Greetings and Welcome to Black Forest Lutheran Church!
Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
The season of Advent (December 2 - 23) prepares us for Christmas, not the kind of Christmas that comes from decorating the tree or shopping for loved ones. Advent prepares us for the Immanuel Christmas, the God with us Christmas - Jesus’ Christmas. Jesus’ Christmas is a for peace, hope and joy.
As we eagerly await the celebration of the birth of our Lord and Savior, our season of Advent can get rushed, hectic and downright stressful. Whether it’s the stress of shopping and planning holiday parties or it’s stress from struggling to heal from a broken heart, grieve the loss of a loved one or simply put food on the table, the season can lose its true message.
As disciples of the Living Lord, we are to minister to the least of these – those poor in health, those poor in spirit, those who mourn and those who hunger and thirst. Our focus this season of Advent is to help shine a little of Jesus’ light on those who are less fortunate or are suffering.
Please join us at Black Forest Lutheran Church to slow down, take in a deep breath of God’s love and light, lean into the goodness and mercy of Jesus and allow the great Comforter to bring peace, hope and joy into your Christmas season.
Be sure to check the BFLC Calendar for all the service dates and times throughout the holidays as well as other special events and happenings we have for youth and families.
