Greetings and Welcome to Black Forest Lutheran Church!
Each new year rings in a fresh sense of hope. That hope is typically accompanied by a series of resolutions aimed at making us healthier, wealthier and wiser. Most of those resolutions lose steam quickly as the realities of life set in and sabotage our best efforts.
The season of Epiphany, the celebration of God becoming one of us through the birth of Jesus, is a time to reflect on the one true gift we have been given. Given. Not earned.
There is no better way to launch this new year than to discover how we can live our best lives through a relationship with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Matthew 2:1-2 points out that Jesus came to be the Lord of ALL of us, near and far.
In the time of King Herod, after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, asking, “Where is the child who has been born king of the Jews? For we observed his star at its rising, and have come to pay him homage.”
Just like the Wise Men, we are encouraged to seek Him, share our gifts and worship the King.
In January we will be providing several new opportunities to deepen your faith, expand your knowledge and socialize with fellow Jesus followers. Please check out our calendar for Bible Studies and Events. https://www.bflchurch.org/calendar.html
I invite you to join us and grow along with us.
May God’s grace abound in 2019 and always,
Pastor Ken Hohag

Holy Families! is an initiative of the North American Lutheran Church provided through a generous grant from the Thrivent Foundation, in honor of the 500th anniversary of the Lutheran Reformation (1517 AD to 2017 AD). Produced by Sola Publishing, this special initiative will include a number of Lutheran discipleship resources for families and congregations.
