Stephen Ministry Facts

He asked you last night over dinner.
The ring is beautiful.
And now there’s so much to do before the wedding, and so many questions about the future. During the happy, busy time of your engagement, a Stephen Minister can be there for you to listen and care.
A (new) training class for Stephen Ministries is starting soon. Consider this ministry opportunity. For more information, contact Pastor Thomas, Betty Textor or Abbe Heemeier. Be a working Christian.

Stewardship Notes:
Ephesians 3:14-15 - “For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named.”
We have a Father in heaven. He cares for us. He knows how to give us all good things. This knowledge frees us from worry and anxiety. Jesus returned to this theme again and again, and we should take Him at His Word. Our Father will care for us, so we can be secure in generosity and faithful living.

Due to security concerns – from now on the entry door into the office area, the office door, and pastor’s office will remain locked during Bible Study/Sunday School hour as well as during the Divine Service on Sunday mornings. We are trying to be proactive in these troubled times. We know that this might cause some difficulties, but it is an attempt to control traffic and to monitor who is coming into the building especially during those times when our attention is (and should be) elsewhere. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Faith Step – Be a role model/mentor to a child in our church or your neighborhood. One way to do this in our church is to participate in Connecting Generations.

Connecting Generations – interested adults, see Freda, if you wish to participate.

LWML Fall Rally – Saturday Oct. 3rd   Trinity Camp 9:00am to 2:30pm theme “Let your Light Shine.” Contact Freda for more information.

Global Health – a box of 50 bars of soap was sent to them this past week. Thanks to all who donated.

Orphan Grain Train – this past Friday Roger and Mary headed to Nebraska with our donations to OGT. Donations included 23 girls dresses, 14 boys shorts, a mosquito net, 33 pairs of eyeglasses, 12 tote bags, and 56 bars of soap, 2 lap quilts, 6 tote bags filled with items for newborns and their moms, 17 hand towels and washcloths, and 28 miscellaneous clothing items.
Thanks to the Sewn With Love Club and all who donated items. Pray for the people receiving these items that they may be blessed and know that God loves them.
