good morning every one
hi morning
That is the last thing the church ask people to do : send in offering.
God shall supply all of your needs - including the church finance.

**************************************************

A suggestion -

The church was asking people to mail in their offering - personal checks. (even cashier checks are cumbersome).

Problem #1: how the person mail the checks ....
Problem #2: more work for administrative staff
Problem #3: post offices were being robbed / even postal workers kept the mailing (including offering checks) - bad economy
Problem #4: no one wants to expose their account #, Driver license # (if printed on the check ) or their addresses .

Suggestion: Provide a church bank account designated for church offering - with the routing # and the full account # , be sure to indicate - checking or saving accounts.

The church people can ADD the church bank account as their online Payee. Usually the bank will verify the Added account with a small deposit and ask the person to confirm that is the right account.

The Online Pay account is only for directing "offering" to the church (one way only ) .

**********************
Side notes:

The church needs to find ways to reduce expenses - including temporary staff pay cut -- many loss of their jobs, take pay cut, even dentists and other professional are facing the financial crisis, but at a lesser level.

Church security - more robberies -- looting stores and group gathering places.
Use online group chat for meetings instead of the church building -- avoid church doors opened at all times.

The economy is not just the Conornavirus - people are not only unable to physically put their offering in the church worship service; but the economy downturn.

Financial crisis -
(loss of jobs, stocks / investment; working parents are forced to care for kids - (school closing down ) ,

*********************
Set up Benevolent fund ...
Church members or anyone from the church can contribute $100 to $500 as a group loan (with or without interest) to those who need financial assistance . ($10K to start )

Legal documents / signed forms , procedures can be outlined and set up as Memorandum of Understanding / terms and conditions.

*********************
There is no vaccine for Cornovavirus - side effect will be unknown for a long time.

A virus come back again in winter. Summer is better because of the summer heat. (a vicious cycle with us for many years ).

*************************
Think "outside of the box"

1) set up "video chat" with the group to participate "fellowship" online. (Many social media sites video are free ).

2) have a "relay" phone calls with multiple people in the group at the same time.

3) record short activities / messages in Youtube and invite people in the group to watch.

4) email the "materials" to the group.... "social-distancing " fellowship (if there is such a term).

5) Have smaller group in "home fellowship"...two or three gathered in Jesus name, He is there.
Please help...

1) What happen when an infant passed away before the infant has a chance to baptize? ; or God's saving grace saved the infant from hell before baptism when life stopped?

2) Does baptism save people? Does the person already saved when he responded when the Holy Spirit conviction of the Laws of God and the needs of the Grace of God (salvation).

For example, at the end of Billy Graham Evangelistic crusade, the person say "Yes" to the gospel is already saved; or he has to get up to walk to the front to say the "sinner prayer". What happened he got into a fatal car accident on his way home after he responded to the gospel. (He didn't have a chance to hear the gospel. Will he still go to heaven? )

I sat through all the classes, sermons at the church for the past 25+ years, but I don't remember it is clearly explained to me. The book of Concord and Lutheran Confession didn't include different situations or any exceptions.
㊗️ 新年快樂 Happy Chinese New Year 🧧

The year of the pig 🐷🐽, began last Tuesday, the 5th, and ends next Tuesday, the 19th.

We were blessed with the opportunity to step in, listen👂, immerse, and experience a culture 🇹🇼🇭🇰🇼🇸 that is rich in traditions.

We spent two days over this past weekend with brothers and sisters from different generations
- learning stories,
- having conversations,
- making Chinese New Year snacks - Tong Yuen,
- making Chinese New Year crafts - 🍊 Mandarin orange,
- worshipping 🙌🙏,
- participating in praise dance & tai chi,
- fellowshipping over meals 🍗🍜🍛🥟🥢🥡🍵,
- and just celebrating life together 🎉🎂

Thank you Lutheran Church of the Holy Spirit for sharing your space, stories, ministries, families, and relationships with us, LINC Los Angeles, LINC Bay Area, and many more ministry leaders from the Bay 🌁🌉. You were such a generous and hospitable host 🥰

Pastor Chris, thank you 🙇‍♀️ for your hospitality, generosity, and patience as God used us to partner in this events. It indeed was a blessing to be able to witness this dream turn into a reality - many are already asking for this to be an annual event 🤔🤷‍♀️

Came across this SFgate article from 2003... amazing fond memories and legacies of our founding church pastor, Ptr. Holt and his wife left with LCHS. Not many may know this history, thought I'd share:

A unique bilingual Chinese English Lutheran Church of the Missouri Synod, proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ to people in the Sunset District.

A Song of Lament (Original Song)

“God, listen! Listen to my prayer,
listen to the pain in my cries.
Don’t turn your back on me

Pay attention! This is a cry for help!
And hurry—this can’t wait!”
– Psalm 102:1-2 (MSG)
