Beloved of God, This weekend, the Fourth Sunday of Easter, is traditionally known as, Good Shepherd Sunday. We read the Twenty-third Psalm and are reminded that the Lord leads us besides still waters and along right paths. (Psalm 23:2-3) Our part is to listen faithfully to where the Lord is leading us, trusting that even though we walk through the darkest valley, we will fear no evil; for the Lord is with us. (Psalm 23:4)
Holding that promise close to our hearts, we continue to listen to the Lord’s leading through those in authority, government leaders, bishops, doctors, scientists, and in prayer. As we have listened to their recommendations, we do the best we can to care for all who visit The Lakes Lutheran Church and keep them safe. It’s for this reason, that the congregation building will remain closed to all church and group gatherings until the end of the month of May.
This decision has been made by listening to the federal and state government phased plans and from the recommendation from our synod leaders, Bishop Hutterer and the Grand Canyon Synod council.
It is my hope and my continued prayer that we will resume some in-person church gatherings and group meetings when Nevada enters Phase 2 of the Nevada Roadmap to Recovery. We will have more details as what those in-person gatherings will look like in the days moving closer to the beginning of that phase.
In the meantime, we’ll continue to hold fast to the promises we have in Lord. We’ll gather online, through Facebook Live, YouTube, and Zoom. We’ll spend time in God’s Word and in prayer. And we’ll look forward to the day, when we can gather again.
Pray for me, your pastor, as I pray for you. God has this.
Peace in Christ,
Pastor Ron Poe The Lakes Lutheran Church
