No matter how long you have been on the Christian journey, or how high or low your path has taken you, this class will boost your faith and build your fellowship circle! You will read and hear things long forgotten or freshly learned. It's a "don't miss" event; the whole family will benefit! Come to the Parlor at 9:30 or 10:30 am and every Sunday until November 22.

We would like to prepare a pool of adult volunteers (21 and older) that is big enough to create a schedule where each volunteer is needed only once each month. Call Mike Charles at 337-0940 if you are interested in joining this year's pool. The schedule for attendants is created one month in advance and we can work with your busy calendar. Background checks are required for all nursery workers. Information on that can be found by calling Michelle at 468-4065.

FEEDING THE HOMELESS MINISTRY –“Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? Then the King will reply, I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did it for me.” Matthew 25:37, 40. The homeless shelter at St. John will open Nov 1st. Last spring, Our Saviour members provided several meals for the residents and we would like to continue this ministry with a commitment of providing one dinner each month. We will receive a schedule of available dates for dinners from the shelter in early October. Meals (for approximately 45 people) need to be cooked outside the shelter and brought to the shelter ready to be served by 5:30pm. We need people to help plan the menu and also to prepare and serve the meal. Donations of milk, fruit, soup, paper products, or money to purchase items are always appreciated. Anyone wishing to work with us in this ministry should contact Linda Callesen, 468-4819, Caroline Arndt 469-3140, or Gloria Morgan 468-6881. A lot of kneeling will keep you in good standing.

LIFE QUOTE – ―Above all things, my faith motivates me to do as much as I can and strive to do more in the pro-life movement. As a child of God, I know a truth that is stronger than anything the world can throw at me—the power of eternal life through Christ. I cannot, because of who I am as a child of God, keep silent as my own generation is denied the chance to exist.‖ Janice Nihill, a 17-year-old senior and student pro-life leader at the 2008 March for Life in Washington D.C. This “Life Quote” is from Lutherans for Life –www.lutheransforlife.org
