Join us on Wednesday evening or Thursday Morning for Bible Class.  The evening class is studying portions of the readings from the upcoming Sunday worship service and talking about them. And on Thursday, our series is David.
 

Join us for these studies, you will enjoy them.

 

SHARE We have noticed more “hits” on our web-page when people share.  If the service is one that you benefited from, why not share it?  This is a much easier way to invite a friend who might be “searching” to Pilgrim.

CONSIDER ONLINE GIVING - During the COVID  19 social distancing the Church Council asks that you continue your offerings to church - the bills continue make their way into our mailbox.  There are two ways you can do this:  1.  use online giving (there is a link at the bottom of this email for online giving)  2.  Mail your offerings 

Motivated by our Savior’s gifts and promises we want to continue to offer our gifts to him as our response.  Online giving can help with that

Love is the answer
Haris (named changed for his protection) spearheaded an effort in a large Midwest city to distribute food and face masks in the midst of COVID-19. We are also not disclosing the name of this city for his protection. Haris is originally from a Muslim nation in South Asia and now lives in America. He is enrolled in our WELS Pastoral Studies Institute (PSI). Haris shares:
When the coronavirus started, I was thinking. . . how can we reach out to the large Muslim population in our community to show the love of Christ? I was talking to my friend, and he said, “I know of WELS churches that are making face masks! They will make masks for you to share with the Muslims.” So we started distributing food to our Muslim neighborhood along with the face masks. People in the community donated groceries and money to buy food. We delivered food and masks on more than 20 different occasions. People drove up in their cars, and we put the groceries in their vehicles. We also dropped off food on people’s porches. Counting only the early drive-thrus, we helped 504 families and assisted 64 families who had a family member with coronavirus.
We made so many friends, and received a lot of feedback from the community. They said, “You risked your life and distributed food and masks even in the rain and snow.” Everyone knows I am a Christian, and they know this help comes because of the love of Jesus for all people. I told the mayor of this community, “These Christians made these masks. They did this because they care for these people. The people who live hundreds of miles away don’t know who will be getting it. It is impossible. Only the love of Christ causes them to do this.”
One WELS District President wrote to the churches in his district about this opportunity. Several churches and many individuals responded. One family made 2,000+ masks for relatives, neighbors, and for Muslims in this large city. Some of the face masks had Bible verses inside the plastic bags. A pastor at one of our rural WELS churches said, “Our people understood that this was an opportunity to reach out to others in a time of crisis. They wanted to serve their fellow man and to serve Christ as he served them.”
During the pandemic, four close friends of mine (not involved in the distribution effort) died from the coronavirus. All four had converted from Islam to Christianity in the last few years and were assisting me in ministry to the Muslim community. One was a former economics professor from Asia, another was a young father with a wife and two children, another was a young man at a nearby university who assisted with apologetics (the defense of the Christian faith), and the last was a very close friend who had lost everything when she converted to Christianity. Her new family was my family. My wife and this woman were as close as sisters. While sorrow grips our hearts, we have the assurance that our friends are now with Jesus.
Love was the answer for reaching out to our community–and love was the answer for conquering death and hatred. “All men will know that you are my disciples if you love one another” (John 13:35)
