Consecration Sunday, May 20

Dear Members and Friends of Shalom Lutheran Church,

You are by now surely aware that Sunday, May 20th, is Consecration Sunday for our congregation. We believe that you have sufficient concern for your spiritual growth and the mission and ministries of our congregation to attend the two special events of this day—Sunday morning worship and the Celebration Luncheon immediately following worship. This is a catered meal, so we need reservations for each person. If you have not finalized plans to attend these two events, please do so immediately.

Our goal is to have every member and regular worship attendee present. If you did not make a reservation during the last two weeks, please let us know that you will be present by calling Tom Haggerty at (810)923-9308. The effectiveness of our church’s mission and ministries next year depends on your initiative and dedication. Please make whatever sacrifices are necessary to be present on May 20th.

Your servant in Christ,

Pastor Kurt


Dear Members and Friends of Shalom Lutheran Church:

Sunday, May 20th, is our congregation’s Consecration Sunday. I urge you to plan now to attend the two important events: Sunday morning worship and the Celebration Luncheon immediately following worship that same day (a catered meal, not a potluck dinner).

This spiritual-growth-oriented process is designed to enrich our biblical understanding of Christian stewardship. Rather than focusing on the need of the church to receive, the experience concentrates on the need of the giver to give for his or her own spiritual development.

We believe that you are concerned enough to attend on Consecration Sunday and make your financial commitment as an act of worship in the church sanctuary.

No one will call on you at your home for a pledge. But we will contact you personally to secure your commitment to attend morning worship on Consecration Sunday and the Celebration Luncheon immediately after worship.

It Stops With Students

Shalom is teaming up with It Stops With Students to help remind our community that providing alcohol to minors is illegal. Did you know that 62.5% of Livingston County high school students reported “it is sort of easy” or “very easy” to get alcohol? (Michigan profile for healthy youth 2015-2016) The penalties for providing alcohol to minors may include fines of up to $2,500 and/or up to 90 days in jail. Parent’s Who Host Lose The Most.
