“God’s work. Our hands.” Sunday is an opportunity to celebrate who we are as the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America — one church, freed in Christ to serve and love our neighbor. On Sunday, Sept. 7, 2014, the nearly 10,000 congregations of this church gather to serve communities in ways that share the love of God with all of God’s people.
Locally, First Trinity member Jim Peters invites us to celebrate God's Work, Our Hands on Saturday, September 20 from 9 am - noon at Palmisano Park. Tools, gloves, snacks, and training are provided. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or if you know Jim you can contact him directly.
“When one congregation or a group of congregations gather for service in their local communities, they are the church in that place, taking care of that part of God’s vineyard.” says ELCA Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton.
Bible Study started back up - Tuesday at 7:00 pm. Potluck dinner! A study! On the Beatitudes! From Matthew and Luke!
This festival, which originated in the fourth century, celebrates the triumph of the cross. Paul reminds us that Christ crucified is the power and wisdom of God. As Moses put a serpent on a pole to be a source of healing for the Israelites, we lift high the cross as the sign of our health and salvation. Each time we make the sign of the cross we remember our baptism into the death and resurrection of Christ.
Readings: Numbers 21:4b-9, Psalm 98:1-4, 1 Corinthians 1:18-24, John 3:13-17
