Following the guidance of Bishop Allende and after confirming with the Church Council, Living Lord Lutheran Church will suspend ALL worship services, events, and group gatherings until Palm Sunday, April 5.
As your pastor, I will periodically post devotions or commentary on the Scriptures for the week. I will be counting this as vacation time. Only in life or death situations am I permitted to visit families and individuals. Please call me for a visit at 330-465-6221.
We will continue to send information concerning preparations for Easter and the need for flowers and offerings. Please reply to these messages to volunteer and/or pledge offerings to purchase or donate to these special worship events.
We just received pricing for the Easter Flowers. They are as follows: Hyacinth $8.00, Lily $8.50, and Tulip $8.00. If you would like to purchase Easter Flowers, please mail in your check along with a note stating how many of each flower you want and if it is in memory or in honor of someone or to the Glory of God. The deadline to order Easter Flowers is Monday, March 30.
We are still collecting the food for the Easter Food Baskets. If you have items to donate, please drop them off at the church Monday through Friday between 8:00 and 11:00 am. All food items should be at the church no later than Sunday, March 29. Food Basket pick up is Wednesday, April 8, between 10:00 am and 12:00 noon.
If you need a Larry L. Maggiano, M.D., Memorial Scholarship Application, please call the office and we will mail that out to you. Applications are due Sunday, April 26.
These can by trying times financially for a congregation. Please mail your offerings to the church or drop them off between 8:00 and 11:00 am Monday through Friday. Our Treasurer still needs to pay our bills.
We pray for everyone and especially for our healthcare workers during this fragile time of waiting.
In Christ,
Pastor Bill
