  • Would you consider becoming an assistant minister on a Sunday?

    To serve God’s people during a Sunday morning service is a powerful, amazing and holy experience.

  • Worship in the Home

    Available each week on the ELCA worship blog are materials for “Worship in the Home.” Although various formats of livestreaming worship work well in many contexts, you are encouraged to worship as you are able in homes on Sunday and throughout the week. Consider ways to pray and sing using this resource at home. If you don’t have a hymnal at home, perhaps churches might safely distribute copies for home use. In addition to Sunday worship resources, Daily Prayer in the Home is available, providing simplified forms of Morning Prayer, Evening Prayer and Night Prayer, as well as table prayers.”

  • Christ in our Home

    With the outbreaks of coronavirus disease in North America and around the world many people may be without a physical copy of Christ in Our Home. To assist with devotional life during this time, Augsburg Fortess is offering a limited-time complementary email subscription.

  • Our Retretat - So When Life gives you Snow Storms... Make Lemonade

    “SO WHEN LIFE GIVES YOU SNOW STORMS… MAKE LEMONADE!!”

    The nor’easter arriving this weekend is expected to pound Camp Koinonia badly: 

    • 20” of snow, 50+ mph winds
    • Downed trees
    • Expected loss of power
    • Local schools closing
    • Trains being suspended… 

    forced us to postpone the annual GA retreat for this weekend.  (We are hoping to reschedule soon.)

    Perhaps this doesn’t have to be a complete bust.  How about having a fun Friday “retreat night @GA?”  If you would like to meet Friday 3/2 at 7 p.m., to enjoy food, friends, faith and fun, let me know.

    We could order pizza.  You could bring a snack to share and your favorite beverage.  And we could enjoy:

    • Karaoke (competition of course)
    • Corn hole (competition of course)
    • And several other new games Linda M. has come up with (competition of course)

    If you’d like to “jump in” on this fun, please RSVP… ASAP… with LOVE!
