WELCOME

Dear First Lutheran Family and Friends

Greetings to you in the name of our Lord, Jesus Christ!

We are in a time of transition. Normally, this time of year, we’re focused on the transition from the spring to summer … and summer brings even more transitions the end of the school year to summer vacations, new jobs and schools following graduations, and maybe moves to new homes in new places. As we make these, and many other transitions over the summer, we ask God to help us as we all navigate these times of change. God, Father in heaven, have mercy on Your people. Help us, restore us, grant us Your peace and strength as you prepare us for new stories in our lives. Guide us and protect us in all we do in service to You and each other. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

As our calendar flips from one season to another, we also flip the church calendar to a new season – the Season of Pentecost. After the "bright red fire" of Pentecost Sunday, we enter the “green season” – that long period in the church year where the paraments are colored green as we celebrate the “life of the church.” As He gathered with His disciples for the Last Supper, Jesus promised, “I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you. But if I go, I will send him to you … When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come.” (John 16:7,13) The season of Pentecost begins with Pentecost Sunday, the celebration of the arrival of the promised Holy Spirit. And the Holy Spirit is with us even today ... He calls, gathers and enlightens us, the church of all believers – bringing life to God’s church on earth.

In this season of Pentecost, whenever you see the color green or hear the living word of God, give thanks to God for the gift of life … now and in eternity … that you have on account of your faith in our Father’s love for you as expressed through His Son, Jesus Christ.

In Christ’s Love,
Pastor Jim
