The Luther Monthly

“Our Lord has written the promise of resurrection, not in books alone, but in every leaf in springtime.”  Attributed to Martin Luther

Pastor’s Postscript

Spring is here and everywhere we look we see rebirth! The leaves are coming out, the flowers are blooming, and my lawn needs mowing.

April promises to be rebirth at Bethesda as well. One Saturday features friendly competition at our Game Night Fellowship.  Another Saturday has the Ladies Tea. And the spring book study for the Ladies begins in only 2 weeks!

Also, we draw very close to the end of our exposition through the book of Romans meaning we will begin a new book in less than 2 months. Our weekly Bible reading from the book of Acts also finishes soon and that spells new readings from a new book. The adult Sunday school class completes its study of parables this month as well and a new study will begin in there.

Yes, April marks a rebirth at Bethesda. If you are not part of all that is going on, why not plan on joining us in the coming weeks? The Game Night is April 9. The book study begins on the 12th. The ladies tea is on the 30th. And the other changes take place throughout the month.

If you are a member of our church, then be a member who is engaged with what the church is doing. Get involved! Use your gifts and abilities to serve Christ through our church.  There is so much we can do, so much we should do, so let’s get busy doing it!

May our great God and Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, richly

bless you this month!

Pastor Bruce
