Adult Summer Sunday School

Summer is almost upon us and with it a new opportunity to study the Word of God. All adults are invited to meet in the Fellowship Hall with Pastor Ray to learn the “Stuff they didn’t teach me in Sunday School about Genesis.” We’ve all heard the Genesis stories before – Adam and Eve, the fall into sin, God’s promise to Abraham, Jacob’s ladder, the fall and rise of Joseph…. This study reveals the seldom heard back-story behind the popular accounts we learned as kids. For more information contact Family Life Minister Curtis or Pastor Ra

Did you know GSLC sent dozens of quilts to the needy survivors of Hurricane Michael? And dozens more to LWML and the Orphan Train?

The need continues but the workers are few. Did you just say, “I don’t quilt?” But… can you iron a sheet; cut squares of fabric; tie knots with pieces of yarn? We need you to volunteer Wednesday morning to do those things.

Come between 9:30 – 10:00 and give us some precious time and help! Feel free to bring a lunch if you choose to stay until noon, so you can get to know our “Quilting Bees” and our “Knotty Ladies

The Word of God (Made flesh, Written, Preached, and Visible) is central to our worship services. We respond with music using one voice to give thanks and to rejoice. Music influences us in setting tone and mood.

Thanks to the generosity of others and the “Lois Henry and Friends” Keys for the Kingdom concert, we currently have $49,531 toward the replacement goal of $70,000. Please consider donating

Life Quotes

The good things that fathers do for their children and give to their children are blessings from God, for fathers and mothers are God’s representatives to their children. As disciplinarians they are representatives of His holiness. As providers they are representatives of His goodness and generosity. As teachers of the Gospel they are representatives of His grace. And as representatives not only do they act toward their children on God’s behalf, they also demonstrate to them who their God is and what He is like, for it is His blessings that they bring to their children.” From the “Lutheran Spokesman” – A Life Quote from Lutherans For Life•
