Announcements

In our Prayers:   The family of Judy Thompson, who passed away on October 12.  A funeral service will be held at Messiah at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, November 5.

 

Today, we installed the following elders of Messiah Lutheran Church: Michael Boomhower, Lee Cohrs, Ken Deaver, Jim Grant, Doug Hansen, Dick Hillmann, Randy Martens, Robin Melvin, and Jim Mendes.

Ladies Night Out- Monday, October 24, at Jalisco's Mexican restaurant in Lake City (12336 31st Ave. NE) at 6 p.m. Join us and help welcome Lisa Mankin to Seattle. RSVP to Bev Edmon.           

 

The Sunday School lesson today is about the birth of Moses (Exodus 1:1-2:10).  The children will learn that God was with Moses, caring for him and protecting him.  God saved His people through Moses, who lead them out of slavery.  Where is Christ in this lesson?  God in Christ saves all people from the bondage of sin and death.  Family discussion might touch on how God loves and cares for us (First Article of the Creed) and how God delivers us from evil (lords Prayer, Seventh Petition).

 

Reminder:  Due to the Pastors Conference this week, there will be NO confirmation on Wednesday, and NO Thursday morning Bible class. Pastor Lassman will be back for the Thursday night Adult Information Class.

 

Pastors AIC class will meet this Thursday at 7 p.m. with a study on  The Ten Commandments.   Walk-ins are always welcome.

Autumn Evening will be held on Saturday, October 29 at 5 p.m.   This is such a fun time of year and, back by popular demand, will be the Puppets Please Marionettes..  A sign up sheet is located on the upstairs bulletin board.  We are asking for those attending with names starting A-M  to bring a side dish & dessert and those names starting with N-Z to bring a salad and dessert.  The “‘green kitchen crew  will be volunteering their time so please look forward to a call from Jeri Schy or Marjelee Murrell real soon.

On Wednesday, October 19th from 2 - 4 p.m., the Hearthstone Retirement Community on Green Lake is collaborating with Providence Hospice Seattle to offer a workshop featuring the support, services and care offered through community hospice programs.  These services are free of charge and can provide extra support with physical and spiritual care at the end of life.  You will leave this 2 hour gathering with helpful resources for those in your community who need extra care.  In addition to clergy, this relevant information would be useful to all persons with questions about what hospice is all about.  To sign up for this free workshop, email hschaplain@heartstone.org or call Sheryl at 206.774.5153.
