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.”

April 2020

Hello to all of our LCM family. Spring is finally here and there are some exciting things happening at LCM. First of all, how wonderful that we will be celebrating this month the resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! And what an opportunity to share the love of Christ! So please be sure to invite your family, friends and neighbors to join us! Our church will be gathering to celebrate Holy Week, April 5-12. In all likelihood, services will be online for Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and of course Easter! However, be sure to check our LCM church website (www.lcm.church) or the LCM app to verify the status of these services. We will continue to follow the recommendations of our civic leaders and our public health officials in regards to public gatherings.

All members of the board would like to take this opportunity, as LCM starts this new calendar year, to ask for your prayers to help guide us as we make decisions for our church. The annual meeting was a success, and I would like to thank everyone who attended. One of the actions completed was to elect three members to serve on the LCM Board. We had seven excellent candidates willing to serve.
 
The three members elected were Lori Mathison, who will be serving a second 3 year term Brooke Kirby, and Eric Jacobsen will each be serving an initial 3 year term. The Board had its organizational meeting on February 11th. At that meeting board members elected officers to serve during this upcoming year. Please feel free to contact any of us if you have questions or issues that need to be brought to our attention. Below is the list of the 2020 LCM Board members.

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.
