The Scribe – February 2024

From Pastor Ken

Annual Meeting
Sunday, February 4 @ 12:00p
Potluck – bring a dish to share!
Annual Reports are on the narthex table.

Sunday, February 11 – Jesus is transfigured on the mountain.
Of all the voices that vie for our attention, he is the voice we most need to hear.

On Super Bowl Sunday we remember those who don’t have enough to eat. Bring money or non-perishable food to put on our Souper bowl for them. See p. 2.


Lent begins with Ash Wednesday worship, February 14 @ 7:00p where our foreheads are marked with a cross. This reminds us that though one day we will return to dust and ashes, we are saved through the cross of Jesus Christ.

Lenten Theme: Going deep into the Lord’s Prayer

February 14: Our Father
February 21: Hallowed be thy name.
February 28: Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done.

From Andrew Koetsier, Youth and Family Ministries Director

Greetings BFLC Family!

Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. -Romans 12:1-2 (NIV)

Recently in youth group we have been talking about what worship is…not just a service we go to on Sunday morning, or when we sing songs or pray to God, but even more what we do and how we live our lives. Specifically, we have been discussing what it means to worship God in each individual area of our lives, whether it is at school, playing sports or at band, with our family time, or even just when we are hanging out with our friends.

My encouragement to you is the same: what is one area of your life you are going to intentionally worship God with in how you go about it this month? What changes might you make when you think about it through a worship-focused lens? My prayer is that we all would grow in awareness of how God is at work in each area of our lives and that by His Spirit, He would enable us to worship Him more fully in everything we do.

By His Grace,
Andrew Koetsier
