Weekly Contact – May 30, 2019

Hello there,

It is my great pleasure to announce that we have hired a new organist.  Marilyn Mark has held various music positions at Lutheran churches in the Cedar Rapids area, and is a member of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church as well as the American Guild of Organists.  She also retired from Linn-Mar as a French and World Languages teacher.  Her first Sunday is this weekend, and we are delighted to have her with us.

We have a busy Sunday coming up.  In addition to welcoming Marilyn, we have a baptism.  Kyla Schamberger, the daughter of Kristi and Jason Schamberger will be baptized.  We are recognizing our high school seniors and asking God to bless them.  And the Presbyterian Women will be presenting an Honorary Membership award.

In addition, I will be preaching on the story of Christ’s ascension into heaven, found in Acts 1:1-11.

While we are so thankful to have Marilyn with us, we continue to look for a half time Christian Education director.  If you know of someone, please let us know.

A week from Sunday is Pentecost.  Don’t forget to wear red.

Finally, the June First Press is available.  Download your copy by clicking here.

Stay in One Peace,
