First Trinity E-News

This Sunday is our annual Oktoberfest... and it is going to be fun!  Starting with outdoor worship at 10:30, and the Oktoberfest celebration starts at 1.  Join us for great food including Brats, Tom Fashing's Famous Kraut and more (something for the vegans too!)  We'll play Nagelspielen, dance the Chicken Dance, and kids will make Pretzel Necklaces.  We have raffles including neat prizes from the Cubs, Bears and White Sox!

Oktoberfest is our biggest fundraiser of the year, and we feel blessed that so many of our friends join us.  The money we raise will help us in our plans to expand God's Closet and start a new Sunday School program in the next year.  

Bible Study is going great - Tuesday at 7:00 pm. Potluck dinner! A study! On the Beatitudes! From Matthew and Luke! Next week - Blessed are the meek, led by Katie Jacob!

Our friends at South Loop Campus Ministry have their monthly Community Meal this Sunday.  All Are Welcome.

Jesus' parable about two sons who don't do what they say reveals surprises in the reign of God, such as prostitutes and tax collectors going before others into God's kingdom. In the reading from Ezekiel the people question whether the ways of the Lord are unfair; instead they are to repent and turn to the Lord. Paul urges us to look to Christ as a model of humility, looking to the interests of others above our own. Nourished by the broken bread and shared cup, we offer our lives for the sake of our needy world.

Readings: Ezekiel 18:1-4, 25-32, Psalm 25:1-9, Philippians 2:1-13, Matthew 21:23-32
