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
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.
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!
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!
