Weekly Update
September 19, 2019


Hello friends,

This coming Sunday, September 22, is the 15th Sunday after Pentecost. The assigned Gospel reading is a tricky one ... the parable of the shrewd manager, who Jesus admires for making friends for himself using dishonest wealth. Perhaps the most challenging part of this passage is Jesus' final words to us, "You cannot serve God and wealth." Yes, there is good news here! Come consider what it is with your Christian community!

Our adult Sunday school will continue on the Crossings study, moving now to the story of the Exodus. Join us as we consider what these key stories of the faith mean for our discipleship today.

One week from Sunday - September 29 - is the Fall Fling Sunday. We begin with a contemporary worship service in the sanctuary at 10:00. This time we are planning to provide the service in bulletin form instead of projecting it up on a screen. After some feedback, we thought this would be the best way to follow along. We also plan to print a simple melody for the words of the songs in the bulletin so that those who can read music will be better able to sing along.
After the worship we will have a picnic featuring grilled brats and hot dogs and drinks. You are invited to bring a side dish or a dessert to share. Everything else will be provided. There will also be a corn-hole tournament that you can sign up to join!! It is sure to be a great day of worship, food, fun and fellowship!

The Christian Education committee asked me to send out a link to the sign up genius for teaching our Sunday school classes. You can do it week by week, and the materials are provided. Please check out what is available and prayerfully consider helping out!!


I will see you in church!
