You are Invited to Help

Sunday, August 29, 11 a.m. and following.

The Christian Education Committee is sponsoring a work day this Sunday, August 29.  The goal is to clean up and prepare the Education Wing of the building for the coming Sunday School year.   There will be cleaning, sorting, moving of furniture, etc. to get the spaces ready.  Some of these spaces need extra work to transform the rooms from former day school rooms into Sunday School rooms.  We want to make the spaces more inviting and joyful for our numerous Sunday School students and their families.

The committee is providing lunch for volunteers.  Plan on joining the other volunteers for lunch and active service this Sunday, August 29, after the 10:00 a.m. worship service.   This work day will begin around 11:00 a.m.

This Sunday: Backpack and Student Blessing

Lutherhill Sunday 2015 Students

Blessing of Students and their Backpacks – August 21 & 22

Mark your calendars now to plan to attend worship on this special Sunday.  We invite students of all ages to attend worship on Satuday, August 21, at 6:00 p.m., or Sunday, August 22, at 10:00 a.m.  At each of these services we will pray for students of all ages and situations.  It is not required that the students bring a backpack, but, if the student has one, he or she is encouraged to bring it.

This is an opportunity for students to be involved in their faith every day of the week.  We connect their school life with how these students grow and learn as an extension of their connection with Jesus.

We involve students of a wide variety of situations.  Over the years we have involved students in preschool through graduate school.  We have involved students who are enrolled in public schools, private schools, and home school programs.  We have involved students who are quite young through those well into their adults years.

Worship will be at our usual times of 6:00 p.m.  on Saturday and 10:00 a.m. on Sunday.  Remember to bring your backpack, if you use one.  Most important is that we gather together in prayer and thanksgiving as we begin our new school year.

Special note: This will also be our weekend to celebrate our partnership with Lutherhill Ministries.  Our guest preacher for Saturday and Sunday will be Matt Kindsvatter, executive director of Lutherhill Ministries.
