New Day Sermon first sunday in lent In what ways are you tempted? Does the phrase “Never Enough” ever summarize how you see the world? Check out how God fills our lives to the top.
The first Sunday in Lent begins with tension. The tension between the saving and destructive powers of water fills today’s lectionary readings. The waters of the flood overwhelmed the world in the days of Noah, yet God delivered Noah and his family from death. The Holy Spirit descends on Jesus only after his baptism by…

Presented by Andrew Steele, Director of Global Church Sponsorship of the ELCA and Rahel Williams, ELCA Global Church Sponsorship team member, during Sunday School hour in the Youth Lounge.

Crosspoints meets February 18 in the Conference Room to start a four session series, Co-Existing with World Beliefs. Today’s session covers Buddhism and Hinduism, led by Vicar Pal. Next week, February 25th, the World Beliefs session will cover Judaism, led by Vicar Pal and guest speaker, Rabbi Rami Pavolotzky. Today, Faith and Values will join with Adult Forum on the topic “Guests from Afar” with Andrew Steele and Rahel Williams, Global Ministry Representatives of the ELCA in the Youth Lounge. Next week, Faith and Values will meet in Room 100 with the topic “The Reconciler”.
Vicar Pal’s project, Co-Existing with World Beliefs, is a series of four Crosspoints classes to compare/contrast four major, non-Christian religions and atheism with Christianity. The goal of the sessions is to facilitate discussion on ways we, as Christians can co-exist with members of these groups despite the differences.
This class meets Thursday nights from 7:00 – 8:00 p.m. in the Youth Lounge. The group will discuss Paul’s letters and his own personal journey through faith and how he taught in Jesus’ name. Everyone is welcome and the class will be discussion-based to emphasize our collective journey in community.
Each Sunday from 9:15 to 10:15 a.m. in the Library, this class will explore in depth the Gospel reading for that day.
We will meet on Wednesday, February 21st and will be studying Mark 9:30-49. The class meets Wednesdays from 9:30 – 11:00 a.m. in the Café. Bring a Bible and a friend. Modest snacks, coffee and tea are provided.
PUB THEOLOGY will take place this Tuesday, February 20th at 6:30 p.m. at Carrabba’s Italian Restaurant off Oregon Pike.

RSVP to Sister Dottie if you can attend.
THE SACRAMENT OF HOLY BAPTISM will next be offered on Saturday, March 31st at the 6:00 p.m. Easter Vigil Service. Interested persons should speak with Pastor Craig or Pastor Sarah.
You are invited to a luncheon on Sunday, February 25th after the second service in the Café.

There are many ministries that could use your Thrivent dollars. If you can attend, contact Sister Dottie Almoney at email@example.com.
You are invited to a New Member Reunion on February 25th during the 9:15 a.m. Sunday School hour. We will meet at 9:15 a.m. in the Church Café for light refreshments, time to re-meet some of your classmates and shepherds, and good fellowship. See you there!
