Invitation to Change Lives
During September you have had the chance enjoy five videos presented by members passionate about ministries that Change Lives in our church, community and the world. If you have not had a chance to view them, check the website or our Facebook page. The videos highlighted the 80 years of compassion and help provided by the Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service. Mark Koenig explained what superheroes our Stephen Ministers are. We discovered how the quilts from First change lives in distant lands. Our Green Team presentation showed what a difference we can make by being environmentally conscious. Lastly, we learned the great news of the work ELCA World Hunger is doing to provide clean water and food. These are just five examples of how your financial contribution Changes Lives. Four more ministries will be presented in October, take time to enjoy how you are Changing Lives.
Shortly you will receive a save-the-date postcard reminding you of the dates for Invitation Week (week of October 27). During Invitation Week, we will celebrate the many ways we Change Lives with special music during worship, tasty goodies after each service and displays highlighting the many ministries at First Lutheran Church that Change Lives.
In mid-October you will receive an RSVP card for Invitation Week. You can Change more Lives by returning your card before or during the week of October 27, with a commitment to increase your financial contribution for the coming year.
Enjoy the stories! We look forward to seeing you Invitation Week.
