Remember the Sabbath Day by keeping it holy. How do we keep it holy? By hearing God’s Word, and specifically the Good News of the forgiveness of sins for Jesus’ sake. Not everyone understood that’s what the Sabbath was about, though. A lot of people thought the Sabbath was about showing God how well-behaved we are. Come hear Jesus give us Good News on the Sabbath as we celebrate the 17th Sunday after Trinity this weekend.
Our Dayschool children will be singing in church this Sunday. What a joyful gift that these little ones and their families will join us in hearing God’s Word and in singing His praises together. After the service, join us in the gym for an ICE CREAM SOCIAL put on by the Outreach Committee. It’s a way to welcome our school families and make them feel at home with our Zion Family. We WILLhave Learning the Faith, though a little bit shorter version.
Also on Sunday, we’ll be doing some YOUTH PLANNING at 11:30. BOE is buying lunch and we’ll discuss plans for the year. We’ll talk about the Higher Things Conference next summer too. Youth and parents from Middle school and into college are all welcome to come and talk about the things we’d like to do together this year.
This Sunday is also our first FAMILY GAME NIGHT, at 4pm. Bring your favorite tabletop card and boardgames and some snacks to share. Come learn a new game or play some old favorites. All ages are welcome and we’ll have games for all levels to try.
Next Sunday we’ll be going to Richardson’s Farm to enjoy the corn maze, wagon rides, and all the other Fall fun. Please sign up in the Narthex. If we can get 30 people, we’ll get a discounted rate.
Operation Christmas Child is up and running again. Our goal is to fill 150 shoeboxes full of fun and useful gifts for children around the world. More information is in the bulletin this week and each week we’ll be concentrating on collecting certain items. Thanks for making this mission project a huge success!
See you in the Divine Service this weekend!
In Christ, Pastor Buetow
