Well, This is What…
Since Pastor Rob began his last newsletter article with “So, Now What?” I thought I would follow up with, “Well, This is What“.
It seems that the transition is complete. You should have received your letter by now that I will be serving Friedens for at least the next year. It is an honor and privilege for me as, after supply preaching for almost two years, I have come to love the people of Friedens very much.
It can be a scary time when you don’t know what is going to happen next. I know that I always have anxiety before a change. But, I am excited and looking forward to what’s ahead. We are doing some great ministry at Friedens. You can see that by all of the things going on in this newsletter and by how long it takes to do the announcements on a Sunday — that’s a GOOD ‘problem’. That means there is life here. I want to take a moment and thank all of you who work so hard to continue the work of Jesus in this church and in the community. I would name you all, but my over 50 brain means I will probably forget someone.
Someone said to me recently, “Well, you’re at the helm now“. Actually, I would like to think that God is at the helm, holding on to us with His loving arms and gracious heart. So, hang on folks, it’s going to be quite a ride.
In God’s Service,
P.S. You will see me sign many things this way, because I truly care, thus, I am Caring Karen.
The 3/15/2017 Community Lenten service at North Heidelberg Church has been cancelled. Please be safe. Prayers for all who must go out and work in the storm.
In addition the Crafters Workshop has been rescheduled to March 30th from 4-6 pm ( prior to the Social Ministry meeting)
Ever wondered what is in the attic at Friedens, well wonder no more. Some enterprising souls went on a scavenger hunt with pictures to prove what they found. With the Church being 120 years old it was hard to visualize what might be awaiting. And no we do not have bats in our belfry! What they found was interesting to say the least, and certainly not what was expected. See the pictures to satisfy your curiosity. Thanks to the group for sharing their trek with those of us who are not so brave or who could never have negotiated that ladder!
Welcome to our new website, we are still under construction but are making strides now! Please take notice to the facebook link, the google map with directions, and Pastor has started to blog! We look forward to posting more pictures, and adding History and Genealogy pages as soon as possible. We want to thank everyone for their feedback and patience as we are learning as we go. Have a blessed day!
Welcome to our new website. we know it’s still under construction, but it is being worked on “as we speak”.
There will be a lot of information including our calendar of events, our social media like Facebook, Google+ and more.
It will be a great way to stay connected with each other, our church & our community
