Sunday Adult ED Study

Sunday's adult ed will journal through the book "40-day Journey with Martin Luther, edited by Gracia M. Grindal.  Drawing from the vast collection of Luther's sermons and other works, Grindal selects forty inspiring passages that raise profound truths about faith and life.

Our first gathering is Sunday October 8 at 9:45 am and we will begin the "40 day Journey with Martin Luther" as our guide to the life of prayer and meditation on the foundational truths of Christian faith.

I have six books to loan or you can order your personal paperback or kindle copy.  Cost is around $13.   I have put together a journal for each to use, but you can bring your own journal too.

Please send an email to wendyroeder /at/ gmail if you are coming or if you have questions.

In Christ's love,
Parish Ed Committee

Special YOUTH presentation, Sunday, September 9, from 9:45-10:45am

The 12 Youth and 2 Leaders that attended the ELCA Youth Gathering in Houston this summer ARE BACK and want to share their amazing trip with YOU and also THANK YOU for supporting them with prayer and contributions. 

 Join us Sunday, September 9, from 9:45-10:45 am.

2018 ELCA Youth Gathering theme was "This Changes Everything." Ephesians 2:8 "For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God."


The Gathering logo is a visual representation of the theme and the 2018 Gathering experience. It incorporates the coming together of a mosaic to reflect the diverse host city of Houston, as well as the idea that we are a church where all are imperfect and incomplete, yet we each belong in – and have an important place in – God's masterpiece. The cross at the center of the logo is the focus – it is God's grace, through Christ's life, death and resurrection, that changes everything for all people.

 Appetizers will be provided (think BBQ!)

See you on September 9th
