Hi Everyone,

Similarly, we held a meeting after worship Sunday, February 7, to discuss the potential sale of the Berg House (you can also view that meeting on RLC Live!).

  • are available in hard-copy at the church or by mail (upon request by email or phone).
Video Annual Reports

This year we have recorded video reports and posted them above so that you can review the material in whatever format is easiest, and so that we can connect faces with people you might not have seen all year. Please check them out before the annual meeting in order for us to use the meeting time efficiently. You are invited to submit specific questions and comments ahead of time, so that responses can be shared with the whole congregation.

Historical Tidbits

Cyril, monk, died 869; Methodius, bishop, died 885; missionaries to the Slavs

Sunday, February 14, 2021

These two brothers from Thessalonika, Greece, were monks and were sent to bring Christianity to the Slavic people. In the course of their work they created a written language, inventing the Cyrillic alphabet for it, and translated the Bible and the liturgy.

Martin Luther, renewer of the church, died 1546

Thursday, February 18, 2021

Though he began his adult church life as a simple Augustinian monk, Luther challenged the abuses he saw in the church, and his work eventually led to the Protestant Reformation. Luther’s accomplishments included liturgical reform, translation of the Bible, and creation of the Small and Large Catechisms.

Home Communion

Here are are two different versions of a home communion service available to be lead by your head of household:

Holy Communion is never a spectator sport where only a few are privileged to partake.  Including Holy Communion in a virtual service with no instruction on how those viewer might partake leans heavily into a Roman Catholic understanding of the Eucharist, and even more poignantly, right now the Roman Catholic Church is asking their members to keep the fast from the Eucharist until we can gather again.
