Sunday at 10:00 am
CELEBRATION is made up of real people living real lives and discovering the real love that God has shown us through Jesus Christ. Lutherans believe in the Triune God. God created and loves all the creation -- the earth and the seas and all of the world's inhabitants. We believe that God's Son, Jesus Christ, transforms lives through his death on the cross and his new life, and we trust that God's Spirit is active in the world.
We welcome all of God's Children, whatever their age, the color of their skin, the contents of their wallet, no matter whom they love, how they speak, and whatever their abilities or disabilities; for in Christ Jesus, we all are reconciled to God.
Samaritas Refugee Gift Cards
While you’re shopping at your local Meijer’s, Target, or Walmart, would you mind picking up a $25 gift card for these young people so that can receive Christmas toys they may not normally be able to get? They can be placed in the box located between the chairs in the Welcome area (as of September 3rd). Or, if you prefer, you could just slip $25 cash into the box, and I will purchase them for you.
On Sunday, September 10, 2023, Celebration will officially celebrate its tenth anniversary with a special worship and a free luncheon.
But first, a bit of history. On August 1, 2013, three congregations: Christ the King Lutheran in Livonia, St. Johns Lutheran in Redford, and Prince of Peace Lutheran in Westland, came together and officially became Celebration Lutheran Church. At that first congregational meeting, Reverend James Fogle was called to its first pastor.
On Sunday, September 10, Bishop Donald Kreiss will be the guest preacher for worship.
After worship, we are all invited to a catered luncheon and program in celebration of this anniversary. Who knows what other surprises there may be that day?! There will be a sign-up on the communications board later in August so we can get an estimate of the number of people to anticipate. Please plan on attending!
From the Pastor
September– Time for a new start
A NEW BEGINNING!
The Christian faith is about fresh starts and new beginnings. That is what the cross is all about. Jesus made that painful journey up the hill of Calvary, died on the cross and rose triumphantly over the grave in order that we might have fresh starts and new beginnings.
Faith is hoping against hope that what God says to us is true. What Abraham found out we find out too. We find that God never lies. That God always keeps his promises. That God is the faithful one--even if the fulfillment of God's promises may take a few generations - as it did in Abraham’s case….
I can assure you that if you will put your faith and trust in Jesus Christ you will find a new beginning for yourself, a new direction in life that will satisfy the thirst of your soul, that will give you joy and peace and purpose such as you've never known before.
See YOU in church!!
