Go to Guatemala!
The 2018 trip to visit ILUGUA (Lutheran Church of Guatemala) is scheduled for
This is an opportunity to get a firsthand view of ILUGUA’s outreach to rural communities and
perhaps even an opportunity to deepen your own faith in the process. Pastors Pilar and
Eduardo will welcome us as we stay in the guest house located behind the church and travel to
mission sites and community meetings. This is not a work trip—given the resources,
Guatemalans are more than capable of doing physical labor—but rather a trip of
accompaniment, support and solidarity with our fellow Christians. The total cost is estimated
between $1,500 and $2,000 (dependent on flight availability) but grants are available through
the Mission Connection committee of Deacons for those who need funding assistance. For
more information, contact Craig Foster (563-391-4622, email@example.com).
Sunday Service Times:
9:00 am & 11:00 am
Hear Our Prayers
“Oh Christ who said, let the children come to me and do not hinder them, comfort
these lost and
wounded ones, shelter them and their grieving families under the shadow of your wings. Help
us to find the way to free our children from fear that hinders their ability to grow, to thrive. Walk
alongside families and friends who now enter the valley of the shadow.
Oh God, hear our prayers. We are wandering in a wilderness of relentless
violence, we are lost.
Our mouths are filled with dust as we taste the bitterness of rage and the first fruits of grief. Our
hearts are broken at the loss of these young lives and the shattering of so many families, and
like our forebears, we would cover our heads with dust and rend our garments to show the
depth of our sorrow and pain.
Crucified and Human One, who walked through the valley of the shadow of death
for our sake,
help us. Walk with us through the dark valley. In this Lenten season, give us the courage to
face our brokenness and lack of will to make peace in our communities, our cities, our schools.
Give us the wisdom to open our eyes and speak truth to power. Show us a way out of this
wilderness. Give us strength to make our Lenten discipline one of remembrance, repentance,
and action on behalf of those whose lives are being shattered every day. Let this be our fast.
In the name of the Suffering Servant, Jesus, we pray. Amen.“
