Happy Reformation,

Here we are at the cusp of 502 years of Lutheranism and we are ready to celebrate!

NEEDED: for pastor’s office; a small bookshelf. Preferably 3-4 shelves no higher that 4 feet tall and 3 feet wide. If you happen to have one lying around that seems it might work, please let me know. Thanks.

Wednesday and Sunday morning our Bible Study groups will wrap our book, “Martin Luther and the Call Life” by; Mark Tranvik. Next Month we begin looking at the Prophets of the Old Testament. We will do a sweep of many of the major and minor prophets as we prepare for Advent and Christmas.

NEW MEMBER CLASS Tonight 7pm: Please see Pastor Grace if you are interested in attending this class, also if you are interested in membership and cannot make this date. We are flexible.

FALL FEST: Families are invited to come celebrate Halloween and Fall on Sunday afternoon at church. 2:30-5:30 there will be games, crafts, food and at 5pm Trunk or Treating in our parking lot. This event is free of charge BUT, we do ask you to bring a nonperishable food item for our Thanksgiving baskets we prepare thru Love Inc. See list below for items needed.

THIS SUNDAY---REFORAMTION/ALL SAINTS SUNDAY: This year, mostly due to my vacation and my love of both key days in our church year, we are celebrating them together on October 27th. As the 2 days are actually, just a few hours apart in real time. (Oct 31 and Nov 1st) We will begin our service as Reformation with a Baptism. Luther would be proud!! Then move into celebrating our Saints. As part of this special worship we are inviting you to bring a picture or two of people in your life that have gone to their eternal glory and were an important part of your life and faith journey. We will display them throughout the sanctuary, surrounding us. As protesters (Protestants) the color of the day is RED. You are invited to wear red that day.
