Eric Detar leads us in prayer on this Sunday.

Article by Joyce L. Wiedrich

We are in the week to Easter and the resurrection! We also have opened our sanctuary in a limited fashion on Sundays, along with Zoom, and have kids church on Saturday afternoon.  What a year it has been, but now looking forward to new beginnings! 

Pastor Sandi’s message this past week was on loosing and winning.  The hour has come for the Son of man to be glorified.  If we loose something we often gain something, and end up being a winner!

We have just come through a year of loss, in loosing friends and family to covid, in missing our friends and family, missing the hugs, dining out and being together.  We have missed celebrating people in our congregation that have gone to meet the Lord.  We have missed greeting babies coming into the world, and seeing our little ones grow.  Lent feels like a time of loss; it is a time of tension, as Jesus tells of his own death.  

Pastor Sandi asked us what we are willing to loose to live in the Resurrection of Jesus?  What is stopping us?  We want to loose to win!

A milestone birthday for Nancy Westerdahl, who joined husband Bruce in recently turning 90!  So many happy years together for this couple.

Our deepest condolences to Russ Heggie and family of Helen Stickney in her recent passing. She had been a faithful church goer with us at BPUMC for many years, so often sending cards to others with well wishes and to celebrate occasions.  

Easter Blessings to all!
