When God’s People Pray
ALL-CHURCH SMALL GROUP BIBLE STUDY COMING IN OCTOBER
Prayer can change lives and circumstances like nothing else can. Discover the keys that turn prayer from a mere activity into a vital link with God and all His resources of power and grace!
Six-Session Small Bible study & discussion groups, beginning first week of October. Come sign up in the narthex for the small group of your choice.
Great friendships are formed when we gather together in a small Community Group around God's Word to talk about God's grace in our lives, share our life-stories, care for and pray for one another, and engage in an outward-focused mission. It’s an experience of what the Family of God is supposed to be!
There is no better time than the present to
Spread the Gospel!
Three new short courses (20 minutes each) will equip you to engage in spiritual conversations with your friends and neighbors. These highly interactive courses, based on the Spiritual Conversation Curve, utilize realistic scenarios to help you imagine yourself in real-world conversations with those you want to reach with the Gospel.
You can access the courses, including a short introductory video for each, here: www.lhm.org/learn.
Worship Resources for Parents
Because of COVID-19, "Kids Church" is not meeting. We hope to start up again soon! Until then, here is an excellent resource for parents to use with their children: https://theparentcue.org/faith/
Parents and grandparents are encouraged to download the Parent Cue app that can also be found on this link. This resource will provide parents and grandparents with support and encouragement for faith development. As parents, we have 936 weeks from the time our child is born until they turn 18! There is so much to teach them as they grow, but nothing more important than knowing about Jesus! This app is a weekly encouragement to parent and grandparents of children birth – 18! Check it out and share it with parents you know!
Lutheran Hour Ministries offers resources to help you reach out with the love and Good News of Jesus Christ in your everyday lives. These online courses and webinars will cover five faith-strengthening categories and use an array of multimedia elements to help you gain a hearing for the Gospel message.
LHM also offers free downloadable online Bible study videos written by pastors and other professionals. Each study has a discussion guide expanding the video footage with supporting Scripture, commentary, questions, and other features to maximize the topic.
For almost 140 years, The Lutheran Witness (LW) has served the church and proclaimed the Gospel by publishing theological essays and reflections that interpret “the contemporary world from a Lutheran perspective.”

Memory Verse Project: The church confesses to Christ, “You have the words of eternal life” (John 6:68). The church is encouraged to “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly ...” (Col. 3:16). Psalm 1 teaches us to meditate on God's Word day and night. It is our great opportunity and joy to read and study God's Word. One beneficial practice is to memorize the Scriptures and, in so doing, to meditate on it. The LCMS invites everyone to join together memorizing a verse together each week.
