THE ADULT BIBLE CLASS, led by Pastor Lueck and meeting in the church basement at 9:15 a.m. is studying “Lutheran Doctrine and Practice Today”.
TODAY IN SUNDAY SCHOOL, the children will complete their study of how God worked in Joseph’s life. “Joseph Forgives” and reveals himself to his brothers, telling them that though they meant evil, God used their acts for good. Our Lord Jesus Christ reveals Himself to us and forgives us in His Holy Word and Sacraments. Families could discuss, “How was God with Joseph, blessing him through all that happened, the good and the bad? How has God turned bad or evil things in your life or world into blessings for your good?”
LWML UPDATE: The LWML is pinning and sewing quilts for Lutheran World Relief TODAY from 1-4:00 p.m. We will meet upstairs in the Quilting Room. If you have a portable sewing machine and would like to hem quilts or help pin the hems of quilts, we would appreciate your help.
THE BOARD OF CHRISTIAN EDUCATION is planning a Work Day on Saturday, October 10th at 8:30 a.m. We will be cleaning out and re-organizing the Day Care/Youth area located in the basement of the church.
