Pastor's Message
Dear Friends in Christ:

God gives. We receive. We give thanks. We share gladly. Everyone benefits.

That's the story of our lives. And that's the story of Christmas, too. God sends Jesus into the world. We receive him into our hearts. We give thanks. We share the love and invitation of Christ with others, so that all might have life in his name!

There are concrete gifts we can share, of course. Some of my favorites are: ELCA Hunger Appeal (Good Gifts), Lutheran World Relief, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services, Crossways Camps, Dr. James A. Albrecht Free Clinic, our Greater Milwaukee Synod's Outreach for Hope. All of these help demonstrate that the gift of Jesus is "Good news of great joy for all people!"

But then there are these equally precious gifts too; the gift of sharing your faith; the gift of inviting someone to worship, or Sunday School, or youth group, or a fellowship opportunity at church; the gift of offering to hold a friend or their loved one in prayer. And there's the gift of offering to spend some time, offer friendship, or be of service, because we've learned from Christ the importance of loving one another.

Have a rich, grateful, joyful, generous Christmas!

-Pastor Paul
