Blessing for Students and Teachers

Let us pray for all who are beginning a new school year, that both students and teachers will be blessed in their academic endeavors.

Almighty God, you give wisdom and knowledge.  Grant teachers the gift of joy and insight, and students the gift of diligence and openness, that all may grow in what is good and honest and true.  Support all who teach and all who learn, that together we may know and follow your ways, through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.



The Thirteenth Sunday after Pentecost

Wisdom prepares a feast, sets her table, and invites all to come and eat her bread and drink her wine.  The first chapter of John's gospel woes much to the biblical tradition taht imagined Wisdom as existing before anything was creadted and having a role in the work of creation.  Christ, the wisdome of God (1 Cor. 1:24), today invites us to eat his flesh and drink his blood.  John's gospel includes no account of the institution of the Lord's supper, but here we can't help hearing Jesus' words as an invitation to the meal of bread and wine we share.

The Fourteenth Sunday after Pentecost

In this Sunday's gospel many people take offense at Jesus' invitation to eat his flesh and drink his blood; even many of Jesus' disciples peel off.  This is the backdrop in John's gospel for Peter's confession of faith.  "To whom can we go?" asks Peter, in words we sometimes sing just before the gospel is read.  "You have the words of eternal life."  In order to take such a stand, as Peter and Joshua did, Paul tells us to arm ourselves with the word of God.  We pray in the Spirit that we might be bold ambassadors of the gospel.

God's Work, Our Hands"

“God’s work. Our hands.” Sunday, September 9. Following the 10:30am service, we will join in the fellowship hall, forming a Thrivent Action Team. We will be creating tied fleece quilts. Many of you were present at the blessing of the quilts on July 29th, and saw the tied fleece quilt that the LSG camp children created. All ages are encouraged to participate. If you can tie a knot, you can make a quilt! The quilts will be given to Lutheran Services of Georgia for distribution to victims of disaster. The first 25 participants will receive an aqua “Live Generously” t-shirt. Lunch will be provided. Please mark your calendars to attend.

Walk Away the Pounds

We are starting "Walk Away the Pounds."  Come join the fun and walk away the pounds in a cool atmosphere.  Start time is 9:30 a.m.  We meet every other Friday.  We will be meeting for August, Friday, 24, at 9:30 a.m., in the air conditioned fellowship hall.

Quilting for Lutheran World Relief

The Quilting Group makes quilts to be shipped to third world countries.  Once a year, Lutheran World Relief will pick up the quilts that were made during the course of the year.  Our goal is 150 quilts.  You are welcome to come and help with the quilts.   In August the group will meet on the following days:

Thursdays - 2, 9 and 23 August

On Friday, 24 August and Saturday, 25 August, the trucks will be loaded up with the quilts that have been made this past year and sent out through Lutheran World Relief.  They will mostly go to refuge camps for comfort and warmth for the people living in those camps.
