A Picture of Bear Creek Camp

Dear Friends,

In between parish visits this week, I am preparing to serve as chaplain at Bear Creek, our Lutheran Camp in the Poconos.  Many of our children and youth at St. Andrew's have already experienced an incredible week up there this summer.  A larger number from St. A's will be journeying there this Sunday after church (returning the following Saturday).
 Please keep us, as well as the staff of Bear Creek who have been serving there since early June, in your prayers.  Also, know that your donations, whether through Benevolence in your offering envelopes, direct financial donations to Bear Creek, or material donations (to be posted in a future newsletter) go a long way toward making a week at camp possible for one of our young people or a youth with financial challenges from another congregation.  Also, you are helping the broader church as well since so many church leaders identify camp as a formative experience that called them into church leadership (certainly the case for your pastor).  Below is a link to a youtube video from Bear Creek Camp that will give you a better picture of the adventure that awaits.  

If you are traveling in the days ahead, may God give you safe journeys.  For those of you who are in the area, I hope to see you on Sunday.

Peace,

Pastor Mueller

The pictures are really nice. Our church is breaking off and it really needs reconstruction. But firstly we need to find a right lender for church mortgage on fair charges. We are taking help from complete church lenders directory.

Opportunities for Growth

Dear Friends,
    There are several learning opportunities coming up in week ahead that I wanted keep on your radar. - "Aslan on the Move" :  This Sunday (downstairs in Jerusalem Room)  at 9:30 AM we gather together for a presentation / discussion based on Christian themes found in the C.S. Lewis classic, "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe."   This gathering will continue through November 24.  Anyone from high school students to senior citizens are welcome to attend.  Join us and be enriched in faith.  - "Lunch Bunch Bible Study" - We gather each Thursday at noontime in St. Andrew's Hall to look a little deeper at the assigned bible texts that will be proclaimed the upcoming Sunday.  We provide coffee and printed out texts.  You are free to bring Bibles and a bagged lunch if you wish.  People who rarely take part in Bible Study have become a part of this group and have found it very helpful in their walk of faith.

An Easter Prayer

Holy and Living God, You continue to confound  our expectations and surprise us with your redeeming power in our lives.  Come among us, risen Lord.  Reveal yourself to us that we may know with confidence that nothing in all creation, not even death, can separate us from your love.  In Jesus' name.  Amen. A word of thanks to all of you who offered your hearts and hands and voices to a deeply moving Holy Week and a joy filled celebration of the Resurrection.  It was exciting to see an increase in attendance at special services throughout Lent and Holy Week this year, especially among those who are newer to our faith community. Many hearts were touched and lives were lifted up through the celebrations of this past week. We are truly blessed. Continue to pray for those who were unable to be with us on Sunday, the sick, the struggling, the hospitalized, the homebound, and the dying.  Pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ around the world, especially those who …

Lord's Prayer

Dear Friends,

This Sunday in worship our Gospel lesson is Luke 11:1-13.  In my message, I will be focusing chiefly on this rather strange parable of Jesus.  However, this is also the text where on e of Jesus' disciples says, "Lord, teach us to pray" and Jesus introduces what would become known as the Lord's Prayer.  While this will not be a primary focus on Sunday, I thought I would share with you below a reflection by Christian writer Brian McClaren bringing fresh meaning to a prayer that has become so familiar that, unfortunately, it can become rote and uttered with little meaning or reflection.  I hope that you will find this helpful for your own time in prayer.  And who knows?  It may even show up sometime in a worship service.
A Spoken Version of the Lord’s Prayer
This rendering of the Lord’s prayer uses unfamiliar words and phrasing to help us actually hear its message rather than lapsing into an auto-pilot recitation. You can use it in public worship by having …
