It is time for the fall shift in schedule. This Sunday we will go back to two worship services. Our traditional service will be at the usual time of 9:00, with the Chancel Choir back from their summer hiatus. The third graders will receive their Bibles and 3 year-olds their nursery lambs at the first service. Sunday School for all ages will begin at 10:15. Our Synergy service, with the praise team, begins at 11:15. The text for this Sunday is Luke 14:25-33, and my sermon title is “Ready for Liftoff?”
Also, we are trying to start up a book club, and an initial meeting exploring what kinds of books people might be interested in, and when would be a good time to meet, will be held in between services on Sunday, at 10:15, in the library.
LOGOS begins next Wednesday, September 11, and we need some more volunteers. LOGOS is a ministry that meets from 5:15 pm to 7:00 p.m. for children and youth in 1st through 8th grades. Each week the children spend time in Recreation, Worship Skills, Bible Study and a Family Dinner. Dinner is served family style at table with members of the congregation serving at table parents. At LOGOS children learn what it means to be a disciple of Christ where we are all created in the image of God and we are all children of God. It is a wonderful ministry that touches the lives of many young people. If you think you might be willing to help, contact Pastor Beth or Danyel Kolek.
Finally, there is a women’s retreat coming up on next Saturday, September 14, entitled “Live Life Laughingly.” It sounds like a lot of fun, but if you are interested in going you need to sign up by next Tuesday, September 10th. Contact Pastor Beth for more information.
Stay in One Peace,
