“Faith is a living and unshakable confidence, a belief in the grace of God so assured that a man would die a thousand deaths for its sake.

Martin Luther

 

LWML Sunday is October 6.  The Lutheran Women’s Missionary League (LWML) is the official women’s auxiliary of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod. Since 1942, the LWML has affirmed each woman’s identity as a child of God and her relationship with Jesus Christ. Lutheran Women in Mission are encouraged and equipped to live out their lives in active mission ministries and to support missions around the world through their sacrificial gifts of Mite Box offerings and tireless service. As God’s children, we rest in the assurance that He loves us and sent His Son to redeem us. God is our rock and salvation. That firm foundation enables us to reach out into a changing world in need of the Gospel. Please wear some form of purple.

 

LUTHERAN WORLD RELIEF – Lutheran World Relief kits will be assembled October 1 at 9:30 at the church. Many hands will be needed to help assemble the kits! The kits will be dedicated on October 6 and Pastor Ryan will take them to the drop off center that afternoon. If you have any questions, please contact Roz.

 

Pledge Sunday is October 20. This is the time for you to prayerfully consider the blessings God as provided you in order for you to share in supporting His mission and extending His kingdom. Our giving of time, talents and treasure should be determined on what God has given us out of His love for us. Let the Holy Spirit guide you in your decision and commitment. There will be a dinner after the service. Please fill out your reservation cards and turn them in by October 6.

 

Redeemer Lutheran's turn to serve the Friendship Feast during the month of October will be moved to the THIRD Monday of this month, which will be October 21. You can volunteer to help prepare, serve, or clean up at either Feast by contacting Rosalind Burger.
