Know Christ! Live Christ! Make Christ Known!
The time has come to subscribe (or renew your subscription) to the “Lutheran Witness” for 2022. Subscriptions are $14.25, and you can make your check out to Faith Lutheran with “Lutheran Witness” in the memo line. Mail it to Faith Lutheran Church, 4010 Williams Dr., Georgetown, TX 78628. The check for the subscription needs to be a separate check from your offering. Checks are due in the church office by Monday, October 11.
Please confirm your mailing address, as well!
By ordering together, the annual subscription to the “Lutheran Witness” is $5.74 less than a single subscription. Plus, you receive The “Texas Messenger” as a bonus with the “Lutheran Witness.” Contact the church office if you have any questions.
What Is A Lay Reader? A lay reader is a person who reads the scripture lessons during our worship services. Public scripture reading is an important ministry as the reader becomes a vehicle for sharing God’s word with the congregation.
Who Can Be A Lay Reader? Members of Faith who have the gift and commitment to read. This is a very practical way to invite people to become more involved with our church.
A schedule for the 2022 lay readers will be published before the end of this year. You will receive a copy of the worship guide from the church office a few days before your scheduled date, so you can prepare and review the scripture reading.
BAGS TO MATS NEEDS BAGS! After taking the summer a little slower, we are back in full force. So we are again asking everyone to donate their clean HEB type bags to make mats for the homeless. And we invite everyone to join us on Friday, 15 October at 10:00 in Rm 116 for our next BAGS to MATS meeting. We need people to cut, loop and crochet, and we’ll teach you how. Hope to see you there!
The next meeting is Sunday, November 14. Going forward from then, the group will meet on the Second Sunday of month in Room B116, 5:30-7:30 p.m.. We will use a six-session study titled “The Dwelling Place of God: Lessons from Ezra and Haggai,” which highlights God’s longing to dwell among us. To let us know you are interested or for more information, contact Jill Meyer or CLICK HERE. (There will not be a meeting Oct. 10.)
