Wednesday April 8
Dear Immanuel-family members: In Acts 4, Peter is also speaking to us: “…Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified (by our sins) but God raised from the dead … Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.”
Nothing in all creation can take away from us the repentant~joy we have in the events of Holy Week and the hard-fought victory of our Lord Jesus Christ on the cross and thru the tomb!
As of today, we are hearing of a continuation in the ‘sheltering-in-place’ directive from our governor. So, we will continue to handle our worship services in the way we are presently doing.
That means that for our Sundays in April (April 12th, 19th, 26th)
we will offer our worship service ONLINE (Facebook live, 9:00am)
and invite you to join us from your home.
For Maundy Thursday and Good Friday, I will be recording a devotional (not live),
and you can watch those as you have time.
*If you do not have a Facebook account, you can try accessing public Facebook posts thru our Immanuel Lutheran website [www.immanuellutheranwalker.org] under the ‘media’ tab. We are also trying to make some posts on YouTube; you may search there to see if we have been successful!
If you would like to be at church to assist in producing our worship services, you will be expected to follow the guidelines for sanitary washing, and giving others extra space. If you have questions about this, you should call or email me ~ I’m keeping regular office hours.
You may have wondered what can be done with celebrating the Lord’s Supper during this time of separation. Biblically speaking, the Lord’s Meal is a holy ‘communion’. That is, a common meal shared by those who actually come together, are prepared in faith, and overseen by the pastor. Each of these aspects are absolutely essential to our faithfulness to the Lord’s institution, and we will not change that; just as we would not substitute cake and milk for the bread and wine. For any who do come together, we will keep our regular Communion schedule and practice. We look forward to the day when we can all freely come together again without fear and celebrate His Meal of forgiveness and strength.
Almighty Lord, although You have allowed this widespread illness, it is not to harm us but to strength our faith and trust in You for all things, and to call many to seek You and find their hope and peace in Christ alone. Grant healing to those who are ill, protect those who are caring for the sick, and give all of us an eternal and heavenly view of our lives. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
