Pastor Cheryl Matthews Report


Dear Friends in Christ:

I share this acrostic on this month of Thanksgiving. As I write, my mind is full of

Thanks for each and every one of you. My

Heart is full of love for God and this community of faith. I promise I will

Always remember you in my prayers. Let me remind you that

Nothing can separate you from the love the God in Christ Jesus. I truly believe

Kindness will help scatter any darkness among us. Trust that the

Spirit of Life will

Guide us to a future of hope. Believe that

Insights will flow as we work together on a long range plan and

Vision for Christ Lutheran Church as our

Imaginations are inspired by the Spirit of Life who will

Never fail us and will

Grant us all we need as we live, love, and serve together in Christ’s name.

As I write this, we just finished Reformation Sunday worship and the Confirmation of 10 wonderful youth who stood before the congregation and affirmed their baptism into Christ Jesus. It was a celebration of faith and love. These young people give me so much hope. Their faith statements were an inspiration! Thanks for touching my life Sidney, Samantha, Matilda, Carson M., Kylie, Sawyer, Autumn, Carson R., Connor, and Grace. You are loved. You are a blessing.

May God bless your families as you gather to give thanks for the many ways in which God blesses our lives. May God bless as we gather on Thanksgiving Eve for our ecumenical worship service. We have invited Mount Sinai to join us as well as Holy Family. Please, come and worship with us!

Pastor Cheryl Matthews
