From the Pastor's Desk 4/22/2022
It's still Easter! These fifty days let us grow deeper in faith and go further in mission. There is still time to sign up for the "21 Days of Hope" - in fact, your 21 days begin when you text the word "hope" to 320-337-8331, so you won't miss a single day! Be sure to include your e-mail address, because that's how you will receive a daily message.
Wasn't Easter Sunday great? I was deeply moved by all our Holy Week services, and I hope you found them meaningful, too. Moving forward, this Sunday's in-person worship will be live-streamed on Facebook, and recorded for broadcast next week. Please let me know your thoughts on this new arrangement - feedback helps us serve you better. If you worship with us via WRAC or the web, you will see the Conference's worship service for the Second Sunday of Easter this week.
Whether you worship with us in person this week, or online next week, the gospel story takes us to Easter evening when Jesus appears to his disciples, and a week later when he returns to remove Thomas' doubts. (See the "week later" theme there?) It's a powerful story, and I hope you'll join us. See you in church, Church! - Pastor Jo Anne
