. The children and youth are planning many activities this semester for fellowship and formation. The Sunday School group will be meeting to explore how science can relate to stories they’re learning about in the Bible. The Sunday Cool & Youth group have the opportunity to catch a SLU basketball game. Our confirmands meet each week to prepare for Confirmation. We always welcome more helping hands and more participation from our young people.
