Messiah Evangelical Lutheran Church

Pastor’s Message

“Mary Magdalene went and announced to the disciples, ‘I have seen the Lord’; and she told them that he had said these things to her.” 

John 20:18

Alleluia! Christ is risen!  
Christ is risen indeed! Alleluia!

In the gospel of John, Mary comes to the tomb of Christ expecting to find his lifeless body. Instead, she has her own encounter with the risen Jesus. From the empty tomb she goes to tell the disciples that she has seen the Lord.

I too have seen signs of resurrection life in and through the people and ministries of Messiah Evangelical Lutheran Church: youth volunteering and equipped to be assistant ministers for worship; holy conversations with Confirmands in ecumenical ministry with First Presbyterian Church; Bible study groups both in person and online; new engagement with our neighbors; food and other assistance for multicultural families. There are many ways Easter is made real through us as a  congregation! 

Thank you for being Easter people, for living the resurrection and for sharing the good news of Jesus Christ!  I’ll be looking for more resurrection moments from   Messiah Lutheran Church! I invite you to share with me the resurrection moments you experience too by calling me at church (308-382-3471), in person, or by emailing me at pastorstevenne@gmail.com! Christ is risen indeed!

In Christ,
Pastor Steven
