Elim Extra for Sunday March 3, 2024

Pastor’s Reflection

At our Annual Meeting on January 28th, we (re-)elected the following Church Council Members. President – Craig Bjorklund Vice-President – Stephen Wright Secretary – Lucille Rossbach Treasurer – Joan Tonn Member-at-large – Leslie Ortiz Member-at-large – Suma Anson. Please thank them for their willingness to serve the congregation on the council! Their formal installation will occur this Sunday during worship.

On Sunday we will also post Elim’s scrapbooks and timeline in the social hall, so you can look back over God’s hand in Elim’s history and bring your own memories to the table. In Lenten worship, we are remembering truths about our relationship with God, allowing God to hold us and refresh us. Please join us on Wednesdays at 5:30 to join in singing Holden Evening Prayer, or if you don’t sing, come and let the music wash over you.

with love,

Pr. Chelsea

Before you go, a favor to ask:

Because facebook no longer supports live-streaming in horizontal format, we are considering switching to YouTube for streaming our Sunday services. However, we need to have at least 50 subscribers to our YouTube channel in order to allow streaming. We are accumulating sign-ups, but as of the date of publication we still need more. If you would be willing to subscribe, please go to YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/@EELCOUT) and click the “subscribe” link. Note that we have TWO channels; the second URL ends with “3066.” Don’t subscribe to that one. We will stream to the first channel. Thanks for helping, if you are able.
