The children and youth of MLLC presented a wonderful Christmas Program on Sunday, December 11. This took place as part of our regular worship service – Sundays at 9:45 a.m.
The play this year was entitled “Simply Christmas”. This combined God’s Word with songs, stories, humor and action in telling the story of the birth of Jesus Christ our Lord.
Thank you to the families, children, teens, musicians and adult leaders who put in a great amount of time to prepare and present this excellent program.
After worship the congregation gathered in the Fellowship Hall for a soup lunch and a Happy Birthday Jesus cake for dessert.
The 2014 Sunday School Children’s Christmas Program is currently in rehearsals. The children and adults are working faithfully to prepare for this annual presentation. This is always a fantastic program and we are thankful for the leaders, musicians and cast who make it happen each year. All are invited to attend worship on December 14 as these young people present the good news that Jesus Christ is born.
Worship at 9:00 a.m. – the program will be the Word of God on this day, replacing the readings. Holy Communion will be offered as usual.
~10:15 a.m. – Jesus’ Birthday and Christmas Brunch pot luck. All are invited to this new tradition of MLLC. We will gather in the Fellowship Hall for this special event. Please know that this is for all ages and it was very well attended last year.

Members of the staff of Lutherhill Ministries will be leading our Sunday School programming on Sunday, March 30, at 10:10 a.m. At MLLC we have enjoyed the ministries of Lutherhill for many years. Some years they have helped us lead our Vacation Bible School (see photo above of Lutherhill staff, parent volunteers and children from our 2009 VBS). A few times each year we invite our friends at Lutherhill to lead special programs with our children’s Sunday School. This weekend is one of those special Sunday visits.
Lutherhill Ministries is an excellent Lutheran camping and retreat ministry headquartered in our own Fayette County, Texas.
Bring your family this weekend to worship at 9 a.m., and then join in the fun and learning at 10:10 a.m. with the delightful staff of Lutherhill Ministries.

The main playground of Martin Luther Lutheran Church is getting a major addition. The new playground equipment is being installed this week. The old equipment was deteriorating significantly and was in need of replacement. Now the children of our Sunday School and the Martin Luther Lutheran School (MLLS) will have fresh and more exciting play equipment for recess and play times.
We are very thankful to the the great number of generous donors who have given memorial gifts to MLLS in recent years. Through their kindness the congregation has been able to pay for the equipment and for professional installation of the new set. Thank you all very much for your donations, prayers and support. The kids are going to love it!
We will have more photos soon of the completed set up.
