Amherst Lutheran Church embraces the gifts of God to be used in the caring ministry of Jesus throughout His world. Holy God, your word feeds your people with life that is eternal. Direct our choices and preserve us in your truth, that, renouncing what is false and evil, we may live in you, through your Son, Jesus  Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen. 

Blanket Angels


Blankets are being made for children in foster care.  The local foster care system distributes 100 blankets a month. Our group will create no-sew blankets that can be made in one night and delivered to the Child Advocate Center on Franklin St. with tags that say "This blanket belongs to: _________" and the child will be able to write there name on it.  This way they will always be able to have at least one thing that is their own. We meet the third Thursday of each month (next date tbd) ) from 6-8 at the church. If you would like to donate, you can pick up the fleece no-sew blankets at JoAnn Fabrics and save them in the coat room, and our members will work on them.  Join the Blanket Angels Facebook page for up- dates (needs, bad weather cancellations, etc.).  Thank you for your continued support)..

Portals Of Prayer


Even though you may not have here in person for worship, Portals of Prayer is still arriving at ALC.  If you would be interested in receiving a copy at your home, please let Pastor Rebecca or the office know and we can arrange to have it delivered directly to you!  

What the Bible Say About…..


The ELCA accepts the canonical Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as the inspired Word of God and the authoritative source and norm of its proclamation, faith, and life.  Here is a link to key passages in the Bible that speak to many topics in everyday life.  Click here.

Cancer Companions


Cancer doesn’t get to swallow your days and your nights. It doesn’t get to put stress in your life or plague you with fear. It doesn’t get to come between you and your loved ones and it doesn’t get to come between you and your God. For many, these emotional and spiritual cancer battles can be as difficult as the physical battles. In short, cancer does not get to be more important than the most important things in your life. The most important things in your life are the things you can use to push the cancer back so you can breathe again.  Call the church office for meeting information.

Giving


Thanks to the past and current generosity of ALC members, the church council has been able to 
make charitable gifts the past 2 months to local community organizations. In March, it gave $550 
to FeedMore WNY (what used to Meals on Wheels and the WNY Food Pantry). In April, it 
gave $300 to Kevin Guest House. As the months move on, council will be asking for your help 
identifying other organizations locally to receive gifts. Stay tuned

Kevin Guest House


Did you know Amherst is still working to provide a meal each month to Kevin Guest  House? While as of right now we cannot  provide a meal in person, we have been  having prepared meals delivered each  month. Continuing to commit to this  ministry will take your support. So consider  giving a special gift to this ministry during  the month of April. Donations can be mailed  to church with Kevin Guest House written  on the memo line or they can be made  online through Tithely.

Who is my mother, who is my brother?  All those who gather round Jesus Christ:. Spirit-blown people born of the Gospel.  Sit at the table, round Jesus Christ. Bound by one vision, met for 
one mission We claim each other, round Jesus Christ: Here is my mother, here is my  brother,
Kindred in Spirit, through Jesus  Christ
