Mid-Week Messenger
Hello Christ Lutheran!

Return to Home Page

Neither snow, nor rain, nor sleet . . . can keep the Midweek Messenger from its weekly rounds.

Here are six things to keep in mind this week . . .

BIBLE AND BEVERAGES - Because of Thanksgiving, Bible and Beverages happens the third Thursday this month,TONIGHT. We’ll gather at Frisco Tap House in Waugh Chapel. Bible and Beverages features conversation in a relaxed, casual setting. No reservation necessary, just show up! Contact Pastor Dave for more information.

MEN’S BREAKFAST – ALL Men are invited to our monthly Men’s Breakfast Saturday morning at 8:00  a.m. in Zick Hall. Join us for food, fellowship, and a brief Bible Study.

YOUTH MINISTRY MEETING – Parents of Youth and other interested folks are encouraged to attend a Youth Ministry meeting this Sunday at 9:30 a.m. in Zick Hall. As many ideas and as much participation as possible are needed to make Youth Ministry happen!

THANKSGIVING EVE–Our annual Ecumenical Thanksgiving Eve Service happens NEXT Wednesday, November 21, at 7:00 p.m. This year we’re at Pasadena Assembly of God, right behind the Eastern District Police Station on Pasadena Road. Musicians from the five participating churches will lead us in praise, and this year it’s Pastor Dave’s turn to preach.

FALL CLEANUP DAY– We are planning our annual church fall clean-up of leaves, debris, etc., to beautify the grounds for the upcoming holiday and winter season. The clean-up is scheduled for Saturday, November 23rd starting around 9:00 a.m. If you are available and would like to help we can use your services. If you have a rake, back pack leaf blower, tarp, shovel, or some other gardening tools you would like to use bring them along - if not and you would still like to help please don't let that stop you - we will find a rake or some tool for you to use. If you have any questions please contact George Poteet via e-mail at, at church, or via phone at 443-386-4130. 

ANNOUNCING 505 WORSHIP– Saturdays during Advent we’re offering a Saturday evening worship alternative. 505 Worship happens Saturdays December 1, 8, 15, and 22, at 5:05 pm in Zick Hall. You can expect a different worship experience, with interactive engagement with the text instead of sermons, PowerPoint instead of Bulletins, and Communion in the context of a meal (Pizza!) the way they did it in the earliest church. Look for more details in the Messenger and in an insert in this Sunday’s bulletin. Contact Pastor Dave for more information or if you’d like to get involved in any way.

Sunday’s Sermon Scripture: Isaiah 36:1-3, 13-20; 37:1-7; then 2:1-4
Sermon Title: “Who Are You Going to Believe?”

Something to think about between now and Sunday:

Pastor Dave will be at Panera today from 1-3 for Public Office Hours.
