Souper Bowl of Caring. Starting January 1 and going to February 3, Superbowl Sunday, we will have our annual collection of soup and money for the Algiers Foodbank. Our goal is 100 cans of soup and $100.00. Watch for those specials on soup at the grocers.
Worship and Music
As most of you know, our wonderful Music Director, Heath Hatfield, has resigned. We will try our best to have music every Sunday. However, there could be Sundays that we do not have music. If that should occur, we will supplement with hymns that are familiar to all. Lisa Cairns and Sarah Schulz will be assisting us. However, neither of them are able to take on full time responsibility for music. If you know of anyone that may be interested, please, notify Betty with the information
Message from the SALM
As we near the end of the year, I want to begin by wishing everyone a Merry Christmas. This is a time of year that our hearts tend to be more open to the possibilities we see in other people, and that makes it the perfect time of year to put into practice that which Jesus commanded us. First, as we reflect on the gift that was given to us in the birth of our Savior, let’s remember to put God first in our lives. Love God above all other things. Next, love your neighbor as yourself. This second one is a bit harder for us to do, but when we get the first one right, the second one tends to fall into place. In fact, let’s all try to make a New Year’s resolution to love better. Let’s take the time to consider how we’d like to be treated and then go out and do likewise for others. It isn’t easy to do, but you don’t have to do it alone because the Holy Spirit will be there to guide you at every step. And who knows, maybe it’ll be easier than losing those ten pounds you’ve been resolving to lose every year. God bless you and your families as we enter a new year, and I look forward to all that God has in store for us in the future.
In His Service,
Our Presidents Message:
Love Lutheran Church – “Sharing God’s Love and His Promise for Tomorrow”
Grace and Peace…
Well, it’s finally arrived. My final council meeting as President. I can’t say that it’s not a welcomed event, but… As many of you know there will be a new council sworn in the first Sunday in January. Some new faces and some old faces. I will work diligently and offer my assistance during the transition period. Making everything as seamless as possible.
During my term we have accomplished a few milestones. One, rather large, is the fact the Love Lutheran Church now has the Deed/Title to our property. Meaning, no one can take it away. It’s ours to use as we see fit. Right now, I think we see fit in its growth and its potential. That’s not just a pastoral spiritual thing… though I hope most of it is. It’s in the service of our community. My prayer is that this continues. During the last couple of years, we’ve successfully held our second National Night Out event, supported several ministries including the Algiers Food Bank, Jo Ellen Smith Living Center, Young Life Westbank, Life Songs Radio and more. I am extremely pleased to be a part of all of these as I hope you are too. Just a few short years ago our little congregation was barely supporting two outside ministries. Now look at us. Is God good, ALL the Time or what?
My friends, with changes come new challenges. Let’s work together to minimize the speed bumps and smooth out the road ahead. I’d like to thank all the council members, our P.A. and our S.A.L.M. for their love and support. You all have God’s Blessings. My prayer is that God’s love and his Grace will sustain us and protect us in the new year. God’s Blessings.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from me and the Sanders/Schultz families.
In His Service,
Louis Sanders, Council President

The Nativity Performance presented by our young children was very beautiful and moving. The costumes were very good. Their enthusiasm for their roles was inspired. How wonderful to have a live baby in the manger.
Thank you for our Christmas gift. We absolutely loved it.
Also, is a picture of Brian giving the children’s sermon.
