bulletPastor's Bible Class, held in the Fellowship Hall, is focusing on the readings for the day.  These are designed to enhance the worship experience.

News for September
by Candy Schoppa and Jackie Watkins

The Rose Bible Study meets the third Thursday of each month, at 3:00 P.M., at 3701 69th Street.  The first session will be held September 18th.  The study will be "The Psalms and Life in God's Creation" and consists of four studies presented by two faculty members from Concordia Seminary.  Please come join us.  More information is available from Forrest or Marky Edwards (forrestwedwards@gmail.com).

Good News Bible Study will begin on September 24th at 1:30 at Church.  We meet on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month.  At our first gathering, we will be deciding our course of study for the year.  Everyone is welcome to join us, and we look forward to digging into God's Word.  Contact Jackie Watkins, jkaywatkins@hotmail.com, for more information.

The LifeLight study, Heaven and Hell, will resume in January.  If you'd like more information or to join, please contact Jane Goodpasture, 793-1981

Midweek classes will be held 6:30 - 7:45 p.m., each Wednesday evening, starting September 17th -- watch the bulletin for more information.  We will be providing snacks only (no meals) this year except for special occasions which will be advertised as they come up.  Everyone come and plan to learn a lot on these Wednesday evenings.

CONFIRMATION CLASS ORIENTATION:  September 11th, at 6:30 p.m.  Students who will begin confirmation classes (or continue from last year) and a parent are all required to attend this time of orientation with Pastor Grunklee.  The meeting will cover expectations, materials, and any questions you may have.  If this time and date does not work for you, PLEASE CONTACT PASTOR GRUNKLEE so that another time can be scheduled.

Children's Sunday School classes are concluding the summer schedule with "The Colors and Seasons of the Church Year".  Summer has flown by, and we are gearing up for a new Sunday School year.  On September 7, every member of Christ Lutheran congregation is invited to attend our Open House/Sunday School kickoff.  We will meet in the sanctuary for opening.  Our hope is that our adult members as well as our children will see the blessings that the rotation Sunday School has given us during the past year.  After the opening, we will divide into four groups and go for a brief lesson in each of our four stations for Seasons and Colors of the Church Year.  Coffee and muffins will be available after the tour.  We look forward to seeing everyone there!

We're still planning to pain the Sunday School rooms before the end of the year.  There has been input from the Sunday School students about how they want the rooms decorated, and we're hoping to have walls that they can design themselves.  More information will be coming on that.

We are also exploring options for the high school class.  We know the students are out there, we'd love for them to come to Sunday School!

We can always use volunteers willing to teach or sub.  Don't be shy; just step right up and let us hear from you.  Be ready to truly enjoy working with our delightful children.

As we come to the close of our term as Christian Growth Co-Chairmen, we pray that when the nomination committee calls with requests to serve that each of you will look on the request as an opportunity to serve and, in turn, receive many blessings!  We all love the children and hope that each one of them will continue to grow in Christ.

Vacation Bible School was held June 22 - 26, 2014

VBS was such a blessed experience.  The joyous sounds of nearly 50 children learning to "Trust in God" filled our building inside and out.  We again thank our volunteers who taught, cooked, registered, led, acted, and filled various other roles.  You made this event possible.  Pictures can be viewed on the hall bulletin board.  Our Socks for Soldiers program netted more than 100 pairs of cotton socks for this most worthy cause.

Summer Sunday School

Summer Sunday School is focusing on the miracles of Jesus and the colors of the seasons.  We can always use volunteers willing to teach or sub.  Don't be shy; just step right up and let us hear from you.  Be ready to truly enjoy working with our delightful children.
