Pastor's column


Celebration and Reflection. We made history once again! 104 attended the Celebration Worship services at Lutheran High last Lord’s Day. We met the “logistical challenge” with flying colors! Thank you to the following teams for making this special event hugely successful: Hospitality Team, Worship and Praise Team, Usher/ Greeting Team, all those who helped get the people to and from the parking lot, the bounce-house parent supervisors, and the clean-up crew.

The LuHi cafeteria worship center with stage worked out very well for us and it was an added blessing to have all the modern amenities the kitchen facilities, tables and chairs, and air-conditioning. I did hear someone nostalgically remark, “I sure do miss the tent though!” One serious disappointment was noted - due to the rain that came immediately after the worship, we were not able to go up-the-street to our new property and have the prayer-walk. Un-deterred, another person said, “I am still going by there in my car later to have that time of special prayer!”

Statistical Wrap to the Week. Enrollment for Kids Club was 34 with an average each day of 15 kids and 15 adult workers. We delivered 514 door bag publicity pieces to households in Pleasant Plains, Salisbury, Farmingdale Road area and Salem Estate Road neighborhoods. It was noted that we had several guests and a couple of prospect families in attendance for the Celebration Worship. During my remarks Sunday, I noted that, “These are exciting days for Springfield Southern. We have spent these past three years praying, planning, and engaging our new neighbors...visualizing our future and praying for God’s direction.” Thank you, church family for your support of these re-location strategies. We will continue to get acquainted and connect with our westside neighbors. Someday... we’ll be there!!
