Dear Members of Faith Lutheran Church,
“And behold I am sending the promise of My Father upon you. But stay in the city until you are clothed with power from on high” (St. Luke 24:49).
In the last verse from yesterday’s Gospel reading, Jesus promised the gift of the Holy Spirit which He would pour out richly on His disciples. We celebrate the Spirit’s coming and the explosive growth of the Church on Pentecost.
In compliance with the updated Provincial Emergency Order that comes into effect for religious services today, Faith Evangelical Lutheran Church, Desboro will not be holding public church services starting this Sunday, April 25. As conditions allow, we plan to resume services after the order ends. That date would be May 23, Pentecost Sunday. Our services will continue to be recorded each week and posted on YouTube Sunday mornings.
While these measures are in place, be sure to take time for home devotions each day with your family. Draw strength from the Lord who pours out the Holy Spirit into our hearts with saving faith in Jesus as You read and meditate on His Word, the Bible, and pray for your needs and for the world.
Pastor will continue to be available by phone at the office and at the parsonage. Please call if you plan to visit him or would like him to visit you. He will continue to intercede in daily prayers before our gracious Lord for the needs of family, church and global community. For God has promised:
“I will never leave you nor forsake you” (I Peter 13:5b).
LUTHERAN CHURCH CANADA
As you enter the church, you are embraced by traditional Christian worship. Instead of experimenting and inventing new styles of worship, we are faithful to the worship of the early Christian Church, and the teachings of God that it confesses.
Worship is also liturgical. This means that we follow a set order of worship or liturgy that varies only according to the Christian year. Liturgical worship also makes full use of the space inside the church, various colours, as well as historic church garments to show the love of Jesus for His people, the Church.
Worship is also sacramental. In a unique way, God comes to us through visible means called Sacraments. God himself makes us a part of His Church by washing our souls clean of all guilt in the Sacrament of Holy Baptism. Those baptized members who are properly instructed and prepared receive the Lord's further strengthening and power through the Sacrament of the Altar, offered every Sunday. In these ways our Lord serves us with the life He gives so that we are able to serve others.
Pastor will continue to be available by phone at the office and at the parsonage. Please call ahead if you plan to visit him or would like him to visit you. He will continue to intercede in daily prayers before our gracious Lord for the needs of family, church and global community.
“Cast all your anxiety on [God] because He cares for you... standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings” (I Peter 5:7, 9).
