What’s Happening at First Lutheran
Palm Sunday Concert
Please join us for our annual Palm Sunday Concert, on Sunday, April 13 at 3pm at First Lutheran. Enjoy performances by soloists Gus Barnes, Jr, Susan Platt, Dennis Parker and organist and director Dennis Jon Wolfgang. New to the program this year are performances by soloist Dennis Parker, who has performed with the Florentine Opera Company, and our special guests Pastor Ron Nunuk the Chin Carson Baptist Church Youth Choir.
Enjoy some inspiring music for Holy week, including selections from Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “Jesus Christ Superstar”. Learn about the Chin people, Burmese refugees who have resettled their lives and families in the United States due to persecution and religious intolerance toward Christians in their homeland. Founding Senior Pastor Ron Nunuk will discuss their journey as a church and their homeland.
The reception following the concert will be a multi-cultural event featuring food from many cultures.
A free will offering will be accepted. Proceeds benefit First Lutheran’s handicapped accessibility fund, improving access for members and visitors to our food pantry. Donations of non-perishable food items accepted for our food pantry.
Family Movies are held the first Saturday of each month from 1-4. The event is free and lunch is served at 1pm.
Finding Your Joy
Mark your calendars now for this interesting spiritual retreat on Saturday, April 5, from 10am-3:30pm at The Landmark-Senior Living, located at 1441 S. 68 St (south of Greenfield Ave.) We’ve lined up several fun speakers and musical entertainers Ann Elizabeth and Matt Nagel, who have interesting stories to tell about what brings them joy in life. Pre-registration is required because lunch is included. The registration fees, minus expenses, will be donated to the food pantry. We’ll also have several “prizes” that we will be giving away as part of benefit drawings. Registration fee is tentatively set at $20, which includes lunch, coffee and water. Soda will be available for purchase. If you are interested in being a presenter, would like to donate a prize contact First Lutheran at 414-476-4664.
Prayer Cube Sale
We are offering to you, a three cube set with six prayers on each cube–evening prayers, meal prayers, and every day or friendship– to help add some variety to your home prayers. A donation of $3 for each cube, or a special price of all three cubes for $10 will help cover the cost of the cubes. They will be available after services and in the office during the week.
Welcome to First Lutheran
Dear Friends in Christ
I greet you with this word from Matthew 28:19 & 20 – “Go and make disciples of all nations baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you.”
These are the words of Jesus recorded at the very end of the Gospel of Matthew. Then Jesus adds “And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” These words give us our purpose as a church. We are to go and tell others of the wonderful news of Jesus as long as we are here on this earth. And Jesus has promised to be very near us and help us every step of the way.
I invite you to come and worship our risen Lord Jesus Christ with us and join into the work of telling the world that there is a Savior.
