The heavens declare the

glory of God

and the sky above proclaims

his handiwork.

Psalm 19:1

Easter 2024.
Because He Lives, I can face tomorrow!
Alleluia! Christ is Risen!
Christ is risen indeed! Alleluia!
Over 185 Children of God gathered this morning
under our tent to celebrate the risen Lord!
A big thank you to the folks at Messiah Lutheran Church in Panama City. They had to make the sad decision to close their church. As the Council President, Sue Gllkiss put it, they just “aged out”. They knew about our situation and chose to donate their altar, lectern, pulpit and baptismal font and stand to us! They also sent us their paraments and communion supplies. They even sent the Christmas Tree! These lovely folks feel that, in some small way, Messiah Lutheran Church will live on here on Fort Myers Beach. Keep all these folks in your prayers as we get ready to put their things to work in our sanctuary.

Church Council Notes
Church Council did not meet in June, but there are plenty of things that are happening.  Here are just a few of the things that are going on in the church:
Shed -Council authorized ordering a shed and a stone base for it.  It will be a 12 x 20 shed with lots of shelving and overhead storage.  It will be painted to match the church building.  Since we don’t have Lau Hall anymore, we needed the extra storage that this shed will offer.
Electricity!!  We are within a week (so we are told) of FPL having our building electricified (I just made that word up)!  We have been using a generator for church services since we started using the tent so very long ago.  Power, as always, will be greatly appreciated by everyone.  It will also make it easier for the trades who are working hard on the building to complete their tasks.
Roof – The new roof is on and soffits and gutters were installed last week.  It is absolutely gorgeous and will keep us dry for many years to come.
Gift of Paraments and furniture – We were blessed to receive a number of items from Messiah Lutheran Church in Panama City.  Unfortunately, Messiah’s congregation had to disband due to the dwindling membership.  We were so honored to receive a new lecturn and pulpit as well as an altar and some altar chairs from them.  They also sent us many of their paraments and communion items to replace those of ours that were damaged in the hurricane.  We hope that some of them will be able to attend our first service in the sanctuary after our rebuild is complete.
Many more things are in the works, keep watching for more news.
