18th Sunday after Pentecost - October 13, 2019

· Next Sunday Bible Study: "In the Beginning, God" After our study of Philemon we will begin a study of Creation, from God's Perspective. To aid us in this study we will be reading the book "In the Beginning, God" by Prof. Joel Heck from Concordia University, Austin. Pastor has purchased 10 copies of the book. They are available for $5 each. You can find a payment envelope in the table in the Narthex. Please read ahead to prepare for discussion.

· Wednesday Bible Study: “Religious Bodies in America” Our study will be a comparison of Church Bodies in America beginning with the standard “Lutheranism”. Each week the class will have a say as to which Church Body we study the next week.

· Life Quote: 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
