Happenings around here

I’ve been slow to get things on the website. For that I apologize. It has been a hectic season, and I want to share with you some of the stuff we’ve been working on and what will be coming up.

Last Sunday was the congregational meeting where the proposed budget for next year was presented and we walked through a discussion of moving from vision to mission. The previous post highlights that separately, but a lot of time and effor have gone into pulling those things together.

We will have a thanksgiving service on Wed, Nov 25 at 7 PM. Come sing and give thanks before the eating of the bird.

The Sunday following Thanksgiving is the start of Advent – the start of the new church year. We have a few things planned:
1) On Friday’s during Advent I will be hosting dinner. Twelve is roughly the comfort level for a family style dinner, so I’m taking reservations for you or any guests that you might like to invite. Give me or the office a call to reserve you seat at an Advent dinner.
2) We will be publishing an Advent devotional booklet. In preping for the season I came accross a gorgeous series of what were supposed to be bulletin covers (peek below). They will be the book covers and the theme of each weeks devotions.

I’ve been preping a basic lutheran teachings class that will start on Dec 6th in the 11 PM Sunday School hour. For anyone who would like to consider formal membership – this is the class. We will be using the Augsburg Confession as the source material. This should last about 6 weeks or longer depending upon class interest. I’d invite everyone to attend. It would be great to be forced to move rooms.

We continue to walk through Genesis on Thursday mornings at 10 AM

The confirmation class has passed out of the Old Testament overvew and is now reading the Gospel of Luke.

And that doesn’t touch on Community Lutheran, Operation Christmas Child, the fixing of the water drain and other other stuff going on.

  1. We thank you for your willingness to teach the Lutheran class starting in December. I can think of at least five people who will be there.
