NOISY OFFERING

THANK YOU! for your support of the children & youth’s noisy offering. We were able to make 25 school kits and 25 personal hygiene kits for Lutheran World Relief.  We are putting tracking labels on our boxes so we can find out what country they are being delivered to.  For the next quarter we are splitting it up.  Our October offering  of  $80.00 went to the CROP Walk through Church World Services.  We had some members that walked in this event to raise awareness and funds for hunger within our community and in other parts of the US.  During the months of November and December we plan to purchase items so we can make/assemble kits for the Foster Love Project. These kits include PJs, story books, stuffed animal…for younger children; and older children receive PJs, journal, coloring book & colored pencils…These are then placed in a backpack or duffle bag.  The Foster Love Project provides these resources to foster children within our communities

LEARN & GROW WEDNESDAYS

Wednesday evenings have been busy downstairs at Zion’s with Learn & Grow Wednesdays, our alternative to Sunday School for all of our parish children 2 years through 5th grade.  These classes have been fun-filled with laughter as we learn Bible stories and how we can follow Jesus.  Classes coincide with the same time as Confirmation (5:45 PM).  This Christian Education activity is being offered as Sunday mornings may be too busy with other extra activities for children and youth.  As a reminder, a Quiet Communion service is offered on Wednesdays at 7:00 PM.  Thank you to Maria Stampahar for being our lead teacher.

CONFIRMATION/CATECHISM

Catechism classes continue on Wednesday evenings from 5:45 – 6:35 PM with Pastor Steiner.  Classes are held at Zion’s and include discussions on scripture and the Small Catechism, learning videos from time to time, and occasional hands-on mission projects.    Normal ages for catechism are 7th-8th grade.  Please speak with Pastor Steiner if you have any questions.

“What Can We Give God?

“We cannot give God anything; for everything is already His,

and all we have comes from Him.

We can only give Him praise, thanks, and honor.”
