Included within the Grace Messenger are preparations for Lent beginning with Ash Wednesday, opportunities on how to serve or help the surrounding community through the Loaves and Fishes Pantry, supporting Souper Bowl Sunday, and collecting items for Personal Care Kits this Lenten season that are in high demand during the pandemic.

Devotion shared by Word in Season, April 28th: Food to grow on, 1 Peter 2:2 Like newborn infants, long for the pure, spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow into salvation.
As long as I live, I will never forget the joy of holding my only child, Scott, for the first time. Precious, cuddly, and … hungry! That problem was solved without delay. And those early feedings helped him to grow.
Just as newborns need food to grow, we adults need food to grow spiritually. One place we can find this “food” is in the scriptures. For example, when we read this text from Isaiah, we may receive courage: “Do not fear, for I am with you” (Isaiah 41:10). When we read this from 1 John, we may receive the power to love: “We love because [God] first loved us” (1 John 4:19).
Food helps us grow and stay nourished. Spiritual food helps us grow in our faith. We receive spiritual food through studying scripture, hearing the good news proclaimed, receiving Christ’s body and blood, and in the mutual conversation and consolation of the saints of God.
Great Teacher Jesus, open my mind to learn all you want me to learn this day. Amen.
