Vision Workshop – July 30, 6-9:00 pm

A VERY IMPORTANT GATHERING!

 

What might God have in mind for our next years of mission and ministry?

 

Come and hear what our consultants, Kairos and Associates, have to offer from the work they have been doing with us these past months. AND spend time in conversation about the future of our ministry. If you want to help make God’s work through our hands, you’re invited!

 

This invitation is for our leaders — including you — who serve in elected office, work on staff, and who lead our mission and ministry with your energy, your compassion, your talents and your financial support.

Let us come together to pray, listen and imagine together!

 

P.S. Please RSVP to info@gachurch.org if you plan to attend.

Worship at 9:00 am in the Sanctuary & 10:30 am in Luther Hall.

 

The parable we hear this coming Sunday is about a field in which both wheat and weeds are growing-which is a way to describe the church, the world, and even ourselves. Come to worship, so that hearing the word and eating the supper of the Lord can nourish your “wheat” and stifle your “weeds.”

 

Matthew 13:24-30, 36-43 – Read it at:

July 13 at 10:30 am – FROZEN in JULY Service

Note: Traditional 9:00am service will be held at its usual time using our summer liturgy.

 

Frozen, the popular animated movie, is a story of love and self-sacrifice. Using clips and songs from the movie, our worship will connect the Bible and the amazing story of two sisters. And because winter wasn’t long enough(!), we’ll enjoy frozen treats and make a snowman or two! 

 

Come dressed as your favorite character from the movie. 

 

 

If you haven’t seen the movie, we encourage you to do so before you dismiss this idea for worship. While the movie is not intentionally Christian, it lifts up themes that are central to our Lutheran Christian faith.
