Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church
Here are five things to keep in mind this week . . .
VBS SUNDAY – All week more than 50 young people have laughed, learned, and experienced God’s love at VBS. On Sunday, their families are invited to attend worship and they will sing VBS songs. Join us at 10 a.m. for this festive Sunday which will also feature a baptism!
YOUTH GATHERING SHARING – During the Food and Fellowship timeafter worship this Sunday, they young people and chaperons who attended the ELCA Youth Gathering in Houston will share audio/visual reflections of their experience. They will also thank the congregation for their support. You are invited to stay after worship for this meaningful presentation in Zick Hall.
FANTASY FOOTBALL – The draft for our CELC Fantasy Football Leaguewill be held after worship on August 26. There is no cost to play. Please let League Commissioner Pastor Dave know if you will be part of our league this year. There will be pizza to help get us through those late draft rounds.
PICTURE DIRECTORY – Don’t forget to sign up soon to get your family’s preferred photography appointment. You can sign up by using the link on our website Monday through Saturday, and at the table in the lobby after church on Sundays.
PICTURE DIRECTORY HELP WANTED – Helping with the Picture Directory is a great way to serve the church AND to meet new people! If you can help sign up folks after worship OR help sign in folks at photography appointments, please contact CELC Council Member Sharon Bratcher- firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sunday’s Sermon Scripture: Exodus 5:1-9
Sermon Title: “A Hard-Hearted Man”
(BIBLE VILLAINS Week Two)
Something to think about between now and Sunday:
What do you think causes someone to be “hard-hearted?” Is it possible for a heart to soften?
PS Pastor Dave WILL NOT be at Panera today from 1-3 for Public Office Hours. He is taking ½ vacation days after VBS this week.
