Lutherans for Life
Lutherans for Life is an independent organization that started in the 1970's. This organization is not only focused on abortion related issues, but also focuses on issues such as assisted suicide, artificial insemination, end of life care, bioethics and more.
Dr. Jim Lamb, the Executive Director of Lutherans for Life, will be speaking at Concordia Lutheran in Hagerstown on August 23rd. We are encouraging as many people as possible to attend.
This year's picnic will be held on Sunday September 7th at the Ruritan Park. The picnic will be after the service at the church. St. Paul's will provide fried chicken and participants are to bring a side dish or dessert. Please let the church know if you plan to attend so we can order enough fried chicken.
In September, the Adult Sunday School Class will be using an adult Bible study from Concordia Publishing entitled "Growing In Christ". It is a study of many of the familiar stories from the book of Genesis, and everyone is invited to join in at any time. Do not feel you must come every week, but please feel free to attend when you can.
In addition Pastor Culler will begin a study of the Gospel of Matthew on Monday September 8th. As alway these studies will take place on Monday night at 7 pm and on Tuesday moring at 10:30 am. You may attend either class because they will be at the same place in the text. Pastor Culler expects the class to take several months to finish.
We have several times offered a class we call Basic Christianity. It is a 10 week program that begins with the question "How do I know God exists?" and ends with a study of the topic, "How do I live as a person of faith in this world today?"
Basic Christianity is a good opportunity for us to invite friends who want to know more about God and Christianity in general. It is also a good refresher for people who are already in the faith, but want to get back to basics a bit.
The Basic Christianity class wil begin on Wednesday night October 22nd at 7 pm and continue until completed.
