STEWARDSHIP
SUNDAY


 

We are calling for all members who are able, to attend our annual Stewardship Sunday at 10AM this Sunday and to bring pledge cards for a special offering.  It will be a special service with a message from Stewardship Chair Lori Marquez and meditations around scriptures focused on generosity, gratitude and stewardship, with only a short concluding sermon.  Please plan to come!
 
Following the service on Sunday please join the Mission Team on November 14th at 11AM in the Fireside Room for a special guest on zoom.  Pastor Josh has arranged speakers from other congregations to share inspiring and innovative stories of mission transformation.  On Sunday, Pastor Erik Samuelson and leaders from LINC NW (Leveraging Innovation and Networking Communities) https://www.lincnw.org/ and Faith Lutheran https://www.flclakewood.org/ will speak with us live from Washington State via Zoom on our new big TV Screen.  Their witness will help our members see an example a church whose call was transformed by a partnership with a nonprofit.  The nonprofit was started by Pastor Josh and Pastor Erik in 2012 and has evolved into this mission within a specific community in Washington in partnership with a Lutheran congregation.

As we remember gratitude this Sunday as a congregation, please continue to remember the service that our veterans have offered our nation and communities. 

 
On Saturday, November 13th at 5pm Reagan Louise Hurst will be baptized by Pastor Josh with sponsors, friends, family, and First Lutheran members bearing witness and celebrating her re-birthday into Christ’s family.
