Because Lutherans serve and love our neighbors. "God's work. Our hands." Sunday was a fabulous opportunity to put faith into action by assembling school kits and personal care kits, tying quilts, writing cards, and and sharing messages of welcome and love to people near home and across the globe. Hands were busy, and hearts are full. See more pics of the day here. We are better together.

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION

CHILDREN & YOUTH EDUCATION

CHILDREN'S CHURCH begins September 3 for our PK to 5th grade learners. During worship the Vicars will lead students to designated classrooms, just down the hall from the sanctuary, as we begin the "Gathering Hymn" and then guide them back as we "Share the Peace." We hope you will make this a part of your family's weekly worship rhythm!

3RD GRADE BIBLE CLASS & PRESENTATION is offered Sunday, September 17 at 9am in the Family Life Center. Pastor Marcus offers a brief overview of the Bible, its testaments, and its history. Each student will be presented with their own Bible, along with book tabs to mark each books' beginning, as well as a personalized name plate. During the worship service that follows, the Bibles are blessed and presented by each student’s parents or guardians. RSVP to Pastor Marcus by September 8th. 

THE COMPASS COOPERATIVE is a weekly gathering on Sundays at 6pm for 6th to 12th grade students, hosted by our four church partners - Emanuel's, St. Andrew's, Spirit of Joy, and Friedens Church- and held on Spirit of Joy's campus. We will eat together, worship together, play games, and just enjoy each other's company. All are truly welcome so please, come join us!

THE HERITAGE CLASS meets at 9:15 am Sunday mornings on the 3rd floor in room 307. Participants explore the deeper meaning found in the Bible and seek to unlock its wisdom through fellowship and robust group discussion. The aim is to make the Bible relevant and applicable to daily life.
