Events & Announcements

Weekly Wanderings

Sometimes, Pastor Darla Ann's weekly video message is one of devotion, encouragement, and loving community. At other times, the message reflects on especially relevant aspects of our congregational life or cultural events that are shaping our spiritual and emotional well-being. Occasionally, the message is one of instruction, guiding us on the path of justice and truth, and helping us develop new tools and resources essential in our call to live as people of faith in the world today. Please take a moment and click below to view this informative video message from Pastor Darla Ann.



Vacation Bible School 2021

This year's VBS, entitled "Rocky Railway: Jesus' Power Will Push Us Through," is taking place once a week in July 2021 on Wednesday evenings from 6:00pm - 8:30pm. VBS is held outside, and opening and closing is held inside. We will be following all recommended national and local COVID-19 safety guidelines. Sign up here! If you have any questions, please contact the church office and we hope to see you there!

Outdoor Worship in the Chapel in the Pines

As the spring weather moves in and we experience warmer temperatures and gentle breezes, outdoor worship in the Chapel in the Pines will be available once again. Our weekend outdoor worship opportunities include: 

Sunday, August 8th, at 9:00am;  &  Saturday, August 21st, at 4:50pm; 

Sunday, September 12th, at 10:45am;  &  Saturday, September 18th, at 4:50pm. 

Also, the "Peace in the Pines" summer outdoor worship experience continues each Thursday evening throughout the warm summer months. The final service will take place on August 5th, and you are invited to an ice cream social immediately following that service. Some bench seating is available but please feel free to bring along your favorite outdoor lawn chair, as you are able, to ensure your comfort. Please speak, sing, and engage in worship and fellowship as you are comfortable when outdoors and we hope to see you there! Masks and social distancing are not required.

Update: Restoring Our Lord's House

Thank you for your generosity and your hard work in completing the remodeling project thus far. The mid-point in the capital campaign has been achieved. Phase 1 (paint, kitchen remodel & flooring) funds have been raised and the work is complete. The kitchen cabinets and countertops have been installed and the vinyl flooring has been relayed.

Phase 2 tasks (signage, furnishings, restroom upgrades, a/c units) are being completed as funding allows. The entry door 'Welcome' signage has been installed, the restrooms have been repainted, and the new bathroom vanities are in place. We are now purchasing furnishings for the narthex, commons area, and youth room.

Your continued physical and financial support is still needed! Please prayerfully consider making a donation to Restoring Our Lord's House. Thank you!

Lenten Worship

John Mohl Campership Fund Scholarships

Have you made camping plans for this summer? Consider signing up for a fun and faith-based summer program at Camp Wartburg in Waterloo, IL. At Camp Wartburg, children and families become immersed in God’s awesome creation where the traditional pursuits of sports and academics become secondary to the values of curiosity, tolerance of others, self-discovery and learning-by-doing. Worshiping under the stars before a campfire becomes an exciting, joyful experience. Learning new skills is a goal, but fun is the process. Campers may learn to shoot an arrow, canoe, swim, fish, play non-traditional games and so much more. Led by college-aged counselors who love the Lord and children, campers blossom under the supervision of positive role models, function in small groups and engage in discussions around Bible studies, values and respect for other people and nature. Camp Wartburg provides day and overnight camping opportunities for both youth and families. Please contact the church office at Our Lord's for more information about scholarships offered via the John Mohl Campership Fund for these wonderful, Christ-centered, summer camp opportunities!

We hope to see you there!

Dates include: Sun, August 8th at 2:00pm;  Sun, Sept 19th at 2:00pm;  and Sun, Oct 17th at 2:00pm.
