Do you enjoy music? Would you like to ring handbells? Maybe a family member or friend would like to learn with you. The bell choir practices weekly and plays in both services once a month. If you’d like to learn to play bells, please contact Dorothy and we will arrange training.
Today’s Sunday School lesson is about Jacob and his family from Genesis 29:1-30:24. The children will learn that through Jacob’s family, God brought forth the Savior, Jesus Christ, who endured lies, deception, and the schemes of sinful humankind to work our salvation on the cross. Families can discuss how we sin when we lie or deceive others and how such actions show that we don’t trust God to provide and care for us. Ask your children if they have ever suffered because of someone’s lies. Talk about how Jesus suffered and died for us on the cross. Talk about the first commandment and how it relates to this Bible story.
This fall, consider signing up for electronic giving. Messiah Lutheran Church offers an easy way to give on a recurring basis. To give electronically, visit www.messiahseattle.org and locate the link to the electronic giving page. If you have any questions, please contact Kathee in the church office.
