Hello Christ Lutheran!
Return to Home Page

Five things to keep in mind this week . . .

--- Sunday worship this week will be exciting - we have two Confirmation Faith Statements and a brief Ministry Moment from a guest speaker. The sermon is therefore guaranteed to be five minutes or less!

--- Mark your calendar now: September 10 is Rally Day! This year for the first time we’ll have ONE SERVICE at 10:15 am. Both Traditional and Contemporary music will be included. That way EVERYBODY can go to the picnic right after worship!

--- Also on Rally Day, Sunday School will have a Special Opening from 9:30 to 10 a.m. Parents and young people are invited to meet teachers and classmates!

--- Speaking of Sunday School, we need two more teachers for this year. No teaching experience is needed, just a love of Jesus and children. It’s an every-other-week commitment. You will need to pass a background check. Please contact Tara Fontz (tarafontz45@gmail.com) if you feel you might be called to serve in this way.

--- Our Refugee Working Group invites you to hear Reverend Kevin Jacobson this Sunday (August 20) at 9:00 a.m. He is Assistant Director for Outreach for Lutheran Immigration and Refugee services, and will help us discern how God is calling us to serve the “strangers” in our midst. Reverend Jacobson will be speaking in Zick Hall.

The Scripture by Request for Sunday is
John 17
The Sermon Title is “Jesus Prays for US”
