The Board is charged with responsibility for all aspects of our congregation (financial, operational, legal, staff, etc.), and we commit to you to use our collective efforts to fulfill these obligations with the utmost care and diligence. The Board will also place a large emphasis on becoming true servant-leaders of our congregation. We intend to spend considerable time focusing on such strategic matters as: Is our mission and vision clearly articulated? Is our mission and vision compelling? What characteristics would be present in our congregation if the mission and vision were fully embraced? This focus will require your Board to review and consider all aspects of our congregation to determine if, strategically, we are in the best position to win people to Christ, help them grow in their relationship with Him and equip them to live lives of servant-leaders for Him.

The Board also feels strongly that we should be in prayer for our congregation. At every Board meeting we will take time to pray for our members and the needs of our congregation so please let any Board member or pastor know if you have a prayer request. It would be a true privilege for our Board to lift you up in prayer.

 

The Mission

“Mission gives your life purpose”
“The mission of Lutheran Church of the Master is to make Christ known to all people; aiding them to become baptized believers, equipping them to become committed disciples of Christ, and inspiring them to become Christian servant leaders in God’s Church and world.”

All the members of the board would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a very blessed new year. This is the time of the year we celebrate our Savior’s birth, as we focus on our church and family traditions. We hope you enjoyed all the special programs that our church offered, especially the intergenerational Christmas program at East and the Children’s program at West that helped us celebrate Christmas.

I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers”. Ephesians 1:16
 
Our Congregation continues to remain in a solid financial position. Though we are now fully staffed with four full-time pastors with a number of exciting activities well underway, at the end of September, offerings and other income exceeded expenses and income was approximately $20,000 higher than at the end of September, 2018. This is due to the generous and faithful giving of our members and the great job the staff is doing at managing church expenses.

September 2019

It’s hard to believe that summer is drawing to a close with school back in session already. We’ve had a wonderful summer with many opportunities to share Christ’s love with each other and with our communities. Praise God for giving us the gift of His love and guiding us to join Him as He shares that love with all people.

Being the newest elected member of the Church Board I waited as long as I could to take my turn at writing this article for the newsletter because I wanted to better understand the Board’s responsibilities. I was on the Church Council years ago and I knew the Church Board would be different and now I feel acclimated to this role.
