Recap: This past week we learned about how Mary visited her cousin Elizabeth and how they shared the good news of how their children would go on to change the world. Elizabeth would give birth to John who would proclaim to everyone that Jesus was the long awaited messiah. And Mary would go on to give birth to Jesus who go on to save the world!
We had 7 in attendance this past week and are excited to see more of you join us!
This Week: This week we will be learning about the birth of John the Baptist. He was a very interesting character in the gospels and very devoted to calling of proclaiming the coming Messiah. He preached to everyone who listen, baptized them, and urged them to acknowledge and repent their sins and change their lives.
*We are also pleased to announce that our Sunday School service project this year will be collecting donations for Orphan Angels Cat Shelter. We are looking for donations of Cat Chow Naturals cat and/or kitten food, cans of pate-cut cat food, and unscented clumping cat litter. You may also donate money directly to Orphan Angels through PayPal on their website. A representative from Orphan Angels will be joining us Sunday, October 25th at 9:00am to talk to us about their shelter and explain to our kids how the shelter has served to help cats and kittens in our community.*
Please join us! We have plenty of face shields and sanitizer for COVID safety. Worship services have now returned to be indoors and we hope you will also attend either or Saturday 6pm service, Sunday 8am service, or our Sunday 10:15am service.
Over the course of summer, I have spoken with several of our Faith Lutheran members who recalled how important Sunday School, VBS, and church summer camp was to shaping who they would become as a person. As an adult, I can attest that often day-to-day adult life can feel like a blur. But the memories of being a kid and learning about Jesus and the Bible for the first time are as vivid as ever!
Jesus said in Luke 17:18, "Assuredly I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will never enter it." These days of learning about God as child will not only stick with you forever, but they will shape the type of faith God desires us to have as adults.
See you all Sunday!
