You are invited to join us on Wednesday, April 14 at 7:00 p.m. for a Holy Humour Worship Service presented by the Niagara Area Ministry Leadership Team and Members of our Congregations. This special evening worship service celebrates the Joy of Easter with music, message and mirth. The idea of this celebration is that God had the last laugh over death. Jesus was buried in the tomb and it looked like death had won, but three days later Christ arose. The early theologians called it “the Easter laugh!”
To join us, simply click on the following link (to obtain the link, contact the church office before Wednesday via email or phone) between 6:50 and 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, April 14. (No meeting ID or password is required.) There will be a prelude from 6:55 to 7:05 p.m., however admittance will discontinue once the worship service begins. Please stay muted when logging in with either video or name only.
Attached to this email is a missal*, or worship guide, for this event. We hope you can join us on Wednesday!

Our call committee of Dianne Yungblut, Bob Hansen and Melanie Funk Laskaris have been meeting almost weekly ( via Zoom ) for the past several months in preparation for this process.
The call committee from First Lutheran consists of Mike Bernatz, Claudia Brema and Merle Nielsen.
Restrictions due to Covid-19 have delayed this process. Meeting dates have been changed and rearranged several times.
A Zoom meeting has been tentatively arranged for April 15 with Pastor Reble from the synod office and the two call committees. My understanding is that there are interested candidates.
I will update members of the congregation as I am able.
We pray for God`s guidance as this process moves forward. We thank our call committee for their dedication to this process on behalf of St. Matthew`s.
Peace and stay safe
