“Inspirational Worship: Welcome to the Heart of Christ in the City” is the third of four videos that will highlight each area of the mission statement of Christ Lutheran Church.
The mission statement of Christ Lutheran Church is to connect people to Jesus through:
- Inspirational Worship
- Loving Service
- Caring Fellowship
- Relevant Education
so that they may know, and grow in, his love.
Sunday, September 7 is Rally Day. Plan to make a day of it – Worship, BBQ Meal, and an afternoon of activities for all ages. Let’s come together to celebrate Relevant Education at Christ! Tickets for the 12 noon meal are for sale TODAY at $8 for Adults and $4 for Children (5-12). Please purchase your tickets in advance in order to help us know how much food to prepare.
Carnival fun on Rally Day will be indoors (Bingo, Cake Walk, Country Store) and outdoors (Carnival Games, Face Painting, Putt-Putt Golf, Spin Art). Please sign up in the narthex to help with some aspect of the event and/or bring items; volunteers are vital toward the vitality of Rally Day! Please contact Jordan or Christian Education committee members (Jane Carrion, Mark Herber) for more information on Rally Day 2014.
At Christ, we spread out a Vacation Bible School curriculum over the course of the summer and in 2014, our theme is “Weird Animals: Where Jesus’ Love is One of a Kind.” Each Sunday morning (9:30-10:30 am) through August 31, children age 3 – Grade 5 will experience that nothing compares to the extraordinary love of Jesus. They’ll sing and serve, and spend time at stations and act in dramas, do experiments, eat snacks, make crafts, play games, and watch videos.
The offerings that the children bring for the VBS hour will go toward the work that Food for the Poor, Inc. is doing “Saving Lives… Transforming Communities… Renewing Hope” in Latin America and the Caribbean.
This summer, the Youth Bible Study will be discussing The History Channel’s The Bible series, and helping with VBS Games and Drama. In September after Rally Day, our young people will move up to their next grade level in Kingdom Quest or Youth Bible Study. Please contact Jordan for details.
R&R gets rolling again for the Fall Season. On Thursday, September 4th at 11:30 am we will gather for a “tour” via DVD of ancient Ephesus and Sardis.
“Battle Ready!” – Join us beginning Tuesday, September 16 as we begin a fresh, new, exciting men’s study for the fall! We will be led through the theme of being “Battle Ready”. We’ll explore what it means to be men of God, and how we can recognize and prepare ourselves for the daily attacks we encounter in our spiritual lives.
“Battle Ready” will begin on Tuesday, September 16 @ 7:30 pm in Christ Workshop. We will resume our normal schedule of class on the first Tuesday of every month starting in October. If you have questions about the study contact Jordan through the church. God Bless and we look forward to seeing you there!
Mark your calendars for Saturday, September 27 from 9 am – 12 noon for our next servant event with the Capital Area Food Bank (8201 South Congress). For ages 8 and older. Please contact Jordan for details and to sign up to volunteer.
