4th and 5th Graders to Learn about Prayer and the Lord’s Prayer
On Wednesday Jan 14th all 4th and 5th graders and their parents will meet with Pastor Lisa and Intern Barb in the fellowship hall for a class on prayer and the Lord’s Prayer. Come prepared to experience all different forms of prayer and to learn what the Bible has to say about prayer. Please sign up by calling the church office no later than Monday the 12th so pastor can have supplies ready for everyone.
On Saturday January 17th at 9:00 a.m. Pastor Lisa will be starting a once a month Knitting and Crochet group. We will meet one Saturday morning a month to come together and work on Prayer Shawls, caps for newborns, hats for Chemo patients and any other projects we would like to take on. If you have always wanted to learn to knit or crochet, bring your needles, hooks and yarn and we will be happy to teach you! The coffee pot will be on, snacks will be served and laughs shared! Join us in the Gathering Space for a great time together! Questions regarding this new ministry can be directed to Pastor Lisa.
With the addition of the conference room we will begin holding a variety of Adult Forums. These forums will begin January 11th with Art and Bev Lupkes speaking on their recent trip to Africa. On January 18th Pastor Lisa will lead a discussion on the Gospel According to the Waterloo Courier. Please grab your cup of coffee, your soda and a cookie and join us in the conference room for these wonderful sessions!

During Worship on November 2nd we will remember and pay respect and honor to all those who have died in the past year. (Since All Saints Sunday 2013). During All Saints Sunday we are reminded that we are always surrounded by those who have gone before us and those who come after us. When we feast each Sunday at the communion table we are also joined with those who already share in the feast in their heavenly home. During this worship service we also recognize that for many the grieving continues well past the closing of the grave, yet we have the promise and hope that comes from the gift of Jesus Christ dying and rising for us. Please join us on this very special Sunday to remember those who have been part of our faith community and who have completed their baptism.
