Aglow ministry expands to serve men

I’m thankful for this opportunity to share with Alaska Star readers about my favorite ministry, Aglow. We used to be called “Women’s Aglow,” but Aglow is not just for women anymore. In fact, our His Hands Aglow Advisory, Henry Pennington, will speak at our next gathering on April 21 at ACF Church (16620 Brooks Loop) at 7 p.m. in the Youth Room. The topic is “Man Hunt: Calling All Men… to Aglow.”

In mother’s death, the healing power of God delivers

My mom died in an unexpected and tragic way from a preventable complication of back surgery. I was there when it happened. I noticed she wasn’t breathing and initiated first response care. I felt responsible for successfully applying CPR on my mother, and I felt her ribs crack under my hands while I watched her face, looking for signs of response. The memory of it would haunt me later. I prayed for a multitude of things I don’t even remember, and I prayed for His presence.

Reflections at Christmas Time

This morning, I’m sitting at my desk reflecting upon Christ’s return that was the topic of a recent worship service. Each scripture read was filled with encouragement and certainty of Christ coming again. After reading a scripture, the preacher would ask, “Are you ready for his return?”

Three new members joined to serve the Chugiak and Eagle River communities. The newest members in the Eagle River Lions began their volunteerism with the Knik Little League Baseball. The Sleeping Lady Mountian Lions’ new member will be able to fully apply herself to the goals of the Lions with her skills working with nonprofits.

Lions Club extends thanks for help with Easter Egg hunt

Easter weekend this year was a joyful time indeed. Children gleefully awoke to candy and maybe even a soft plushy rabbit to greet them. After everyone had their initial sugar buzz, the family departed for any of the generously-offered egg hunts around the neighborhood. The bells rung, the horns sounded, and the cheering commenced; the hunt was on. It’s a race to find and collect the eggs while trying not to fall in the mad dash through the snow. In no time at all, the quest had finished. Then parents collected special memories and thought of how much kids have grown.

Wounded Warriors

Veterans make up more than one-fifth of Chugiak-Eagle River’s population. To help serve this important part of our community, Lions Club has been fortunate to work in partnership with the Wounded Warrior Project.

Lions to host egg hunt

Here is a little history for those who might like to know about the Easter Bunny. Early German writings from the 1500s mention the legend of the Easter Bunny. As the legend goes, the Easter Bunny visited good children and laid colored eggs for them in nests that the children would make out of their hats. As the story of the Easter bunny spread throughout the country, Easter baskets became the tradition. The bunny expanded its edible Easter gifts to children as the decades went by, with candies, chocolates and even small toys becoming popular deliveries.

Free kids fishing derby, ice cream fundraiser planned for early March

It’s that time of year again for the Annual Eagle River Lions FREE Kids Ice Fishing Derby. Lion Pat Mahoney has chaired this project for 16 years, and has seen thousands of young children with red cheeks and smiling proud faces, holding up their fish to have them measured with the hopes of getting a great prize.

Fire Company gets coupons

The Chugiak Volunteer Fire Company has received help in securing a new fire truck from 5,000 miles away. This week the Courier received a letter from Natalie Brooks who is visiting with her parents at Merrimac, Mass.

“Statehood”

The shouting is over, but the joy and enthusiasm lingers on! I’m speaking, of course, about Congressional approval of statehood for this great country of ours. It was a memorable occasion for the majority of Alaskans the day the word was flashed instantaneously by the miracle of teletype. After years of struggle, red tape, delay and what-not, the victory was finally ours.
