Easter Peace In Jesus!

Please know that your congregation has been involved to the extent possible in the unfolding tragedy related to yesterdays bombings.  I am so grateful to Pastors Lantz, Pekari and Brezina who spent most of last evening with me.

We are so thankful no FLC friends or members (or the marathoners who worshipped with us last Sunday) were physically harmed, but I can only imagine how all your hearts are grieving at this senseless devastation and loss of life. We have been open through the night and been inundated with “Angels” who have offered any manner of help but, thankfully, other than coffee and restrooms the immediate needs have been minimal.

Here is how you can help; 1.) your prayers and thoughts on behalf of those who have suffered loss, as well as the caregivers in the midst of providing for their needs. 2.) your financial support of the  3 “Comfort Dogs” and their handlers and staff of LCMS disaster response led by Pastor Tim Hetzner, all of whom will be staying at the Park Plaza Hotel starting tonight through Sunday. They will be giving comfort starting tomorrow (stay tuned to FLC website and emails for locations) and will attend our FLC Memorial Service on Friday, April 19th  at noon as well as both Sunday morning services, and 3.) Pray that doors are opened at the hospitals among the caregivers, and social service agencies that we may bring the comfort of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to as many people as possible.

Yours for Christ and His Kingdom

Pastor Dutzmann

P.S. Snacks and non alcoholic drinks are always welcome!

    Thank you, First Lutheran Church – Pastor Dutzmann, Pastor Lantz and congregational members- for being Christ’s hands and feet as you reach out in Word and deed to those affected in any way from the bombings Monday. Please know that even though we are far away in Belleville, IL you are all close in heart and in our fervent and continuing prayers as you minister in many ways to those in need and as you bring the peace of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to hurting people. Thank you for bringing the Comfort Dogs to Boston as one of those means. As fellow Christians, we consider it a privilege to be able to support you not only with our prayers but also with a contribution to the Comfort Dog Fund. God bless you all with courage, strength and wisdom as you serve the Lord.
