Weekly Update


Greetings, CHLC family and friends!

Today is the first official day of fall, and we are looking forward to hotter than usual temperatures this weekend. I hope you can enjoy God's good creation before the cold temperatures drive us all inside.

This Sunday is the 16th Sunday after Pentecost, and we will read the second of Matthew's parables of the Kingdom, this one from Matthew 20:1-16.

The adults will continue in our, "By Heart" study of the small catechism with chapter 2, dealing with the 10 Commandments. I know the chapter is rather long, but please try to read it all before Sunday.

This will be the final Sunday that we will collect financial donations for Hurricane relief through the Gulf Coast Synod of the ELCA. Whatever has been given will be added to the $1,000 grant that our Endowment committee approved, and sent for direct assistance.

Many folks remember Cindy (Michaels) Stryker. After many years of preparation, Cindy is being ordained into the ministry of Word and Sacrament on Saturday morning, October 7 at 10:30 a.m. in Strongsville, Ohio. She has been called to serve St. John Lutheran Church in Canal Fulton, but outside of Canton.

I will see you in worship!
