        March 22, 2015 - Seeing and Knowing Jesus

        This certainly wasn’t what she expected life to be.  She was happily married, had a nice house and a good job.  She had a wonderful but shy 5 year old girl that was her wonder and joy.   I had many visits with her and watched her body waste away.  She has inoperable brain cancer.  It was not a matter of if, but when.  She said to me one of the things I will miss the most is not being there for my daughter’s big moments in life.  She would miss her 16th birthday, her first date, her high school graduation and if God willed, her wedding.  So she decided to make several videos.   You might view it as “words of advice and hope from your mom”.   She made a video for each of those life stages.   She wanted her daughter to know that while she may be absent physically, she would be with her daughter when she turned 16 and so forth.

        Easter Lilies

        We would like to have lilies on the altar for Easter Sunday and are asking everyone to bring one!  You can then take them home after the service.

        March 15, 2015 - Shining light on God's Love

        Some of you might remember this guy.  He was the rainbow man.  He would dress up in a rainbow colored afro and show up at sporting events.  You would see him at the NBA finals, at NFL games and even at Nascar events.   He became famous enough that he found himself in Budweiser beer commercial.  I always wondered where he got the cash to come up with all those tickets.  He was everywhere.  But you see it wasn’t just his rainbow hair that stood out.  He would also flash a sign that said, John 3:16.


        Pastor Glenn's sermons are now on You Tube - when on the site, just input Maricopa Lutheran and click on the picture and there he is!!  Isn't technology great???   Note: There will always be links to the videos on the Pastor's Sermons Page on the main Website as well. Written sermons can also be found on the website.

        Media Team Needed

        If you are comfortable with a computer please see Pastor Glenn.  Media during worship will begin once we have people trained.  Youth 6th grade and older encouraged to help

        Praise Worship Launch Team

        We have a team of people: Joe Bergen, Bonnie and Terry Oldfield, Doug and Lyn Hunsaker, Laurie Nicholas, Helen Sparks and Pastor Glenn are meeting April 1st to plan for our second worship.   We will inform the council and congregation on what next steps are needed.  Praise God for providing people interested to make this happen! .

        March 8, 2015 - Why We Worship

        When I first interviewed with the call committee I mentioned to them that the sermons online from Mt. Cross Lutheran in Payson are all done at the contemporary service where I don’t dress up in my pastor’s outfit.  Well somewhere along the way, that was missed.  When my name was submitted to council they were told, well Pastor Glenn wears street clothes while preaching.  So many of you were expecting me to be in my jeans that very first Sunday.  So I surprised some of you by having my pastor’s garb on.   Some of you are still wondering when and if you will see me in jeans on a Sunday morning. That will happen during our future second worship but I have too much respect for those that appreciate traditional forms of worship to not conduct worship in an alb and a stole.
