Sunday Morning Worship Schedule
“What is worship and why does it matter?” Worship begins with the simple act of gathering. “The Holy Spirit calls us to together as the people of God.”. That is how Article 7 of the Augsburg Confession defines church: God calling us together around word and sacraments. God shows up, all the time! Because of what God does, we are church.
“When we gather for worship we hear God’s word or promise. We confess our helplessness and receive forgiveness. We pray and we welcome new brothers and sisters through baptism, promising to support them in their walk in faith. We are fed with the bread of life and receive our Lord poured out for us. And then we are sent back into the world. Worship is essential for the church’s life and service.” Elizabeth Eaton, Presiding Bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America

First Communion Classes
I have to confess that these days family and children’s ministry is suffering from a lack of teachers and leaders. Difficulty in getting volunteers is related to the decreasing attendance and participation we see in many churches and Sunday schools these. B,ut it isn’t a reason to despair. There are things we can do to bless the lives of those who God entrusted to our family and children’s ministry.
Would you join us in prayer? Pray regularly for God’s help as you identify and call volunteers. In Matthew 9:36-38, we read this about Jesus: “When he saw the crowds, he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, ‘The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore ask the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.’”
