Lutheran churches around the world commemorate this event and the freedom we have in our justification before God by Christ Jesus. There is a sign-up sheet in the Narthex to reserve a pumpkin for those interested in the carving activity. The Reformation Picnic with program begins at Noon.

Life Quotes


We cannot claim to see God by His Word, to be followers and to not speak out against the hatred towards His creation that exists today. ‘Pro-choice’ is sitting in God’s throne and making decisions that only He should make. Euthanasia is also the same.” Rev. Perry Hart, guest speaker on “The Lutheran Hour” – A Life Quote from Lutherans For Life • www.lutheransforlife.org

Stewardship


Luke 17:19 – “And he said to him, ‘Rise and go your way; your faith has made you well.’ ”
Only one of the 10 lepers who were cleansed returned to give thanks to Jesus. Why is that? Surely the rest were indeed thankful to be freed from such a terrible disease. But only the Samaritan leper had faith, and his faith turned into action, as all true faith does. Our generosity to God’s work in the Church is likewise our faith in action
