Weekly Update
October 10, 2019


Greetings Christian sisters and brothers,

This coming Sunday, October 13, is the 18th Sunday after Pentecost. The numbers climb as the daylight gets shorter and we continue onward in these increasingly crisp fall days toward Reformation Sunday in two weeks, All Saints' Sunday in three weeks, and Christ the King at the end of November. The Gospel reading for this Sunday is the story of the 10 lepers healed by Jesus, one of whom returns to give thanks. It is a reminder that we are all blessed by God in many ways, and are called to express that gratitude in our lives.

Our adult Sunday school class returns to the Crossings series with our unit on another of the core stories of our faith, "The Promise Land." Join us in the parlor at 8:45 as we discuss the chapter of God's ancient people as recorded in Numbers 21:4-9, Deuteronomy 8:1-20 and Joshua 6:1-25; 24:1-24.

The Men's Bible study is this Saturday at Panera Bread on North High Street at Weisheimer. Join us at 9:00 for fellowship, study and prayer.

Finally, I received a report from the leadership of the Women of the Church that our Central Ohio Conference packaged 629 boxes to be sent to Lutheran World Relief containing 972 quilts, 759 school kits, 691 personal care kits, 102 baby kits, 1236 bars of soap, 6 fabric kits, and 12 fleece blankets. May God bless these donations to be a blessing to those who receive them ... and may God bless the hands that have prepared them ... including yours!!

I will see you in church!
