Is There Church?


Dear Friends,

Is there church?  
"Where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there in their midst." - Jesus
"The Church is not a building.  The Church is not a steeple.  The Church is not a resting place.  The Church is a people." - Favorite Sunday School song my confirmation class likes to sing / shout at me!

So yes, there is church.  Call each other.  E-mail and facebook message each other.  Share your highs and lows. joys and concerns, laughter and tears.  Share the times and places where and how you see God at work in your lives and lives of each other.  Pray for one another.  Check on your neighbors and offer food, drink, shoveling, car clearing, etc.  So yes, rain (and snow) or shine, there's church.

Now will we assemble for weekly worship on Saturday and Sunday?  That's a very different question!  As of now, Sunday morning looks more hopeful than Saturday night.  However, you can find out as we get a little closer to the snow event by calling the church office 610-666-6577 (The answering machine will announce cancellations) or go to our website standrewslutheran.com where cancellation will be listed on the left side of the page.

Of course, even in the event that we have worship, you should exercise caution and common sense in your decision to journey out to join us.  Even if you have leadership responsibilities, we will adapt without you.  

So if you need to be on the roads, be careful out there. Otherwise, enjoy the beauty of winter.  Peace be with you.

In Christ's Service,

Pastor Mueller

Wow! does it mean that you keep records of the visitors at church?That's very good. Private money church loans are used to help churches that are in difficult situations. We are in need of that now.
