ARTOS This greek word for bread is generic. It applies to bread in general. In August, we will be changing our communion wafers to a gluten free style. If you want to read more about the theology of our communion practice, search for LCMS CTCR Theology and Practice of the Lord’s Supper to read the document online.
REDEEMING LIFE MATERNITY HOME BABY BOTTLE CAMPAIGN By giving to our Baby Bottle Campaign you’re helping relieve financial and emotional pressures to the women we serve. Your gift helps meet our growing needs! Please pick up a baby bottle at one of the exits and fill it with coins, cash, or a check and return it by July 31st.
GENEROUS LIVING Your offerings play a large role across the world. From support of our national LCMS church body, to the SELC district, to our mission work, to our support of the seminaries and vicarage program, to our participation in the National Youth Gathering, and to our support of the Lutheran Haven. The Lord uses us to spread the Gospel throughout the nation and the world. Add these items to your weekly prayers and ask the Lord to help you grow in compassion for others and love for His work.
JOY IS A GIFT God gives joy. Like all good things, joy is a gift. Lutherans are people who trust that all good things are given to us as gifts from our loving heavenly Father (James 1:17). God’s primary gift is His Son, our Savior Jesus Christ (John 3:16). Through the death and resurrection of Jesus, God reconciled the world to Himself (2 Cor. 5:21). This is God’s gift, by grace, to a fallen creation (Eph. 2:8–9). We respond to God’s good gifts with joy. Find out more at joyfullylutheran.org.
SELFIE? Our new vicar, Hayden Lukas and new pastor, Rev. Tige Culbertson will be arriving soon. As they work in the congregation, it is EXTREMELY helpful for them to put names and faces together. Please log in to our membership program and add a selfie! It’s really easy on the app or upload one on your computer at myinfo.sllcs.org
