The Messenger

A Message from Pastor Marie…

“Sing to the LORD a new song, his praise from the end of the earth!

Let the sea roar and all that fills it the coastlands and their inhabitants.” –Isaiah 42:10

As I write this, inhabitants of Alabama, Florida, and Louisiana are preparing for Hurricane Isaac to arrive. The news reports that Louisiana in particular is far more prepared than they were for Katrina. Those who have lived through hurricanes and who aid in disaster recovery have learned a great deal in the past decade, and the things they have learned changed the way they are preparing today.

New things abound at First English as well.

On September 9th, we will be having our first Baptismal Festival. Weather permitting we hope to baptize several people in the garden maintained by Bob and Nancy Rich. A first for our congregation.

I am officially signed up to substitute teach in the Teays-Valley schools. I look forward to getting to know the students better in this way. It will be a new way for your pastor to Ashville youth.

We have a new evangelism committee: Mona Lee Trego, Shirley Norris, Sheryl & David Cleaver, Mike Raver, and Tom Ramsay, together with the women of the Esther Circle, are busy planning a Nativity Walk as part of the Ashville Church Tour on December 1st.

Choir is meeting Wednesday at 6:30 to discuss who might direct our choir this year and options for providing special music in the meantime.

A new year of confirmation begins Sunday, October 7th, from 6-7:30 at St. John Lutheran Church in Lithopolis. Confirmation will meet on the first Sunday of every month at the same time through April.

On September 2nd we will begin learning a new liturgical setting from the blue hymnal, With One Voice. We will use this setting until the season of Advent begins in December.

We have new members on the Worship & Music committee: Patti Danison and Karyn Brown. Ernie Reeb is assembling a technology team so that we can begin using our new screen to enhance our worship on a regular basis. Mike Kent has stepped down from leading Worship & Music and directing the choir so that he and Jana can prepare for their NEW adventure: boarding the Lady J in the spring of 2014 as both their boat and their HOME. Imagine all the new experiences that lie ahead for these beloved members of First English. Thank you, Mike, for your strong leadership in the past. You can read about Mike & Jana’s plans on the blog:

Our Adult Sunday School which meets at 9 a.m. has just begun a new bible study: Digital Disciple (by Adam Thomas). Through this study we will be considering how to be use technology to faithfully reach out to others and the issues of both connection and isolation that come with the way technology permeates our culture today.

On Sunday, September 30th, we will be having a potluck after worship with donations going to support World Hunger. At our last-Sunday food gatherings, we are also having “Food for Thought,” an informal time when council can share its plans with the congregation and solicit your input.

Sometimes, in the face of many new things, anxiety increases. Let me assure you that despite all these new things, many former things remain.

We have returned to using the Revised Common Lectionary during Sunday worship; it enables us to use the many resources available to enhance our worship and allows Pastor Marie to remain in step with colleagues in sermon preparation.

We will continue to celebrate the Lord’s Supper on the 1st, 3rd, and 5th Sundays.

We will continue to worship using Now The Feast and Celebration from Marty Haugen on the 3rd Sunday of each month.

Even as we sing to the Lord a new song, the old, old story is told. This is the day that the Lord has made. It will include former things and new things.

Therefore, in all things, let us rejoice and be glad in it!

---Pastor Marie
