Special Worship Schedule and Location – October 30
No Service at MLLC on October 30 – Worship at Lutherhill instead.
We will have worship on Sunday, October 30, but it will not be at MLLC. Worship will be held at our local Lutheran Church camp, Lutherhill Ministries. We will gather for worship at 9:30 a.m. in the Carby Chapel on the camp grounds. The photo above shows the Carby Chapel from the road and parking lot viewpoint.
After Worship – kids time
Sunday School for children, led by Lutherhill staff
We look to have a strong showing from the people of Martin Luther Lutheran Church, and all the Crossroads churches, for this special event.
Remember, we will not have a worship service on October 30 at MLLC (or any of the Crossroads Shared Lutheran Ministry congregations).
MLLC will offer the usual, Saturday evening service on October 29, at 6 p.m. – All are welcome.
The Crossroads Shared Ministry Committee chose this date for our shared worship service due to it being a special day for Lutheran Christians. October 31, 1517, was when Martin Luther posted the 95 Theses on the Castle Church Door in Wittenberg, Germany. Here is a link for a modern English version of this important, Lutheran document.
Regarding your offerings:
The offering at the 4 Church service may be given as follows –
- By your regular offering envelope from your respective church.
- Cash or check –
The offering will then be separated by tellers –
- Envelopes will go to each respective church
- Checks (without envelopes) will go to the Church shown as the payee
- All cash will be counted and given to the A.M.E.N. Food Pantry in La Grange.
- There will also be a separate basket at the back of the church for separate & special donations toward Lutherhill’s capital campaign that has been underway since before COVID for funding the construction of a new dining hall near Carby Chapel.
Getting to Lutherhill
We encourage you to bring folks who may be uncomfortable traveling to the camp on their own, or who would need a ride. This will be a wonderful event for all ages.
Lutherhill is located just north of La Grange at 3782 Lutherhill Rd, La Grange, TX 78945. Once you enter the main camp entrance, you will be heading east. Follow the long gravel road until you see the signs for Carby Chapel. This will lead you to follow a road to the left/north, which leads to the chapel. This part of the camp is depicted on the map noted right below on this page.
Carby Chapel is in the north central part of the camp.
Here is a close up of the portion of a map with Carby Chapel and nearby parking.
This is a once a year special event in which we gather with our group of 4 Crossroads Shared Lutheran Ministry partner churches for a time of worship and learning.
