Colorful Year of Sunday School Begins
On September 15th the Redeemer Sunday School started off on a trip to “Follow and Obey God’s Colorful Way”. First we started with a parent meeting at 9am where the kids and parents met their teachers Ms. Natasha (3K-4K), Ms. Kristy (K-2nd grade), Ms. Brianna (3rd -5th grade) and Alex (helper). Then the kids went to the choir loft where they met music leader Ms. Shannon, who started teaching them the new song about Rainbows! After singing, kids and teachers went to their class areas and worked on Rainbow Projects, look for them decorating the hallway outside the office and Sunday School Classrooms. When crafts were done, all classes got together to play with the parachute and enjoy and rainbow snack. It’s going to be a very COLORFUL year in Sunday School.
Sunday Adult Forum
The Adult Forum will begin Sunday, September 14th between services at 9:15 in the Fireside Room. We will discuss subjects of interest to the group including items from Bible Study, Lutheran Theology and Faith, Issues in Contemporary Faith and Life. Consider joining us. You don’t have to be there every Sunday so please come when you can.
Week Night Adult Study
The Week Night Adult Study group will resume meeting on Thursday night, September 25th, at 6:00 PM in the Fireside Room. This year we will meet once a month on the fourth Thursday of the month at 6:00 PM. The first several discussions will be centered on prayer. If prayer is the place where God and human beings meet then we should try to learn about it and understand it and its place in our lives. We will consider questions like:
• Does prayer work? Does it work the way we think it should?
• Is God listening? Why should he and why should He care?
• Why do so many prayers go unanswered? Or do they? Does it really help with physical healing?
• Why does God let the world go on as it does and not intervene?
• Does prayer change God or change me?
• If God knows everything, what’s the point?
• What importance does God place on prayer? Why should we value prayer?
Please plan on joining us. The discussion should be very interesting. Contact Gary Bennett or the church office to sign-up.
Strategic Planning Luncheon & Meeting – Oct. 5th
There will NOT BE AN 8:00AM SERVICE SUNDAY OCTOBER 5TH. The Strategic Planning Team needs our participation at the Sunday Luncheon and follow up discussion. By having only the 10:30AM service, attending the luncheon and discussion becomes more convenient.
The Strategic Planning Team is inviting you to stay after the 10:30 service on Sunday, October 5th for lunch and some interesting discussion regarding our historical reflections of Redeemer Lutheran Church’s past. NO PACKER GAME THAT SUNDAY.
This is Step One towards Discerning Our Congregation’s Future. More information on this subject at today’s service and more services to come. We believe this will intrigue you and give you a warm feeling about Redeemer.
We will need some help from the great cooks and bakers in this congregation. We will let you know of our needs.
Thank you in advance for putting this on your calendar.
