Two Higher Things Youth Retreats!

Both retreats will be held March 26-27 at St. Paul’s Lutheran, Minot, and Immanuel Lutheran, Wahpeton.

Is church just a building? Is it where people come to pray? What is the purpose of the church and why should we even go? Do we go to church to give God our best, or do we go to receive God’s best in Christ via the Word and Sacraments? For more information or to register, contact Pr. Matt Richard for the St. Paul’s Retreat at pastor@anchoredminot.com, or Pr. Matthew Tooman for the Wahpeton Retreat at looktoxp@reagan.com.

Hope in Troubling times – Project 24

During the troubling times last year, it was easy for the Project 24 students and extended family members to become discouraged and less hopeful. It was therefore so important that they were able to receive the promise of God’s Word in addition to the food and provisions that were delivered each month. Many of the children’s extended families and caregivers had never heard His Word. As our partner church, the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Kenya worked to deliver the food and provisions each month; they could also begin to form relationships with these extended family members. These Lutheran pastors, evangelists, and deaconesses would often stay after the deliveries were made and use the time to deliver the Good News to those that were there!

They would pray together, read from the Bible together, and learn about God’s saving grace together. Even through the hardships, God’s love continued to be shared!

For more information about Project 24 or to learn about sponsoring a student through Christ’s Care for Children: Kenya, please contact Jennifer Hummel at 314-996-1326 or jennifer.hummel@lcms.org

Main Street Living Media Ministry – January 2021

“The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, his mercies never come to an end;they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.”

Lamentations 3:22-23

We are often asked what “New Year’s resolutions” we are making. While this may be helpful for some people, as Christians, we realize that each new day brings “new mercies” from the Lord, and each act of repentance and forgiveness brings a fresh start! May today and every day be lived in the assurance of such great mercy and fresh starts – all because of Jesus!

DECEMBER UPDATE

“She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name of Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.” Matthew 1:21. Herein lies our hope and the hope of the nations!

Main Street Living Media Ministry

“First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior.” And because God has established the Civil Government for the good of our fallen world (see Romans 13), it is vital that we as Christians actively participate in the structure of government under which we live. Therefore, we are to work for laws and elect civil representatives that will best represent God’s revealed will and the good of our neighbor. If you have not yet voted, you are encouraged first to be informed as a Christian citizen, then vote, and then continue to pray for those elected to serve as our civil representatives.

Main Street Living Media Ministry – September 2020 Update

WHAT AN IMPORTANT THING it is that we may sometimes take for granted! I am referring to the study, and prayer, and effort, and time that our pastors put in week after week (and several times a week during certain times of the church year) to craft a sermon message for us! As I prepare these monthly newsletter articles, I see the various sermon titles listed by the pastors. This causes me to anticipate what the message will be; but should also cause us all to remember to continually lift our pastors up in prayer, with thanksgiving!

Main Street Living Media Ministry – August 2020

JUST WHAT IS A CHRISTIAN? And, how does being one really differ from the other religions and moral codes of the world? This is the question that Mr. Brownly is struggling with – and which was keeping him from openly sharing his faith with others. My guess is that many within our churches will be able to identify with him. The “THIS IS THE LIFE” episode entitled “House of Sand” does an excellent job of answering this question! I encourage everyone who may have missed this episode to go to “mainstreetliving.com” and click on “Watch This Is The Life,” then scroll down to the “House of Sand” episode – posted June 26, 2020 – to watch this program! (You may wish to keep scrolling and watch other episodes too sometimes.)
