How Lutherans Interpret the Bible - Library/Chapel

500th Anniversary of the Reformation

Martin Luther began a reformation by wanting people to read the Bible. Lutherans today are urged to continue this practice. But often, we do not read it in the same way as other Christians. Why not? 


This class will be held in March and April, and follow a video series by Dr. Mark Allen Powell, a Biblical professor at Trinity Lutheran Seminary in Columbus. Dr. Powell is insightful as well as very down to earth. Roger Johnson will lead the discussion.

Class will be held Tuesdays, March 7 & 14 and April 4 at 9am in the library.

Change for Children - Polka Dots/Stripes & Noisy Offering

Contact
Kirsten Kelly

Lent

Buy a Brick! 

Each year, the Sunday School kids have the tradition of collecting a special offering in the spring that helps other children in some way... we call it Change for Children! This takes place on five Sundays and the kids are encouraged to bring in their change/bills and dress up in fun ways! The theme days are listed below and we invite everyone to participate. 
  • March 5: Dress Your Best
  • March 12: PJ Day
  • March 19: Bright Colors
  • March 26: Camo Day
  • April 9: Polka Dot/Stripes (& Noisy Offering)
The money raised this spring will help build a library in Zambia, Africa for our mission partner, Village of Hope. The library will require 9,000 bricks (which will be made in Africa by local people), each costing about $3. Construction is slated to begin this summer and will take about 6 months to complete. If every Sunday School child brought in just $10 over the course of the 5 weeks, we’d raise $3,150 which is over 10% of the project cost and more than we’ve ever raised before! Help us to reach our goal (at least $3,000) and share the love of reading with children at Village of Hope!

Buds and Blossoms: God Says It With Flowers 

This year's theme will send everyone into the growing world of the garden. What do those flowers have to say? Guest speaker Susan Palo Cherwien will dig into that theme, using her creativity as a writer. 
"The theme is especially relevant to me, as I worked at a nursery for 15 years, and gardening is one of my great joys. If one looks over the hymn texts I have written, the raft of nature images becomes pretty obvious!"

Look for appearances from some of Zion's gardeners, special music for the morning, and a delicious catered brunch. 

Cost is $12/adults and $4/12 years and younger.
