Please support those who take the Good News to the world!  

What Are Those Lutherans Up To?

Nearby and all across the LCMS, our brothers and sisters in Christ are engaged in bringing the love of Christ, by Word and deed, to a broken world.  See what's up!  

Bible Reading Challenge

We are looking into the Bible to examine who God reveals Himself to be. We begin with His revelation of being Trinity, then Father, then Jesus the Son.  In Advent we looked at the work of the Holy Spirit in the Christms story. This should be a fun time of relaxed learning about our God from our God.  Watch Pastor Tiaden's Facebook Live posting each morning commenting on the day's reading! Leave comments and questions.  (No Bible? Read it online at Biblia or BibleGateway.)

Pandemic Information

With the recent uptick in COVID cases, we are bringing back Tuesday (9-10 AM) and Thursday (4:30-5:30 PM) drop-in communion sessions (see above).  Also:
  • Masks, gloves, sanitizer, etc. are available at the parking lot entrance.
  • Masks are not required, but you are welcome to wear one if you wish.
  • Out of respect for others, please maintain some distance.
  • Drop your offering in the box as you enter (or exit).  (Better yet, set up regular ONLINE OFFERINGS and never forget that envelope again!)
  • Have some COFFEE in the fireside room!
 

Food Distribution

Berea was again privileged to share God's abundance with our neighbors through our Second Harvest food distributions this past summer.  We distributed over 47,000 pounds of food; on average, each bi-weekly distribution served 510 people in 162 households!  Our 20 volunteers were greatly appreciated, as were the donors who helped cover the cost of the food.  Watch this space next spring for 2022 info!
