Greetings and Welcome to Black Forest Lutheran Church!
We give thanks for the abundant rain we recently received. The fire threat is diminished and once again families can gather around a fire pit to enjoy hot dogs and s’mores before they start back to school later in August.
Ephesians 5:20 - giving thanks to God the Father at all times and for everything in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
We are pleased to welcome our new Youth and Family Ministries Director, Jeremy Ryan, to Black Forest Lutheran Church. Jeremy recently moved to Colorado Springs from Longmont with his wife Dasia and son Ronin. Jeremy’s deep background in education and youth ministry will be a blessing as we continue to nourish our youth in their faith walk and grow our family ministries outreach in the community.
We thank Rebecca Hohag for her months of service as our Interim Youth Director. Rebecca’s unique style helped to deepen faith connections across many intergenerational relationships. Even though we will miss her as she travels the world, we look forward to her return in the fall to explore where God will lead her next.
We will be praying for students as they head back to school, for Jeremy and his family as they begin a new chapter in their lives and for Rebecca’s travels and safe return.
Ephesians 6:18 - Pray in the Spirit at all times in every prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert and always persevere in supplication for all the saints.
We invite you to visit our Black Forest Festival booth in the back parking lot of Black Forest Lutheran Church on August 11 from 9:00 AM - 2:00 PM for FREE face painting and to meet and enjoy a little magic show by our resident Magician!
I also hope you join us at our outdoor and indoor services throughout August to meet Jeremy and his family and give thanks for all that God is doing in our lives. Check out our calendar to see which services are outdoors.
Thanks be to God,
Pastor Ken Hohag
