Keep Praying for Each Other

by Pastor Jon Haakana

Many of us have not seen each other much in these past five months. The Covid-19 pandemic has sure reminded us how much we need each other. “You don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone” may be a song cliché, but it’s a cliché because there’s some real truth in it. We have all been living through the most tangible reminder in our collective lifetimes that we need each other, that we belong in community, and that we are much stronger together.

Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 (NCV)

9 Two people are better than one, because they get more done by working together.

10 If one falls down, the other can help him up. But it is bad for the person who is alone and falls, because no one is there to help.
11 If two lie down together, they will be warm, but a person alone will not be warm.
12 An enemy might defeat one person, but two people together can defend themselves;
a rope that is woven of three strings is hard to break.

God made this promise to Joshua and the Israelite's and they crossed into the unchartered territory of the Promised Land: 

God said in Joshua 1:9, “Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

“Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. This is what the ancients were commended for.”

Hebrews 11:1-2 NIV

Funeral Service for Kristin Bradley

The funeral for Kristin Bradley will be held on Monday, September 21 at 11:00 AM at Mount Olive Lutheran Church (700 Western Street, Anoka, MN). There will be a time of visitation beginning at 10:00 AM. 

Because of COVID-19 restrictions and safety protocols, the funeral and visitation will be open for family members and invited guests only. With the potential for a large funeral exceeding the 250 maximum we are allowed during this pandemic, we are limiting onsite attendance. We will be livestreaming the service on our website, Facebook page, and on our YouTube channel.

Click here to view the funeral service live streamed through our website on Monday, September 21 at 11:00 AM. The service will be available for viewing online through Sunday, October 4.

In lieu of flowers, the family prefers memorials to the Muscular Dystrophy Centre in Zimbabwe. Please make checks payable to Mount Olive.

Please continue to pray for Matt, Sarah, Luke, Nick and the rest of the family, asking God to provide His strength, comfort and peace in the days to come. Thank you.

During this time of COVID-19

Even as our circumstances are changing rapidly, we know God is the same yesterday, today, and always. Take comfort in that, friends! The staff of Mount Olive will continue to work daily to do the work God has called us to do. Therefore, we encourage you to continue to be generous in your giving.
