 Moses Basket Auction Benefit

The Moses Comfort Dog team will be holding the 6th annual silent Easter basket auction to benefit the ministry.   Anyone who would like to donate a basket can bring it to the church beginning Sunday, February 18.  The deadline for donors to bring baskets is Sunday, March 25.    Bids will be taken until 9:00 a.m. on Easter morning (April 1), and baskets may be picked up at the church or delivered to the highest bidder.   The baskets will be on display at the church, and some of the baskets will also be displayed at the Pathway Bank in Cairo from March 26 through March 29.  As the LCC mission statement states, “The Comfort Dog Ministry will enable us to share the joy and forgiveness we have in Jesus, assist in providing comfort to the grieving and distressed and open doors and hearts that are often closed to Christian ministry.”   Our experience so far has been that Moses acts as a sort of magnet that draws people to us and helps open the door for sharing the Gospel and prayer, and we very much appreciate the continued support of the Christ Lutheran family.

First Baptist Church Cairo Invites You

We wanted to invite you and your youth on Weds, Feb 21, we will be hosting Lannie and Marilyn Johnson from the Alpha Omega Institute, their topic will be Dinosaurs and the Bible.

We invite you to join us for a special worship series for Lent called “Amazing Grace.” Each service in the series includes a dramatic monolog from someone who participated in the story of salvation and contemplates how that participant would respond to the amazing grace found in the cross of Christ.  The participant we hear from in the Ash Wednesday service is Jonah, who explains what amazing grace means for those who come to the cross repentant.

Old Testament Reading….Exodus 34:29–35

29When Moses came down from Mount Sinai, with the two tablets of the testimony in his hand as he came down from the mountain, Moses did not know that the skin of his face shone because he had been talking with God. 30Aaron and all the people of Israel saw Moses, and behold, the skin of his face shone, and they were afraid to come near him. 31But Moses called to them, and Aaron and all the leaders of the congregation returned to him, and Moses talked with them. 32Afterward all the people of Israel came near, and he commanded them all that the Lord had spoken with him in Mount Sinai. 33And when Moses had finished speaking with them, he put a veil over his face.  34Whenever Moses went in before the Lord to speak with him, he would remove the veil, until he came out. And when he came out and told the people of Israel what he was commanded, 35the people of Israel would see the face of Moses, that the skin of Moses’ face was shining. And Moses would put the veil over his face again, until he went in to speak with him.

 

Epistle………….. 2 Corinthians 3:12–13; 4:1–6

 12Since we have such a hope, we are very bold, 13not like Moses, who would put a veil over his face so that the Israelites might not gaze at the outcome of what was being brought to an end. 1Therefore, having this ministry by the mercy of God, we do not lose heart. 2But we have renounced disgraceful, underhanded ways. We refuse to practice cunning or to tamper with God’s word, but by the open statement of the truth we would commend ourselves to everyone’s conscience in the sight of God. 3And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled only to those who are perishing. 4In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. 5For what we proclaim is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, with ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake. 6For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

 

 

Holy Gospel……………… Mark 9:2–9

 

2And after six days Jesus took with him Peter and James and John, and led them up a high mountain by themselves. And he was transfigured before them, 3and his clothes became radiant, intensely white, as no one on earth could bleach them. 4And there appeared to them Elijah with Moses, and they were talking with Jesus. 5And Peter said to Jesus, “Rabbi, it is good that we are here. Let us make three tents, one for you and one for Moses and one for Elijah.” 6For he did not know what to say, for they were terrified. 7And a cloud overshadowed them, and a voice came out of the cloud, “This is my beloved Son; listen to him.” 8And suddenly, looking around, they no longer saw anyone with them but Jesus only. 9And as they were coming down the mountain, he charged them to tell no one what they had seen, until the Son of Man had risen from the dead.
