Having just completed this year’s “God’s Work; Our Hands” service project and this year’s Sunday School registration this past weekend, we now kick off our Sunday School year this coming Sunday (Sept. 20)! All the younger ones will meet in the sanctuary for their opening, then go from there to their classes. The older kids (Confirmation age and up) and the adults will all meet in the Fellowship Hall with everyone who went to Detroit this past summer for the National ELCA Youth Gathering! (Cover story on the September issue of “The Lutheran” magazine). Please join us to hear some personal stories from that gathering and what an important event this was for young people from all around the country, the people of Detroit, and our whole church. Not to be missed!
As this new Sunday School year begins, plan on being a part of this nurturing, faith building, hour on Sunday mornings. Whether you have a child or grandchild in our pre-K Sunday School class, or are yourself in your 80s or 90s and are in one of our adult classes, or are somewhere in between, there is no better place to be than around God’s people as we share and live out God’s story and wrestle together with the issues of the day. There really is something for everyone during that hour between worship, from 9:45-10:45 each Sunday morning. Hope to see you there.
Peace and Joy to your and yours. Pastor Jack Diehl +
