Sunday School at Home

Check out this wonderful collection of online Sunday School resources for each week. There is something for all ages, including adults, such as video or podcast links (Bible stories for kids, devotions, adult Bible studies); music links for both kids and adults; games, activities and coloring pages, and more. Take a look!

This week we focus on Pentecost. There are LOTS of resources this week to help you share and discuss the Bible story through lessons, videos, songs, activities and crafts, a recipe, and more. And if you make any of the crafts or activities with your kids, please send a picture or video to Megan Abbott to pass it along to your Sunday School teacher. We all miss you!

Online Devotions

Join Pastor Edwards and Pastor Beck for online devotions on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Tune in on Facebook, whether you have a preschooler or not, for a short break in your day and word of encouragement! Chapel is posted live, usually mid-day, but can be viewed later as well. The devotions are shared throughout the week on Facebook and/or YouTube.

Bible Study

Join us for Bible study on Thursdays at 7 pm. Each week in our new video series, Christianity and the Competition, featuring Dr. Paul Maier, we will examine the beliefs and doctrines of other world religions, comparing them with our confession of Christ Crucified for our Salvation. To attend, email Pastor Beck to request the link. We hope you’ll join us!

LWML

The LWML District Convention scheduled for next month will not be gathering in person, but there are still business matters that need to occur, such as voting for mission grants, electing officers, and approving bylaw changes. As a local society, our group at Faith/ULu can have two voting delegates at the District Convention. All information is provided to the voting delegates ahead of time so they can read and pray for God’s guidance.

Delegates will need to submit their credential form via email by May 30 and attend a delegate orientation via Zoom on June 18 or 19. Voting will take place electronically on June 20. If you are willing and able to be a voting delegate for our society, please contact Megan Abbott as soon as possible.

Spirit Camp

Spirit Camp 2020 will be available via a virtual and take-home format.

  • SERVANTEENS/VOLUNTEERS! We still need your help! We are making introduction videos: email Katie Sensabaugh if you’d like to participate.
  • Take-home bags will be available for those families who registered beginning SUNDAY JUNE 14. Watch for details beginning June 7.

Hymn Sing

Did you know that the author of Children of the Heavenly Father wrote the text when she was seventeen years old? Or that the original words of We Know That Christ Is Raised used scientific terminology to illustrate the doctrine of baptism to secular researchers? Attend our hymn sing & exploration to learn about your own favorites. If wyou would prefer not to sing, just listen and enjoy! Join us next Wednesday from 7-7:45pm via Zoom. For details, click HERE. Or email Dr. Priscilla Gabriel with questions.

There are continuing changes and adaptations to the schedule and routines in the Faith Lutheran community right now.  To see the full calendar of events, click the button below.

In John 17 we hear Jesus praying His High Priestly Prayer, and He’s praying for you; He’s praying for your church family. He wants you to be people of His Word and Name unified as one Body with Him as the Head. His Body should function as ONE with Him as the Head and every member of the Body having a unique but unified function together as one for the purpose of His Kingdom.

Read John 17 today at home, and then pray for His will to be first done in your individual life and collectively as a unified church family. Pray that your life would be an answer to Jesus’ prayer that His will may be done to carry out His purpose in the world that needs the Good News of salvation.
