Post Rally Day – Reaching Out, Sharing our Mission
We’ve kicked off our Sunday School year and Wednesday nights with an opportunity to “reach out.” This fall, we’ll take the time to be intentional about inviting others into the mission and ministry we share. In the weeks prior, reusable grocery bags were distributed among the congregation, and our PoP family and friends brought them back filled with food and personal hygiene supplies that were donated to RCS!
Adult Education in the Fall – Sundays
Good News for All: The Gospel of Luke
We continue our walk through Luke’s inspiring account of the gospel. We have seen how he singlehandedly has given us the foundation of several festivals of the Church Year. Only in Luke do we hear such stories of our Lord known as the Good Samaritan and the Prodigal Son.
With most of our gospel readings in worship this year coming from Luke, it’s a wonderful opportunity to give his inspiring words a closer look. Join us in the COC between worship times to walk through Luke’s gospel account. No prerequisites required!
Additional Learning Opportunities – Wednesdays
Confronting Death | Wednesday at 6:15PM in the COC
Most of us are uncomfortable talking about serious illness. But death comes to us all. During our time together on Wednesdays, we will have opportunities to share our stories of illness and grieving, as well as the source of our strength. Using words of faith, hymns and a series of stories by Walt Wangerin (an ELCA pastor and author), we’ll talk about our journeys of faith.
February 6 – “But what about my family? Friends? Future?” How does our faith in Jesus help us (and those we care about) cope?
February 13 – “Jesus wept.” Do we really need to be stronger than Jesus?
February 20 – “It hurts so much.” What does God have to do with our pain and suffering?
February 27 – “Into your hands, merciful Savior, we commend your servant…” We live by faith, not by sight, even as we die.
