Veterans Update

Year-End Veteran’s Update
 
We would like to express our sincere gratitude to all who supported our burger fundraiser in November in coordination with the veteran’s group at Del Webb Retirement Community. Our friend Joe Welge and his family, plus Thrivent Financial supplied the food and cooking equipment. We were able to raise our most significant amount ever: $7,500, which was presented to the folks at Tri-County Healthcare in support of veteran mental health. Nearly $1,000 was included from Lord of Life.
 
During these difficult times, it was heartwarming to see the turnout for those great cheeseburgers and a great cause.
Tri-County vets are so grateful.
Thanks again for your support and a happy and healthy new year to all!

Covid Update

12/29/21

Dear Lord of Life,

Your congregation leadership continues to closely monitor information related to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. As has been true since this all began in March of 2020, this continues to be a fluid situation and we hope to respond appropriately as new information becomes available.

 
At this time we are seeing a high positivity rate for COVID testing (above 19% at the time of this writing). This percentage is approaching the rate that we were seeing last fall. The death rate in our area remains low but we are also learning that the Omicron variant is more easily transmissible, though less likely to result in death. We continue to follow the CDC website for up-to-date statistics regarding our local county.

 

We are currently recommending that all people attending worship or other events in the building wear masks while indoors and especially when in close proximity to others. We are also reminding our entire community of the importance of maintaining social distance even when in worship. Ushers will be reminding us to space ourselves out as we are seated for worship. As always, if you are feeling unwell (cough, sneeze, fever, etc.) please stay home and take advantage of the live-stream of all our worship opportunities and most of our adult education courses.

 

We deeply value being able to fellowship, worship, and serve in person. In order for this to continue to be a possibility, we all share a responsibility for protecting one another. We thank you for your faithfulness to our shared life together and our mission to seek and welcome all to connect celebrate and serve in God’s love.

Yours in Christ,

Pastor David Bauser, Senior Pastor

Joe Cox, Congregation Council President

Linda Nicolosi, Congregation Council Vice President
 


Tammy Fincher Retirement

We write this letter with a mix of sadness and celebration to inform you all that Tammy Fincher, Coordinator for Worship Support, has announced her retirement effective September 1, 2021.

 
She assures us that she will still be around Lord of Life but will not be serving in the same official ca
pacity. Tammy has been a gift to our staff team and to our entire congregation throughout her five years at Lord of Life. She has been instrumental in helping us cultivate the meaningful worship life that we have all come to appreciate. While we will certainly grieve her departure, we want to celebrate her many years of ministry as she moves into this new stage of life!
 

To that end, we hope you will join us in worship on August 29, 2021 to celebrate Tammy and to bless her as she follows the Holy Spirit into the next steps of her life. We hope these next two weeks will provide all of us with time to thank Tammy and share the ways she has impacted our own faith.


The Personnel Team and the Congregation Council will be working to determine the best path forward for the Coordinator or Worship Support role. We will keep you updated as information is available.
Grace and Peace,

Pastor John VanHaneghan
Pastor David Bauser
