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.
“The Clean Love Project is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to helping women and young girls feel clean, loved and empowered by distributing Clean Love Hygiene kits to those who are homeless, live in poverty and/or are survivors of domestic violence. “
We have the opportunity to collect items for ‘the Clean Love Project’ They will
assemble these items into individual bags for these young girls and women. The group then distributes the individual bags to women in need. There are also quarterly
opportunities to help assemble if that is of interest to you. The next scheduled assembly is in May.
For the month of March we will be collecting the following items:
> Wet wipes
> “Always” Ultra-thin feminine pads
> Roll on deodorant
Lent begins February 22nd with Ash Wednesday at 7:00 PM
Our mid-week worships are off to a great start, starting with the Holden Evening Prayer, then moving to the Gathering Space for a Soup and Bread luncheon (see the following article).
Maundy Thursday and Good Friday are being combined this year with a meal , a worship with communion.
Thursday April 6th, 6pm to 8pm.
Our conference Good Friday Service will be at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church April 7th at Noon.
From the Pastor
A new food ministry is starting that we are calling Jubilee Ministry. This ministry, will allow us to get out of our church buildings and into the community at large to serve food truck style food with dignity to those who may be housing and food insecure. This ministry will not be attached to any one congregation, however we are a 501.c.3 charity (I serve on the board as President). This new ministry is not meant to replace any ministries that Celebration is currently doing, but instead to enhance and add to our outreach to those who are in need. Elsewhere in this newsletter is a flyer for a fundraiser involving all neighboring churches in the conference that will be happening here at Celebration, Sunday, March 26th at noon. There will be a lunch provided made up of food truck style food, games and a cooking demonstration. Because this is a fundraiser, pre-sale tickets are $20, and $25 at the door. (We’re trying to make this ministry as self-sustaining as possible, but we have to start somewhere!) In the flyer is a QR code that will allow you to contribute via PayPal. I hope to see you there!
